The Week 14 slate is juicy, glorious and overflowing with value. I’ve taken a look at the player prop market for Week 14 and have 3 best bets that you need to lock in now before the lines change in the oddsmakers favor. The last time I had a few player prop bets, I swept and went 2-0 without a sweat. So, here’s to hoping I can do that again in Week 14. Also, check out our NFL Week 14 predictions.

Sam LaPorta (DET) Over 45.5 Receiving Yards (-114)

We’ve entered a new era of tight ends in the NFL, and Sam LaPorta is at the forefront of it. LaPorta has slowly become one of Jared Goff’s favorite targets, and last week was a career-high game for the rookie. He recorded 140 receiving yards and caught all 9 passes thrown his way. In his last few games, LaPorta has hauled in 140, 47, 18, 40, 57 and 52 receiving yards. He will take on a Bears offense that took the Lions for a surprise a few weeks ago, and I’m expecting LaPorta to be more involved this time. With Amon-Ra St. Brown on the outside and the two-headed monster of David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs in the backfield, the Chicago defense will have their hands full, and that allows LaPorta to shine.

Nico Collins (HOU) Under 5.5 Receptions (-102)

There’s a new #1 option in Houston. Tank Dell suffered a season-ending injury in Week 13 which means it’s Nico Collins’ time to shine in the Texans offense. However, make no mistake, Collins was already having a phenomenal season before Dell went down. In just his last 2 Games, Collins has 295 receiving yards on 16 receptions and 2 touchdowns. Collins benefited from Dell getting a lot of attention on offense, but with him out, Collins will get the majority of the defense’s attention.

Unfortunately for Collins, his first game as a WR1 will come against the New York Jets, which means he will more than likely be matched up by Sauce Gardner, one of the best corners in football. Gardner is allowing just 4.4 targets per game and 2.9 receptions per game. Plus, the weather doesn’t exactly indicate a pass-friendly day. The forecast calls for heavy rain during the game with 15-20 MPH winds, so this game should primarily be played on the ground rather than through the air.

Christian McCaffrey (SF) Over 79.5 Rushing Yards (-114)

The 49ers are rolling right now, and so is Christian McCaffrey. The star running back has 93, 114, 78 and 95 rushing yards in his last 4 Games. During that 4-Game stretch, the 49ers have won by 31, 13, 18 and 23 points. San Francisco’s Game plan this season has been to score early and create a large gap by halftime so that McCaffrey can run out the clock in the second half while the defense does its job. Plus, McCaffrey just faced the Seahawks on Thanksgiving, and he rushed for 114 yards on 19 carries for 2 touchdowns.

Running wild against the Seahawks has actually been a common theme for McCaffrey in his career considering he has surpassed this line in all 4 games against Seattle. He’s rushed for 125, 87, 108 and 114 yards in 4 career games against the Seahawks. He averages 5.4 yards per carry in those 4 games, and since McCaffrey gets 17.5 carries per game this season, that comes out to 94.5 rushing yards if he has an average performance.
