New Orleans Saints vs. Washington Football Team Player Props (10/10/21)

The New Orleans Saints faced plenty of questions heading into the season, such as how they would replace QB Drew Brees and how the team would perform on offense with WR Michael Thomas out with an injury. So far, those questions haven’t exactly been answered at the Saints sit at 2-2 in a competitive NFC South division. Meanwhile, the Washington Football Team has had their share of close wins and tough losses, but still sit at 2-2 and have the opportunity to compete in the NFC East. A loss for either team would be a major step back in the division races. When the Saints come marching to Washington to take on the Football team, let’s take a look at the player props you should consider putting a sprinkle on.

Jameis Winston Over 204.5 Passing Yards

I was big on Jameis Winston coming into the season, thinking his gunslinger style could push the Saints further and lessen the blow of losing Drew Brees. But, through four weeks of the season, that simply hasn’t happened. Since that five-TD performance in the season opener, Winston has passed for three touchdowns and two picks. Worse, he’s not getting the yards we used to see in his Buccaneers days. He’s averaging just 153 yards per game, which is not sustainable in the modern NFL. However, he’s got a great opportunity to air it out this Sunday. The Washington defense is allowing 299 passing yards per game and rank towards the bottom of the league in total yardage. 204.5 is a very low prop total. Take it as Winston racks up some yardage in this game.

Terry McLaurin Over 69.5 Receiving Yards

The Washington defense has been disappointing this year, but the Saints haven’t been a brick wall by any means. Granted, they’ve been fantastic against the run, only allowing 66 yards on the ground per game. However, their pass defense has been lackluster, allowing 283.3 yards through the air every game. I’m a big fan of Terry McLaurin as a receiver, and I think many bettors are undervaluing Taylor Heinicke. McLaurin should breeze over that yardage total. Fun fact: McLaurin has gone 128 straight catches without a drop.

Taylor Heinicke Under 18.5 Rushing Yards

Heinicke’s running ability was fun to watch last week against the Atlanta Falcons. Thanks in part to a 20-yard scamper in the game, the passer put together 46 yards with an 8.6 average. However, I wonder if his running abilities are getting a little overvalued. The Giants defense held Heinicke to just six yards in Week 2, and their defense isn’t as stingy as the Saints. Like I said, the Saints are pretty strong against the run, and I think they’ll keep Heinicke from scrambling around too often.

Taylor Heinicke Over 1.5 Passing TDs

While I don’t see Heinicke scrambling for yards every single down, I think he’s going to air it out this Sunday. He’s averaging two touchdowns per game this season, despite not playing all of Week 1. He’s facing a pretty weak secondary and seems to be growing with the offense as the Washington Football Team defense continues to underperform. Don’t be surprised if Heinicke tosses three touchdowns for the second week in a row.
