New York Giants vs. Miami Dolphins Player Props (12/5/21)

The Giants will be starting Mike Glennon at quarterback this week with Daniel Jones out with a neck injury, and it’s crucial to analyze the impact of that quarterback change when assessing player props for this matchup. On the Miami side, Tua Tagovailoa has their offense playing much better as of late, and this is a favorable matchup for that to continue.

Tua Tagovailoa Over 22.5 Passing Completions

After a difficult rookie season, many gave up on Tagovailoa, but he’s quietly playing excellent football lately. He is only behind Kyler Murray in completion percentage at 70.5% this year, and he has completed over 80% of his passes in three of his last four starts. Aside from the game against the ferocious Buffalo defense, Tagovailoa has completed 27+ passes in four straight starts. The New York pass defense started the year solidly, but recent injuries to Jabrill Peppers, Darnay Holmes, and Adoree’ Jackson have left the secondary reeling. Tagovailoa could be getting back DeVante Parker for this matchup, but even if he doesn’t, I have a ton of faith in him continuing his strong play against this defense.

Saquon Barkley Over 3.5 Receptions

The Giants have an excellent set of skill position players, but the lack of health on offense has made it, so they have hardly been on the field at the same time all season. This week, it looks like Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney will miss the game again, leaving Saquon Barkley to take on a more significant role in the passing game. Mike Glennon doesn’t have nearly the same rushing ability as Daniel Jones, so there’s a good chance he uses Barkley as a check-down option more frequently, and Barkley has had 4+ receptions in each of his last four complete games. In recent weeks, Leonard Fournette (6), Kenyan Drake (6), Chuba Hubbard (4), and Mike Davis (4) have all surpassed this line against Miami.

Myles Gaskin Over 12.5 Rushing Attempts

It’s been an up-and-down season for Myles Gaskin and Miami as a whole, but as the team has turned around lately, he has seen his production increase significantly. Gaskin has 13+ carries in four straight games, and he has averaged 17 rushing attempts per game over his last five games. The Giants are allowing the seventh-most rushing yards per game this season, so Miami should look to emphasize the ground game this week. The projected game script should also lend itself to a heavy workload for Gaskin. With Gaskin playing on a hefty snap share, you can expect him to get a solid carry total this week.

Evan Engram Under 3.5 Receptions

The fact that Engram has been unable to produce regardless of which Giants’ pass-catchers have been missing due to injuries has been eye-opening, and frankly, quite depressing. Engram hasn’t had four receptions in a game since October, despite starting every game. He played on 90% of snaps over the past two weeks against two defenses who have been beaten by tight ends all year in the Buccaneers and Eagles, and he had a combined five receptions over those two games. I wouldn’t trust Engram with Daniel Jones at quarterback, and I certainly don’t trust him with Mike Glennon under center.
