    Play: 4% – Henry Ruggs III Over 3.5 receptions (-110)
    Play Rating: 4%
    Result: Loss

    (half a unit on each)
    Henry Ruggs Over 3.5 receptions -- There's a lot of talk of the CAR/LV game being a shootout and I'll take advantage of the uncertainty here with this prop. Henry Ruggs is going to start alongside rookie Bryan Edwards on Sunday. Looking at some of the numbers #1 wide receivers put up against Carolina, one would think Ruggs would be busy. Carr figures to be throwing a ton as long as this is close. I'll take a chance the Alabama rookie gets 4 catches. 
    Chris Thompson Over 24.5 receiving yards (Like over receptions more if you can find them especially if 2.5 or 3) -- The Jaguars backfield currently is starting a UDFA and also has a running back who was a Buccaneer a couple of weeks ago. The veteran of the group is Chris Thompson who comes over from Washington and is reunited with his head coach Jay Gruden who is the offensive coordinator. Thompson was busy catching passes when the team was behind in 2019. The first five weeks of the season he had 35 targets with 25 catches going over 20 yards in all but one of those games. I'm guessing that the Jags will be behind in this one and Gruden will go with the RB that he trusts. Last year the Colts allowed 96 yards receiving to Austin Ekeler, 73 yards receiving to Jaylen Samuels, 34 to Leonard Fournette and 52 to Ryquell Armstead. Those last two efforts came with the Jaguars. Give me the over here. 
    Jonathan Taylor Over 54.5 rushing yards/Marlon Mack Over 52.5 rushing yards -- Last season, the Jags’ defense allowed the fifth-most rushing yards (2,229), the second-most rushing yards per attempt (5.1) and the second-most rushing touchdowns (23) in the NFL. It's hard to project how this backfield is going to go, but these numbers are low enough that I think both can hit it. Last year Mack had 77 yards rushing on 15 carries in week 17 against Jacksonville. I'd also consider taking both to score 1 TD if they are plus prices. There's potential for all four bets to hit. 
    Jamison Crowder Over 4.5 receptions -- Crowder is the #1 receiver in this offense from the slot especially with the injuries to Denzel Mims and Breshad Perriman. One has to figure that with the disjointed offseason, quarterbacks will rely on the guys they know and that's Jamison. The Jets bookended games with the Bills in the 2019 season. Week 1 at home he got 17 targets with 14 catches for 99 yards. In week 17 on the road, Crowder got 10 targets with eight receptions for 66 yards. The weather is not supposed to be great so you probably won't see a ton of long passes. This means that Crowder could be even busier.
