Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers: Rapid Fire Contest

Recommended Prop Pick: Two of Three: Aaron Rodgers -17.5 passing yards vs. Kirk Cousins, Davante Adams -7.5 receiving yards vs Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook -11.5 rushing yards vs. Aaron Jones.

The Vikings looked like an absolute stalwart at home vs the Falcons rushing attack last week, and the Packers struggled mightily to move the ball on the ground vs. the Bears, which is why I am ok with conceding 11.5 rushing yards on Dalvin Cook vs. Aaron Jones. In Week 2, I think Green Bay tries to get their passing game moving in the right direction vs a team that gave up 272 passing yards a week ago. Both of these reasons are why I lean on the Packers passing attack with Aaron Rodgers -17.5 passing yards and Devante Adams -7.5 receiving yards to outduel Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen. Adams is the clear-cut number one in Green Bay and showed it last week by garnering eight of the team's 27 targets.  Add in the fact that Minnesota only threw the ball 10 times last week (albeit they were ahead the entire game) and you could see a rusty Vikings passing game.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Detroit Lions: Rush Hour Contest

Recommended Prop Pick: Kerryon Johnson and Austin Ekeler over 126.5 rushing yards.

Neither one of these defenses proved to be very strong against the run in Week 1. The Chargers gave up the second-most rushing yards of any team last week, allowing 187 yards on the ground. 174 of these yards came at the hands of Marlon Mack. The Lions, on the other hand, allowed 87 yards on the ground in a game in which Kyler Murray was mostly in pass mode for the second half. They also struggled to stop the run in 2018 when they allowed the ninth-most rushing yards to running backs. Both of these backs should see plenty of work and be able to collect yards on the ground throughout a game that figures to be close.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders: Over / Under Contest

Recommended Prop Pick: Three of Four: Patrick Mahomes over 300.5 passing yards, Tyrell Williams over 67.5 receiving yards, Travis Kelce over 6.5 receptions, and Josh Jacobs under 72.5 rushing yards.

This game should be a rather high scoring game, which is why I lean on the over for each of these props except Jacobs. Mahomes threw for nearly 400 yards last week on the vaunted Jacksonville secondary and should have no problems moving the ball through the air. Couple that with the fact that the Oakland offense should be able to move the ball effectively against the Chiefs Defense, and you have a quarterback that will have the incentive to throw. Kelce likely becomes the default number one target for Mahomes now that Tyreek Hill is out, which means he should be able to surpass 6.5 receptions, especially considering the Raiders were ranked third-worst against the tight end on a points per game basis in 2018. Kelce also put up a monster 12 catch 168-yard performance at Oakland last season.

Tyrell Williams will likely be the default number one target in the Raiders' passing game with the departure of Antonio Brown, and this was shown last week by his 6 receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. This occurred in a game where Oakland was never really threatened or forced to move the ball through the air, which almost certainly won't be the case Sunday against Kansas City. This is also why Josh Jacobs may have a difficult time eclipsing the 72.5 rushing yard mark. He was a bell-cow on Monday night, carrying the ball 23 times for 85 yards, but it's hard to imagine the Raiders will be in a position to give him the rock that many times in a game they will likely be trailing.

New Orleans Saints @ Los Angeles Rams: Rapid Fire Contest

Recommended Prop Pick: Two of Two: Jared Goff +17.5 passing yards vs. Drew Brees and Robert Woods +2.5 receptions vs. Michael Thomas,

This is a game where I think New Orleans is going to try and establish the run early with Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. We all know Drew Brees and the New Orleans passing attack doesn't seem to have the same luster on the road as it does down in the Big Easy. The Rams allowed Christian McCaffery to run all over them last week to the tune of 128 yards on 19 carries. I expect Kamara to be able to do the same, which means Drew Brees will have to throw less. That makes Jared Goff +17.5 passing yards very enticing. The same goes for Robert Woods +2.5. Woods was targeted more times (13) than any other Rams receiver last week and managed to haul it eight of those targets. Michael Thomas will still get his share of targets and receptions, but with the Saints likely to run the ball more, I'll take the Woods +2.5,
