  • Eric Ebron aiming for 1,000 yards in 2017
    Eric Ebron said his goal for 2017 is to stay healthy and reach 1,000 receiving yards.

    Advice: Ebron hasn't played all 16 games in a season since being drafted No. 10 overall in 2014. He missed three games this year with knee and ankle injuries and played hurt much of the first half of the season. Ebron still managed to set career-highs in catches (61) and yards (711) while cutting down on his drops. Only two tight ends managed 1,000 yards in 2016. Ebron can become a fantasy asset in 2017 if he stays healthy and gets more involved in the red zone. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 9:20 pm

  • Travis Kelce goes 5-77 in Divisional Round L
    Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 77 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: The Chiefs got Kelce the ball on a couple shovel passes, with one picking up a good chunk of yards but the other being stuffed for a minimal gain inside the 10-yard line. Kelce also had a horrible drop on deep ball down the middle in the third quarter and took out his frustration two plays later with a dumb personal foul penalty to make it 3rd-and-20. At the end of the day, Kelce's stat line was respectable and he had a great individual season, leading all tight ends with 1,125 yards and finishing one catch behind Dennis Pitta's 86 grabs for the position lead. Kelce scored just four touchdowns but clearly became the Chiefs' top pass-game option in his fourth pro season. Kelce is locked up through 2021 and just turned 27. He and Rob Gronkowski are fantasy's top two tight ends. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:14 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.

    Advice: He caught two balls for 14 yards, with one coming on a swing pass in the red zone to help set up Spencer Ware's fourth-quarter touchdown. West made a few spot starts this season in place of an injured Ware, but he didn't top 58 yards rushing in any of the four, finishing the year with 89 carries for 292 yards (3.3 YPC) and one touchdown.

    Jesse James caught 5-of-6 targets for 83 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Advice: With Ladarius Green still out with a concussion, James was one of Ben Roethlisberger's favorite targets. A Chiefs defense that usually smothers tight ends bit on a few deceptive plays from the Steelers, leaving James wide open for a couple big gains down the middle of the field. The 83 yards were James' most in a game this season. Green could be back for next weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm

  • Spencer Ware scores late touchdown in defeat
    Spencer Ware rushed eight times for 35 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.

    Advice: He "added" two catches for one yard and lost a fumble on one of those just before halftime. It didn't end up mattering much. His touchdown run came from one yard out deep in the fourth quarter to pull the score to 18-16, but the Chiefs ultimately failed on the two-point conversion after a penalty. Ware really struggled much of the second half of the season after a Week 8 concussion. Fatigue was probably the biggest reason, as this was his first full season as the No. 1 back. The Chiefs will probably look for someone to compete with Ware next season, if they end up releasing Jamaal Charles, though Charles could later be brought back on a more team-friendly deal.

  • Bell runs for 170 yards in win over Chiefs
    Le'Veon Bell rushed 30 times for 170 yards in the Steelers' 18-16, Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

    Advice: Bell was the Steelers' main source of offense, though they weren't able to score a touchdown all night, settling instead for six Chris Boswell field goals to advance to the AFC Championship game. Bell showed his trademark patience in the backfield and had 101 rushing yards at halftime. He didn't do much in the fourth quarter with the Chiefs dominating time of possession on one of their two touchdown drives. Bell was also swallowed up on his two catches, totaling minus-four yards on five targets. Against New England in Week 7, Bell rushed 21 times for 81 yards and caught 10 balls for an additional 68 yards. He's a virtual lock to total 100 yards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 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.

  • Zeke caps epic rookie season with 125 yds
    Ezekiel Elliott tallied 125 yards on 22 carries and caught his only target for a loss of two yards Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

    Advice: Elliott couldn’t have played much better in his first taste of the postseason. Even with Dallas in catch-up mode for most of the second half (and a good chunk of the first half if we’re being honest), Elliott still made his presence felt. Just as he has all season, Zeke rode the Cowboys’ monster offensive line, shooting through gaps with his signature 4.47 speed. He went berserk in the second half, gashing Green Bay for 81 yards on 12 carries after halftime. The Packers feature one of the league’s better run defenses, but that didn’t faze Zeke in the slightest. He averaged an impressive 141 yards per game in his two meetings with Green Bay this season. Elliott had one of the best rookie seasons of all-time this year and will enter 2017 as a legitimate MVP candidate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:11 pm

