Cowboys-Panthers Player Prop Bet for Week 11
Cowboys-Panthers Player Prop Pick for Bryce Young
When the Carolina Panthers moved up to select rookie quarterback Bryce Young in this year’s draft, they were likely hoping for some stronger early returns. Unfortunately, the Alabama product has struggled to adapt to the NFL — although a bad receiving corps and struggling offensive line may be more of the issue than Young himself. Young’s top receiving options are veteran Adam Thielen, the longtime second option in Minnesota, DJ Chark Jr., rookie Jonathan Mingo and veteran tight end Hayden Hurst. His offensive line ranks a shaky 19th in pass-block win rate (54%).
Young now draws a frightening matchup with the Dallas Cowboys this week. The Cowboys are coming off a 32-point clubbing of the Giants in which they tormented rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito. DeVito was picked off once, took five sacks and generated just 61 net passing yards. But while DeVito couldn’t do much through the air, he managed to gain 41 rushing yards on seven attempts. The Cowboys have now surrendered the eighth-most total rushing yards to quarterbacks at 246, good for 27.3 per game.
Although Young hasn’t done a ton of running in the NFL, we know from his time at Alabama that he can make splash plays with his legs. Young has run 20 rushing attempts to his name this year, 18 of which were tracked as scrambles. He turned those attempts into 135 rushing yards, good for 16.9 yards per game. Young has recorded at least 11 rushing yards in five of his eight starts this season, and Dallas’ defense is a perfect target for him to pick up some more yards on the ground.
