The Divisional Round of the 2021-22 NFL Playoffs is here, bringing us four entertaining matchups this weekend. The AFC side of things features a showdown between the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans, as well as the Buffalo Bills facing the Kansas City Chiefs.

Meanwhile, the NFC side of the bracket includes the Green Bay Packers hosting the San Francisco 49ers, plus a Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers collision.

But there are plenty of other ways to add excitement to this weekend's games. Here are three of the best Divisional Round player prop bets, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

NFL Playoffs Divisional Round Player Props

1. Joe Burrow - Passing Yards: Over 278.5 (-114)

Joe Burrow has been on fire lately, throwing for 1,215 passing yards in his last three games alone. While the Titans do have one of the top defenses in the NFL, they're susceptible to aerial attacks — proven by them giving up almost 300 passing yards to the lowly Houston Texans in their last game. Meanwhile, Burrow has hit the over on this prop four times in his last six games. Few teams are as hot as the Bengals and they'll look to start the Divisional Round with a bang. That would involve Burrow being at the top of his game, so be prepared for another big performance by the Cincinnati gunslinger.

2. Travis Kelce - Touchdown Score (-120)

Travis Kelce continued being a touchdown machine in his ninth NFL season, reaching the end zone nine times in 2021. Even though the Bills surrendered only three touchdowns to tight ends this season, one of them was scored by Kelce in Week 5. He's also had success against Buffalo throughout his career, tallying six TDs in seven meetings (six regular season plus one playoff matchup). With a touchdown in each of his last four outings this year, Kelce is a safe bet to hit paydirt once again.

3. Aaron Rodgers - Passing Yards: Over 265.5 (-114)

Aaron Rodgers enters this week's Divisional Round with an 0-3 playoff record against the 49ers. He'll be a man on a mission to change that, which could involve hitting the over on this prop. He's finished with at least 266 passing yards in five of his last seven games this season and was only 13 yards away from doing so when the two teams met in Week 3. With a week of rest under his belt, Rodgers will be more dangerous than over and will do everything he can to get the Packers back to the NFC Championship Game. Unless something unexpected happens, prepare for vintage Rodgers this weekend.
