A.J. Brown, WR, Philadelphia Eagle | 69.5 Receiving Yards
In case you didn’t hear, A.J. Brown and Jalen Hurts had a bit of a heated discussion on the sideline during their 34-28 Week 2 win against the Minnesota Vikings.

It is no secret that things can get a little chippy on an NFL sideline between teammates, but allow me to put a positive spin as they head into their Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brown’s four receptions for 29 receiving yards could’ve drastically improved if a touchdown reception wasn’t called back due to a holding penalty in the second half of the team’s win against the Vikings in Week 2.
The frustration likely stems from Brown’s second least productive game in an Eagles jersey, which is evident by the fact that the only other time he failed to top 30 yards receiving during his time in Philly was the team’s upset loss in Week 10 against the Washington Commanders last season.
Brown is still an elite player who will be facing off against a Bucs secondary that has given up 100-yard performances to Justin Jefferson and DJ Moore in both weeks to start the season. I believe Brown becomes the third receiver to give the Bucs secondary issues in 2023.
Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles | 238.5 Passing Yards
Speaking of the Eagles’ passing game, Hurts has failed to top 200 yards through the air in a game through the first two weeks of the season.
Sure, that is not exactly an encouraging sign for a passing yardage prop that currently sits at 238.5 yards, but let’s give this a little bit of context.
The Eagles jumped out to an early 16-0 lead against the formidable New England Patriots defensive unit, which had Hurts protecting a lead against a dangerous opponent on the road.
Then in Week 2, the Eagles discovered that they could simply play bully ball against the Minnesota Vikings and run the ball down their throat to the tune of 48 carries for 259 rushing yards, which took the air out of the ball.
This week, the Eagles face a far more formidable rushing defense in Tampa Bay, which should force Hurts to attack the Bucs suspect secondary to generate points.
I think we finally get a big performance from Hurts this week.
Puka Nacua, WR, Los Angeles Rams | 67.5 Receiving Yards
If oddsmakers are going to continue to doubt Puka Nacua, then you continue to take advantage of this development in prop games.
What is there to be said that hasn’t already been about the historic start to Puka Nacua’s career?
He led the NFL in targets and receptions through the first two weeks of the season and enters the Week 3 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals as the leading man in a pass-heavy offense that still doesn’t have Cooper Kupp in the lineup.
Nacua will still be featured in this offense, which should help him hit the 68-yard threshold for a third consecutive week.
Rachaad White, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers | 49.5 Receiving Yards
Rachaad White is coming off one of the best games of his young career after running for 73 yards on 17 carries against the Chicago Bears.
While this is certainly an encouraging performance for the second-year back, let’s not get too hasty.
In White’s 19 career games, he has topped the 50-yard rushing mark just four times.
This Eagles defense is giving up an average of just 52 rushing yards per game through the first two weeks.
For some more context, the aforementioned Vikings — who gave up 175 rushing yards to D’Andre Swift in Week 2 — held White to just 39 rushing yards on 17 carries in Week 1.
The Eagles’ front four is far more formidable than the Vikings, and Philly’s offense could find success against the Bucs secondary from the opening possession. If the Bucs fall behind while struggling to get anything going on the ground early in this contest, I could see them abandoning the running game altogether in this one.
