Week 17 ended up being my worst of the season with Kenny Golladay not even suiting up, Ryan Griffin seeing no time despite the coach’s suggestions, and both Stefon Diggs and Travis Kelce just falling short of their marks. On the bright side, our Season-long player prop bets finally cashed and my picks went 4-2. It could have been even better if Ezekiel Elliott had scored just two rushing or receiving touchdowns in his final three games, but it wasn’t meant to be. Onto Wildcard Weekend.
Chris Carson Over 19 carries
I’m not entirely sure how sportsbooks set player props, but they certainly don’t put enough weight into trending performances. Chris Carson has been the centerpiece of the Seahawks offense for the past four weeks and has received 19 > 27 > 22 >22 carries.
With the Seahawks traveling to Dallas as one-point underdogs, this game should stay relatively close either way, allowing both teams to execute their run-heavy, ball-control game plan. Nineteen carries has been his floor the past few weeks, and he has the upside to approach 30.
