The Week 3 matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers has all the energy of a playoff game. Both teams are batting in a crowded NFC field, and we could very well be taking a look at an NFC Championship preview. The Rams seem reborn after trading for QB Matt Stafford, going 2-0 and putting up 30.5 points a game. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are coasting off their big Super Bowl win, with a statement win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 followed by a blowout of the Atlanta Falcons. With both teams facing off, let’s take a look at some player props you should keep an eye on.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Los Angeles Rams Player Props Search
Matt Stafford Over 307.5 Passing Yards
Stafford seems to be enjoying life in Los Angeles. In two games, the former Lions quarterback has put up some big numbers has tossed five touchdowns with one pick while amassing 599 yards through the air. Meanwhile, he’s facing a Buccaneers defense that has disappointed in the first few weeks, allowing 342 yards through the air per game. Take Stafford to go over his total in this potential shootout.
Tom Brady Over 2.5 Passing TDs
Like Stafford, Brady is on a roll this season. He’s already passed for nine touchdowns this year, and I don’t see him slowing down anytime soon. He’s passed for four or more touchdowns in each of his last four regular-season games as well. In trying to keep up with the uptempo Rams offense, Brady’s going to find the end zone a few times.
Rob Gronkowski Anytime Touchdown
Rob Gronkowski is silencing his doubters every week. After a major performance in the Super Bowl win, the Brady-Gronowski connection is bleeding into the 2021 season. Gronk already has 12 catches for 129 yards and four touchdowns. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Expect Brady to keep relying on the star tight end in the red zone. This prop is currently +1200 on DraftKings Sportsbook.
Ronald Jones II Under 29.5 Rushing Yards
With the passing game humming through two games this season, Tampa Bay hasn’t been running the rock very much. In fact, the team is ranked 31st in the league in rushing offense right now, averaging just 67 yards per game. In particular, Ronald Jones II hasn’t been racking up yards in 2021. After putting up 978 yards and seven touchdowns last year, the running back only has 41 yards on the season and hasn’t seen the end zone once. Expect the Bucs to keep airing it out offensively while Jones II goes under his rushing total.
