Last Week: 0-5 (-5 units)
Recap: A lot of bad things occurred; nothing more, nothing less.
First Thursday Pick: Christian McCaffrey O5.5 receptions (-115)
Fact #1: CMC has logged 9 and 5 catches, respectively, over the past two games and the latter came through roughly three quarters of play before he got hurt and did not return.
Fact #2: The Texans have given up an average of 4.5 catches to RBs over the first two weeks.
Second Thursday Pick: Chuba Hubbard O2.5 rec yards (-115)
Fact #1: After playing just 11% of the snaps in Week 1 vs the Jets (a close game), CMC’s injury + the score, raised that percentage to 25% in Week 2 vs the Saints.
Logic point #1: Many pundits except this game to be a very one-sided affair and at just 2.5 rec yards, he literally needs just one catch to make this come to fruition.
Fact #2: This will somehow be a game-long sweat!
Third Thursday Pick: Anthony Miller O22.5 rec yds (-120)
Fact #1: It’s his Texans debut!
Fact #2: Both Danny Amendola and Nico Miller are out with injuries.
Fact #3: I’m skeptical on the Panthers Defense because their first test was Zach Wilson in his NFL debut and their second test was the Saints without eight coaches, most of which were on the offensive side of the ball.
