Gridiron Tales Week 15 Continued: Late Slate WR Edition

Saturday: 1-2

Season: 21-13

Recap: Missing the Lock prop by 2 completions is infuriating when you realize that they ran the clock out with 3 straight runs to end the game. Tonyan had 2 catches in the first quarter and just one over the final three, but the TD prop did cash.

Today’s Pick: DeAndre Hopkins O87.5 receiving yards (-112) and O7.5 catches (+106) vs PHI

Fact #1: Eagles top corner Darius Slay is out today… not like that has appeared to matter the past couple of weeks

2nd Pick: Rashard Higgins O51.5 receiving yards (+100) vs NYG

Fact #1: I hate picking props against my team

Fact #2: Higgins has 95 and 68 yards, respectively over his last two games while also seeing his snap % increase over each of the past five games

Fact #3: The Giants will be without top cornerback James Bradberry, who is on the Covid list
