4 Season Long WR Props to Target for 2023
Wide receivers are definitely my favorite position to make season-long bets on. There can be a lot of variance from season to season, which is what makes this an intriguing position to judge.
However, based on the news that we’ve received during the offseason, we’re more than willing to step up to the challenge. Without further ado, here are our favorite season-long player props for wide receivers.
Justin Jefferson OVER 1399.5 Receiving Yards
Hitting the over on 1400 receiving yards seems like a tall task for any player. However, if someone is going to do it again this year, it’ll be Justin Jefferson.
Not only has Jefferson established himself as one of the league’s best receivers, but he’s had at least 1400 yards in each of his first three NFL seasons.
There is bound to be a season that he’ll get less than that total, but we’re not willing to bet that 2023 is going to be that year.
Mike Evans OVER 920.5 Receiving Yards
This might be a lazy analysis, but honestly, how could you bet against Mike Evans at this point? He is a nine-year NFL veteran and has achieved at least 1,000 yards in each of those seasons.
Evans heads into the 2023 season with the diciest quarterback situation of his career, as there is a QB competition between Kyle Trask and Baker Mayfield. While Trask and Mayfield might not inspire Tom Brady levels of confidence, Evans has proven that, no matter the QB, he finds a way.
With that in mind, we’re very excited to take the over on Evans’ yardage total, if for nothing else than to root for this 1,000-yard streak to continue.
Christian Watson OVER 765.5 Receiving Yards
The Green Bay Packers find themselves in a unique situation ahead of the 2023 season. Their starting QB will not be named Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre, something that’s been the case for over three decades.
Whether Jordan Love turns out to be a franchise star remains to be seen, but we are confident that Watson will be this team’s WR1. In his rookie season, Watson turned 41 receptions into 611 yards and seven touchdowns.
We haven’t seen much of the Watson-Love connection, but his combination of size and speed was put on full display last year. With that being said, we’re looking forward to watching him on the field this year, hoping to crush his yardage total of 765.5.
Allen Lazard UNDER 699.5 Receiving Yards
Speaking of Aaron Rodgers, Allen Lazard has made his way to the New York Jets, reuniting the former Packers. Lazard established himself as a top target in Green Bay last season, racking up 788 total yards, the most of his career.
However, the Packers receiving room wasn’t exactly filled with top-tier talent. That can’t be said about Lazard’s counterparts, who include Garrett Wilson, Mecole Hardman, and Corey Davis.
He’ll have plenty of competition in New York, resulting in fewer opportunities for big plays. While we appreciate the Rodgers-Lazard reunion, we’re not expecting this to result in big receiving numbers for Lazard this year.
