There is just one more season-long player stats market we have yet to dig into: Interception totals.

We wrap this series with a look at a few season-long cornerback bets to consider, and of all the stats we’ve dug into, this market offered us by far the fewest options, very much focused on the incoming rookie class. Fret not, we’ve got two bets to back.

Quinyon Mitchell under 2.5 interceptions (-150 DraftKings)

Quinyon Mitchell was the first cornerback taken in this year’s draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, and by all accounts, he seems set to grow into one of the league’s better corners.

The issue in 2024 though is that Philly is suddenly flush with corner talent that makes this a crowded room, there is appearing to be no sure thing that Mitchell even starts this season. All reports out of their mini-camp are that corners Isaiah Rodgers (formerly of the Colts who was suspended for a year for gambling) and former Georgia standout CB Kelee Ringo (entering his second season) are legitimate threats to take on CB2 duties* opposite Darius Slay.

That much competition should breed success, but if Mitchell is not even a starting corner this season, his season-long INT market has to favor the under, making this one of our favorite futures to consider investing in.

*While James Bradberry is still on the team’s roster, it’s not likely he is on the team by September, either by trade or via release.
