Week 3 concludes on Monday when the Washington Redskins host the Chicago Bears. Here are the best individual player props for the prime-time clash.

Mitchell Trubisky Over 21.5 completions

Trubisky is under scrutiny for his 348 yards, zero touchdowns, and 65.0 QBR through two weeks, and he hasn't fared well under the bright lights. In six prime-time games, he's posted just 1,002 passing yards, five touchdowns with nine interceptions, and a 63.4 passer rating. That's not good.

If Trubisky can't put up a decent stat line against the Redskins, even on the road, it's officially time for the Bears' front office to worry about the team's future under center.

The Redskins have allowed 582 yards through the air this season while recording only two sacks. Instead of buying low on Trubisky's total yards, I'd recommend taking his completions instead. He's fourth-worst in completed air yards, so don't expect his yardage total to be anything spectacular. But head coach Matt Nagy should be able to build his quarterback's confidence with some quick passes against a Redskins secondary that can't cover a soul.

Case Keenum Over 36.5 pass attempts

Good luck trying to run against the Bears' defense. Following a year when the unit ranked third in rushing yards allowed per attempt (3.7), Chicago has been even better while giving up 3.0 yards through the first two weeks in 2019.

The Redskins will surely trail again in this one, forcing Keenum to keep airing it out. He attempted 44 passes during the team's opener against the Eagles and another 37 last week versus the Cowboys.

Trey Quinn Over 3.5 receptions

Rookie receiver Terry McLaurin has provided a silver lining for Washington during the team's 0-2 start, already recording 10 catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns. He leads Redskins wideouts with 16 targets, though Quinn is only slightly behind at 13.

The second-year pass-catcher has hauled in four receptions in back-to-back games, and he seems to be an ideal option for Case Keenum, who's excelled while targeting intermediate routes this season.

Adrian Peterson Under 13.5 rushing attempts

This falls in line with the Keenum prop. The Redskins won't be successful running the ball against a Chicago front that's significantly better than Washington's offensive line in the trenches.

Peterson has dominated the Bears in the past, but the circumstances are much different now. The Redskins have also given a large workload to Chris Thompson, and wide receiver Stevie Sims Jr. has even received three carries.

Hit the under on this one because of the matchup, and the likely minimal use of Peterson.
