2017 NFL Regular Season Most Receiving Yards Props

2017 NFL Regular Season Most Receiving Yards Props
In an increasingly pass-first NFL, the list of elite wide receivers looking to rack up the most yards is growing each day. Antonio Brown and Julio Jones may be the frontrunners, but which star wideout will post the most receiving yards in 2017? We break it down for you with our top five contenders.

NFL Most Receiving Yards Odds

There are a handful of elite wide receivers in the National Football League, but which one will stand out the most this season?

Pittsburgh Steelers star wideout Antonio Brown, who finished fifth in receiving yards despite not having Ben Roethlisberger to throw him the ball for much of last season, is primed for another monster season and is the frontrunner to record the most yards in 2017.

However, don’t count out Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones, who would have most likely collected the most yards had he not missed two games in 2016. So let’s break down all the top contenders for the receiving yards championship, with odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.

Antonio Brown (+400)

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the 2017-18 NFL season among the early favorites to win the Super Bowl. In order to accomplish that feat, the Steelers will need Antonio Brown to be at his absolute best. Which means finishing fifth in yards receiving — much like he did last season — just won’t cut it. The Steelers are going to ask more of Brown, who in four seasons with the club has 481 catches for 6,315 yards and 43 touchdowns.

Last season’s decline was due in part to Brown getting double coverage treatment and opposing teams taking away passing routes for the five-time Pro Bowler. Now that Brown knows what to expect, watch for him to counter with a massive year of his own. Let’s not forget, Brown’s done this before having finished first in receptions in 2014 and 2015.

Julio Jones (+400)

Two games on the sidelines essentially cost Julio Jones the receiving yards title last season, paving the way for Indianapolis Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton to earn the crown. Jones, who has battled a foot injury in the off-season, will be on the field Week 1 and should be considered a legitimate candidate to record the most receiving yards in 2017.

Jones racked up 1,409 yards but was only able to find the end zone six times last season. Jones averaged 17 yards per reception and 100.6 yards per game — both which were the most in the league. Bovada is pegging Jones as a +400 favorite to complete what he fell just short of a season ago — posting the most receiving yards in the NFL.

Odell Beckham (+500)

While the top two receivers on this list hold the best chances of winning the receiving yards title, Odell Beckham is certainly a close second. The New York Giants receiver, known for making the highlight reels for his remarkable one-handed catches, is a +500 favorite to collect the most yards this season. Beckham recorded 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016 — down from his 1,450 yards and 13 TDs the previous season. In three seasons since breaking into the NFL in 2014, Beckham has 288 career receptions, 4,122 yards and 35 touchdowns.

T.Y. Hilton (+1200)

Andrew Luck’s favorite target is returning to defending his crown as the receiving yards champion. T.Y. Hilton narrowly earned the honor last season after finishing with 1,448 yards receiving. But can the Colts’ No. 1 wideout repeat the same success? Hilton averaged 90.5 yards per game, which put him second in that category behind Julio Jones.

Hilton has the benefit of having Luck throwing him the ball — an advantage over many of the top wide receivers in the National Football League. Bettors won’t be jumping on the +1200 odds offered by Bovada prior to the season. However, if Hilton can have a few big weeks early on, money may start pouring in on Indy’s best pass catcher.

Mike Evans (+1200)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ top receiver quietly had a monster season in 2016, finishing fourth in receptions (96) and yards (1,321). After barely missing the playoffs last season, the Bucs will look to take the next step and in order to do that, Mike Evans will have to perform at his highest level.

Evans may be a long shot to record the most receiving yards outright, but his workload is going to increase as the Buccaneers will use their No. 1 target more and more, especially in big situations. Based on pure talent, Evans ranks with the best in this list and bettors should seriously consider backing the Bucs’ wide receiver in 2017.
