D’Onta Foreman Under 56.5 Rushing Yards
D’Onta Foreman has been extremely inconsistent all year long with his yardage. He has a few 100-yard plus games against subpar defenses, but when going against a formidable defense his yardage has been very low. Last week against a solid Baltimore Ravens defense, he was only able to muster 24 rushing yards, and two weeks ago against the Cincinnati Bengals it was only 23 rushing yards. The Denver Broncos defense is one the best in the league and keeps them in just about every game. This number is way too high for a very inconsistent back against a great defense.
Rachaad White Over 66.5 Rushing Yards
This one is simple, find the running back or running backs on the team facing the Cleveland Browns and take their over yardage total. The Browns built their defense for speed and not size, and this has backfired horribly. They are in the bottom 5 in the league in yards per carry against at 4.8. With the weather looking to be cold and rainy in Cleveland on Sunday, I would expect Rachaad White to get plenty of opportunities running the ball with Leonard Fournette injured.
Miles Sanders Over 66.5 Rushing Yards
Miles Sanders should be able to find at least 66.5 rushing yards against a Green Bay Packers defense that has struggled to stop the run all season. Green Bay is in the bottom 5 in the league in total rush yards given up with just under 1,500 this season. Sanders, on the other hand, will continue to get usage in an Eagles offense that loves to run the ball. He’s ninth in the league in rushing attempts and 10th in yardage. With the Eagles taking an early lead in this game at home, I would anticipate Sanders getting a good amount of rushing attempts which should allow him to crush this yardage prop.

When do player props come out on DraftKings?
The player props come out on DraftKings sometime around noon on Thursday for the Sunday slate of NFL games. Week 1 is a different beast as many of the player props came out well before that, but from week 2 on, you should not expect to see them released until at least Thursday. Some games may not even be released until Friday or Saturday if a major offensive piece is questionable during the week. DraftKings will hold those props until more news is released when a major player’s status is unknown.
