Sunday is upon us, calling on bettors to dive into Week 3 NFL player props and anytime touchdown bets.
Bettors can find wide arrays of individual player bets to complement traditional wagers. The industry’s best sportsbook apps incentivize new bettors to explore these betting options.
Player Prop & TD Scorer Considerations for NFL Week 3
Kirk Cousins Over 285.5 Passing Yards (-115, BetMGM)
Don’t let Cousins’ poor Monday night showing steer you away from him this week. Sunday’s contest vs. the Lions calls for plenty of scoring and a strong bounceback effort. Cousins is no stranger to shootouts against Detroit, and Sunday’s meeting should promote plenty of offense.

David Montgomery TD (+100, DraftKings)
Montgomery is receiving decent volume out of the backfield, something that should bear fruit in Sunday’s tilt against the porous Texans defense. The Bears’ -150 moneyline odds on DraftKings imply a 60% chance of victory. If you’re buying those odds, buy a Montgomery touchdown. After all, someone needs to score for the Bears on Sunday.

Dameon Pierce Over 14.5 Carries (-104, Caesars)
Rookies do not always develop in a linear trajectory, but we like the way Pierce is trending nonetheless. Pierce increased his snap count (20 to 39) and snap percentage (29% to 62%) while out-carrying No. 2 back Rex Burkhead 15 to zero. Bettors can anticipate Pierce to continue strengthening his grip on the Texans’ backfield.

Deebo Samuel TD (-117, Caesars)
Quarterback Trey Lance rushed 16 times on the season prior to suffering a season-ending injury. Samuel likely would’ve handled some of those carries had a more traditional passer been under center. Jimmy Garoppolo is a traditional passer, which lends itself, in theory, to more offensive opportunities for Samuel. Samuel is a threat to score from so many areas of the field, and increased touches equate to increased chances to find the end zone.
Justin Jefferson TD (-175, FanDuel) | Over 7.5 Receptions (+110, DraftKings)
We like Kirk Cousins to hit the over on passing yards largely because we expect Jefferson to dominate his role in the passing game. Jefferson was a non-factor in Week 2, but he still drew 12 targets. Continued target-share dominance of that degree will yield much louder numbers in the games to come, beginning with Sunday’s matchup with the visiting Lions. The robust target volume also leads us to bet the Over on 7.5 grabs.

A.J. Brown TD (+121, Caesars) | Over 5.5 Receptions (+125, BetMGM)
Brown has been held out of the paint through two games this season. However, finding paydirt is not something foreign to him. A player like Brown being saddled with such long touchdown odds is almost an insult. Not only is he commanding a 35% share of the Eagles targets, but he’s demonstrated an ability to take a short pass or carry to the house in addition to beating defenses deep. Brown and the Eagles take on the Washington Commanders, who have surrendered 300-plus yards passing in each of the season’s first two games, and allowed big performances from opposing lead receivers.
