Season-long fantasy football may be over, but the fun doesn’t have to end. DFS and player props don't stop here as the NFL playoffs continue on.

I’ve been successful on PrizePricks throughout the 2021 season. Now, I am shifting to cover my favorite weekly props from divisional round until the Super Bowl, and there will be a special emphasis on hitting inefficient lines early in the week.

Jumping on early inefficient receiving lines on PrizePicks.com for wide receivers Cedrick Wilson and Tyler Boyd helped me go 10-8 on last week's picks. That’s where an edge can be found, and it’s our job as bettors to hammer the bad lines for as much plus expected value as possible.

For those making the leap from fantasy football to player props, PrizePicks is DFS made easy: Choose two or more players from the board and whether they go over or under their projected fantasy score or single stat. The payout increases with each additional leg, which is similar to a parlay bet.

Best Divisional Round Early Prop Bets

WR JA’MARR CHASE, CINCINNATI BENGALS: OVER 69.5 RECEIVING YARDS

QB JOE BURROW, CINCINNATI BENGALS: OVER 262.5 PASSING YARDS

Ja’Marr Chase could not be stopped in the Bengals' wild-card win over the Las Vegas Raiders despite the Raiders' success with limiting opponents’ explosive passing plays this season. The rookie commanded a 35% target share and went over 110 receiving yards for the third straight game not including Week 18 when the Bengals rested their starters.
