We’re into the second week of football, and already we’ve learned so much about every team. From emerging rookies to returning veterans, there are players up and down this slate of games who I see having big games, and one team. I’ve picked out my five favorite prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Quintez Cephus over 41.5 yards (-112)

The total in this game is set at 50 points, the second-highest number on Sunday’s slate, so lots of passing is to be expected. Without Kenny Golladay last week, Cephus was targeted a team-high 10 times but caught just three of the passes thrown his way. Golladay will miss this week’s game once again and Cephus is reportedly expected to receive a ton of playing time once again. The rookie managed to rack up 43 yards in Week 1 despite having just three receptions, which encourages me to take this over because he should have a chance to hit the over even if he has three or four grabs. I’m not sure I expect 10 targets again but if he gets even half of that number 41.5 is great value.

Eric Ebron over 2.5 receptions (-112)

Ben Roethlisberger looked pretty great in Week 1, quieting a ton of doubts about his throwing ability after elbow surgery. One guy he only targeted twice was Ebron, who was among Pittsburgh’s big additions on offense. Ebron and Roethlisberger were so obsessed with building chemistry over the offseason that they actually lived together, so I expect him to continue working on things with his new tight end. He should see a slight uptick in targets here and I like his chances of making three grabs. This number’s simply too low.

San Francisco to score first and win (-104)

As someone who has watched a sad amount of Jets football over the course of my entire life, I can tell you with full confidence that New York will not win on Sunday. Something else that I can relay to you is that the Jets have been historically bad on opening drives and began their loss to the Bills with four straight punts and an interception. Over the past two years, they’ve been toward the bottom of the league in points per game in the first quarter, and the Niners are coming off a season where they scored almost a touchdown per game in the first. The Niners should win and with New York’s offensive struggles early in games, I expect the Niners to be in position to strike first.

Miles Sanders over 55.5 yards (-112)

The Eagles welcome back Sanders this week and should be leaning on him heavily to gash a Rams run defense that allowed 136 yards last week and was middling in 2019. When he reclaimed the starting role last year in Week 10, Sanders went on to average 68.9 yards per game and played over 80% of snaps in most of them. I expect the Eagles to trot Sanders out for a healthy chunk of snaps with no true bellcow running back to speak of (Boston Scott had issues handling the load last week) and against an incredibly average run defense he should push up toward 100 yards.

Dwayne Haskins over 13.5 rushing yards (-112)

The Washington Football Team was one of the biggest stories of Week 1, looking spectacular in a comeback win over the Eagles. Their leader under center, Dwayne Haskins, looked like he had a lot to prove, playing inspired football throughout and rushing for 17 yards in the process. Haskins went over this total in four of his nine games last season and I think Washington’s gameplan against last season’s worst rushing defense will include lots of runs. Haskins should definitely be a contributor to the ground game on Sunday and I think his total will rise by four or five yards a few weeks from now.
