Week 3 NFL Weekly Specials: Best Long Shot Bets & Odds

Sportsbooks post their sides and totals first every week and then add player props and game specials, but some of the most enjoyable markets to dig into and mine for value are the exotic "Weekly Specials" or "Sunday Specials," where you get a chance to pick longshot props in a wider field. Longshots like 'Which running back will lead the NFL in Rushing yards on Sunday?' or 'Which team will score the fewest points?' might seem like random gambles, but, in reality, they can be some of the best pure value bets on the weekend.

Most intriguing for me this weekend are the Most Receiving Yards - Sunday Only markets on DraftKings and FanDuel. There are several players priced aggressively by both books who are unlikely to play or have their starting quarterbacks in play (Chris Godwin, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen) leaving healthy value on some guys priced below them. Below is how I am attacking the slate.
