The Seahawks come out of its bye week with a matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, can the Seahawks stay in the thick of the playoff race.
D.K. Metcalf and Ja'Marr Chase are sure to put on fireworks for respective offense in a battle of two of the best wide receivers in the NFL, but could it also be a big game for Kenneth Walker?

Best NFL prop bets for Seahawks vs. Bengals
- D.K. Metcalf OVER 63.5 receiving yards
- Kenneth Walker OVER 67.5 rushing yards
- Ja'Marr Chase OVER 7.5 receptions
D.K. Metcalf OVER 63.5 receiving yards
Metcalf has been explosive this season, with a pair of games that feature 75 yards in an overtime win against the Lions and 112 against the Panthers. He's the deep ball threat in this Seahawks passing game and the Bengals have been vulnerable to big passes, right around the league average in explosive pass defense and EPA/Pass.
Out of a bye week with Geno Smith healthy and ready to go, I expect Metcalf to feature into the offense heavily against a Bengals team that is playing its sixth straight game and traveling back from a road trip against the Cardinals last week.
Kenneth Walker OVER 67.5 rushing yards
While Metcalf can rip off chunk passes, it's Kenneth Walker who has the best matchup on Sunday against a Bengals defense that is bottom 10 in rushing success rate and EPA/Rush on defense.
Walker has at least 17 carries in three straight games and has posted 43 yards, 97 yards and 79 yards in those games. I believe that his stock is way up after the bye week as the Seahawks continue to get healthier on the offensive line will face an outmatched Bengals defensive line.
Ja'Marr Chase OVER 7.5 receptions
Listen, we can't only bet Seahawks props. Let's respect Ja'Marr Chase, who has been on a tear for the Bengals offense. He has at least eight targets in every game this season and has at least 12 catches in two of his last three.
Chase will go up against a Seahawks defense that has the sixth worst mark in terms of dropback success rate this season, so I expect Joe Burrow to look Chase's way often. At a cheap price, I'll happily back Chase to factor into the passing game and grab at least eight balls.
