NFL Week 17 Best NFL Prop Bets: Mahomes and Saquon Trending in Opposite Directions
The final week in the NFL means it’s our last chance to look over a full slate of games to pick and choose our favorite props. After a 3-0 finish in week 16, we’ve got some teams in meaningful games while others are focusing more on the College Football Playoff.
It’s another fantastic time to take advantage of prime situations from quality players. My favorite player prop bets at QB, RB, and WR in Week 17.
Best Player Prop Bet of Week 17 No. 1: Quarterback: Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chief
Total Passing Yards: Mahomes OVER 278.5
It feels like Patrick Mahomes is the forgotten man with Lamar Jackson tearing up the league and running away with the MVP.
Mahomes is still the reigning MVP and played like it last week against the supposedly daunting Bears defense. They limited him in yards, but the LA Chargers are unlikely to be a tougher match.
The Chiefs also have playoff seeding to play for, which gives us the rare situation of a truly great player in a big game while the opposing defense has nothing on the line.
Patrick has Tyreek, Travis, Sammy, and a whole host of other weapons and he’s looking at a 300+ yard passing day. Mahomes treats passing like a video game and will put up video game numbers as he hits

Best Player Prop Bet of Week 17 No. 2: Running Back: Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
Total Rushing Yards: Saquon UNDER 85.5
Sorry Giants fans, but this season has been over for quite a while.
Your franchise player was the #2 pick in the draft and has taken enough hits throughout the year. You may want to beat the Eagles, but at what cost?
Barkley ran all over the Redskins last week in a surprising shootout, but the Eagles mean serious business: A win and they’re into the playoffs. They’ll be focusing on stopping the Giants ground game as he’s the only elite player they have after sending Odell Beckham. Jr to Cleveland.
We saw Saquon rush for an absurd 189 rushing yards against Washington, but week 17 is a special animal. The Eagles defense and his focus on staying healthy will do enough to keep him
The Play: Saquon UNDER 85.5
Best Player Prop Bet of Week 17 No. 3: Wide Receiver: Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Total Receiving Yards: Courtland Sutton OVER 70.5
Courtland Sutton is a star in the making that most NFL fans aren’t too familiar with yet. The 2nd year pro eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards back on December 15th.
He’s been target 10 times each in his past two games, the 2nd and 3rd times of his career so far Drew Lock has been slinging the ball to his best weapon as many times as he can.
The final week of 2019 for the Broncos will be for their young quarterback to throw more to their young receiver more than it is about beating a division rival.
The Oakland Raiders haven’t been able to scheme out No. 1 wide receivers this season anyway. Double-digit targets eventually leads to big results and Courtland Sutton’s receiving yards should go
The Play: OVER 70.5
