NFL Wild Card Weekend Player Props

Ben Roethlisberger

There are always players that step up in the big games and with the NFL postseason here it's time for some historic performances. These memorable games will inspire audiences for generations, but it could also pad your bank account now.

Here's a complete list of props for which players will lead the NFL in passing, rushing and receiving on Wild Card weekend.

Passing Yards

Ben Roethlisberger is currently tabbed to throw for more passing yards than any other quarterback on Wild Card weekend according to Bovada. Big Ben averaged more passing yards per game then any other quarterback in the NFL through the regular season, but has struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals defense. In two games against the Bengals this season, Roethlisberger has averaged 272 passing yards while throwing four interceptions and being sacked five times.

However, the Steelers pass defense is easily the worst in the playoffs this season as they have allowed 272 passing yards per game. A.J. McCarron is going to be the starting quarterback for the Bengals, but he has only averaged 208 yards in his starts this season.

Kirk Cousins comes into the postseason as arguably the hottest home quarterback in the NFL. Cousins has averaged 271.3 passing yards on 74.7 completion percentage at FedExField this season.

Rushing Yards

It should not be much of a surprise that Adrian Peterson is the favorite to rush for more yards than anyone else on Wild Card weekend. AP led the NFL in rushing yards through the regular season and was one of only two backs to average more than 90 rushing yards per game. However, Peterson only averaged 64.2 rushing yards and less than 4.0 yards per carry in the past five games.

Marshawn Lynch offers a risky proposition for bettors as he is expected to get the start for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday—his first appearance since November 15. In seven games this season, Lynch has only gone over the century mark once, but has averaged 101 rushing yards in his past six postseason contests.

Receiving Yards

With Roethlisberger pegged as the leading passer this weekend it makes sense that his top target is expected to lead all receivers in yards. Antonio Brown, who finished second in the NFL in receiving yards, has averaged 114.6 yards per game on the year. The Bengals have held Brown in check this season as the wideout averaged just 67 yards against the Cincy secondary this season.

Though DeAndre Hopkins has had some questionable quarterbacks throwing to him this season, he has managed to put up massive numbers. Brown is the only reciver in the postseason to register more yards through the air than Hopkins during the regular season. The third-year receiver has averaged 95.1 yards per game. However, Hopkins has only topped the century mark once in the past six games.