  • Cook cruises to 104 yards in win over Dallas
    Jared Cook corralled six-of-11 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Cook struggled in the first half, grabbing just two catches for 20 yards and failing to reel in his lone end-zone target. But Aaron Rodgers never lost faith in his tight end and Cook rewarded him with a second half for the ages. The Cowboys bit on play-action, leaving Cook all alone on his three-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. But Cook’s biggest contribution to this game was a magnificent 36-yard catch with three seconds left in the fourth quarter. Rodgers was falling backwards as he threw a missile down the left sideline that Cook caught to set up Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal. Thanks to Cook’s heroics, the Packers are headed to the NFC Championship for the second time in the last three seasons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:35 pm

  • Montgomery paces GB with 2 TDs in upset win
    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. He’ll be asked to lead the backfield again in next week’s NFC title game in Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:32 pm

  • Packers stun Cowboys in thriller at Jerry's World
    Aaron Rodgers completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding two carries for 16 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: What. A. Game. After a first round full of clunkers and an equally snooze-inducing first two games of the Divisional Round, Dallas and Green Bay finally brought the thunder on Sunday afternoon. Rodgers has been scorching hot for two months and he didn’t let up in Sunday’s stunning upset at Jerry World. He scored the game’s first touchdown on a picture-perfect 34-yard throw to Richard Rodgers and added to his tally with a three-yarder to Jared Cook off play-action early in the second half. Rodgers threw an uncharacteristic interception on a pass intended for Davante Adams, ending a streak of 318 consecutive passes without a pick. But Rodgers saved the best for last, threading the needle to Cook for a 36-yard completion in the closing seconds to set up the game-winning field goal. The Packers will put their eight-game winning streak on the line next week in Atlanta. The winner is headed to Super Bowl XLI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:17 pm

White’s only touch occurred on a third-quarter wheel route, beating Texans ILB Bernardrick McKinney for a 19-yard score.

    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.

  • Ware practicing in full for Divisional Round
    Spencer Ware (ribs) is practicing in full for the Divisional Round.

    Advice: Ware sat out Week 17 as a maintenance maneuver with one eye on the Divisional Round. Ware faded in the second half this season, and the Steelers have stiffened against the run. Nevertheless, Ware will be as defensible as anyone else in a four-game DFS slate.Daily Slant: Ware should remain the feature back against a PIT run defense that was very strong in the second half of the year. Out of the six running backs who had at least 12 carries against them over the past eight games, only one averaged more than 2.7 yards per carry (Isaiah Crowell). The rest of the list, which includes LeSean McCoy (12 carries for 27 yards) and Jay Ajayi (16 carries for 33 yards), were all held to 57 total rushing yards or less. Of course, there isn't a ton of depth at the position in fantasy, but it's a really tough spot to target. Even though Ware is a safe bet for 15-20 touches, it may be worth paying up this week.

  • Jared Cook productive in win over the Giants
    Jared Cook caught 5-of-9 targets for 48 yards in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Giants.

    Advice: Cook was a noticeably bigger part of Green Bay's early-game plan and stayed heavily involved following Jordy Nelson's second-quarter injury. It was still a tale of missed opportunities. The Packers went to Cook twice on their first drive, but a deep shot down the left sideline was covered well by SS Landon Collins. Cook got wide open for a big gain on Green Bay’s final drive of the first half, but he dropped the pass on contact. Cook has now drawn at least eight targets in three of the Packers' last four games. Particularly if Jordy can't go, Cook will continue to be a featured part of Aaron Rodgers' passing game next week in Dallas. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 5:10 pm

  • 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

  • Packers blow out Giants 38-13 in WC Round
    Aaron Rodgers completed 25-of-40 passes for 362 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers' 38-13 Wild Card Round win over the Giants.

    Advice: The Giants’ defense looked poised to dominate Sunday’s game early, holding Green Bay’s offense to -8 net yards early into the second quarter. Even as he lost Jordy Nelson to a second-quarter rib injury, Rodgers battled back to close out the game with five touchdown drives, finding a suddenly reborn Randall Cobb for three of his four TD passes and Davante Adams for the other. The Le’Veon Bell of quarterbacks, Rodgers’ patience and elusiveness inside the pocket were simply too much for the Giants’ inconsistent pass rush, while Rodgers’ arm talent overwhelmed New York’s secondary with laser-like throws. The highlight was a 42-yard Hail Mary touchdown to Cobb, Rodgers’ third Hail Mary score over the past two years. The Packers will visit Dallas in the Divisional Round. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 4:59 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

  • Bell sets Steelers' playoff rushing record
    Le'Veon Bell rushed 29 times for 167 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Dolphins.

