Monday Night Football is taking place tonight between the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Commanders! It might still be preseason, but we’ll certainly take what we can get. The regular season kicks off in just 17 days, not that we’re counting or anything.
Tonight’s contest will once again feature some players that are desperately seeking a roster spot, hoping to make a name for themselves in the NFL. Who will stand out? Who will fall flat on their face?
We don’t have to wait long to find out. With that in mind, let’s review our favorite player props from tonight.
Chris Rodriguez turned a lot of heads during the Commanders’ first preseason game. The sixth-round rookie totaled 39 yards on five attempts, averaging 7.8 yards per carry. His efficiency was noted by several pundits across the league, and he will look to put up similar numbers tonight.
The Commanders are in seek of a third back behind Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson. Right now, it looks like the job will either go to Rodriguez or Jarret Patterson.
With both players slated to get significant on-field time tonight, we believe that Rodriguez’s talent will shine through. With that being said, we’re confident in his ability to go well over his 24.5-yard line tonight.
During the Commanders’ first preseason game, 12 different players caught passes. They are looking to spread the ball around, giving opportunities to many players.
This will lead to short yardages for many of their players, including Tinsley, who was undrafted. Tinsley did have 26 yards in the opener, which came on the heels of one long reception.
We’re not anticipating Tinlsey to be targeted more than three times during this game, and it’s difficult to predict another long, 20+ yard reception. With that in mind, we’re taking the under in 20.5 receiving yards tonight.
In the Ravens’ first preseason game, Anthony Brown only attempted eight passes. He completed just three of those passes for seven yards, adding an interception to his game total.
We’re not expecting him to get much playing time tonight, especially with Josh Johnson and Tyler Huntley in line to receive the bulk of the offensive work.
Plus, Brown tends to take off on the run, capping his passing yard ceiling. We expected this line to be closer to 50 yards, which is why we’re recommending the under in tonight’s contest.
