The Seattle Seahawks are welcoming Russell Wilson back with open arms after going 1-3 without the talented passer. At 3-5, the Hawks need a win now more than ever if they even want a chance of reaching the postseason. Despite a rough performance last week, the Green Bay Packers are still one of the most talented teams in the NFL. They’re sitting at 7-2 right now and want to put last week’s 13-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs behind them. So much of this game hinges on whether or not QB Aaron ends up starting, and Packers fans have to be hopeful the franchise QB will make an appearance. With the Seahawks squaring off against the Packers in Lambeau this Sunday, here are some player props I’m liking.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers Player Prop Search Tool
Russell Wilson Under 247.5 Passing Yards
Remember how well Dak Prescott played last week coming back from injury? Yeah, I’m expecting something similar in this game. Russell Wilson is one of the best QBs in the league, but he’s going to struggle in his first game back. The Packers have one of the most underrated defenses in the league, as they’re allowing just 321.2 total yards per game. It’s an overlooked unit, and I believe Wilson’s going to have a tougher time than expected this week.
A.J. Dillon Over 41.5 Rushing Yards
I stand by the fact that if the Green Bay Packers had simply committed to the run last week, they would have won the game. The Pack has a talented pair of running backs, and they’re going to get plenty of work if Aaron Rodgers ends up missing this game. Dillon had a breakout game against the Arizona Cardinals a few weeks back, picking up 78 yards on the ground. Plus, the Seattle Seahawks have one of the worst run defenses in the league, allowing 127.6 yards o the ground per game. Consider grabbing Dillon’s fellow running back Aaron Jones to go over as well.
Russell Wilson Over 0.5 Interceptions
As I said, I’m expecting a rough outing from Russell Wilson this week. And my confidence in the Green Bay Packers defense will be rewarded. The Packers have nine interceptions this season, and they’ll have an opportunity to ht double digits this Sunday. Wilson tossed a rough interception in the Thursday night Football matchup before being knocked out with an injury, and I think he’ll log one here for the second game in a row.
Tyler Lockett Under 68.5 Receiving Yards
As long as I’m fading Russell Wilson, I’m going to do the same with one of his top receivers. Tyler Lockett is far too inconsistent to believe in whether Wilson is under center or not. Outside of a massive 142-yard performance against the lowly Jaguars, Lockett’s had games with 31, 24, and even 12 yards. Combine that with the above average Green Bay defense and it’s a recipe for a low receiving total. I’d stay away from D.K. Metcalf’s total, but I’d definitely hit the under for Lockett in Lambeau.
