Best 2018 NFL player prop bets

Which NFL player props provide the most value for the 2018 season? Getty Images

The 2018 NFL season is just days away, which means we have about as much information we can possibly get to make the best player prop decisions.

After comparing my 2018 player projections to William Hill's list of player props for the upcoming season, the below categories jumped out as areas where we can take advantage.


More rushing yards: Le'Veon Bell (-135) or Kareem Hunt (+115)

Hunt paced the NFL with 1,327 rushing yards last season but accomplished the feat on only 272 carries (sixth-most). Granted, 272 is a big number, but it's particularly large for an Andy Reid offense. Consider that Reid's running-back units have ranked no better than 20th in carries over the past 11 seasons (26.3 average finish), and that includes 30th in 2017. With Spencer Ware healthy and Damien Williams signed, Hunt is a good bet for a reduction in carries (projection: 236) and a dip in efficiency (projection: 4.23 yards per carry).
