Before getting into Week 2's Detroit Lions prop bets, let's take a look at how Week 1's prop bets did.

QB Jared Goff, Over 35.5 pass attempts (-120, DraftKings Sportsbook): 35 pass attempts
RB Jahmyr Gibbs, Over 31.5 receiving yards (-114, FanDuel Sportsbook): 18 receiving yards
RB David Montgomery, Anytime touchdown (+115, FanDuel Sportsbook, +105, DraftKings Sportbook): 1 rushing touchdown

Goff extended his streak of pass attempts without an interception, and just missed hitting the over on his pass attempts. Gibbs had limited use in his NFL debut, which is lined up to change moving forward, and it stopped him from getting to what seemed to be an entirely reachable receiving yardage prop.

Montgomery saved the week with the game-winning rushing touchdown.

So it's on to Week 2. With the sportsbook for each bet noted, here are our three top Lions prop bets.

Best Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 2 vs. Seahawks

RB Jahmyr Gibbs, Anytime Touchdown (+110, DraftKings, +120, FanDuel)

Gibbs made the most of his touches in Week 1 (60 total yards, six forced missed tackles according to Pro Football Focus), even as Lions' fans and his fantasy owners lamented his lack of usage compared to David Montgomery. He was an attack from the Arrowhead Stadium turf monster away from a different narrative though.

In Week 1, the Seahawks allowed a total of three rushing touchdowns to Rams' running backs Kyren Williams (two) and Cam Akers (one). Apart from any big plays he authors, Gibbs feels like a good bet to score his first NFL touchdown on Sunday.

TE Sam LaPorta, 50-Plus Receiving Yards (+190, DraftKings)

LaPorta delivered an excellent performance in Week 1, including five receptions for 39 yards. More explosiveness after the catch is a nit some may want to pick, but that's a small thing to focus on.

The Seahawks were very generous to tight ends last season, and in Week 1 Rams' tight end Tyler Higbee made the most of his opportunities (three catches for 49 yards on three targets).

LaPorta won't have to do much more than he did in Week 1 to cash a 50-plus receiving yards prop this week, and it's a better matchup. And it's nice plus-money to boot.

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown Over 77.5 Receiving Yards (-115, DraftKings)

St. Brown had a nice season opener, with six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs. He missed last year's game against the Seahawks, and while that may fall down his list of reasons to have a chip on his shoulder it could certainly be something he realizes.

In Week 1, Seattle allowed over 100 yards to two Rams' wide receivers--rookie Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell, who had 298 career receiving yards before that game. St. Brown has surely been salivating at the possibilities upon review of that game tape, knowing what he can do against that Seahawks' secondary.

A little St. Brown prop parlay could be put together here, pairing an anytime touchdown (+120, FanDuel, +100, DraftKings) with the over on 77.5 receiving yards. But we'll just go with the yardage here.
