Here's three of the best prop bets for this Sunday night showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Vikings vs Packers Prop Bets

1. A.J. Dillon - Rushing Yards: Under 53.5 (-110)

This seems like an ambitious yardage total for A.J. Dillon. His role has fallen off as of late, seeing just 16 rushing attempts over the past two games, and his combined 64 yards on the ground during that span is far from impressive. Dillon also saw his snap rate drop below 50% in both Week 15 and 16 as Aaron Jones regains his form following a knee injury. Dillon managed 53 yards against Minnesota in his lone start of the season, so it's hard to see him hitting this over with Jones taking over in the backfield once again.

2. Justin Jefferson - Receiving Yards: Over 72.5 (-110)

Justin Jefferson should be a busy man on Sunday night. Jefferson had a quiet first half in Week 16 before being leaned upon in his team's comeback effort, finishing with 8 receptions and 116 yards on 12 targets. That was the sixth time Jefferson posted 73 or more yards in the past seven games alone. The Vikings are expected to play catch-up in this one as 13-point underdogs, which could mean adopting a pass-heavy attack to keep up with Green Bay. The absence of Adam Thielen could mean backup Sean Mannion depends on Jefferson to move the ball.

3. Aaron Jones - Rushing Yards: Over 55.5 (-110)

Aaron Jones appears to have finally put his knee injury behind him. After two games of working himself back up to his normal load, Jones has handled 25 rushing attempts over the past two games. He's also rushed for at least 58 yards in both of those contests, thanks to a healthy average of 4.96 yards per carry. Jones should wreak havoc on a Minnesota defense that's giving up the fifth-most rushing yards per game (130.5) this season. Jones has the potential to see plenty of work on the ground in a game where the Packers are expected to rack up a big lead early.
