Thursday Night Football player props: Rams vs. Saints

The Rams have won four of their last five games, with an overtime loss to the Ravens as their sole defeat in that span. Kyren Williams (ankle) has provided a major spark for their offense since he returned from injured reserve ahead of a Week 12 win in Arizona. The Rams (7-7) hold the final wild card spot in the NFC and have the tiebreaker over the Saints (7-7) based on conference wins.   

The Saints are coming off consecutive home victories over the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants, which followed a three-game losing streak that saw them fall out of first place in the NFC South. The Saints are tied with the Bucs for the division lead but trail on tiebreakers, and they trail the Seattle Seahawks (7-7) and Minnesota Vikings (7-7) on tiebreakers in the wild card race. 

Below, we will take a look at some player props for this matchup. If you are located in a state where Pickem contests are legal, feel free to check out our PrizePicks, and Underdog reviews.
