Seahawks vs. Packers: The best player prop bets for Week 10
The Week 10 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers promises plenty of excitement, as quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers are both expected to be healthy and ready to go.
Let’s dig into the assorted player prop wagers available for this contest, and highlight our favorite three.

D.K. Metcalf to score a touchdown
Just about halfway through this 17-game schedule, D.K. Metcalf is projected to finish below his 16-game total from 2020 in both receptions and receiving yards. However, he’s still been plenty valuable to Seattle this year, especially in the red zone.
Metcalf has hauled in eight touchdowns this year, including three from backup quarterback Geno Smith over the last two weeks. Only the Los Angeles Rams’ Cooper Kupp (10) can boast more touchdown grabs on the campaign.
Expect Wilson to link up with his favorite target in the end zone in this one.
Tyler Lockett Over/Under 5.5 receptions
After a quiet first couple of games with Smith under center, Tyler Lockett exploded with a 12-reception outing in a 31-7 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8. Lockett may not be able to replicate that performance in this spot, but he should get to six receptions rather easily.
Lockett averaged 5.69 receptions per game over the last two seasons, and in his last start against Green Bay (the divisional round of 2019), he brought in nine of 10 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown.
A.J. Dillon to score a touchdown
A.J. Dillon has proven his worth as a reliable backup to Aaron Jones this year, amassing 355 rushing yards on 76 carries – good for 4.7 yards per attempt (better than Jones’ 4.4 mark in that category). He’s also caught 14 of 16 passes aimed at him for 134 yards.
Yet Dillon remains with just one touchdown to his credit all year, a receiving score against the Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 10. He seems overdue to “vulture” a touchdown from Jones fantasy owners this week.
The Seahawks’ stoppers are eighth from the bottom in fantasy points allowed to running backs this year, as they’ve surrendered 1,403 total yards and seven touchdowns to tailbacks through eight games. Take advantage of the generous odds on Dillon to expose this defense.
