So here we are, down to the final four… and no question it’s bitter-sweet. As exciting as the Conference Championship games will be this weekend, it means we only have two Sundays left of football. So, make sure you set your lineup for the NFL Championship Sunday contest and enjoy what little football we have left in the 2020-2021 season!
Travis Kelce – Over 93.5 Receiving Yards (110 PTS)
After a highly productive game against the Cleveland Browns last week, when he accumulated 8 receptions for 109 yards and 1 touchdown, Travis Kelce now faces the Buffalo Bills, whose defense is solid against opposing tight ends. The Bills have only given up 100+ yards to the tight end position once this year (Week 2 – Mike Gesicki). In fact, despite finding the end zone twice, the Bills held Kelce to a mere 65 yards in week 6.
So, why take Kelce over 93.5 receiving yards? In a game with major shootout potential, it is hard to bet against the best tight end in the entire NFL and take the under. Kelce has gone over 93.5 receiving yards in four of his last five games! In addition, despite only giving up 100+ yards one time, the Bills’ defense actually gave up the second most yards (993) to opposing tight ends during the regular season. Obviously this is dependent on Mahomes’ health, but hammer Kelce over 93.5 receiving yards versus the Bills.Embed from Getty Images
Robert Tonyan – Over 4.5 Receptions (115 PTS)
Robert Tonyan has had five or more receptions in only six games this year. However, of those six games, two were losses and one was a one-score game. So, it can be argued that close games are when Tonyan is most involved in the Packers’ offense. Given that the Packers are only 3.0 favorites against the Buccaneers, Sunday’s game should be a nail-biter, which should mean plenty of Robert Tonyan.
If you aren’t sold yet, the Buccaneers’ defense gave up the 7th most receptions (83) to the tight end position during the regular season. With a 115-point payout, roll the dice and take Robert Toynan over 4.5 receptions.
John Brown – Over 53.5 Receiving Yards (100 PTS)
Despite dealing with an ankle injury for most of the season, and ending up on the COVID-19 list, it appears John Brown is finally healthy when it matters most. Last week versus the Ravens, Brown generated 8 receptions for 62 yards. A true deep threat and difference-maker when healthy, Brown will go up against a Chiefs’ secondary that recently gave up 88 yards to Rashard Higgins and 59 yards to David Njoku.
If the Bills hope to keep up with the Chiefs’ elite offense, Josh Allen will likely be forced to utilize all of his weapons. Given that Cole Beasley is currently battling a knee injury, John Brown should be in for a big game on Sunday. With the total of this game currently set at 54.0, both offenses are expected to move the ball and score lots of points! Take John Brown over 53.5 receiving yards.
