PrizePicks NFL Fantasy: 2021 Quarterback Props
It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, these props at PrizePicks are subject to change. So if you like these NFL picks below, it is wise to jump on them quickly. Also note that the NFL added a 17th game for this season.
Derek Carr: Over 4050.5 Yards Passing
This pick with Derek Carr is an easy one. There is not a single good reason for the prop to be set this low. He passed for 4,103 yards last season and 4,054 yards the year prior. Plus, he only narrowly failed to pass over this in 2018, as he finished with 4,049 yards.
Awesemo’s play prop tool is projecting Carr for 4,261 yards, giving the over on this prop a 56% chance to hit. Again, it is easy to see why given the extra game and adding John Brown to the receiving corps.
Ryan Fitzpatrick: Over 3900.5 Yards Passing
This prop for Ryan Fitzpatrick is essentially picking if he will be the starter the entire season or not. He gives Washington the best chance to win, and it is not close. This, combined with a good receiving corps that includes backfield weapons, should lead to high passing totals. Awesemo’s prop tool gives the over a 65% chance to hit, projecting Fitzpatrick for 4,453 yards passing. If he is the starter for Washington this entire season, this will be one of the easiest future props of the season.
Russell Wilson: Over 4250.5 Yards Passing
Russell Wilson has never missed a game in his career, so he will fully take advantage of the 17th game this season. The Seahawks are also expected to open up their offense, much like they did at the start of last season when Wilson was an MVP candidate. The new offensive coordinator and draft pick of D’Wayne Eskridge reinforce this opinion. Awesemo’s prop tool projects Wilson for 4,403 yards, giving the over a 54% chance to hit. Assuming he stays healthy, this should be an easy over, and Wilson could find his name back in the MVP conversation this season.
