A.J. Brown is coming off a quiet game in the Eagles’ blowout win against the Giants in the NFC divisional round. The star wideout put up only three receptions for 22 yards.
The Eagles didn’t really need to get him involved, as they cruised to a 38-7 victory against their division rivals.
That should change this week in a projected close game against the 49ers.
With that in mind, let’s dive right into A.J. Brown props for the NFC Championship Game.

A.J. Brown Receiving Yards Prop
A.J. Brown: Over 69.5 Receiving Yards (-129) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Brown averaged 8.53 targets per game with 17 yards per reception during the season. That means that not only was he a target hog, but he also made big plays.
The Eagles face a 49ers defense that has allowed only 3.3 yards per carry, which ranks No. 1 in the NFL. It’s likely that Philadelphia will need to target San Francisco through the air, making Brown a focal point of the game plan.
The 49ers were much more vulnerable against opposing wideouts, allowing 170.2 yards per game to the position. We’ve seen big games from CeeDee Lamb (10 receptions, 117 yards) and D.K. Metcalf (10 receptions, 136 yards, two touchdowns) against this defense so far in the playoffs.
Brown is a strong bet to go Over his receiving yards prop.

A.J. Brown Touchdown Prop
A.J. Brown: Anytime Touchdown (+140) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Brown is one of the biggest touchdown threats at his position, racking up 11 touchdowns this season. He has only found the end zone once in his last four games. It’s only a matter of time before it happens again.
Why not in this game against the 49ers, who have a defense that must be attacked through the air?
It also helps Brown that Hurts clearly does not have his full mobility right now, due to the injured shoulder. At +140 odds, I love the value on Brown to score a touchdown here.
