FanDuel Week 5 NFL Best Bets: Thursday Night Football
Chris Carson Over 46.5 Yards Rushing
Carson is listed as questionable for the game after showing up on the Seahawks injury report with a neck injury. Carson has had his ups and downs this season. He is coming off a difficult game against a San Francisco defense that has allowed 100 yards rushing in each of the first four games, yet he totaled just 30 yards on 13 carries on Sunday.
Carson has produced two strong games this season, running for 80 yards against both Minnesota and Indianapolis. He also has two runs of at least 30 yards and is averaging 4.3 yards per attempt — which ranks 25th in the league — and over 13 carries per game. If given the green light to go tonight, Carson has a strong matchup against a Rams defense that is allowing 4.7 yards per carry and the 13th-most yards to opposing running backs (381). Los Angeles allowed Arizona Chase Edmonds and James Conner to combine for 170 yards rushing last week, and Chicago’s David Montgomery surpassed the century mark on the ground against the Rams in Week 1.
Carson has 69 yards or more in each of his four matchups against the Rams and is projected for 67.12 tonight, with the likeliness of the over hitting 82% of the time. The return on investment is listed at 56%.
Darrell Henderson Jr. Under 64.5 Yards Rushing
Henderson has gotten off to a strong start to the season. He ranks 13th in the NFL at 4.9 yards per carry and is tied for 27th with 43 carries. He has topped 70 yards on the ground in two of his three games this year. Henderson has been dealing with a lingering rib injury, but he has an outstanding matchup against a porous Seahawks run defense. Still, he is only projected for 58.18 yards rushing, with the likelihood of the under hitting listed at 65%. The expected return of investment is listed at 21%.
Freddie Swain Under 2.5 Receptions
Swain has been an enigma this year, as his production and playing time have fluctuated dramatically through the first four games. He has been pretty efficient when he gets touches and is coming off a three-catch performance against San Francisco last week. Swain has nine receptions on 12 targets for 125 yards and two touchdowns while playing nearly 62% of the Seahawks snaps. He is projected for 1.74 receptions tonight, with at 75% of going under. The expected return on investment is 16%.
