The NFL season rolls on with 15 more games set for action in Week 8. Marquee matchups include an NFC battle between the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks as well as a Sunday Night Football meeting between the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills. Anticipation in growing by the second.

Bettors looking to get in on the action don't have to stick to only backing spreads and point totals, either. Prop bets can be exciting given they have the capability of cashing no matter what the score may be. Here's a look at three NFL prop bets you need to make for Sunday on FanDuel Sportsbook.

NFL Week 8 Prop Bets

1. AJ Brown - Receiving Yards: Over 70.5 (-110)

After an underwhelming 2021 season, AJ Brown has wasted no time proving to everyone that he is still one of the best wide receivers in the game in 2022. The Philly star is averaging a career-high 83.8 receiving yards per game and has posted at least 67 yards in five of his six games played. That consistency should come in handy against a Pittsburgh defense that is allowing 275.4 passing yards per game (No. 29 in NFL). The Steelers have also given up the second-most yards to opposing WRs (1,467). In Week 7, both Tyreek Hill (72 yards) and Jaylen Waddle (88 yards) picked apart this defense with crisp routes and game-changing speed. Look for Brown to find similar success on Sunday.

2. Derrick Henry - Rushing + Receiving Yards: Over 115.5 (-114)

It's hard to find a reason not to back Derrick Henry to have a massive day in Week 8. Over his last three games against Houston, Henry has logged a ridiculous 725 total yards and 7 touchdowns. He tallied at least 116 yards from scrimmage in each of those games and now has a rookie quarterback in Malik Willis starting alongside him. Willis is making the first NFL start of his career, which makes the possibility of head coach Mike Vrabel leaning on Henry that much more likely. Henry has seen at least 30 touches in each of the last two weeks and now gets to face a team that has posted the worst rush defense DVOA rating in the NFL.

3. Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Raheem Mostert (-130)

Raheem Mostert has established himself as the clear-cut No. 1 RB in Miami. He has played in at least 62% of the offensive snaps and seen at least 15 touches in each of the Dolphins' last four games. More importantly, he has tallied 8 red zone touches during that same span. His workload is growing and now he gets to face a Detroit defense that is giving up 5.3 yards per carry (No. 30 in NFL). The Lions have also allowed the most rushing touchdowns to opposing RBs in 2022 (10). Mostert could cash this bet in a number of ways. A long touchdown run, a punch-in from a few yards out or a receiving score are all on the table.
