The Conference Championships kick off on Sunday for a two-game NFL slate on Superdraft.
Below are my top three plays for the slate.
Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals (1.2x Score Multiplier)
We’re going to see a shootout between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs. The oddsmakers have the total set at a whopping 54.5. That means that Joe Burrow is set up perfectly. The Chiefs are last in quarterback hits in the playoffs and tied for last in sacks with the Bengals. On top of all of that, they are allowing the most points to quarterbacks at 22.1 per game. Burrow threw for 244 yards against the Raiders and then threw for 348 yards against the Titans last week. He didn’t have to throw a touchdown last week, but he’ll need to do better than that to beat Kansas City and punch the Bengals’ ticket to the Superbowl.
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals (1.15x)
It’s hard to pass up on Ja’Marr Chase this Sunday. The rookie amassed 14 receptions for 225 receiving yards in his first two playoff games. He has yet to find the endzone but the targets are there for him to do so against the Chiefs. Chase has already shown he can abuse this Chiefs defense. He torched them for 266 yards with three touchdowns in Week 17.
Byron Pringle, WR, Kansas City Chiefs (1.65x)
Byron Pringle has been targeted 7 or more times in four of his past five games. The Bengals defense will look to shut down Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, which may leave more room for opportunities for Pringle. The Cincinnati defense gives up an average of 28.9 fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Given the small slate and Pringle’s 1.65x multiplier, I’m eager to roll the dice here.
