NFL DFS Lineup Picks DraftKings FanDuel Optimizer Groups Tournament Strategy

NFL Week 2 begins with an NFC East battle in Washington on Thursday Night Football. With the start of the NFL season, the Awesemo team has launched the NFL Player Props Tool, covering each of the major prop categories for each week throughout 2021’s season. We will analyze all the odds at various sportsbooks to identify the best NFL player props available based on the Tool’s projected values and odds of success. Below are three of the best NFL prop bets for tonight’s Giants vs. Football Team TNF matchup.

Thursday Night Football NFL Player Props

Daniel Jones Over 20.5 Yards Rushing (-113, FanDuel Sportsbook)

While questions about his passing remain, Daniel Jones’ rushing has been fairly reliable. The Awesemo NFL Player Props Tool projects Jones for 29.46 yards rushing against Washington, a 70% expected win rate and 32.1% return on investment for the over on 20.5 yards. Last season Jones ran for 423 yards on 65 attempts, averaging 35.25 yards per game, a considerable increase from his rookie season (45 attempts, 279 yards). With Chase Young expected to for Jones from the pocket, Jones will likely seek escape routes often. Taking the over is highly advised.

Antonio Gibson Over 67.5 Yards Rushing (-110, DraftKings Sportsbook)

Taylor Heinicke takes the reins on offense with Ryan Fitzpatrick injured, presumably paving the way for an increased workload for running back Antonio Gibson. The Awesemo NFL Player Props Tool projects Gibson to surpass the over, with a projected 78.56 yards on Thursday Night Football. The Props Tool also lends optimism on the over, with a 68% expected win rate and 29.2% return on investment. In his 2020 rookie season Gibson ran for 795 yards on 170 attempts, averaging 4.67 yards per carry and 56.78 yards per game. However, last week Gibson ran for 90 yards on 20 attempts and presumes to establish a similar volume with Heinicke under center.

Logan Thomas Under 48.5 Yards Receiving (-125, FanDuel Sportsbook)

Logan Thomas is coming off of his best season in 2020. However, the Awesemo NFL Player Props Tool suggests Thomas may fall short of his line of 48.5 yards receiving this week, projecting 38.75 yards, and a 70% expected win rate on the under. Last season Thomas recorded 670 yards and 72 receptions on 110 targets, averaging 41.87 yards per game. Despite scoring a touchdown last week, Thomas only managed 30 yards receiving with Heinicke at quarterback, and Washington will likely lean on the running game in Week 2. Lay the modest juice at -125 on the under.
