Season Player Prop - DJ Moore UNDER 800.50 Receiving Yards
DJ Moore is a nice player, but I'm not even sure if he is the #1 WR on this team right now. The Chicago Bears have plenty of pass catcherse to throw the ball to this season. Darnell Mooney has been the Bears top option. Chase Claypool can step into that role as well, and the Bears leading receiver last year was tight end Cole Kmet, who just signed a $50M extension. Not to mention, the Bears have two RBs that also catch passes now as well.
Bears QB Justin Fields is the topper. He showed last season that he liked to run. That does two things - it keeps Chicago from passing, and opens up the possibility for injury. So can Moore for that matter. Playing over are risky in any season long wager, but WRs are the most dangerous. You also have to rely on your QB staying healthy and not falling down in the depth chart. I don't want to say the Bears are loaded with talent, but compared to last year, it's a healthy core of guys to start the season that all might demand reps. The Bears had the league's worst passing attack last year. People are high on Moore in this offense, and I get it - Moore is a good player. Still, an over bettor needs a lot of things to go right, when so much can go wrong.
