If you've never played on ThriveFantasy before, or you've never played prop bets, it's a pretty straightforward practice. Users choose to take either the over or under on a particular line (for example, Christian McCaffrey over/under 0.5 touchdowns). Taking the over means you think McCaffrey scores; inversely, taking the under means you believe he will not. Simple as that!
Let's talk about some exciting bets to get this parlay started.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys - 70.5 Total Yards
To date, Elliott has barely cleared this yardage total only once. This is largely because he hasn't been involved and is outrageously ineffective in the receiving game for Dallas, per FantasyData. While the Cowboys running back has been frustrating thus far in 2022, going up against a Washington Commanders defense that ranks seventh-worst against opposing rushing offenses per PFF, I'm willing to take the gamble on Elliott here. That one instance of him clearing this yardage total was last week against the New York Giants, a team that ranks eighth-worst in PFF's run defense grading. So it stands to reason that he should do fine against a defense that is essentially as bad as the one he faced last week.
The Pick: Over 70.5 total yards
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers - 56.5 Rushing Yards
While Ekeler's rushing inefficiency has been frustrating so far this season, it may be mainly due to the Chargers opening the season against two of the most challenging run defenses per Football Outsiders' DVOA metric. Fortunately, the Houston Texans rank third-worst in the NFL in a rush DVOA and last in PFF's rushing defense and have allowed at least 75 rushing yards to their opponent's lead running back in every game so far this season. So this is a massive opportunity for Ekeler to right the ship, and I feel good about his ability.
The Pick: Over 56.5 receiving yards
Jamaal Williams, RB, Detroit Lions - 63,5 Rushing Yards
Williams has already cleared this total once this year and has nearly done so twice. With D'Andre Swift already ruled out for Sunday's game, Williams should shoulder the rushing workload against a Seattle Seahawks defense that ranks fourth-worst in PFF's rushing defense and twelfth-worst in run defense DVOA. On top of also missing wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, it is well within the realm of possibility that Detroit leans even harder on the run, thus making Williams an ideal candidate to hit the over on this prop.
The Pick: Over 63.5 rushing yards
