Only one target Sunday, but that should change tonight vs. a Raiders team allowing the most receiving yards to Running Backs (RB) these days. Here’s how RB tandems did vs. them through the air in the last 3 weeks:
Tonight, the Rams are touchdown underdogs and expected to play from behind. While Cam Akers has emerged as LA’s primary ball carrier, Vegas is stellar defending the run limiting opponents to 3.97 yards per carry this season. Akers has been less involved in the receiving game, which leads me to expect a bump in Williams’ usage after a quiet week.
The Rams’ QB situation is clearly wobbly and uncertain, but I see that impacting LA’s Wide Receiver output more than Running Backs. At a number this low, all it takes is 2-3 screen passes and/or dump offs to cash the ticket.
I personally put 1.5 units on this @ -115. Odds moved to -120 since then. I’ll track the pick there and would take this prop at the 12.5 line, too.
The Bengals have been getting TORCHED by the tight end position in the last few weeks bringing their season average to the second most allowed. This is perfect spot for Evan Engram...
