  • Jets to cut Brandon Marshall this offseason?
    ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects the team to release Brandon Marshall this offseason.

    Advice: Marshall is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off arguably the worst season of his career. He had a 10-year-low 59 catches for 788 yards, just the second time since 2006 that Marshall was held under 1,000 yards. He also found the end zone just three times after scoring a combined 45 touchdowns the previous four years. Everything can't be blamed on Marshall, however, as the quarterback play was truly atrocious. But Marshall turns 33 in March and is due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million. The Jets are going nowhere fast.

  • Chris Hogan (thigh) says he's 'feeling good'
    Speaking Tuesday, Chris Hogan (thigh) said he was "feeling good."

    Advice: Hogan departed Saturday's Divisional Round smackdown of the Texans. "Feeling good, just had a little minor setback in the game," Hogan said. "But I’m working back every single day and feeling better every day." Hogan will undoubtedly have his practice reps rationed, but he should be out there for the AFC Championship Game.

  • Martavis Bryant applies for reinstatement
    USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports suspended WR Martavis Bryant has applied for reinstatement.

    Advice: Bryant won't be returning for the AFC Championship Game or a potential Super Bowl appearance, but is trying to get his ducks in a row for 2017. Bryant was suspended a minimum of one season last March. As we've seen with Aldon Smith, it's not a guarantee the league will reinstate him simply because he's eligible. Bryant turned 25 last month.

  • Jordy Nelson 'a longshot' to play this week
    ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports Jordy Nelson is "a bit of a longshot to play" in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

    Advice: Demovsky adds Nelson "has a chance to play...but it's only a small chance." The receiver suffered broken ribs in the Wild Card Round, an injury which often requires a full month before a player even thinks about returning. Nelson will certainly give it his all in an effort to get back on the field, but the Packers have not sounded optimistic early in the week. Jared Cook stepped up in a big way with Nelson out against the Cowboys, and he will once again be in a good spot against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 am

  • Seahawks sign Kenny Lawler to future contract
    Seahawks signed WR Kenny Lawler to a reserve/future contract.

    Advice: A seventh-round rookie out of Cal, Lawler made some noise during the offseason program but spent the year on the practice squad. Not blessed with above-average athleticism, Lawler's ceiling is as a possession receiver, and he will need to bulk up to fill that role. He will compete for a spot at the bottom of the roster this summer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:41 pm

    Advice: McCarthy did say Nelson "worked out" on Monday as he attempts to stay in shape while sitting with fractured ribs. We'd consider Nelson a long shot to face the Falcons at this stage of the week, but Nelson could try to gut it out if he feels well by the weekend. The Packers head to the Georgia Dome on Sunday.

  • Tyler Lockett expected to be ready for Week 1
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tyler Lockett (fibula/tibia) should be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season.

    Advice: Lockett's broken fibula and tibia ended his season and may have played role in Seattle's inability to hang offensively with Atlanta in Saturday's Divisional Round loss. For the second straight year, Lockett's offensive role began slowly before taking off down the stretch, prior to his injury. Lockett remains an intriguing Dynasty stash, although Paul Richardson made a big case for extended 2017 snaps. The Seahawks should consider moving on from Jermaine Kearse.

But the Falcons have expressed zero concern about Jones' availability for next Sunday. Expect him to be limited in practice this week before playing next weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:14 am

  • Albert Wilson catches 5-yard TD in defeat
    Albert Wilson caught 2-of-3 targets for three yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Wilson got the scoring started with a five-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter on a play-action rollout by Alex Smith. Wilson's other catch was a failed screen. The Chiefs' No. 4 receiver much of the year, Wilson finishes with 33 catches for 282 yards and three scores. He'll be a restricted free agent. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:33 pm

  • Chris Conley catches two passes in loss
    Chris Conley caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: Conley's biggest grab was a 12-yard catch over the middle on 4th-and-8 in the fourth quarter. Later on the same drive, he took a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from S Sean Davis to draw a 15-yard penalty and help set up Spencer Ware's short touchdown run to make it 18-16, which was the final score. Conley managed to improve on his rookie-year numbers, posting a 46-549 receiving line, but he was held out of the end zone all season. Conley has a mouthwatering blend of size and speed, but it's wasted in this offense that doesn't attack deep. He's still just 24 and remains a Dynasty hold. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:32 pm

