NFL Divisional Round Underdog Fantasy Player Props: Should You Trust Christian Kirk, Ezekiel Elliott?

Super Wildcard Weekend is in the books, with six teams moving on and another six getting a head-start on the offseason. We saw a 27-point comeback by the sneaky-good Jaguars, a Giants victory reminiscent of their two Super Bowl runs, and dominant showings by the Cowboys and 49ers. There are still eight teams left to pick from with player props and win some extra money, aside from who books their ticket to the Conference Championships.

Here are five player props to win some cash this weekend on Underdog Fantasy.

CHRISTIAN KIRK: OVER 5.5 RECEPTIONS

When the pressure has turned up this season, so has Christian Kirk. Just last week against the Chargers, Trevor Lawrence targeted Kirk 14 times. In the division title game against Tennessee, he had six receptions; the last time they played Kansas City, he had nine catches on 12 targets. The point is, Christian Kirk is there for this Jacksonville offense in big moments. And with four interceptions last game, the focus this week should really be on scheming up easy passes for Lawrence to begin this game. Take the over.

JALEN HURTS: OVER 0.5 RUSHING TOUCHDOWNS

Rushing touchdowns have come easy to Jalen Hurts this season. His legs have gotten him into the endzone 13 times this year, a number only topped by Jamaal Williams. In the last four games Hurts has played, he’s found the endzone on the ground in three of them. While one-or-none bets can sometimes be risky, Hurts is a near guarantee to score on the goal line. Even from further out, the Giants love to blitz, which should push Hurts out of the pocket and potentially into the endzone.

DEVIN SINGLETARY: OVER 40.5 RUSHING YARDS

In all honesty, this Buffalo rushing attack has not been the highlight of its offense. With that being said, the line on Devin Singletary is relatively low. He has been over 40.5 yards in seven of his last 10, with the majority of those being one-score games. This Bills-Bengals game is brewing to be another tight one and Buffalo leans on their run more than you would think when the game is close. It may be a good play to pair this with James Cook under 39.5 yards, as he hasn’t been nearly as consistent to deserve a line a mere yard under Singletary’s.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT: OVER 35.5 RUSHING YARDS

Over his last ten games, Ezekiel Elliott is averaging 15 carries. One of the most important things to keep in mind in sports betting is volume. Touchdowns are inconsistent and yards do not tell the whole story, but touches are the best predictor of future output. In order to grab this many carries and not break 35.5 yards would be a large letdown. Especially in a playoff game, where experience is key. Look for Zeke to eat just enough against a tough 49ers defense.

BROCK PURDY: UNDER 251.5 TOTAL YARDS

No matter how this season finishes, Brock Purdy’s run has been something to remember. The most impressive part, though, has been his 16 touchdown passes, not necessarily his yards. No doubt he has been balling out, but he has only hit this number twice since taking over. Additionally, he has been essentially a non-factor in the rushing game, so his total yards seem like an even better bet than purely passing. This Cowboys’ pass defense is top 10 as well, which should limit Mr. Irrelevant’s impact.
