If fretting wagering on NFL spreads — historically the sharpest lines available at any book — props can be an intriguing and outright fun way to have skin in the game for a player’s performance each and every week. This ongoing series will be a weekly feature outlining my favorite player props for TNF, including the six detailed below. All props and odds have been sourced accordingly and tracked for accountability at the bottom of every write-up.

Carson Wentz OVER 17.5 Fantasy Points (-114) — PointsBet Sportsbook
Even in completing 41-of-75 passes (54.6%) for 471 yards and four touchdowns in impossible matchups against the Steelers and Ravens the past two games, Wentz has finished as the QB14 and QB3 with 23.4 fantasy points per game in that stint due to his nine scrambles for 9/60/1 on the ground. The 27-year-old’s legs should help push this one over the hump even if he’s halted yet again through the air. Note that the Giants are still allowing nearly two more fantasy points per game (19.3) to enemy quarterbacks than what this number suggests.
Evan Engram UNDER 39.5 Receiving Yards (-112) — DraftKings Sportsbook
Jason Garrett has taken Engram, an elite five-tool athlete who can separate against the league’s top corners and absorb sieging bullrushes from opposing defensive ends, and turned him into a curl route on film. The former first-rounder lacks the opportunity both downfield (4.9 average depth of target) and inside pay dirt (one end zone target) all the while tying Jimmy Graham for the second-lowest catchable ball rate (66.6%) among tight ends. Engram has eclipsed 35 receiving yards (let alone 39) in 1-of-6 starts this year.
Corey Clement OVER 21.5 Rushing Yards (-115) — PointsBet Sportsbook
Coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles will approach this game with a “running back by committee,” projecting ample work for Clement behind Boston Scott. The latter is still expected to lead this backfield in touches (as he did in Week 1 in place of Miles Sanders), but Clement should receive a fair shake to exceed this mark with 7-9 carries in Scott’s relief.
