An Update to this Article
We are actively working on a new tool which will compare Footballguys projections to several key prop areas. Thank you for bearing with us as we try to revamp this content.
Update to Prop Selection Methodology:
This season, we’ve tried to identify numbers that don’t make any level of sense, and then assume that they are a trap line. We are no longer going to be doing this.

Last week, Matt Ryan only got to 222 yards against this Raiders defense as the rushing attack of Jonathan Taylor dominated that game. Even still, this is a defense that allowed Russell Wilson to throw for 237 yards earlier this season, and while the Broncos are banged up with Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler going to miss this week, the matchup is simply too good for how low this number is this week.
