NFC Championship Game
3:00 PM ET Game
San Francisco @ Philadelphia
Team Totals: Eagles 24.5, 49ers 22
The 49ers trek to Philadelphia winners of 12 straight, quarterbacked by seventh-round rookie Brock Purdy, who visits arguably the league’s most-hostile environment facing the NFL’s most-talented top-to-bottom team. As Purdy has topped 30 pass attempts only once in seven starts and averaged five rushing yards per game, his fantasy outlook ranks No. 4 among conference championship QB participants behind Jalen Hurts, Joe Burrow, and Patrick Mahomes. Only eight teams allowed fewer fantasy points to quarterbacks than Philadelphia this regular season. … Even while Christian McCaffrey is the premier box-score RB bet on Sunday’s two-game slate, CMC’s calf pull is a significant enough concern to hike Elijah Mitchell into aggressive DFS-play territory. Mitchell’s touch totals over San Francisco’s last six games are 19, 9, 9, 5, 11, and 14. The Eagles yielded the league’s ninth-most yards per carry (4.6) this regular season. CMC is an alpha bet on DFS-tournament slates, yet Mitchell can be a difference-making price-adjusted dart throw, especially in the event McCaffrey suffers an in-game calf-strain setback.
