Welcome to our PrizePicks fantasy props picks! If you have never played, PrizePicks allows you to pick two to five players to win up to 10x your money on any entry. Although the user can combine picks from a variety of sports, this article focuses on the NFL Week 16 Thursday Night Football slate between the 49ers and Titans. PrizePicks designates a player prop or fantasy point total on select players and you need to choose whether that player will go over or under that total.
THURSDAY NIGHT NFL WEEK 16 PRIZEPICKS PLAYS
DEEBO SAMUEL OVER 40.5 RECEIVING YARDS
Deebo Samuel has had to show off his versatility as a running back with Elijah Mitchell out of the lineup. But with Jeff Wilson Jr. finally waking up last week, Samuel should see more targets in a juicy matchup against the Titans. Over his last five games, Samuel has exceeded 40.5 receiving yards just two times but hit 60 yards on four receptions in Week 15. He has a chance to have a big game tonight against a Titans’ secondary that’s given up over 150 yards receiving per game and the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.
D’ONTA FOREMAN OVER 11.5 FANTASY POINTS
He’s no Derrick Henry (who is?) but D’Onta Foreman has filled in admirably as the Titans’ de-facto RB1. Foreman has either cracked 100 yards rushing or scored a touchdown in each of his last three outings — scoring 15.5, 14.2, and 12.2 fantasy points, respectively. Tonight, he gets a 49ers defense that’s given up 12 touchdowns to opposing running backs and the 15th most fantasy points to running backs.
RYAN TANNEHILL OVER 13.5 RUSHING YARDS
When opposing defenses bear down and get after the quarterback, Ryan Tannehill has no issue scampering to move the sticks. Over his last three games, Tannehill has rushed for 18, 29, and 24 yards and has exceeded 13.5 rushing yards eight times this season. Tannehill has rushed two or more times in every game this season and should surpass this total on two or three carries.
JEFF WILSON JR. UNDER 61.5 RUSHING YARDS
I mentioned above that Jeff Wilson Jr. finally woke up and broke out in Week 15. However, he squares off against the league’s second-best run defense on Thursday. The Titans are allowing only 86.9 rushing yards per game and surrendered only eight yards on eight carries against the Jaguars in Week 14 and 35 yards on 17 carries to the Steelers in Week 15. Kyle Shanahan will likely test the ground game early, but he could abandon it if it doesn’t work.
