2021 NFL Week 3 Injury Report: Who’s Hurt And Who Benefits?

  • Odell Beckham Jr. will make his season debut this weekend against the Chicago Bears.
  • Tua Tagovailoa will not play this weekend which leaves his receivers in a bad spot.
  • Carson Wentz is allegedly a true game-time decision, Jonathan Taylor could see a bigger workload.

CLEVELAND – Multiple injuries will have a large impact on not only the game but the other players as well. Certain props may have become much more viable as players are getting ruled out of their game this weekend.

Odell Beckham Jr. Season Debut: Jarvis Landry To IR

Odell Beckham Jr. has missed the first two games of the season as he continues to recover from his torn ACL. However, online sportsbooks may have set his numbers on his return a little low.

Odell Beckham Jr. 100+ Yards and 1 Touchdown

  • Yes +750

Not only is Beckham Jr. back, but Jarvis Landry is not available for the next couple of weeks.

Beckham Jr. now has less competition for targets and could very well hit his special prop for +750 odds.

Beckham has gone for 100+ yards and a touchdown 17 times in his career and could see enough volume to do so once again this weekend against the Chicago Bears.

Tua Tagovailoa Out: Wide Receivers Impacted

The Miami Dolphins will be playing without Tua Tagovailoa which makes Jacoby Brissett the starting quarterback against the Las Vegas Raiders. NFL betting sites don’t have specific player props available yet, but his receivers should struggle.

Brissett completed just 24 of his 40 passes against the Buffalo Bills and threw for 169 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.

Unsurprisingly, both DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle had worse games in Week 2 than in Week 1. When player props become available to the public, look into betting the Under on the Dolphins’ receivers.

Carson Wentz Game Time Decision: Jonathan Taylor Should Benefit

Jonathan Taylor should be the beneficiary of Carson Wentz’s injury whether he ends up playing or not. Wentz currently is battling injuries to both ankles but is allegedly a true game-time decision.

Either way, Taylor should have a bigger workload.

The Indianapolis Colts are undefeated when Taylor receives 20 or more carries and considering their 0-2 start to the season, may look to get Taylor more involved early in the game. Sports betting sites put Taylor’s rushing total at 64 yards. But without Wentz in the game, but it could actually have the opposite effect assuming they are down early.
