With the preseason over and roster cut to 53, the best time to draft fantasy football teams is officially upon us. However, if you are looking to keep the action going between your drafts, making some NFL picks over at PrizePicks will serve you nicely!
PrizePicks is a daily fantasy sports (DFS) site that presents you with player props across a variety of sports. Stringing together a few picks can payout up to 10 times the entry fee. Users are even able to combine picks across the different sports, but we will stick to NFL for this article. The only rule is you must make picks for players on at least two different teams.
Here are three great season-long NFL picks for you to lock in right now! But I must warn you — you should only place the following fantasy football picks if you like money.
It is important to note that, much like odds that update throughout the day, these props at PrizePicks are subject to change. So, if you like these NFL picks below, it is wise to jump on them quickly.
Fantasy Football PrizePicks Props: NFL Receiving Picks
When discussing fantasy football props for the upcoming season, it is important to remember that the league added a 17th game to the schedule.
Davante Adams: Over 10.5 Receiving TDs
Davante Adams is the best wide receiver in the NFL, playing with the best quarterback in the league. This already is unfair. However, their ability to be on the same page during broken plays is what makes Adams fully unguardable in the red zone.
We saw this last season, with him catching 18 touchdowns in 14 games. While Adams has played a full season just once, the extra game this season also makes this a lock. Davante Adams is also playing for a new contract, and he has made it clear that he deserves to be the highest-paid receiver in NFL history. After 18 touchdowns last season, you can bet Adams’ goal will be 20 this year.
Will Fuller: Under 875.5 Yards Receiving
While the NFL has its first 17-game season this year, Will Fuller will only have 16, as he is suspended for the first game of the season. On top of that, Fuller has proven to be injury-prone his entire career. In fact, he was already being held out of practice due to an undisclosed injury.
Added to the health concerns, Fuller also gets a downgrade at quarterback, going from Deshaun Watson to Tua Tagovailoa. There are a lot of question marks with this Miami Dolphins passing attack. Last season was also the only year Fuller totaled over 875.5 yards, and he still only had 879. I’m not assuming a switch to Miami will result in the best season of his career.
Rob Gronkowski: Over 4.5 Receiving TDs
Rob Gronkowski got off to a slow start in Tampa Bay, and many wondered if he was washed up. One of the big reasons for his slow start was his conditioning. He was not fully in game shape, and playing down in the hot Tampa conditions made things worse. Yet, Gronkowski still finished with seven touchdowns.
Again, adding a 17th game to the schedule means Gronkowski needs to get one touchdown every three games. He also played less than 60% of the snaps last season, which kept him healthy and available the entire year. Assuming said health, five touchdowns should not be much of an issue, as Gronk is the best red zone weapon this high-powered Buccaneers offense has.
Locking in these three fantasy football NFL picks earns you five times your entry fee! If you’re feeling less bullish, you can select to lock them in using “Flex Play,” which means you only need to get two of the three picks correct to cash. Of course, this only pays out 2.25x if all three are correct or 1.25x if two hit. Personally, I will hedge by locking in these three picks for both the Power Play and Flex Play, giving myself a safety net in case of an injury.
