DraftKings Playoff Specials: Best NFL Player Props Bet
Most Rushing Yards: Christian McCaffrey (RB, San Francisco 49ers) | +450
With rookie signal-caller Brock Purdy now under center, San Francisco will need to run the ball if they want to make a deep playoff run. The 49ers averaged 138 rushing yards per game in their two playoff wins last year. In their lone loss in the NFC Championship? Just 50 yards.
In his 11 games as a 49er, Christian McCaffrey is averaging 67.8 rushing yards per game. The Seahawks have been a top-five matchup for RBs this season. Possible second-round opponent Minnesota has also been a plus matchup for the position.
