The squeaky wheel gets the grease, right?
After complaining about the absolute robbery that took place the previous week, I went 2-for-2 on my Week 7 props. (And I even nailed my first teaser on Sunday!)
But now is not the time to celebrate. We’ve got another Monday night matchup that could wind up a pretty similar result to last week’s beating my Jets took. The Miami Dolphins head to Pittsburgh listed as 14-point underdogs tonight, with kickoff set for 8:15pm ET.
Here’s my two props for tonight:
Prop #1: James Conner Rushing Yards

*All odds taken October 28
James Conner has yet to surpass 55 yards on the ground in any game this season. James Conner has yet to play the Miami Dolphins, though, who have allowed the second-most rushing yards per game (160.8).
Not only does Miami face a lot of rushing attempts because they’re often way behind, but they’re also allowing RBs to pick up 4.7 yards per carry.
With Mason Rudolph back under center for the Steelers, expect Pittsburgh to get up early and lean on Conner to ice the game.
Prop #2: Ryan Fitzpatrick Passing Yards

Even before Pittsburgh jumps out to a lead in this one, Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to be forced into throwing the ball. The Steelers allow just 3.8 yards per carry, good for sixth in the NFL, and the Dolphins only average 3.3 yards per carry, the fourth-worst mark in the league.
With Fitzpatrick likely to (a) face a lot of passing situations early in the game and (b) play from behind for most of the game, 228 passing yards is very attainable.
