ThriveFantasy Tips: Week 10
Have you ever heard of ThriveFantasy?
It is a new Daily Fantasy Sports app that is unlike your usual competitive fantasy choices and meant for the everyday fan. ThriveFantasy focuses on top-tier athletes from every sport while streamlining the drafting process. The result is a captivating DFS game that even the casual and hardcore sports fan can enjoy. You build a lineup around a list of simple binary player propositions.
The less likely the player prop is to take place the more points the choice will be worth. You score points based on the number of props you select correctly. As an example, your team could be made up of 15 picks that you select out of an available list of 20. You will also select two in case of emergency or ICE picks. These ICE picks will automatically be added to your team only if an athlete is ruled out of a game prior to their start time. You will be alerted if an ICE is being used. ThriveFantasy has an app that features live updates to let you know in real time how close your picks are to hitting and to provide you a line of sight of how you stack to the competition.
This week’s article will focus on the $15 NFL Week 7 $1,500 Guaranteed Contest highlighting 10 props to target.
303.5 Passing Yards
- Over = 95
- Under = 105
Brees is averaging 292 passing yards per game. The Bengals soft secondary is allowing the most passing yards per game (319) entering Week 10. The Saints are 11-1 straight up in their last 12 games in the early afternoon. Brees has a high ceiling in this matchup and recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
79.5 Receiving Yards
- Over = 100 points
- Under = 100 points
Hill is averaging eight targets, 86 receiving yards and 110 air yards per game. The probability is high that Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson will shadow him with Sammy Watkins unlikely to play. Hill is one of the fastest players in the NFL and has scored 20 or more fantasy points in 44 percent of his games this season. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
- Over = 115 points
- Under = 85 points
Gordon has averaged 4.3 receptions over the last three games. His role continues to expand due to the injury woes of tight end Rob Gronkowski. Last week Gordon had his second 100-yard receiving game in the last three weeks averaging 7.6 targets and 116 air yards per game over that time frame. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
0.5 Receiving Touchdowns
- Over = 125 points
- Under = 75 points
Jones has averaged 11 targets, 117 receiving yards, and 159 air yards per game. He finally scored his first touchdown of the 2018 season last week, but is only averaging 0.5 red zone targets per game. The Browns secondary has allowed 285 passing yards and 1.6 receiving touchdowns per game. The Vegas projected point total of this game is 54. The Falcons are ranked eighth in points per game (28.5) and are 2-1 straight up in their last three road games. The team is also 7-1 straight up in its last eight road games against teams with losing records. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
47.5 Receiving Yards
- Over = 110
- Under = 90
Reed continues to disappoint fantasy players this season. He is only averaging seven targets, 43 receiving yards, and 48 air yards per game this season. The Buccaneers secondary is allowing 307 passing yards per game which is the third highest in the NFL. Reed should also see some additional targets since wide receiver Paul Richardson was placed on injured reserve. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop considering it is not far off from his season averages.
- Over = 75
- Under = 125
Benjamin has been ineffective all season while looking disinterested when running routes. He leads the Bills in targets (53) and air yards (893), but is only averaging 2.2 receptions per game. Terrelle Pryor, in my opinion, is a threat to his target volume. He played 82 percent of the offensive snaps against the Bears last week while Benjamin only played 74 percent. My recommendation is to take the under on this player prop.
77.5 Rushing Yards
- Over = 105
- Under = 95
Gordon has scored 20 or more fantasy points in 77 percent of his games. He’s averaged 15.3 rushing attempts and 83 rushing yards in the seven games Gordon has played in this season. The Raiders defense is an abomination leading the NFL in rushing yards allowed (144). My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
74.5 Receiving Yards
- Over = 110 points
- Under = 90 points
Woods is averaging eight targets, 83 receiving yards, and 92 air yards per game this season. Rams quarterback Jared Goff is averaging 313 passing yards per game. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
109.5 Total Yards
- Over = 95
- Under = 105
The Eagles defense has allowed 353 total yards per game. Elliott has averaged 126 total yards per game in 33 career games. The Cowboys have had success on the road at Lincoln Financial Field. Did you know that the team is 5-1 straight up and against the spread in their last six games in Philadelphia? My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
265.5 Passing Yards
- Over = 105
- Under = 95
Wentz has averaged 298 passing yards per game in the six games he’s played in this season. He has had success against the Cowboys in three career games throwing for 615 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions. My recommendation is to take the over on this player prop.
