The Pittsburgh Steelers are headed out west to take on the Seattle Seahawks in a must-win Week 17 matchup, as both of these teams look to keep their hopes of a wild card spot alive. If there weren’t enough on the line already for you and you’re looking to get even more skin in the game, here are three Steelers-Seahawks player props to consider for Week 17.

Mason Rudolph over 207.5 passing yards (-115)
Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph is set to get his second consecutive start in Week 17, following up a 290 passing yard outing with a matchup against the Seahawks. Though the challenging (and very loud) environment of Lumen Field could give Pittsburgh’s offense some grief, their defense could be without star rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon. After being limited with a hip injury throughout the week, Witherspoon is expected to be a game-time decision, which would mean they’re without their top cornerback option, currently leading the team with 10 pass breakups and a 53.7% completion rate allowed in coverage.
Najee Harris longest rush OVER 13.5 yards (-115)
Patiently sitting behind UDFA Jaylen Warren on the hype train this season has been former first round running back Najee Harris, who’s quietly having an underrated season. Splitting the backfield seems to have done a little something for his efficiency, which has been somewhat of a problem to this point, averaging 4.0 yards per carry for the first time in his three seasons. His explosive plays have been worth nothing, too, having managed a 15+ yard run in nine of 15 games this season and is tied for the 15th-most runs of 10+ yards among running backs this season. Since Week 10, the Seahawks have ranked third in the league in total rushing yards allowed (1,007) while tied for the seventh-most runs of 10+ yards.
Tyler Lockett OVER 54.5 receiving yards (-115)
The Seattle Seahawks might need to lean on veteran wide receiver Tyler Lockett a bit more than usual in Week 17, as teammate D.K. Metcalf landed on the injury report this week with a hip injury. It’s a new injury for Metcalf, having been downgraded to a non-participant in Thursday’s practice from “full” on Wednesday. Lockett has had eight or more targets in three of the past four weeks, and the Steelers will once again have the challenge of being without top safety options Minkah Fitzpatrick, Trenton Thompson and Damontae Kazee.
