Our favorite Jaguars player props for Week 16 against the Buccaneers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday. Here are our favorite player prop bets (via DraftKings Sportsbook) for this week’s contest.

Cade Otton over 22.5 receiving yards (-110)

Jacksonville has allowed the 10th-most targets and 5th-most yards to tight ends this season. David Njoku (6/91/2) and Isaiah Likely (5/70/1) recently had strong performances against the Jaguars sans safety Andre Cisco. Cisco was limited in practice this week, so he could suit up and make an impact, but I can still imagine Baker Mayfield fitting a ball to Cade Otton over Jacksonville’s linebackers at least once this game.

On Thursday, Mike Caldwell said of Mayfield, “From what I’ve watched, lately he’s really playing at a high level. He’s getting the ball where it’s supposed to go, he’s making plays for them, he really throws the seam ball really well.”

Rachaad White under 71.5 rushing yards (-115)

Rachaad White over 26.5 receiving yards (-135)

The Jaguars have allowed the 8th-least rushing yards to running backs this season, but they’ve also allowed the most receptions and 3rd-most receiving yards to the position.

White’s rushing line is ballooned by a month of solid production on the ground. After DaVon Hamilton impressed last week for Jacksonville, I think the Jags will be able to control the trenches when the Bucs have the ball.

White is still a dangerous player out in space, though. He’s surpassed 27 receiving yards in 7 of 10 games since Tampa Bay’s Week 5 bye, and trails only Christian McCaffrey in receiving yards by a running back this season.

Parker Washington anytime touchdown scorer (+310)

I thought this quote from ESPN insider Dan Graziano was interesting.

With Christian Kirk already out with a groin injury and Zay Jones injuring his hamstring in Sunday night’s loss to the Ravens, the Jaguars’ wide receiver corps is getting thin. Whenever Trevor Lawrence returns from concussion protocol, he’ll have fewer options in the passing game. The team is going to look for a bigger contribution from sixth-round rookie Parker Washington.

...Look for Washington to get more opportunities moving forward as the Jags try to hold off Houston and Indianapolis for the AFC South title.

Full Week 16 bet slip:

  • Cade Otton over 22.5 receiving yards (-110)
  • Rachaad White under 71.5 rushing yards (-115)
  • Rachaad White over 26.5 receiving yards (-135)
  • Parker Washington anytime touchdown scorer (+310)

Last week: 2-1

Full season: 25-30 (45.5%)
