The 2017 NFL regular season is one of high anticipation. Thirty-one teams are going to be trying to chase down the New England Patriots with the goal of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in Minneapols. But before teams worry about the postseason, there's a 16-game regular season to contend with.
Props are aplenty for sure for the season ahead that should whet the appetites of NFL bettors throughout the offseason.
Quarterback play is constantly under more and more scrutiny in the NFL. From Drew Brees' five 5,000-yard seasons to Tom Brady's unbelievable ability to defy Father Time, tossing 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions last year, the NFL has had some amazing feats at the quarterback spot. The next wave of quarterbacks, including Marcus Mariota and Andrew Luck are doing brilliant things, too.
Our NFL props this year are definitely unique, including the number of times Luck will be sacked on the season and whether Mariota's streak of red zone passes without an interception will finally be blemished. Continue
Perhaps no other position in the NFL has evolved more over the course of the last 20 years than the running back spot. Backs used to be asked to carry the workload for their teams over and over again, and 20+ carries in the game used to be the norm. Then in the 2000s and early 2010s, virtually every team went to a running back by committee approach, often incorporating three or four backs into their offense on a regular basis to try to lengthen the careers of these rushers.
But just recently, what we're seeing is a resurgence of importance to running backs. Ezekiel Elliott took the NFL by storm last year and led the league in rushing in his rookie campaign, and he did so as the bell cow of the Dallas offense. Now, he's a legitimate threat to break Eric Dickerson's rushing record if he can continue to grow and is leaned upon as heavily as he was in 2016. Others like Le'Veon Bell are all-purpose backs who can get the job done both as a rusher and as a receiver. Are we at the point that a back can have 1,000+ rushing yards and 1,000+ receiving yards? Bell would be the man to do it. Continue
Nowadays, being a top wide receiver is worth more to a team than being a top running back or even a star defensive player. Quarterbacks are the cornerstones of franchises, but without a great wide receiver, he's limited. Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. are two of the most notable receivers in the game, and they've got some really high prop totals to try to reach in the 2017 season.
The commonalities between these players can't be ignored. They're both on explosive offenses, both have quarterbacks who are future Hall of Famers and both have new weapons on the offensive side of the ball that could either eat into their production or ultimately help it out by drawing some attention elsewhere. But in the case of both Beckham and Brown, they've managed to be at the top of their game as solo acts, and it's hard to see their quarterbacks all of a sudden stop throwing the ball their way.

A huge emphasis was put on quarterbacks in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Three teams made big trades to move up in the draft to take QBs, but all three teams had starters already in place in the event they hadn't ultimately drafted one. Not only is projecting the quantity of games started by Houston's Deshaun Watson and Chicago's Mitch Trubisky amongst the top bets in our 2017 NFL rookie props, but there's a lot of emphasis on new running backs as well. Ezekiel Elliott reset the thought of a top 10 running back when he dominated for the Cowboys last season, and now, Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey are going to be asked to do similar with the Jaguars and Panthers.
