Week 5 Player Props on Monkey Knife Fight
MORE OR LESS
A divisional showdown between two excellent quarterbacks in this week’s feature, and there’s potential for some high points to be put up. The Seahawks currently are allowing the most yards per game in the NFL through the first four games, while the Rams aren't far behind (allowing the 5th most YPG to opposing offenses). Now, there is always the possibility that both divisional teams know each other quite well and can make things difficult on one another. However, I don't think the Seahawks will have many answers for the Rams offense, and while D.K. Metcalf is dealing with a foot injury heading into his matchup against Jalen Ramsey, I still think Wilson finds a way to sustain drives against the Rams to keep this game close. Give me the More for both signal-callers.
Stafford - MORE
Wilson - MORE
The Rams offense has been money through the first four games of the Matthew Stafford. They have found a groove and I expect them to continue to get whatever they want against a struggling Seahawks defensive unit. So I'll take Stafford in their heads-up matchup.
Now on to the running back matchup, where the health of Chris Carson is a major concern. While the 13.5-yard bonus for Carson makes this an enticing line, I'm not confident he is going to be close to 100% for Thursday night. Combine that with Henderson's efficiency (6.36 YPC vs. Cardinals) and dominating snap count share (90% vs. Cardinals) in his first week back from injury, I'll comfortably roll with Henderson for this showdown.
Give me the Rams duo of Stafford and Henderson in this Rapid Fire contest.
