2022 AFC West odds, NFL props: Justin Herbert favored to lead loaded division’s QBs in passing yards


Just a couple of yrs ago, the AFC West could possibly have been the NFL’s worst division in conditions of total excellent of starting quarterbacks. With the Denver Broncos vastly upgrading this offseason by trading for foreseeable future Hall of Famer Russell Wilson, it truly is now easily the very best. Wilson, the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, the Chargers’ Justin Herbert and the Raiders’ Derek Carr all contact the division dwelling. None of them are going anywhere before long, either. DraftKings has an intriguing prop on which AFC West QB throws for the most yards this season.

It’s no authentic shock that Herbert is the +120 most loved for the reason that he is also the +550 most loved at DK to lead the NFL in passing yards, while Caesars Sportsbook has the Buccaneers’ Tom Brady as the +700 favored and Herbert 2nd at +750, with Mahomes fourth at +800. DK has Mahomes 3rd at +900.

I might picture Mahomes (+150 on this prop) would be favored for both equally if the Chiefs hadn’t traded absent All-Pro wideout Tyreek Hill this offseason to Miami. Hill averaged 1,258 obtaining yards the earlier two seasons.

Though Brady led the NFL with 5,316 yards final time, Herbert was 2nd with 5,014 and has established the NFL document for most passing yards in a player’s initial two seasons with 9,350, shattering the prior mark of 8,196 by the Colts’ Andrew Luck. Keep in mind, Herbert was not even the 7 days 1 starter his rookie calendar year – Tyrod Taylor was. That looks humorous now.

Carr could be the best value at +350 looking at he included most likely the NFL’s finest receiver to his arsenal this offseason in previous Packers All-Professional Davante Adams. Carr was fifth in the league past 12 months with 4,804 yards when his top wideouts ended up Hunter Renfrow, Bryan Edwards, Zay Jones and Henry Ruggs (now out of the NFL). Carr also has just one of the league’s best limited ends in Darren Waller.

It makes perception that Wilson is the +1200 extensive shot on this prop as the Broncos continue to determine to operate the ball loads with an great 1-2 working back punch of Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon III. As fantastic as Wilson is, he has in no way thrown for additional than 4,212 yards. You also have the weather issue in Denver in the back half of the year.  

If you are questioning, and I was, the very last AFC West quarterback to direct the NFL in passing yards was the Broncos’ Peyton Manning in 2013 when he established the league history with 5,477.
