The NFL has four teams remaining in the NFL playoffs. Player prop bets become harder to find. It’s time to dig deep at the best betting sites. Here are the NFL Championship Round Player Props.
The uncertainty involving player injuries and teams resting players plays into that quite a bit. It’s also still only Thursday as I write this, so there is still plenty of time for even more week 17 NFL player props to emerge. As things stand prior to the New Year arriving, the week 17 NFL player props above are my favorites.

To start off Championship weekend, we’ll get to watch Tom Brady face off against Aaron Rodgers. We’ve got two of the greatest to ever do it facing off for a chance at a Super Bowl.
The weather clearly favors the Packers, as there will be potential snow showers throughout the day along with an 8 miles per hour wind.
A Tampa Bay team is taking the trip to Green Bay. It’s football, and these guys will be prepared, but the edge strictly stays with Green Bay as they’ll have the field advantage. Sure, Tom Brady has played in New England in the cold, but plenty of the other guys are not used to Green Bay type weather.
Without Tampa’s defense, the Buccaneers wouldn’t be sitting comfortably right now. Sure, Brady threw two touchdowns, but he also went 18 of 33 for 199 yards passing. Maybe he’s getting a little more credit than he deserves.
The Packers will rely on Jaire Alexander, along with the rest of the secondary, to keep the passing game in check. How to win the casino. Alexander has become a massive strength for this defense.
In a close and snowy game, Brady will struggle to complete passes, and the run game might do extra work with Ronald Jones back in the mix. They’ll have fresh legs that they can rely on.
Tom Brady under 24.5 completions has missed in four of his last six games where the weather wasn’t nearly this bad. The Packers might lead late, causing Brady to have to throw more. But at that point, if the Bucs are losing, it means he’s been struggling getting completions in the first place. I would also take a look at under 286.5 passing yards for Brady.

At this point, we have no idea if Patrick Mahomes is playing or not. I’d love to look at Kansas City Chiefs' props, but I’m not going to do until I know who the quarterback is. On the other side of things, the Buffalo Bills are healthy and have had some fantastic receiving out of Stefon Diggs, who has now hit over 100 yards in back-to-back playoff games against solid secondaries like the Colts and Ravens.
Diggs, in those two games, has been targeted by Josh Allen 20 times and has caught 14 passes for 234 yards. He’s averaging over 16 yards per catch, and he has a touchdown in each game of the year.
This isn’t just a playoff thing either. Diggs has now hit over 100 yards receiving in five of his last six games. He’s stepping up on the big stage when he’s needed the most. The one time he didn’t get over 100 yards was the game against the Dolphins in Week 17, where they won 56-26. He still had seven catches and eight targets.
Even if Chad Henne starts for the Chiefs, I still expect a high scoring game between two very high powered offenses. Diggs will be in the mix, and he’s someone that Allen has trusted all season long.
Diggs also has six touchdowns in his last six games and is going up against a Chiefs defense that has not been terrific in the secondary.
We’ll most likely see Charvarius Ward on Diggs, who has allowed .91 yards after catch and a 57 percent completion percentage. Diggs should have a day against the Chiefs with over 100 yards along with a touchdown.
