Top Player Props For MNF
MORE or LESS (Patrick Mahomes and Daniel Jones)
Patrick Mahomes has only had three games this season where he passed for more than 300 yards and only 1 of those 300-yard performances came in his last five outings. The Giants defense allows an average of 256.9 passing yards per game and only two quarterbacks this season have passed for more than 300 yards on the Giants defense. Seeing Patrick Mahomes 300.5 passing yards on Monkey Knife Fight and knowing the following stats makes it hard to take the more on Mahomes in this contest. Research tells us to smash the less. The Daniel Jones side of the prop has him at 245.5 passing yards and while he's only eclipsed that mark twice this season, he's playing against a Chiefs defense allowing an average of 275.5 through the air to opposing Quarterbacks. I feel I can smash more with confidence here.
Patrick Mahomes LESS 300.5 passing yards.
Daniel Jones MORE 245.5 passing yards.
Getting into Rapidfire I'm going to apply some of the same logic I used in more or less. While I believe in the Kansas City Chiefs to win and be ahead comfortably, Patrick Mahomes doesn't need to pass for 300 yards to lead his team to a win. Seeing Daniel Jones with a +55.5 bonus and predicting he'll end the night close to 270 passing yards trying to constantly play to keep up with the scoreboard, let's take the Daniel Jones side of the prop. With the idea of the Chiefs playing ahead, I expect Darrel Williams to get tons of work out of the backfield. Despite the bonus being set at +6.5 in favor of Devontae Booker, I feel like the Giants will have to abandon the run at some point in order to hang in this game therefore let's take Williams' side.
Darrel Williams over Devontae and +6.5
Setting up for this touchdown dance, we're going to build heavily on the Kansas City Chiefs, being that's where we believe more opportunities will be. With the belief in the Chiefs playing from ahead and heavy usage from the running game let's start this build with Darrel Williams to find the end zone. Sticking with the Chiefs, our second option will be Tyreek Hill. There's always an opportunity for a big splash play with Hill on the field. Finally, to break the monotony, let's go Devontae Booker should Kadarius Toney not suit up. Let's set the goal at 2.5 touchdowns scored, at least one of these guys should find the end zone twice.
