The Green Bay Packers will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2021 NFC Championship, as veteran QBs Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady go head to head. We’ll take an in-depth look at the slew of prop bets on the table at DraftKings Sportsbook for red zone favorite, Robert Tonyan, including yardage and touchdowns, below.

Receiving yards prop: O/U 34.5 (-112)

The 26-year-old tight end has gone over the 34.5 receiving yard mark in seven games this season. In their first matchup back in Week 6, Tonyan only three receptions (four targets) for 25 receiving yards.

Pick: Over

If the Packers wideouts show up like they did last week then Tonyan might have another quiet 60 receiving yard game. Tonyan isn’t a major yardage tight end like Travis Kelce, George Kittle, or Darren Waller, but he does have a nose for the end zone.

Have more receiving yards than Rob Gronkowski: Yes (-134), No (+108)

This season, Robert Tonyan had 52 receptions for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s also averaging 36.6 receiving yards per game. Rob Gronkowski, on the other hand, had 45 receptions for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. He also averaged 38.9 receiving yards per game.

Pick: Yes

Gronk has not been used a lot in the passing game in Tampa’s first two playoff games. The reason for this is because he’s been used a blocking tight end to help out the offensive line. Meanwhile, Tonyan should be able to produce against a Bucs’ defense that has given up yards this season and will be focused on slowing down Davante Adams.

Touchdown props: Anytime (+150), First/Last (+1100)

This season, Tonyan has been one of Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets outside of All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams. Tonyan had 11 touchdowns, including seven which came inside the redzone.

Pick: Anytime (+150)

If Green Bay finds themselves in the red zone often on Sunday, best believe, Rodgers will be looking towards Tonyan’s way. This season, the Bucs’ defense has allowed nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends. However, Tampa Bay has not allowed a touchdown since Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons.
