Week 17 ended up being my worst of the season with Kenny Golladay not even suiting up, Ryan Griffin seeing no time despite the coachâ€™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 wasnâ€™t meant to be. Onto Wildcard Weekend.
Chris Carson Over 19 carries
Iâ€™m not entirely sure how sportsbooks set player props, but they certainly donâ€™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.