  • Tyreek Hill totals 45 yards in loss to PIT
    Tyreek Hill caught 4-of-6 targets for 27 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: He added three carries for 18 yards. The Chiefs tried to get Hill going and needed him to make at least one big play if they were going to win this game. It didn't happen. Hill had a fine rookie year, rushing for 285 yards and three touchdowns while posting a 65-620-6 receiving line. He also scored three touchdowns as a return man, being named a first-team All-Pro there. Hill is electrifying in the open field and can score from anywhere. Still, he might not have a position and is probably someone to sell high on in Dynasty leagues. It'll be hard to repeat this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:26 pm

  • Jeremy Maclin catches two passes in loss
    Jeremy Maclin caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: His biggest catch was a 20-yard grab on the right sideline right at the first-down marker on a 3rd-and-20 play following a Travis Kelce personal foul penalty. It set up a Cairo Santos field goal. Maclin had a really rough second season in Kansas City. He missed four games with a groin injury and never caught more than six passes in a game. He answered a 92-1,140-8 season last year with a meager 46-564-2 campaign in 2016. He took a back seat to Travis Kelce, who became the Chiefs' No. 1 option. And rookie Tyreek Hill was schemed the ball multiple ways, which also played a role in Maclin's down numbers. Maclin turns 29 in May and has three years left on his deal. He's more of a WR3/4 as long as Alex Smith is the quarterback. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:20 pm

  • Eli Rogers catches five balls for 27 yards
    Eli Rogers caught 5-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Advice: Rogers' seven targets were the second-most on the team behind Antonio Brown's 11, but Jesse James out-gained him 83-27 on the same amount of grabs. As the slot man, Rogers does most of his work near the line of scrimmage. He was stopped for a one-yard gain inside the five-yard line on a 3rd-and-2 play in the first quarter, and the Steelers ultimately kicked a field goal on 4th-and-1. Rogers won't be an attractive fantasy play next week at the Patriots. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:11 pm

  • Antonio Brown goes 6-108 on 11 targets in win
    Antonio Brown caught 6-of-11 targets for 108 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Advice: Brown went into the half with a 5-101 line on nine targets. His lone second-half catch came on the Steelers' final pass of the game, converting a third-and-short late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Steelers to drain the clock and take home the two-point win. Brown's longest catch was a total mismatch with OLB Justin Houston trying to cover him one-on-one deep down the left sideline. Brown easily won the matchup and turned it into a 52-yard gain. Brown later had a potential 17-yard touchdown ripped out of his grasps in the end zone when Marcus Peters made a great play to strip it. Brown and the Steelers head to Foxboro next weekend for the AFC Championship game. Brown went 7-106-0 against the Patriots in Week 7. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:48 pm

  • T-Will chips in with 68 yards in loss to GB
    Terrance Williams secured four-of-six targets for 68 yards Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Williams gave the Cowboys a spark by catching a couple deep passes but also committed an inexcusable drop in the first half on a play where he was wide open. Sunday capped a disappointing contract year for the 27-year-old. Even with Dez Bryant injured early in the season, T-Will could only muster 44 catches for a career-low 594 yards and four touchdowns. If he returns to Big D, he’d be no better than the Cowboys’ No. 4 receiving option behind Bryant, Cole Beasley and Jason Witten. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:02 pm

  • Beasley goes 4-45-0 in season-ending loss
    Cole Beasley contributed four catches for 45 yards on six targets Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Beasley didn’t do anything out of the ordinary on Sunday and mostly took a backseat to Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Notably, he was the targeted receiver on Dak Prescott’s only interception of the game. That came on a screen pass early in the third quarter. The 27-year-old had by far his best season in 2016, leading the Cowboys with a career-high 75 catches for 833 yards. With that said, Beasley’s production dipped dramatically in the second half and he won’t be worth drafting as anything more than a late-round flyer in fantasy next summer.

