With Christmas in the rear-view mirror, we’re moving onto Week 17 of the NFL season with the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets on Thursday Night Football. The Jets season is over in terms of the playoff picture, but the Browns, with ten wins, are looking to maintain their spot in the postseason with a reborn Joe Flacco under center against an old team of his. 

Below are our three best player props for this matchup.

Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets Best Player Props

Pick: David Njoku Any Time Touchdown (+160) at Caesars

Since Flacco came to town, Njoku has been a favorite target of his, catching four touchdowns in his last three games and having 91 receiving yards or more in two of them. 

This season, the Jets are allowing opposing tight ends to catch nearly five passes for almost 45 yards, and they’ve allowed a touchdown to the position eight times this season, including last week to the Washington Commanders. 

In addition to the four touchdowns, Njoku has had at least eight targets in his last three games, too. 

So, between his increased target share, touchdown prowess and the Jets defense coming off a game allowing a touchdown to the position, feel confident in taking Njoku to score here at +160.

Pick: Joe Flacco Over 0.5 Interceptions (-220) at DraftKings

While Flacco has been ballin’ out in Cleveland, he does have his fair share of turnovers. Since taking over the starting job in Week 13, Flacco has thrown at least one interception in every game. He has five over the last two weeks. 

He’s also attempted at least 42 passes in all of those games. 

The Jets defense is still a potent one, intercepting opposing quarterbacks on average 0.93 times per game. They had two last week, though they were in a bit of a rut in Weeks 13, 14, and 15. 

This is a former team of Flacco’s, and of course, there are excellent cornerbacks on the Jets, namely Sauce Gardner, who should look to wrangle in wide receiver Amari Cooper after a stellar Week 15 performance that shattered receiving records for the Browns (265 yards, two touchdowns). 

Look for Flacco to continue slinging the ball around here and have at least one interception.

Pick: Joe Flacco Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+185) at DraftKings

We’re going to take a roll of the dice here and also bet on Flacco to have two passing touchdowns or more. 

Since Week 13, when he took over the job, he’s had multiple touchdown passes in each game. The Jets defense, however, may have other plans. They allow just 1.07 passing touchdowns per game. They have only allowed three quarterbacks to have multiple passing touchdown outings—Josh Allen, Dak Prescott, and Russell Wilson. 

The Browns are 7.5-point favorites here, which could allow the Browns to simply run the ball and play keep-away, but again, as mentioned before, Flacco has had at least 42 attempts in every game. 

Look for him to keep up the attempts and turn in a stellar performance at home against his old team.
