NFL Prop Shop: Week 11
After a disappointing 1-3 showing last week, we're now 23-17 inside the Prop Shop this season.
Time to get some of that back in Week 11; here are four picks to click on Sunday.
Most passing yards
Aaron Rodgers vs. Matthew Stafford: Take Rodgers
Even with a depleted receiving corps, I think we'll see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense shine coming out of the bye week.
Of course, that's not a stretch when you consider how banged-up the Lions are in the secondary. Just last week they allowed a struggling Christian Ponder to throw for 221 yards and two touchdowns in a double-digit loss to the Vikings.
Matt Stafford has been piling up the passing yardage, but the Lions will have to do something to keep the Packers offense off the field on Sunday, and that should mean a healthy dose of their ground game.
Mark Sanchez vs. Sam Bradford: Take Bradford
Mark Sanchez continues to take a lot of heat from the growing number of Jets critics. He hasn't responded well to adversity in the past, and he's admittedly in a tough spot with an extremely weak supporting cast around him. This doesn't look like an ideal bounce-back spot against an aggressive and underrated Rams defense.
Sam Bradford has thrown for over 200 yards in four straight games, and has his favorite target back in the fold in Danny Amendola. There's little reason to expect a slowdown from Bradford against a struggling Jets secondary.
Most rushing yards
LeSean McCoy vs. Alfred Morris: Take McCoy
With Michael Vick sidelined, you have to think that Andy Reid will finally give in and hand Shady McCoy a heavier workload on Sunday afternoon. The explosive back is in excellent form having gained 201 yards on only 35 carries over the last two weeks.
Redskins rookie RB Alfred Morris has been terrific at times this season, but has sputtered lately, gaining only 135 yards on the ground over his last two games. The Eagles defense should come to play this week, and I'm confident in their ability to bottle up Morris.
Most pass receptions
A.J. Green vs. Dwayne Bowe: Take Green
The Chiefs offense is stuck in neutral, and that has a lot to do with the ineffectiveness of QB Matt Cassel.
Dwayne Bowe has suffered as a result, catching four passes or less in three of his last four games. To make matters worse, he's been limited in practice due to a thigh injury this week, so I'm not counting on a breakout performance on Sunday.
A.J. Green continues to be a steady contributor in the Bengals offense, hauling in at least seven catches in six of nine games this season. He has 27 catches in four road games, and should continue his assault at Arrowhead Stadium this week.

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about these two teams? For me, it's efficient offenses, backed by smothering defensive play and superb goaltending. So, I think it's a bit of surprise that the total is 3-1-2 so far through the first six in the Western Conference Finals, including having sailed above the posted number in three straight. With a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals on the line though, I feel that the UNDER is finally worthy of a second look here as each of these teams clamps down defensively and waits for the other to make the first mistake. In my opinion, this is a great situational play, but it's also very strong from an Over/Under trend based stand point as Chicago has seen the total go UNDER the number in four of six this year after playing to three or more OVERs in a row, while Anaheim has seen it dip below the posted number in five of seven in the same position. With players risking life and limb getting into shooting and passing lanes, all signs do indeed point to the UNDER as the correct move in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.