    Advice: Adams nearly scored a touchdown in the second quarter but was forced out at the one-yard line. He rolled his left ankle after a 16-yard catch in the fourth quarter but returned after getting taped up. Adams matched up with Brandon Carr and played him to a draw. The talented third-year wideout has been heavily involved with Jordy Nelson hurt the last two weeks, snagging 13-of-22 targets for 201 yards and one touchdown in that span.

    Advice: Cobb was the hero in last week’s win over the Giants but took on more of a supporting role Sunday as the Packers survived a nail-biter in Dallas. He was still a big part of the Packers’ passing game but was out-targeted by both Jared Cook and Davante Adams. Cobb has a favorable matchup against the Falcons’ secondary next week but could take a backseat to Jordy Nelson, who is tentatively expected to return after missing Sunday’s game with broken ribs.

    Advice: Allison had a big role early in the game as the Packers jumped out to a 21-3 lead in the second quarter but wasn’t targeted after halftime. The undrafted rookie has done enough to stay in the Packers’ rotation but could see his snap count significantly reduced if Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) returns to the lineup next week.

  • Dez Bryant balls out in heartbreaking loss to GB
    Dez Bryant nabbed nine-of-12 targets for a season-high 132 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

    Advice: The Cowboys couldn’t fend off Green Bay in the most dramatic game we’ve seen in ages, but Bryant did everything that was asked of him and then some on Sunday. Dallas looked lethargic out of the gate but Bryant changed the momentum quickly by dusting Ladarius Gunter for a 40-yard touchdown late in the first half. Bryant wasn’t done victimizing Gunter, beating him again for a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dez got off to a relatively slow start this year while battling injuries but finished strong with seven touchdowns over his last eight games.

    Ty Montgomery rushed 11 times for 47 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in six-of-seven targets for 34 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Montgomery didn’t rush for a ton of yards but he made good on both of his goal-line opportunities and kept the chains moving by snagging everything Aaron Rodgers threw at him. He came up huge on the Packers’ final drive with a 17-yard gain off a screen from Rodgers, astutely stepping out of bounds to stop the clock with 30 seconds remaining. Montgomery is never going to be a workhorse in the mold of a Zeke Elliott or Adrian Peterson but his all-purpose role serves the Packers well.

    Advice: Nelson was on the field before Sunday's game against Dallas and has his sights set on playing in the NFC Championship. Of course, that would require the Packers to beat a Dallas team they already lost to once this season. In Jordy's own words, it would also require Nelson "getting back to normal breathing," which sounds like a good goal.

Bryant has since changed his tune and says he's been working out harder than ever before. The 25-year-old has spent most of the last year training in Nevada while helping out as an assistant high school coach. The Steelers could certainly use another receiver to pair with Antonio Brown on the outside.

    Advice: He was on the field for 58.3 percent of the team's snaps, his lowest percentage of the season. Jones re-injured his toe on Saturday but still managed six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. It's a testament to Matt Ryan and the Falcons' explosive offense that they were still able to handily defeat an experienced Seattle team with their best receiver sidelined for nearly half the game.

    Advice: "I told my wife it’s pretty much my last year," said Hester. "The only thing that I left out of this game is walking away without getting a ring. It’s tough." Hester appeared to have plenty left in the tank on Saturday—he racked up 194 return yards on five attempts. But it looks like he's content to call it a career after 11 often electrifying seasons. Hester was never much of a receiver and actually entered the league as a cornerback in 2006. But he will retire as unquestionably the greatest return man in NFL history.

    Will Fuller caught 3-of-6 targets for 16 yards in the Texans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: Brock Osweiler found Fuller for three short receptions early in the game, but he was tackled immediately after all three. Osweiler also overthrew Fuller on a second-quarter end-zone target running an unsuccessful double move at Malcolm Butler. As he is known to do, Fuller dropped a would-be Willie Mays touchdown bomb on a perfect Osweiler throw late in the third quarter. Fuller started his rookie year white hot, but he fizzed out after the first month in a checkdown-oriented passing game.

