Coming off the bye the Eagles face the Giants in what should be a tight division battle (sadly). Here’s a few player props from the crew at Full Scale Philly.
Miles Sanders OVER 86.5 rush + receiving yards (-113)
Unlike Goedert two weeks ago, I don’t imagine Sanders will be eased back into the offense despite coming off injury. He’ll be used heavily both on the ground and in the air to relieve some pressure off Wentz, and I feel like 20 touches and 4+ yards per isn’t that high of an expectation.
Sterling Shepard OVER 4.5 receptions (-113)
He caught 6 balls in his return from injury vs Philly two weeks ago, and he’s caught 14 in the two games since. I don’t see any reason the Birds defenders can slow his presence in the middle of the field and up the seams.
Travis Fulgham UNDER 57.5 receiving yards (-110)
Recent production suggests the Over is the play here, but everyone has a quiet game eventually—pair that with a tough matchup vs James Bradberry (who shadowed Desean two weeks ago) and the return of Alshon, and there’s reason to believe a small correction in performance could come this week.
Dallas Goedert OVER 42.5 receiving yards (-110) and/or Dallas Goedert OVER 4.5 receptions (+118)
I like both of these, and I would even recommend him as an anytime TD scorer at +250. Goedert should be heavily involved in the gameplan now that he’s had ample time to heal and get synced up with Wentz. He’ll absolutely be needed to step up if this offense is ever going to find a rhythm, and I think he’ll do that this week.
Carson Wentz OVER 16.5 rush yards (-110) and/or OVER 22.5 completions (-106)
Wentz has done well to use his legs this year, and 16.5 yards isn’t a tough bar to clear (he’s done so in 4/8 games this season). Paired with that, Doug can’t help but pass the ball, and coming off a bye I expect Wentz to be somewhat more decisive and accurate with his throws, resulting in a high rate of completion.
Bonus: Boston Scott anytime TD scorer +600
He’s The Giants Killer, you really don’t think he’ll find the end zone in this one?
