Austin Ekeler OVER 41.5 receiving yards (-115)

Austin Ekeler is one of the best dual threat backs in the league. He’s posted at least 42 receiving yards in six out of eight games this season, and the Eagles have had trouble stopping receiving threats out of the backfield. Their linebacking corps of T.J. Edwards, Davion Taylor, and Alex Singleton are coming of a strong performance against Detroit, but Jonathan Gannon won’t have the luxury of focusing in on just 1-2 offensive weapons in this matchup. The Chargers present a lot of offensive fire power, Philly will have their hands full. I imagine Gannon will put most of his attention on the receiving threats on the outside, allowing Ekeler to do his thing on screens and underneath routes.

Jared Cook UNDER 29.5 receiving yards (-110)

Tight ends haven’t dominated the Eagles this year like they have in years past, and with Anthony Harris back in the lineup this week, I’d expect Gannon’s defense to be able to slow down Chargers tight end Jared Cook. Cook has only posted two games this season in which he’s gone over 30 receiving yards. The Eagles haven’t allowed a 100-yard game to a tight end this season. Justin Herbert may try to target Cook early, but he shouldn’t expect much success.

Jalen Hurts OVER 50.5 rushing yards (-115)

LA has the worst run defense in all of football this season. They’re 31st in total rushing yards allowed, 29th in rushing touchdowns allowed, 32nd in yards per carry allowed, and 31st in rushing first downs allowed. Nick Sirianni and his Eagles offense should look to run the ball early and often in this contest. Jalen Hurts has been a big factor in the Eagles rushing attack this season, leading the team in rushing with 432 yards and five touchdowns. The past two weeks, he’s eclipsed the 50-yard mark for rushing. LA will have trouble stopping Philly’s rushing attack all day, and Hurts will be a big reason why.

Jalen Reagor OVER 23.5 receiving yards (-115)

Jalen Reagor has had his issues this season. He’s had trouble getting involved in the offense, but it finally looked like he was a focal point in the offense before getting injured last week in Detroit. Despite being limited in practice this week with the ankle injury, expect Sirianni to continue getting Reagor more involved in his offensive game plan. Whether it’s on quick screens or sweeps, Reagor’s explosive traits should be utilized more than they have been. LA will be down both of their starting corners in this contest as well, opening the door to a big game from Reagor.
