We’re running it back with day two of the NFL postseason, and what better way to capitalize on the excitement by hitting some more player props? I am backing four different bets in the AFC games, including one on one of the most exciting rookies in football and two on some low receiving totals for Pittsburgh. Here are my favorite prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook.

J.K. Dobbins over 65.5 rushing yards (-112)

The Ravens have the league’s top-ranked rushing offense, and they’re getting set to go up against a Tennessee defense ranked 18th at stopping the run, which gives up over 120 yards per game on the ground. Yes, most of the reason the Ravens’ rushing statistics are off the charts is because of Lamar Jackson — but don’t get it twisted, Dobbins has been a driving force for this offense down the stretch, and helped Jackson’s numbers ever since he became the starter in Week 8. This game should feature some obscene percentage of runs, perhaps even 60%, so I expect Dobbins — who has pretty consistently been on the field for half of the team’s offensive snaps — to be a factor. He’s hit this over in four of his last six games. I’m not worried about Gus Edwards, who played just 26% of snaps last week, stealing touches.

Lamar Jackson over 0.5 interceptions (+118)

Tennessee is 12th in the league with a 2.38% interception rate, and Jackson has thrown three picks in two career playoff games, including two against the Titans last year. He also was intercepted in eight different games this year. Baltimore is going to try something different today to fix its mistakes from last postseason, which I think will mean attempting to throw a little bit more. Jackson has struggled with decision-making this year, and accuracy, so I’ll bet on the ball hawks on Tennessee’s side.

James Washington over 17.5 receiving yards (-112)

Ben Roethlisberger has looked Washington’s way in all but four games this year and is said to trust him just as much as any of his other receivers. Taking a pair of trusty hands to essentially haul in one, maybe two passes is something you’ll find me doing whenever I have the chance. It doesn’t hurt that Washington had his best game of the year — a four-catch, 68-yard outing with a touchdown — against Cleveland this year.

James Conner over 2.5 receptions (-118)

Along the same lines as the last prop, you should see Roethlisberger going for a high volume of passes, short ones to be exact, rather than looking deep downfield. I think Conner should be an integral part of the passing attack today, seeing as he’s had over two receptions seven times, including back-to-back five-catch games to end the season. We know during his time in Pittsburgh, the Steelers have relied on him as a pass-catcher, and I don’t see how Sunday will be any different. I’m just going to back the Steelers’ offense a bunch in this game, because they have perhaps the easiest matchup on the slate.
