The Los Angeles Rams have got to be happy with that Matt Stafford trade. The quarterback has led them to a 4-1 start, including a major win over the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They’re going to be in constant competition with the Arizona Cardinals for the top spot in the NFC West. The New York Giants, on the other hand, have not been so successful. They’ve faced some serious blowouts and now look to head into Sunday with the possibility of missing their starting quarterback, top running back, and leading wide receiver. Here’s what you should expect for the player props when the New York Giants face off with the Los Angeles Rams.
Los Angeles Rams vs. New York Giants Player Prop Search Tool
Matt Stafford Over 285.5 Passing Yards
Think the Detroit Lions miss Matt Stafford yet? The QB has been on fire this year, as seen on Thursday Night Football. Stafford totaled 365 yards against the Seahawks, even while dealing with a finger injury. He’s had 278 yards or more through the air in every game so far this season and will be challenging opposing defenses all year. The New York Giants aren’t particularly skilled at pass defense, allowing 270.2 yards through the air each week. Expect Stafford to go over his passing total in this potential blowout.
Darrell Henderson Jr. Over 77.5 Rushing Yards
I remember thinking that the preseason injury to Rams RB Cam Akers would seriously hold back this offense. So far, I’ve been wrong. Darrell Henderson Jr. has done a good job in his absence, averaging 73.5 yards per game. The running back has found the end zone in three of his four games as well, and I expect he’ll continue to be a factor, even if the team remains pass-happy. The Giants are 27th in run defense right now, allowing 138.4 yards per game. Henderson Jr. has a great opportunity to torch this defense.
Tyler Higbee Under 3.5 Receptions
Because Matt Stafford has so many different options in the passing game, the tight end position can be ignored. Tyler Higbee has played decently so far, but he’s obviously not the top option in this offense. He’s had highlights, such as his five-catch performance against the Buccaneers, complete with a score. But he’s also had some performances with only a few looks, recording only two catches last week. I expect Stafford to continue focusing on his wideouts while only giving Higbee one or two catches.
Van Jefferson Over 37.5 Receiving Yards
And who’s going to take those targets away from Higbee? WR Van Jefferson of course. As the third receiver in this talented group, he’s putting up some great numbers, averaging 17.3 receiving yards per game. He had a big performance in Week 4 against the Cardinals, with six catches for 90 yards and a score. While opposing defenses are focusing on Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, Jefferson will have numerous opportunities to rack up yards. I think he’ll get some looks as the Rams tear up the lowly Giants defense.
