Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 3 Monday Night Football Prop Bets!

Week 2 recap:

Player Props – 5-2 (+3.73 units)

Longshots/SGP – 0-4 (-1.26 units)

Overall – 5-6 (+2.47 units)

2021 Season recap:

Player Props – 10-5 (+5.63 units)

Longshots/SGP – 1-7 (+0.59 units)

Overall – 11-12 (+6.22 units)

Once again, the record is ugly, but we come out profitable after another Monday Night Game. As you can see, most of the losses have come on the 1st TD scores and Same Game Parlays, so I will probably be more selective with them moving forward.

However, that complicated fella kept us from what would’ve been a massive night. He missed MVS on not one, not two, but three would be touchdowns which would’ve cashed the SGP. It hurts, but we’ll hit one sooner or later.

Game Outlook

We get ourselves another NFC divisional matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys. Philadelphia will travel down to Jerry World for their first bout of the season. The Cowboys are currently 3.5 point favorites, with the total sitting at 52 points.

The Cowboys have been impressive so far through two weeks of play. I’ve liked what I’ve seen from the play-calling on the offensive side. They went pass-heavy in Week 1 against the Bucs and came up just short in a game I expected them to get blown out in. Then last week, they went with a run-heavy approach against the Chargers. Zeke carried the ball 16 times for 71 yards and a TD, while Tony Pollard managed 109 rushing yards and a TD on 13 carries. It will be interesting to see how the carries are split this week.

Amari Cooper is banged up with a rib injury, and Michael Gallup will be out again. However, CeeDee Lamb should be poised for another big night.

Philadelphia comes into Monday Night off of a 17-11 loss to the 49ers. The offense couldn’t finish off their drives along with a failed Philly Special call from the three-yard line on 4th and goal. They’ll look to get back on track against a suspect Dallas defense.

Jalen Hurts once again got it done with his legs last week, totaling 82 yards on the ground. He ran for 69 yards against the Cowboys last year and has rushed for at least 60 yards in each one of the five full games he has played in.

DeVonta Smith disappointed with just two receptions for 19 yards on seven targets in his second NFL game. However, I don’t expect things to get any easier for him in his first primetime game as I think we see Trevon Diggs shadow the rookie receiver. 

If Diggs travels with Smith, that should open things up for the 2nd-year wideout, Jalen Reagor. He also had a forgettable game against the 49ers last week with just 2/5. He did, however, see the second-most targets with five.

The Eagles’ offense will have to show up on Monday night if they want to keep pace with the high-powered Cowboys’ offense. If they can manage to do that, we should be in for an exciting shootout.

2021 NFL WEEK 1 MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL PROP BETS

All of my bets will be to win 1 unit unless noted otherwise. 

Jalen Hurts – OVER 52.5 rushing yards (-115 on DK)

As mentioned above, Hurts ran for 69 yards in last year’s matchup and has rushed for at least 60 yards in each of the five full games he has played in. This number has been slowly creeping up since Hurts’ debut, but I will bet it until it’s in the ’60s and/or until he fails to top that mark.

CeeDee Lamb – OVER 77.5 receiving yards (-114 on FD)

CeeDee Lamb has been a beast to start his 2nd season. He leads all WRs with 24 targets and is only behind Darren Waller’s 26, who had a whopping 19 in Week 1. 

Through two games, Lamb is averaging 92.5 receiving yards and has topped this number in both. 

This game has the makings of a shootout, so points and yards should be plentiful on Monday Night. It will be surprising if CeeDee doesn’t take part in the action. And it doesn’t hurt that Cooper is banged up coming into the game.

Plays Added 9/27

CeeDee Lamb anytime TD (+115 on DK)

Longshots/Same Game Parlay

SGP – DAL ML + Hurts 50+ rush yds + Prescott 275+ pass yds + Lamb 70+ rec yds  (+621 on FD) .5u to win 3.1

SGP – DAL ML + Under 65.5 + Hurts 50+ rush yds + Prescott 275+ pass yds + Lamb 70+ rec yds + Lamb TD (+1338 on FD) .5u to win 7.2

Final Thoughts

I felt like a lot of these player props were just too close to call. Most were within a few yards of what I had them projected for so I’m not going to force anything .

It’s also a NFC East battle and you just never quite know what will happen in these games. One way or another, I think we should be in for a tight one.

Best of luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me on Twitter @KSalamido
