The Dallas Cowboys will look to build off their win a couple of weeks against the Chargers as they return home to play the Los Angeles Rams.
This game has a ton of star power on both teams, so it’s only right that we look at a few player props that bettors should watch out for. I have two Cowboys props that I love this week, including a special teams prop that has excellent value.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Rams vs. Cowboys in Week 8
- Darrell Henderson OVER 43.5 rushing yards
- Ceedee Lamb OVER 64.5 receiving yards
- Brandon Aubrey OVER 1.5 field goals made
Darrell Henderson OVER 43.5 rushing yards
The 26-year-old running back came in last week and grabbed the bull by the horns on the RB1 role for the Rams.
There was some uncertainty on who would start in last week’s game against the Steelers, but head coach Sean McVay leaned on Henderson, who has spent 50 games with the team. The young running back had 61 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and played 57 percent of the offensive snaps.
I like Henderson to hit this number against a Dallas defense that is ranked in the middle of the pack in stopping the run (111.7 yards per game) and allows 4.2 yards per carry. If the Rams want to keep Matthew Stafford upright against the physical Dallas front seven, they need to have success on the ground.
CeeDee Lamb OVER 64.5 receiving yards
The star wide receiver has started the regular season off slow, with 34 receptions (42 targets) for 475 yards and a touchdown. CeeDee Lamb is going up against a Rams’ defense that is ranked 12th in DVOA-WR1 this season, per ftnfantasy.com.
Los Angeles also allows 71.7 receiving yards per game to opposing WR1s this season. The 24-year-old wide receiver has only gone OVER 64.5 receiving yards in three out of six games. But Lamb is coming off a good game two weeks ago against the Chargers, where he had seven receptions (seven targets) for 117 yards.
Brandon Aubrey OVER 1.5 field goals made
Most of the time, field goal props go under the radar as bettors’ focus is on who will score a touchdown or have 100 receiving yards in a game. However, Aubrey has been one of the best kickers in the league, going 16-for-16 on field goals this season.
The former USFL standout has gone over 1.5 field goals made in five out of six games this season. He will have multiple opportunities to add to his field goal total on Sunday as the Rams allow 2.7 field goal attempts (27th in the NFL) and 2.3 field goals made per game (25th in the NFL).
