Top Players Odds and Betting Analysis
Michael Thomas +500
Michael Thomas, the New Orleans Saints wide receiver didn’t miss a beat in 2019. Not even, thanks to Teddy B-H2O, while starting QB Drew Brees was out injured. In addition to a league-leading 1725 receiving yards, Thomas set a new NFL record with 149 receptions. He has had 1000+ yards in each of his four pro seasons, and 100+ catches in the last three. Moreover, Thomas has had increasing receptions and yards with each new campaign. The Holy Ones have signed Emmanuel Sanders, formerly of the 49ers, and resigned Austin Carr. Nevertheless, Thomas will undoubtedly remain the Peter to Drew’s Breesus. Another thing going got Thomas is his resilience. He has played all 16 regular-season games in each of the past three years. The sky is the limit for this Saint.
Julio Jones +800
As far as the best offshore sportsbooks for US players are concerned, if someone can dethrone Thomas, it’s two-time NFL receiving yards leader Julio ‘Dinero’ Jones (2015, 2018). The Atlanta Falcon has had 1000+ yards in all but two of his nine pro seasons. Including a whopping 1871 in ’15. Jones’s rare combination of size, speed, catching ability, strength, leaping ability, and body control put him in a class apart. As a matter of fact, Jones has just been named PFF’s top wide receiver of the previous decade.
“Julio Jones is the most productive and efficient receiver that PFF has seen since we have been grading. Over the decade, he leads the league in yards per route run (2.69), a statistical category he led the league in for four straight seasons, and he has ranked inside the top five for six seasons running. Jones also has 47 more explosive receiving plays (plays of 15-plus yards) than any other receiver over the decade and has a mind-blowing 12,125 yards over that time. Jones is one of the most physically dominant receivers in NFL history, being too big, strong, fast and athletic for most defenders to live with,” said the website, and it’s tough to argue with that.
DeAndre Hopkins +900
The last was an off-year for Hopkins, at least by his own standards. Of all the seasons the Houston Texan has received for 1000+ yards, 2019 has been the only one he didn’t break the 1200-yard mark. That makes it his third-least productive year, along with 2013 (802) and 2016 (954). He missed only one game last season; only the second year in his seven-season career that’s happened. Of course, neither of those two facts justify the Texans’ stupid-ass decision of trading Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals. I wouldn’t be surprised Hop posted 2000+ yards next season just to spite those idiots in Houston. Even having yet to play a snap in Arizona, Hopkins is the highest-ranked Cardinal in the aforementioned PFF list of the top players of the 2010s. He’s also 4th among receivers, behind Jones, Antonio Brown, and Calvin Johnson.
Chris Godwin +1000
Our last favorite at the best offshore sportsbooks for US players in the Tampa Bay Buc. In 2019 Godwin reached – and surpassed – 1000 receiving yards for the first time in his three-season career. And that was with Jameis Winston, who’s liable to throw as many picks as he does TDs, if not more. Godwin should benefit from the arrival of Tom Brady, even though the GOAT comes with his own built-in favorite target.
