Thursday Night Football Prop Bets

Here's three of the best prop bets for Steelers-Vikings, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Steelers vs Vikings TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Najee Harris - Rushing Yards: Over 72.5 (-110)

Najee Harris' rushing production has slowed down with the Steelers trailing big in recent weeks. He did rush for 71 yards against the top rushing defense in the league (the Baltimore Ravens) last Sunday, though, and this matchup could get him back to the heights he's capable of. The Vikings are allowing 131.5 rushing yards per game, the fourth-highest mark this season. And with the Steelers as only 3.5-point underdogs, this contest should be close enough for Harris to see his usually large workload on the ground.

2. Tyler Conklin - Receiving Yards: Over 37.5 (-110)

Adam Thielen being ruled out for this game opens up a massive opportunity for Tyler Conklin. Thielen missing the majority of last week's contest allowed Conklin to see a season-high 9 targets, which he converted into 7 receptions and 56 yards. He was second on the team in targets, only behind Justin Jefferson, who will likely receive extra attention from Pittsburgh without his WR running mate. Conklin should operate as Minnesota's No. 2 pass-catcher once again, and his upside without Thielen is clear.

3. Chase Claypool - Receptions: Under 3.5 (+102)

Chase Claypool has struggled to rack up receptions in the Steelers' offense. He's posted 3 receptions or fewer in six of his 10 outings so far and been deployed more as a deep threat than underneath outlet for Ben Roethlisberger. The return of Patrick Peterson will boost the Vikings' secondary, which ranks No. 13 in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric. Given his role and performance so far, the plus money on the under is extremely attractive here.
