Tight ends are the forgotten skill position players in the NFL these days. Everyone’s talking about the receivers, the running backs and, of course, the QBs. But for us football bettors, tight ends present some of the best value for our season-long player props. Below, we break down our best 2022 NFL season player props for tight ends, and the reasons to tail our picks.
You can find these NFL season player props for tight ends over at our best NFL betting sites, including Bovada. If you’re new to betting on football, check out our How To Bet NFL page to get up to speed or keep track of the latest Super Bowl odds.
Our Top NFL Season Player Props: Tight Ends
NFL Season TE Player Props 2022
Below find a complete selection of NFL tight end prop bets from Bovada, including some of our featured picks and breakdowns:
Dalton Schultz OVER 5.5 TD (-115)
Dalton Schultz broke out in a big way last year, racking up 808 yards and eight touchdowns for the Cowboys. He became a red-zone beast in 2021, when six of his 14 targets inside the 20-yard line became touchdowns.
Take Amari Cooper out of the equation, with the veteran WR now in Cleveland, and there are even more targets to go around. CeeDee Lamb will demand attention and targets, but Schultz should easily get enough to snag this OVER.
Darren Waller UNDER 875.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
For the same reason we’re on the Schultz OVER, we like Darren Waller’s UNDER in 2022. The Raiders just brought in a dominant WR1 who will demand targets this season. With Davante Adams in the mix, Waller should see fewer double teams but fewer targets too. Add in the injury risk Waller showed last season and this is an easy UNDER bet.
You can lock in a Darren Waller bet, or any of these TE prop bets, over at Bovada:
Zach Ertz OVER 64.5 Receptions (-115)
Zach Ertz’s 2022 season started out pretty rough. He had just 18 receptions in the first six games, lost his starting TE job in Philly, and was traded to Arizona. After joining the Cardinals, though, his year turned around. Ertz averaged over seven targets a game for the rest of the year, improving his catch rate and yardage per contest, too.
Extrapolating his 5.1 receptions per game with Arizona, that would equate to 87 over an entire season, far above this total line. Take DeAndre Hopkins out of the passing equation for the Cards for the first chunk of the season, too, and there will be plenty of opportunity for Ertz to hit this OVER.
Mike Gesicki UNDER 4.5 Receiving TD (-135)
Mike Gesicki had a strong season in 2021, seeing 112 targets and grabbing 780 yards in the air. Even still, he only had two touchdowns.
Though some might expect those TDs to tick up this year, Gesicki’s role will change significantly in 2022 under new coach Mike McDaniel. After lining up as a WR for much of 2021 under Brian Flores, Gesicki will now play as a more traditional TE with blocking responsibilities. With more work in the trenches, he will see fewer targets in the air. Add in Tyreek Hill to the Miami passing attack, and there are just too many things working against Gesicki this year to hit the TD OVER.
