Football Betting Action is all about finding the hidden gems on the field. NFL picks are hard to make without a full understanding of the personnel on the field. Understanding the hidden gems on the field makes it easier to pick solid teams on Sunday to grab the underdog win or lucrative parlay. There are a number of hidden gems in the AFC for fans that take the time to look. Many of these players and sets will be overlooked in the NFL until they begin to make an impact or have surprising wins against contending teams.
One of the most overlooked squads in the NFL is the wide-receiving core of the Denver Broncos. It’s easy to understand why no one looks at how good the wide receiving core is for the Broncos, they suffered through the Tim Tebow era last year. It’s an understatement to say these players were underutilized last year. Decker and Thomas both have the potential to be marque impact players in the league. They both have good measurable and good hands as well.
Thomas is an outstanding athlete that can create YAC and plays on his own. It’s also easy to understand why these wide receivers will be overlooked looking forward. Manning outshines everyone on the team, while there are still doubters that cast off any possibility of his resurgence. Acquiring Caldwell and Stokely are significant additions as well. Aside from the Broncos, there are players like Kevin Boss and Aaron Hernandez who are typically underappreciated.
Consider how good the Bills secondary was last year, they were the best defensive back squad the entire first half of the season. The Dolphins sill players like Bush and Ocho-Cinco will also be overlooked this year. Many of these players change or get moved from their marque teams and are quickly forgotten by analysts and fans as they find themselves on subpar teams.
