You can’t deny the Jacksonville Jaguars have played better and been more competitive than they were last year Sure, it would be great to see them win a few more games but progress takes time and they are in the early stages of a rebuild.
If the Jags keep improving (and score more points) this season, the wins will come. On Sunday, they will welcome a San Francisco 49ers team that is coming off a statement win over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football.
There are several Niners players, including swiss-knife Deebo Samuel, that could give the Jaguars a hard time in Week 11 but they’re coming off a short week and will have to travel to Jacksonville. That could in turn give the Jags a slight home-field advantage. Heading into the game, they are a 7-point underdog, per WynnBET. Here are a few enticing player props that may interest you.
Jaguars vs. 49ers: 3 best player props to make for Week 11.
1. James Robinson, first touchdown scorer (+775).
Running back James Robinson is always a good bet to find the end zone when suits up. He’s scored in five of his last six games, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see him do it once again in Week 11 despite the fact that he’s dealing with a heel injury and is listed as questionable for the game.
Robinson wasn’t at full strength last week, appearing in just 59 percent of the team’s offensive snaps. He still ran the ball 12 times for 57 yards and one touchdown and should get a few more carries against the 49ers. He hasn’t had more than 20 this season, so anything above that amount will be a long shot.
2. Laquon Treadwell, anytime scorer (+1,100).
This prop could pay off big time. Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell only had one catch against the Colts but it went for 18 yards. The former first-round pick signed with the Jags in the offseason and hadn’t had much playing time until Week 9.
In the last two games, Treadwell played at least 30 percent of the team’s offensive snaps and should get a similar amount of playing time against the Niners. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him appear in more than a half of Jacksonville’s offensive snaps.
3. Trevor Lawrence, two or more touchdown passes (+150).
This one is a risky one. Trevor Lawrence hasn’t scored more than one touchdown in a game since the season opener. Moreover, he’s had more or less of a drought and hasn’t thrown a touchdown in any of the last two games. Having said that, it may be worth the risk.
Lawrence has had a less-than-stellar statline in recent games but he’s getting better. If anything, the team needs to cut down on penalties and drops. If they can improve in those areas, the rookie passer will benefit. Some, this writer included, are waiting for Lawrence’s breakout game, which could come at any time. The Jags would be thrilled if it’s against San Francisco.
