There are eight divisions to deal with here, each with four teams apiece. There’s eight four-team races amongst teams that will play each other twice.

Placing a bet on who will lead the NFL in receiving yards can offer value because almost every year a new player wins and there are no prohibitive favorites. Last season, there was suspense during the season, with Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones leading in yards for the second time. No player has led the league in yards more than twice since Jerry Rice did it. This season features a stocked list of viable candidates. Loot gives his bets for players to have the most receiving yards in 2019.
There is a lot to consider when betting on which quarterback will have the most passing yards in a season. Unlike other props, this seems to be one where you don’t really have to account for every aspect of the team.

With Ben Roethlisberger leading the league last season, it was the fourth time in five years that the passing yards leader came from a team that didn’t make the playoffs. So what loser should you bet on in 2019? LL gives you his pick for the QB with the most passing yards!
