Travis Etienne turned in a highly efficient season in Year 2 after being forced to miss his entire rookie campaign with a Lisfranc sprain.

The dynamic running back rushed for 1,125 yards on 5.1 yards per carry, demonstrating his big-play ability.

The Jaguars will need to lean on Etienne, as they try to run the ball effectively to slow down the game and keep the high-flying Chiefs’ offense off the field.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at Travis Etienne’s player props for the AFC divisional round.

All NFL Divisional Round odds used in these props are current as of Friday, Jan. 20, at noon ET.

Travis Etienne Rush Attempts Prop

Travis Etienne: Over 15.5 Rush Attempts (-145) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Jaguars will need to establish the run early to try to keep the Chiefs’ offense off the field. You don’t want to get into a shootout with Patrick Mahomes, so running the ball would be a good idea.

Once Jacksonville moved on from James Robinson, Etienne handled 61% of the rush attempts in this backfield. That ranked seventh among running backs with at least 100 carries.

This means that we don’t really need to worry about JaMycal Hasty taking away rush attempts, which is good news for the Over on this prop.

Look for Etienne to approach 18 rush attempts in this one, comfortably going Over the number. This one is heavily juiced for good reason.

Travis Etienne Receptions Prop

Travis Etienne: Under 2.5 Receptions (+114) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

I love getting plus-money on this prop because Etienne isn’t really used much in the passing game. Since taking over this backfield in Week 7, he has averaged only 2.45 targets per game.

I prefer targeting the receptions prop because Etienne has big-play ability, averaging nine yards per reception. In other words, he can go over his receiving yards prop in one play.

Etienne’s season-high in receptions is three, so if he gives Over this prop, there’s a good chance that it’ll be by only one catch.
