Who Will Lead the NFL in Fumbles in 2017?
Of all the NFL props out there this summer, this one is probably the most random and unpredictable of the bunch. Seriously, get some help if you bet on this.
The only book offering this at the moment is Ladbrokes. It wouldn’t surprise me if nowhere else posts this at any point because this will honestly get almost no action.
Last year’s leader, Carson Wentz, tops the odds list at +1000. His seven fumbles were two more than anyone else in the league. The leader in this category has averaged about seven or eight fumbles over the past several years so a repeat of last year’s performance would put him near the top of the leaderboard again this year.
A quarterback has led the league in five of the past seven seasons, but the odds list would suggest that running backs never lead the league. The first RB listed is Adrian Peterson at +6600, 34 spots down on the list. Peterson led the league in 2015 and all the way back in 2008. His hands are great for holding on to switches, but he could use some stickum on the football field.
Think you have a good idea of who will lead the league this year? You’ll almost certainly be wrong!