  • Jordy Nelson ruled out for Divisional Round
    Jordy Nelson (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday night's Divisional Round game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: As expected. Nelson hasn't practiced at all this week and is dealing with multiple rib fractures. He'll be reevaluated next week if the Packers advance to the NFC title game. Geronimo Allison will handle No. 3 receiver duties, and more will be asked of Davante Adams out wide and Randall Cobb inside. Daily Slant: Aaron Rodgers' production suffered last year without Nelson, he averaged 239.6 yards and 1.94 touchdowns per game. Across the 2014 and 2016 seasons, when Nelson played every week, Rodgers threw for 273.8 yards and 2.44 scores. However, Davante Adams improved tremendously this season; he caught 12 touchdowns this year after scoring just once 2015. This should help prevent a similar dip in Rodgers’ production, but it may be worth pivoting to a cheaper option like Matt Ryan, who has a healthy receiving corps and the best offense in the game.

  • Geronimo Allison facing marijuana charges
    Packers WR Geronimo Allison is facing marijuana charges stemming from a September arrest.

    Advice: Arrested in September, Allison was charged in December. He has a court date later this month. It's unclear if any of this is news to the Packers, but it's unlikely. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) banged up, Allison will probably be Green Bay's No. 3 receiver for the Divisional Round. He had a productive final few weeks of the regular season with Randall Cobb sidelined. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:03 pm

  • Report: Jordy Nelson broke 'at least' two ribs
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in Sunday's Wild Card win over the Giants.

    Advice: Per Rapoport, it would take an "incredible effort" for Nelson to suit up Sunday against Dallas. Obviously Green Bay's passing game won't be as dangerous without its top receiver, but the Packers still fared remarkably well on Sunday, hanging nearly 40 points on a solid New York secondary (albeit with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie sidelined for all but two plays). Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will be Green Bay's featured receivers Sunday at Jerry's World with Geronimo Allison also set to take on a bigger role. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:42 pm

  • Pack not ruling out Jordy for Divisional Rd
    Packers coach Mike McCarthy did not rule out the possibility of Jordy Nelson (ribs) playing in the Divisional Round if Nelson is able to practice by Saturday.

    Advice: McCarthy said Nelson would spend the week "with the rehab group" on the side of practice, and that if Jordy can get into practice by Saturday he could play against the Cowboys. McCarthy otherwise offered no details, and didn't even rule out the possibility Nelson is dealing with internal injuries. McCarthy did revealed that Nelson spent Sunday night in the hospital.

  • 'Not optimistic' for Jordy Nelson (ribs)
    According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, things sound "not as optimistic" for Jordy Nelson's (ribs) Divisional Round availability.

    Advice: La Canfora says there's "good news" for Ty Montgomery (ankle), but not so much for Nelson. Jordy was not made available to reporters after Sunday's game, and coach Mike McCarthy said afterwards that he didn't have full information on Nelson's injury. The Packers should be updating Nelson's status sometime soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:17 pm

  • Ty Montgomery left with balky ankle
    The injury that sidelined Ty Montgomery for a portion of Sunday's second half was to Montgomery's ankle.

    Advice: It looked like a severe knee injury when it took place, forcing Montgomery to be carried off by two trainers before he surprisingly reentered on a late fourth-quarter goal-line series. "Why play it safe," Montgomery replied when asked by reporters why he returned. "It's the playoffs." Montgomery should be all systems go for this weekend's Divisional Round clash with Dallas.

  • Rodgers on WR corps: Geronimo will step up
    Aaron Rodgers pointed to Geronimo Allison as the Packers' receiver who will have to step up most if Jordy Nelson (ribs) misses time.

