Miles Sanders OVER 13.5 rush attempts

Sanders saw just nine carries in Week 3, but that was with Andy Dalton as the team’s starting quarterback. 

In both of Bryce Young’s starts, Sanders has seen 18 and 14 carries. 

Young is back under center in Week 4, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a steady dose of Sanders to help the rookie along. Minnesota has a decent run defense (allowing just 3.8 yards per carry this season), so I’d rather take this prop than any yardage number for Sanders.
