With training camps across the league underway, the attention of the sports world is again shifting back to the NFL. NFL fantasy football draft season is also right around the corner. For those wanting to get in on the NFL DFS action now with some season-long predictions, PrizePicks is the choice for you.

PrizePicks provides a big list of stats and fantasy points, and users can choose for which bets they want to make a prediction. Stringing together a few picks can pay out up to 10 times the entry fee. Users are even able to combine picks across different sports. The only rule is they must make picks for players on at least two different teams.

For the sake of this article, we will keep our focus on football and the 2021 NFL season. Here are three NFL fantasy picks you can make right now for this upcoming season.

PrizePicks NFL Fantasy: 2021 Season Receiving 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.

Rob Gronkowski: Over 495.5 Yards Receiving

When discussing NFL props for the upcoming season, it is important to remember that the league added a 17th game to the schedule.

Rob Gronkowski has never had less than 540 yards in a season. Never. The prop line of 495.5 is clearly too low, despite Gronk not getting any younger. He started last season slow, as he had to play himself into shape last season. Gronkowski found out that Florida football shape is a very different thing, due to the heat and humidity.

He eventually got going, finishing the season with 623 yards. While the tight end room and the receivers overall have a lot of talent, Gronkowski’s role is safe and his connection with Tom Brady is obvious. His limited workload also keeps him fresh throughout the entire season, which will have an added game for him to rack up receiving yards.

Jared Cook: Over 525.5 Yards Receiving

PrizePicks currently has Jared Cook listed as a member of the New Orleans Saints. They may be projecting his stats as a member of the Saints as well, but he is actually the starter for the Los Angeles Chargers, taking over for Hunter Henry. In 14 games, Henry had 93 targets and 613 yards last season, which tells us what kind of role Cook is stepping into.

Cook dealt with less-than-average quarterback play last season, but still finished with 504 yards in 15 games. He totaled 688 or more in each of the three seasons prior. Cook will be a big part of the Chargers offense this year, pushing towards 600 yards.

Will Fuller: Under 875.5 Yards Receiving

While the NFL has its first 17-game season this year, Will Fuller will only have 16, as he is suspended for the first game of the season. On top of that, Fuller has proven to be injury prone his entire career. In fact, he is already being held out of practice due to an undisclosed injury.

Added to the health concerns, Fuller also gets a downgrade at quarterback, going from Deshaun Watson to Tua Tagovailoa. There are a lot of question marks with this Miami Dolphins passing attack. Last season was also the only year Fuller totaled over 875.5 yards, and he still only had 879. I’m not assuming a switch to Miami will result in the best season of his career.