    Advice: "Geronimo has been playing a lot for us and he's been playing effectively," said Rodgers. "... You know Geronimo is going to have to step up and play extended time if Jordy is going to be out." Nelson's status is uncertain for the Divisional Round, but early indications aren't optimistic. An undrafted rookie out of Illinois, Allison will likely take over outside in three-receiver sets across from Davante Adams. Randall Cobb is back healthy in the slot. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 7:32 pm

  • Geronimo Allison draws 2 targets vs. G-Men
    Geronimo Allison caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

    Advice: Allison opened the game in a bit role with Randall Cobb’s return, but the undrafted rookie was forced into action when Jordy Nelson left with a second-quarter rib injury. Aaron Rodgers targeted Allison on a deep shot down the right sideline, but the pass was too far out in front of Allison on his one shot at a big play. If Nelson can't go in Week 19 at Dallas, Allison will reenter three-receiver sets alongside Davante Adams and Cobb. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 5:52 pm

  • Reborn Randall Cobb drops 5-116-3 on G-Men
    Randall Cobb caught 5-of-7 targets for 116 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

    Advice: As Giants slot CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) bowed out early, Aaron Rodgers attacked New York with his slot receiver. Cobb got the start over Geronimo Allison and came through with one of the most incredible plays of the season, securing a 42-yard Hail Mary on the final play of the first half. Cobb’s second score all but iced the game in the third quarter, dusting fill-in slot CB Trevin Wade off the line of scrimmage for a 30-yard strike. Finally, Cobb put the Giants out of their misery with a 16-yard touchdown on a laser from Rodgers in the fourth frame. Cobb's monster game came almost out of thin air. His role lessened in the second half of the season due to ankle and hamstring injuries, and Cobb didn't play in Week 16 or 17. He went catch-less in his last appearance (Week 15).

  • Ty Montgomery exits with knee injury, returns
    Ty Montgomery rushed 11 times for 27 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 41 yards in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

    Advice: Although it was more a case of the Giants’ interior defense blowing the Packers’ offensive line off the ball, Montgomery’s lowlight came when he got stuffed on a fourth-and-one run in the third quarter for a turnover on downs. Montgomery was stymied on the ground, but Aaron Rodgers found him streaking up the seam for a 34-yard gain on a wide receiver route in the fourth quarter. He proceeded to lose a fumble on the very next play and injure his knee, before surprisingly returning for a goal-line series late in the game. Montgomery’s return suggests he’ll be good to go next week at JerryWorld. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 5:09 pm

  • Ty Montgomery leaves with right knee injury
    Ty Montgomery had to be carried off the field with a right knee injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Wild Card clash with the Giants.

    Advice: Montgomery lost a fumble on the play where he was injured, getting twisted backward and falling beneath a pile. He stunningly returned for a fourth-quarter goal-line series, apparently shaking off what looked like a serious injury. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 4:21 pm

  • Eli Rogers has one-catch game in WC round
    Eli Rogers caught his lone target for 19 yards in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: Rogers wasn't a factor, rotating with no-names DeMarcus Ayers, Cobi Hamilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey. He'll be a bottom-dollar, but inadvisable, DFS option for the Divisional Round. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 1:32 pm

  • Antonio clowns 'Fins for 50, 62-yard scores
    Antonio Brown caught 5-of-9 targets for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: Brown's touchdowns, both of which came in the first 10 minutes, went for 50 and 62 yards. The first was a masterpiece of patience, as Brown followed his blocks before finding the sideline. For the second, Brown shed light coverage before ambling by an attempted tackle and exploding to the house. The Steelers are traveling to Kansas City for the Divisional Round. Brown went 4-of-5 for 64/2 against the Chiefs in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 1:16 pm

  • Randall Cobb (ankle) ready to go vs. Giants
    Randall Cobb (ankle) is active for the Packers' Wild Card game against the Giants.

    Advice: Cobb missed the final two games of the season, but will be out there in the slot. He's not an overly appealing DFS option. Geronimo Allison is the No. 4 receiver. Inactive for the Packers are QB Joe Callahan, WR Trevor Davis, CB Quinten Rollins, RB James Starks, OT Kyle Murphy, LB Jayrone Elliott and DT Christian Ringo. Daily Slant: Cobb will have a very tough matchup against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who has a 90.9 Pro Football Focus grade this season. It won’t get much easier for Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, who will have to deal with Janoris Jenkins (88.1) and Eli Apple (71.1). The Giants biggest weakness may be against tight ends, Football Outsiders ranks them 26th in DVOA against the position. If New York's corners can shut down the receivers, Aaron Rodgers may need to rely on Jared Cook quite a bit today. Cook averaged seven targets and 59.3 yards across his last three games.
