Melvin Gordon Over 11.5 receiving yards (-110)

"The Broncos came into the wek dealing with several injuries to their receiving corps, then No. 1 wideout Courtland Sutton picked up an injury on Friday that leaves him questionable for the game. Teddy Bridgewater is expected to be available, and Gordon recorded at least 17 receiving yards in each of his first three games with Bridgewater playing until the final whistle. He only had 11 yards last week with Bridgewater missing the second half and playing from far behind, but since this is supposed to be a competitive game, with Denver actually slight favorites on the road, I expect Gordon to see his typical workload and cross this number easily."

Najee Harris Under 31.5 receiving yards (-115)

"Harris has had to be a focal point of the passing game by necessity at times, including seeing 19 targets in Week 3. That workload may have artificially boosted the number of this prop, because the Steelers finally have their top three receivers available at the same time. It's clear something has to change with the Pittsburgh offense, and I think they have no choice but to start pushing it down the field. But if they keep dumping it off to Harris at the line of scrimmage, defenses will be ready for it and not let him pile up yardage. That's especially true for the Broncos, who have allowed a league-best 45 receiving yards to running backs all year."

Joe Haden Under 3.5 tackles (+105)

"If Courtland Sutton is unable to play, I'm not sure Haden is going to have the opportunity to get to four tackles, because I can't see the Broncos offense funnelling many passes to their receivers. Sutton had five tackles against the Bills and Packers, two offenses that pass considerably to top wide receivers, but just two against the Bengals as Joe Burrow threw it only 18 times in a win. That's the script I expect Bridgewater and Co. to follow this week with their issues at receiver, and I like getting plus money on this prop as a result."
