Washington Football Team vs. Denver Broncos Player Props (10/31/21)

The Washington Football Team was a popular pick to take control of the NFC East before the season kicked off. Seven weeks in, that hasn’t exactly happened. The team sits at 2-5, well behind the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys, and neither the offense nor defense has been setting the world on fire. The Denver Broncos are in freefall after their 3-0 start, going 0-4 since and facing a humiliating loss against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. The team’s unimpressive defense, combined with uninspired quarterback play, has soured the Broncos in the eyes of many bettors. With the Washington Football Team heading to Denver this Halloween to take on the Broncos, here are a few player props I’m liking.

Taylor Heinicke Over 233.5 Passing Yards

Is HeinickeMania over already? The Washington QB has had an up-and-down season so far, with 10 TDs to seven picks on the year. He’s getting another start amidst Ryan Fitzpatrick’s injury woes, and I think he’s in a great spot here. I’m tired of people overvaluing this Denver Broncos defense, and I believe Heinicke could very well hit 300 yards in this matchup. Additionally, because Washington’s defense has been so leaky this year, Heinicke will likely be throwing it early and often to keep up.

Taylor Heinicke Over 24.5 Rushing Yards

Heinicke uses his legs when he needs to, and he’s been very successful running the ball so far. He’s averaging 31.7 yards per game and is coming off a 95-yard performance against the Green Bay Packers in which he ripped off a 38-yard run. As I said, I’m over this Denver defense as they padded their stats in an early three-game window against weaker teams. Take Heinicke to run all over a Denver team that’s missing strength in the linebacking crew due to injuries.

Javonte Williams First TD Scorer

I sincerely believe if the Broncos started consistently running the ball, they’d have a much better record. However, even with a pair of talented backs, the Broncos refuse to feed their backs the ball, totaling a little over 100 rushing yards per game. However, against a weak Washington defense, I believe rookie running back Javonte Williams could see some success. Williams has only found the end zone once this season, but I see that changing once Denver realizes how talented their running backs are. (They’d better do it soon for the sake of the coaching staff.) There’s some value here with Williams to score the first TD of the game at +1300 on DraftKings.

Terry McLaurin Longest Reception Over 23.5

Even though the quarterbacking has been a bit inconsistent, Terry McLaurin is still getting some big catches. He’s got 550 yards and four scores this season, and Heinicke will continue to lean on his best receiver on Sunday. McLaurin is also hauling in big catches, as he’s had four games with a catch of at least 33 yards. Take McLaurin’s biggest catch to go over 23.5 yards for this Sunday matchup.
