Henry Ruggs over 47.5 yards

This is another where all signs point to the over. To start, the past three weeks have seen Henry Ruggs top this number. He has really been a threat recently, and they have been able to get him involved in all areas. Still, with Henry Ruggs and the Chicago Bears it may take just one play to top this amount.

The Bears rank 23rd in explosive passes allowed. Eddie Jackson has been struggling and aside from Jaylon Johnson, they are weak at corner. Ruggs spend 24% of his snaps on the left side, and 46% in the slot, meaning unless Johnson follows Ruggs, 70% of the time Ruggs is not expected to see Johnson.

They can try to lid Ruggs, but that exposes Darren Waller, who is a bigger threat. Keying in on Waller has opened things up for Ruggs, but the reality is that Chicago has seen names such as Van Jefferson, Kaliff Raymond, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and others explode on them. Those are just some of the lesser-known names.

Of course, Kupp, Boyd, Ja’Marr Chase, St. Brown, Tee Higgins, and Odell Beckham all went over 48 yards against Chicago as well. This is not the same pass defense it once was, so expect Ruggs to get open deep.
