  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/15/17 9:56am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (leg) suffered a leg injury during the Divisional round playoff game but said he will be ready for the AFC Championship next week.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been held to 35 yards or less in each of his last four games but entered the playoffs with three touchdowns in his last four regular season games. He has been receiving a consistent number of targets during games but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end at this point.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/15/17 9:16am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is expected to be ready for the NFC Championship game even though he was limited in the Divisional Round playoff game, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Jones may be limited during practice next week but should receive his normal workload in the NFC Championship game. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jason Witten - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 9:11am ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has not caught a touchdown in any of his seven career playoffs games.

    Huddle Up: Witten has posted solid receiving numbers in his previous playoff games and should see a solid amount of targets against the Green Bay Packers. He should be considered a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues even if he does not score a touchdown.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 9:36pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett had one catch for four yards on four targets in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, and he said after the game that he was pressing too hard.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's yardage totals fluctuate, but he is enough of a weapon in the red zone to roll out as a TE1 against most opponents.

  • Michael Floyd - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 9:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd finished with on catch on three targets for nine yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Floyd is probably still learning the playbook, but if Chris Hogan's injury turns out to be serious, Floyd could be in for a big performance in the conference title game.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/14/17 9:24pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler played turnover-free ball in the first half before throwing three interceptions in the second half in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots. He finished 23-of-40 for 198 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Thus ends a wildly inconsistent and mostly disappointing season for Osweiler, who found C.J. Fiedorowicz from 10 yards out for his only score. Despite being only one season into a four-year, $72 million deal, the Texans will need to seriously consider adding another signal-caller in the offseason after spending most of 2016 calling plays out of fear their top quarterback would lose games for them. Osweiler will be far off the fantasy radar in most leagues in 2017.

  • Lamar Miller - RB - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/14/17 9:15pm ET

    Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller ran for 73 yards on 19 carries and added 16 yards receiving on four catches in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: It's about the kind of line we've come to expect this season from Miller, who got exactly what he wanted in terms of workload this season but rarely got much of a chance to show off his explosiveness as defenses typically loaded the box and dared Houston to throw. Miller could emerge as the RB1 he could have been this season in 2017, but the Texans need better quarterbacking and some improvements on the offensive line if that is going to happen.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/14/17 9:12pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 65 yards in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was able to find a better connection with Brock Osweiler late in the season and had nine targets in this one, but 2016 will still go down as a bust for 'Nuk' in large part because Osweiler struggled so much in getting him the ball downfield. This offseason should present a nice buy-low window for patient owners, but those in redraft should probably consider him a WR2 at best until they see significant improvement from Osweiler.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 9:08pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount had eight carries for 31 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: New England is notorious for favoring a certain back based on the matchup, and Blount was the odd man out tonight. He still has plenty of upside because of his touchdown potential, but fantasy owners have to accept occasional duds.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz - TE - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/14/17 9:06pm ET

    Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz finished with three catches for 36 yards and accounted for the his team's only touchdown on a 10-yard throw from Brock Osweiler in the second quarter in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Fiedorowicz emerged as a useful low-end TE1 this season, in part due to Osweiler's on-and-off ability/willingness to throw the ball downfield. Assuming things stay mostly the same in Houston this offseason, Fiedorowicz should be approached as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 this summer in redraft leagues.

  • Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 9:03pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with eight catches on 13 targets for 137 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has now been targeted at least 11 times in seven of his last eight games, and he has topped 70 yards in every game during that span. He has one of the safest floors of any receiver.

  • Tom Brady - QB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 8:55pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 18 of his 38 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Brady threw just two interceptions in the regular season, but facing the tough Houston defense, he doubled his total. Even in a poor performance by his standards, he finished with a decent line, showcasing his high floor.

  • Dion Lewis - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 8:46pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 13 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, becoming the first player in postseason history to have a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in the same game.

    Huddle Up: Lewis didn't have a touchdown during the regular season, but now that he is healthy, his versatility and upside are on full display.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 1/14/17 8:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald hasn't committed to playing in 2017, and head coach Bruce Arians said he won't try to convince Fitzgerald to return because the decision to play should be his call.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 catches this season, so there is no question he can still produce. If he returns, he is a WR2 candidate with added value in PPR formats.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 7:35pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) exited against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, with a thigh injury and is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: If Hogan can't return, Michael Floyd should see a bump in action as the No. 2 receiver option behind Julian Edelman.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/14/17 7:07pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) said he has no doubt he will be ready for the 2017 season, and he has an offseason training program in place designed to help him become more explosive and agile.

    Huddle Up: Lacy will be a free agent, and his fantasy value will hinge on where he signs. If he ends up back in Green Bay, he will have RB1 upside.

  • Nelson Agholor - WR - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/14/17 6:58pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor dropped six of his 66 targets this season, and his drop rate of 9.1 percent was the third worst in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Agholor was a first-round pick, so the Eagles will give him every chance to succeed. However, the chances of him turning things around seem slim, and he is nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket heading into 2017.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four of his six targets for 71 yards in a 36-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Atlanta's offense, but Gabriel's ability to turn a few catches into a bunch of yards has made him a quality fantasy starter.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 5:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones' (foot) foot injury is not a cause for concern, according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said Jones could have returned against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan 14, if needed.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Jones should be just fine for the conference title game, and he is one of the most valuable fantasy assets at any position when he is on the field.

  • Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/14/17 5:44pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 17 of his 30 pass attempts for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran six times for 49 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Injuries and a leaky offensive line hampered Wilson for much of the year, but he still has a high ceiling thanks to his running ability. If you can grab him at a discounted price, don't hesitate to draft him as your QB1 in 2017.
