Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Philadelphia Eagles Player Prop Picks

The Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1) take on the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, October 2 at 1 p.m. In a matchup with two up and coming young QBs in Jalen Hurts and Trevor Lawrence, there are plenty of interesting player prop options to choose from in this game. Let’s take a look at the player prop bets I like best in this matchup.

Jalen Hurts over 249.5 passing yards (-115 on DraftKings)

Vegas lines haven’t quite caught up yet to the way Hurts has started this season. He has at least 333 passing yards in the last two weeks, and in each of those contests he did most of his damage in the first half and had a quiet second half. If he is forced to keep being aggressive in the second half in this game, he stands an even greater chance to eclipse 300 passing yards for the third straight game, let alone covering this over prop. The Jaguars rushing defense is first in the league (55 yards per game allowed), but just 21st against the pass (251.7 yards per game allowed). Some of that can be attributed to game script, as the Jaguars have jumped out to an early lead over the last two weeks en route to blowout victories. No matter the game script this week, Hurts should be doing plenty of passing again in this game, and seems like a lock to go over 249.5 passing yards.

A.J Brown over 73.5 receiving yards (-115 on DraftKings)

A.J. Brown is really, really good. The Jaguars secondary is young and as mentioned above, their pass defense is middle of the pack in the NFL so far this season. In addition to those two facts working in his favor, Brown has a little something extra to play for this week.

Brown is fifth in the NFL in target share at 31.6% and has gone over 73.5 receiving yards in two of his three games this season. He also averages 72.3 receiving yards per game against the Jaguars in four career games when he was with the Titans. Plenty of good reasons to take Brown’s over this week.

Christian Kirk over 63.5 receiving yards (-115 on DraftKings)

The Jaguars have been scheming up all sorts of creative ways to get the ball in Kirk’s hands, and he has gone over 63.5 receiving yards in all three games so far this season (89 yards per game). While he lines up all over the field, Kirk is at his best operating out of the slot, and the Eagles slot cornerback Avonte Maddox is out for this game with an ankle injury.

C.J. Gardner-Johnson was primarily a nickel corner with the Saints before becoming a full-time safety with the Eagles, so he could be the one to draw primary coverage duties on Kirk. Still, with the Eagles down a man at the position most important to locking down the slot, I like Kirk’s chances to go over 63.5 receiving yards once again.

Travis Etienne over 17.5 receiving yards (-120 on DraftKings)

Etienne may not be the number one back that people expected him to be thanks to a strong start to the season by James Robinson, but the Jaguars are still looking for ways to get Etienne involved in the offense. He has at least three targets and 18 receiving yards in all three games so far this season, and 30 or more receiving yards in the last two games. Despite an improved linebacking corps this season, the Eagles defense has been somewhat vulnerable to running backs in the passing game, having allowed 31 yards to D’Andre Swift, 19 to Dalvin Cook and 32 to J.D. McKissic. In a game where the Jaguars are expected to be down and need to throw to keep up, there should be enough designed plays and check-down opportunities for Etienne in the passing game to help him hit this over.
