  • Paul Richardson - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/14/17 5:32pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson had four catches for a game-high 83 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Richardson flashed some upside during the postseason, but the production came with Tyler Lockett out of action. Richardson is worth a late-round flier in drafts next year, but temper expectations.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/14/17 5:24pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham caught all three of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Graham enjoyed a resurgent 2016 campaign, and he heads into next season as one of the safer TE1 options.

  • Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/14/17 5:18pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin had five catches on nine targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Baldwin capped his year with another trip to the end zone, and he is firmly entrenched as Russell Wilson's go-to target. Draft him as a high-floor WR2 in 2017.

  • Thomas Rawls - RB - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/14/17 5:12pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 11 carries for 34 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Rawls couldn't find running room early, and Seattle had to abandon the ground game after falling behind. He had some big games this year, but unless the Seahawks upgrade their offensive line in the offseason, Rawls will likely be a boom-or-bust RB2 from one game to the next in 2017.

  • Tevin Coleman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 5:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed for a game-high 57 yards on 11 carries and added three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Divisional Round against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Coleman showed his usual elite burst on more than one occasion. He scored out of the backfield on a 14-yard pass near the end of the first half on a well-designed route that got him free in the end zone after the receivers executed a scissors route, leaving him all by himself near the sideline. All Coleman remains behind Freeman in the rotation, he should continue to produce enough to be an effective DFS option in the NFC Championship game next week.

  • Devonta Freeman - RB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 4:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman totaled 125 yards in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks, rushing for 45 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and adding four catches for 80 yards.

    Huddle Up: The rushing line isn't overly impressive, but Freeman did more than enough to make his DFS owners happy, scoring from a yard out in the third quarter. The highlight of his day was a 53-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter that set Atlanta up for a field goal on the drive after his score. Freeman will remain a very smart pick in all playoff formats next week regardless of whether the Falcons face the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers.

  • Matt Ryan - QB - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 4:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-of-37 for 338 yards and three touchdowns in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Ryan took three sacks but was in total control of the Falcons' up-tempo attack otherwise, connecting with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman and Mohamed Sanu for scores. He did nothing to hurt his argument for NFL MVP, while offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was brilliant once again in getting the matchups he wanted. Ryan should have another field day next week if Julio Jones can play, as neither the Dallas Cowboys nor the Green Bay Packers have enough on defense to hold this passing game in check.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/14/17 4:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) left the NFC Divisional Round game against the Seattle Seahawks with a foot injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: It is unclear whether or not Jones aggravated an existing toe sprain or suffered another injury. If his day is over, he will finish with six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Taylor Gabriel, Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy will wrap up the game as the Falcons' top three receivers.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR - Washington Redskins
    Posted 1/14/17 11:58am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he does not want to be called a possession receiver because he can do more than what the Redskins asked him to do in 2016. 'I definitely want people to stop thinking I'm a possession receiver because they gave me a job to do,' Garcon said. 'That doesn't mean I can't go deep and I can't run fast, because I ran fast and went deep this year more than I probably ever did. Every year is different from the playcalling. But I want people to stop thinking that I'm a slow guy, and I'm not slowing down anytime soon.'

    Huddle Up: Garcon will be a free agent this offseason and should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He finished the 2016 season with 79 catches for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. Garcon should have a good chance to be a starter for a team next season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Malcolm Mitchell - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/14/17 6:56am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) has been declared out for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mitchell was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. WRs Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola could see increased snaps in his absence and are worthy of consideration as WR4 options in postseason fantasy leagues.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/13/17 9:45pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he could see himself playing receiver later in his career when the wear and tear of playing running backs starts to take a toll.

    Huddle Up: A move to receiver could end up adding a few years to the end of his career, but for now, Bell is one of the most complete running backs in the game a top-three fantasy option at his position.

  • Zach Ertz - TE - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/13/17 8:20pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz credits his strong finish to the 2016 season to improved chemistry with QB Carson Wentz, and Ertz plans to continue to develop chemistry with Wentz by working with him over the offseason.

    Huddle Up: Ertz hauled in 40 passes for 443 yards over the final five games, showcasing his upside as a pass-catcher. Consistency has been an issue for Ertz, but unless the Eagles dramatically upgrade their receiving corps this offseason, Ertz should continue to provide TE1 numbers as Wentz's safety net.

  • Martavis Bryant - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/13/17 7:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he has taken his year-long suspension seriously because he understands he is out of chances. Bryant said he has trimmed down his friend circle and has put on 10 pounds of muscle.

    Huddle Up: Bryant said all the right things, but it remains to be seen if he can stay out of trouble. His big-play ability gives him tons of upside in Pittsburgh's offense, and he will be worth the risk as a WR4 in 2017 drafts.

  • Tyrod Taylor - QB - Buffalo Bills
    Posted 1/13/17 6:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's future with the franchise has not yet been determined, and head coach Sean McDermott said he will methodically evaluate the quarterback position in the coming weeks.

    Huddle Up: Taylor isn't expected to be back with Buffalo. He can be a QB2 if he ends up starting somewhere, but his fantasy value is up in the air right now.

  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/13/17 3:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Ware received two weeks to rest his injured rib and should receive his normal workload against the Steelers. He will be facing an improved Steelers defense but can be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

  • LeGarrette Blount - RB - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/13/17 3:02pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Blount has been a solid running back for the Patriots this season and found the end zone 18 times during the regular season. Blount likely will receive a lot of carries against the Texans and should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • DeAndre Hopkins - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/13/17 2:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 13, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins will be a big factor in the passing game even though he is dealing with the knee injury. He likely will lead the team in targets during the game and can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Taylor Gabriel - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/13/17 2:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been a contributor for fantasy owners this season and should receive a decent amount of targets during the playoff game this week. Gabriel can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/13/17 2:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be a main target in the team's passing game even though he will be facing a tough Seattle secondary. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE - Seattle Seahawks
    Posted 1/13/17 2:14pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Graham has been targeted four times or fewer in four of his last five games but is still a weapon in Seattle's passing game. He posted 89 yards against the Falcons in the regular season and should be considered a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
