MNF Props: Target DeVante Parker, Cole Kmet in Bears-Patriots Matchup

The Monday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots is ugly.

While the matchup may not seem appetizing on paper, there are a few player props worth exploring because of how low the yardage totals have been set.

DeVante Parker experienced some success in the first three weeks of the season with Mac Jones at quarterback. Jones' return could aid Parker's production inside the New England passing game.

Chicago's passing attack is one giant mess, but there is one player that can find some success on Monday night, even if Justin Fields is under pressure on a constant basis.

The New England passing game is still difficult to figure out because of the abundance of No. 2 and No. 3 type wide receivers.

DeVante Parker has been a top target and a tertiary piece when it comes to the Patriots' aerial attack.

Parker's best game came in Week 3, when he had 156 receiving yards off five catches. He had 10 targets in that contest. That was the last start Mac Jones made. Jones is back for Monday night's game.

Parker likely will not explode for another 100-yard game, but he can haul in a few passes to clear the over on his receiving yard prop.

Parker has been on the field for over 75 percent of the offensive snaps in all but one game this season and he was on the field for 100 percent and 97 percent of the offensive snaps in two of Jones' three starts.

Chicago's defense is just two weeks removed from giving up a season high of 312 passing yards against the Minnesota Vikings, and if Jones can take advantage of that in spurts of the game, Parker and a few others could benefit.

Cole Kmet Over 22.5 Receiving Yards

The game script seems very simple for New England's defense.

The Patriots are going to stack the box to stop David Montgomery and force Justin Fields to beat them.

New England gives up the ninth-fewest rushing yards to running backs in the NFL and it held three of its six opponents under 100 rushing yards.

Fields is not going to have a ton of time to throw if the Patriots pressure him, which leads to Cole Kmet being an important piece inside the Chicago offense.

Kmet has at least three targets in each of his last four games. He caught 10 of his 13 targets in that span and recorded over 40 receiving yards twice.

One of New England's weaknesses on defense has been conceding touchdowns to tight end. The Patriots are one of four teams to allow five or more touchdown passes to tight ends.

It is a risk to take any Bears pass-catcher to score a touchdown, but maybe this is a vulnerability that the Bears can exploit if they get into the red zone.
