Bryce Young Player Prop Picks
It was a tough first task for Bryce Young in his debut as he had to take on an improved Falcons defense in the season opener. Not only did he have to figure out how to crack the defense, but with minimal production at wideout as his receiving group is abysmal. He still managed to secure a touchdown but also clocked in two interceptions as well. With the Saints on deck, expect a heavier dose of the run in an attempt to free up the coverage.
Bryce Young Under 0.5 Interceptions
Coming into the draft, Bryce Young was heralded for his efficiency and ability to pick apart opposing defenses with his pinpoint accuracy. While it’s no surprise to see a rookie struggle in week one, especially against a good defense, Young is more than capable of putting the ball on a rope and limiting his mistakes.

His group of pass catchers is not ideal, but the Panthers may opt into the idea of a heavier dose of the run. Not only does this take away passing attempts, but also limits the chances of an interception. Especially if Miles Sanders gets it going in the open field, forcing the Saints to stack the box and open up passing lanes on the outside.
Bryce Young Under 196.5 Passing Yards
This isn’t so much a fade on his passing ability as it is backing the potential game script. With limited opportunities comes a higher chance of the under hitting. The lack of production on the outside can’t be overstated as the Panthers fail to field one receiver who is capable of creating separation at an elite level.
The Saints also excel at controlling the pace, using quick throws and a heavy dose of the run to dominate the time of possession. The longer the ball is out of Young’s hands the higher chance this under has to succeed. Especially if both teams keep this tight as the number implies, allowing for a normal run usage instead of a heavier pass attack when playing from behind.
His passing yards prop is also vastly different pending which book you look at. There are still some 196.5’s out there while also going to as low as 189.5. Reminder, it’s also best to shop around and grab the best available number.
