The Opening Slate: NFL Week 7 on Monkey Knife Fight
Derek Tate breaks down some of his favorite prop games for Week 7 action on Monkey Knife Fight.
Ohhhh, thank heaven we made it to Week 7. Now normally I like to take a look at the Thursday night matchup on these Monkey Knife Fight opening prop lines, but with half of the Cleveland Browns offensive unit in shambles, I figured I'd pivot to another matchup with a couple of lines I think you can use to your advantage. Without further adieu, let's take a closer look at the Washington vs. Green Bay matchup.

Week 7 Player Props on Monkey Knife Fight
MORE OR LESS
Aaron Rodgers - 270.5 Passing Yards
Taylor Heinicke - 245.5 Passing Yards
To quote Stephen A. Smith, Aaron Rodgers is a bad man.
To summarize my analysis of the Washington Football Team secondary... They are badddddd. Like close your eyes, look away from your television screen, worst secondary in the league type bad. They are currently allowing 309.5 passing yards per game and have absolutely no one who is capable of checking Davante Adams. Give me the More for Rodgers.
As for Heinicke, he has the advantages of potentially playing from behind and a Packers secondary that is without Jaire Alexander. Even though the Packers' defense has been stout through the air so far this season, give me the More for Heinicke.
Rodgers - MORE
Passing Yards - Rodgers vs. Heinicke (+24.5)
Receiving Yards - Davante Adams vs. Terry McLaurin (+23.5)
Both teams should find plenty of success through the air in this contest. However, I expect the Packers to have the lead pretty early in this one, given that Washington has trailed in every single game so far this season. Heinicke will have to attack the Packers defense through the air for the majority of the second half to stay competitive, which should play nicely into him winning his heads-up matchup with a 24-yard bonus.
Also, remember when I mentioned that Jaire Alexander isn't available? That plays nicely into the hands of Terry McLaurin, who is coming off of two subpar performances. Undoubtedly, Adams will feast on the Washington secondary, but I expect McLaurin to register a 100+ yard performance on Sunday.
