Week 3 of the NFL season kicks off tonight with an interstate battle between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins. Here are a few player props from DraftKings for the Dolphins this Thursday Night.
Preston Williams OVER 44.5 Yards Receiving (-134)
I am willing to forgive Williams’ struggles so far this year, just three catches in two games, because of the brutal matchups he was dealing with.
Opening the season against the Patriots and Bills is no fun for any offense so Preston gets a pass from me.
What is encouraging is his 12 targets over those two games.
The Dolphins are looking to get him the ball and those targets will likely pay off this week. I fully expect a high scoring game, as do many, between these interstate rivals.
With DeVante Parker’s hamstring issues, this could leave the door open for Williams to really step up and have a bit of a breakout game tonight.
Mike Gesicki OVER 49.5 Receiving Yards (-135)
Gesicki is coming off a very impressive week 2 performance against a stout Bills offense and that gives me hope for a repeat game against the Jaguars.
Gesicki snagged eight balls for 130 yards and a touchdown and now faces a Jaguars team that are regularly carved up by tight ends.
This is really a perfect spot and I think this line is wildly underestimiating Gesicki to put together back to back stud perfomances.
Ryan Fitzpatrick OVER 1.5 Passing TD’s (-124)
Right out of the gate I should say that I like Fitzpatrick a lot hare, at least in terms of his O/U betting lines for this game.
The focus here is on his TD passes, but you can’t go wrong betting on Fitzmagic tonight.
The Jags secondary was already taken to town by Ryan Tannehill and didn’t look all that sharp in their week 1 victory over the Colts.
Realistically speaking, its not a lot to ask for most NFL QB’s to throw for more than 1 TD any given Sunday and this matchup is a prime spot for Fitz.
The full game total is right around 48, which suggests a competitive but high scoring matchup.
I am not too worried about the injuries to the offense because we know Fitz loves to spread the ball around and is capable of utilizing the talent at his disposal.
Also, lets not forget, Fitzpatrick threw for 328 y ards and a pair of TD’s against a much stronger Bills team.
