Bettors and fantasy owners should realize that Burrow will have a plethora of talented targets at his disposal in wide receivers A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. How many yards will he throw for?

Daniel Jones threw exactly 24 touchdowns last season, and he did not have at his disposal the weapons in the passing game that Burrow will this upcoming season. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate, and Joe Mixon are an excellent group to have in your first NFL season. How many touchdowns will he throw for?

TUA TAGOVAILOA 

PASSING YARDS

How much playing time Tagovailoa receives is the biggest factor on this prop betting option. A shortened training camp, Miami giving Tagovailoa more injury rehab time, plus Fitzpatrick playing the final year of his contract all point to backing one side of this bet.

RECEIVING YARDS

Odds courtesy of FanDuel

Odds courtesy of FanDuel

Reagor played slot and wide receiver, lined up in the backfield, plus returned kicks at TCU. That versatility is similar to Deebo Samuel in San Francisco, and Reagor should get a lot of playing time during his rookie season.
