We have reached Week 15 of the NFL season, and for fantasy football players, many of you are in your first week of the postseason.
This week, we have one Thursday Night Football game, three on Saturday, 11 on Sunday, and finally, one on Monday Night Football.
That’s right—bye weeks are over.
Here, we have the three best early-in-the-week player props for this slate. Let’s check them out.
First, we will look at a prop that doesn’t carry much value but could be a great addition for a multi-leg parlay.
Still, this is a prop; whether you bet it solo or in a parlay, that should hit.
On Thursday Night Football, Raiders quarterback Aidan O’Connell will take on a Chargers defense that allows 24 completions for 285 yards, 1.46 passing touchdowns, and 0.54 interceptions per game.
There have been four games this year where a quarterback hasn’t thrown a touchdown against them.
While O’Connell is one of those four, that was his first start ever in the NFL.
Since then, there have been two games he hasn’t thrown a touchdown, which came in his third start and last week in a 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, who allow 234 passing yards and 1.08 passing touchdowns per game.
The Chargers defense is one of the worst in the league. O’Connell should manage at least one passing touchdown here in his second bout against a divisional opponent.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert left Week 14 early with a fracture in his finger, allowing Easton Stick to take over under center in his place.
In relief, Stick completed 13 of 24 passes for 179 yards. He had an average depth of target of 10.7 yards and 7.5 yards per attempt.
Here, Stick did manage one completion for 57 yards, and it was an excellent pass downfield.
On the Raiders, eight players have allowed a long reception of 32.5 yards or more.
While we can’t discredit Stick’s accomplishment in Week 14, this player has made 25 career attempts.
Until we see more sample sizes, we should ride the under here. As is, there are only four players not injured on the Chargers that have a long completion of 33 yards or more.
Stick was drafted in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has seen little playing time.
Lean under on his props here until we see more.

During Josh McDaniels’ tenure as head coach, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow was barely involved. With him gone and Antonio Pierce at the helm, Renfrow has gotten him more involved. Over the past five games, Renfrow has had 28 yards receiving or more in four of them, including in each of his last three games.
The Chargers allow 285 passing yards per game, and receivers average about 175.
Of course, Davante Adams will get the bulk of the looks, but Renfrow can accomplish this with two or three catches.