    Advice: He added two catches for seven additional yards. Bell was just ridiculous, using his unparalleled patience and vision to break Pittsburgh's postseason rushing record. There was a stretch in the first half where Bell was gaining 6-7 yards on every play. One of the best players in the NFL at any position, Bell will be a Divisional Round X-factor against a Chiefs team he ripped for 178 yards from scrimmage in Week 4. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 1:16 pm

  • Report: Steelers to franchise tag Le'Veon Bell
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers will apply the franchise-tag to contract-year RB Le'Veon Bell.

    Advice: That was always the expected outcome as the Steelers couldn't risk letting Bell test the open market. The franchise tag for running backs should carry about a $12 million value, which will make Bell one of the league's highest-paid backs. Bell has expressed interest in staying with the Steelers long-term and the sides are sure to discuss an extension at some point this offseason. Bell has been suspended for multiple failed drug tests during his Steelers tenure but has otherwise been an absolute stud, earning All-Pro selections in two of his last three seasons.

  • Ladarius Green leads Steelers' inactives
    Steelers declared TE Ladarius Green, LB Anthony Chickillo, CB Justin Gilbert, S Robert Golden, QB Zach Mettenberger, T Brian Mihalik and DE Ricardo Mathews inactive for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Dolphins.

    Advice: It will be Green's third straight absence. He's week to week with a concussion. Expect Jesse James and Xavier Grimble to play bigger roles with Green sidelined. Gilbert didn't show up on the team's final injury report this week and appears to be a healthy scratch. Vince Williams (shoulder) had been listed as questionable but will be available for Sunday's Wild Card matchup. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 8:49 am

  • Ladarius ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game
    Ladarius Green (concussion) is out for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Dolphins.

    Advice: As expected. Green missed practice on Friday and remains in the league's concussion protocol. The ex-Charger has sky-high potential but continues to be hampered by injuries. He suited up for just six games during the regular season. Jesse James will draw the start at tight end and makes for an interesting punt play in DFS. Daily Slant: While James is not normally a great tight end to target, with only two games on Sunday, he’s one of the better plays left at the position. During the regular season, he topped 50 yards once and didn’t score after Week 5. However, without Green in the lineup the past two weeks, James picked up three red zone targets and eight overall. Among the tight ends yet to kickoff, he has the highest touchdown expectation and Miami ranks 21st in TE DVOA (per Football Outsiders). Given the selection, he’s a top tight end option in all formats on the Sunday only slate. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:51 am

  • Ebron drops at least two in Wild Card loss
    Eric Ebron hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 23 yards in the Lions' Wild Card loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: At least two of the missed connections were drops, and he did not record a catch in the second half. It is a fitting end for Ebron, who once again flashed big-time upside as a pass catcher but also missed three games due to injury and disappeared for big stretches when healthy. Ebron did post new career-highs in catches (61) and yards (711), but he found the end zone just twice, and one of those was on the ground. The Lions will have to decide by May 3 whether to pick up Ebron's fifth-year option for 2018, which will cost somewhere north of $8 million due to his top-10 status. Detroit will likely activate the option, but it is not a slam dunk. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:43 pm

  • Will Fuller goes 4-37 in Wild Card victory
    Will Fuller caught 4-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Texans' Wild Card win over the Raiders.

    Advice: Fuller hasn't topped 60 yards since September and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4. He's become a distant No. 4 option on offense behind DeAndre Hopkins, C.J. Fiedorowicz, and Lamar Miller. Fuller's best grab was a 19-yard hookup over the middle on a strike from Brock Osweiler. Fuller has become a mere deep threat for a quarterback who can't throw deep.

  • Sammie Coates not listed on final injury report
    Sammie Coates (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Steelers' final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Dolphins.

    Advice: He's ready to go after putting in a full week of practice. Coates missed Weeks 16 and 17 with a hamstring injury. Coates has been a non-factor for months and won't be an appealing DFS option this week. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 12:12 pm

  • Ladarius Green DNP Friday, still in protocol
    Ladarius Green (concussion, questionable) did not practice Friday.

    Advice: It's a downgrade after Green practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday. Coach Mike Tomlin said on Friday that the team didn't get the results they wanted from Green after Thursday's practice, and he remains in the league's protocol. Green apparently didn't gain clearance from an independent neurologist and probably won't play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 9:52 am
