Our favorite Jaguars player props for Week 12 against the Texans.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are taking on the Houston Texans at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. Here are our favorite player prop bets, via our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, for this week’s contest.

Evan Engram over 45.5 receiving yards (-115)

Evan Engram first touchdown scorer (+1500)

The Texans have allowed more targets and receptions to tight ends than any other team this season. Plus, linebacker Denzel Perryman (suspension) and safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring) have been ruled out. Could this finally be the week Engram scores a touchdown?

Travis Etienne over 90.5 rushing + receiving yards (-115)

The fantasy community is getting nervous about Etienne’s utilization. He played 81% of snaps and earned 72% of team carries before Jacksonville’s Week 9 bye, but those rates have dropped to 64% and 51%, respectively, over the past two games. I think Etienne will get back on track this week in a massive divisional game, especially with Houston’s aforementioned absences.

Dameon Pierce under 27.5 rushing yards (-110)

The former Gator running back was a full participant in practice this week and will suit up for the Texans on Sunday after missing the past three weeks with an ankle injury. Pierce went over 27.5 rushing yards in each of his seven games played this year, but Devin Singletary may have taken the starting job after posting consecutive 100-yard games in Pierce’s place. I’m not expecting Pierce to have a significant impact in his first game back from injury, especially against a Jaguars defense ranked first in rushing success rate allowed.

Tank Dell over 63.5 receiving yards (-115)

This cat is good. Dell torched the Jaguars for 145 yards in Week 3, and over his past three games, the rookie receiver has collected 35 targets and caught 4 touchdowns. It’ll be tough to slow down C.J. Stroud’s favorite wideout sans Tyson Campbell (hamstring).

Full Week 12 bet slip:

  • Evan Engram over 45.5 receiving yards (-115)
  • Evan Engram first touchdown scorer (+1500)
  • Travis Etienne over 90.5 rushing + receiving yards (-115)
  • Dameon Pierce under 27.5 rushing yards (-110)
  • Tank Dell over 63.5 receiving yards (-115)

Last week: 2-1

Full season: 17-23 (42.5%)
