The Green Bay Packers lost star receiver Davante Adams in the offseason, but they still boast the reigning MVP in quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Oddsmakers have their win total set at 11 and they remain the favorites for the NFC North title.

If you want to bet on the Packers, but aren’t sure about the win total, why not look at some player props? Here are three props worth looking at.

Allen Lazard over 5.5 TDs (-120)

With no Davante Adams or Marquez Valdes-Scantling there are more than 140 targets up for grabs in Green Bay. Adams alone had nine touchdowns and a 28 percent red-zone target share. MVS had two touchdowns. Those targets and touchdowns have to go somewhere. Lazard had five regular-season touchdowns in 2021 and there’s no way he won’t log at least one more in 2022. This is an easy over for the player pegged to take over as the team's top receiver.

Aaron Jones over 1300.5 rushing/receiving yards (-115)

I love this prop. Remember above when I said there were 140 targets up for grabs? Guess where a lot of those will be going, right into the secure hands of Jones. That’s right. When Adams has missed time in the past, it’s Jones that has been the target hog. We know Rodgers likes “his guys” and has trouble trusting rookie receivers. Even if AJ Dillon takes on a bigger workload on the ground, Jones can make up the difference through the air. By the way – with this total yards prop set so high, I’d also like to note that Jones looks like a major value at his current ADP in fantasy drafts. Don’t sleep on Jones in PPR leagues.

AJ Dillon over 5.5 rushing TDs (-125)

Dillon is PFF’s fifth-highest graded RB since entering the league and he’s now expected to be in an even workload split with Aaron Jones as head coach Matt LaFleur referred to Jones and Dillon as running backs “1A and 1A.” Last year Dillon ranked 12th in red-zone touches, despite only scoring five times. We should expect positive regression this year. Smash the over.
