  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/8/17 5:04pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 25 of his 40 passes for 362 yards and four touchdowns in a 38-13 win over the New York Giants Sunday, Jan. 8.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers continued his incredible play, carving up the stout secondary of the Giants. He has 22 touchdowns and no interceptions over his last eight games and deserves to be considered the top fantasy quarterbacks in the divisional round.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 4:57pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) said the shoulder injury he aggravated against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Jan. 8, was initially suffered in Week 16, but he expects to be fine going forward.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi ran for more than 1,200 yards this season and established himself as the feature back in Miami. The offensive line should be healthier in 2017, and Ajayi should be a borderline RB1.

  • Ty Montgomery - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/8/17 4:39pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB/WR Ty Montgomery (knee) had to be carried off the field with an apparent right knee injury against the New York Giants Sunday, Jan. 8.

    Huddle Up: Green Bay's backfield is already decimated, and if Montgomery's injury turns out to be serious, Christine Michael would likely be thrust into the lead back role and have sizeable fantasy upside in the divisional round.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 1/8/17 4:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is under contract through 2018, but head coach Bruce Arians said in his postseason news conference that the team needs to find a successor for Palmer.

    Huddle Up: Even if the Cardinals spend an early pick on a quarterback, Palmer should still be running the show in 2017, and he can be trusted as a quality QB2.

  • Carson Palmer - QB - Arizona Cardinals
    Posted 1/8/17 4:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked fewer than three times, and he threw 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked three times or more.

    Huddle Up: When Palmer is kept upright, he can still sling it with the best of them, but consistency will likely remain an issue. He can be a QB1 when the matchups are right, but he should be drafted as a fantasy backup.

  • Tony Romo - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/8/17 3:54pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is not likely to draw interest from the Denver Broncos in the offseason because of the their offensive line issues and their belief in QB Trevor Siemian and investment in QB Paxton Lynch, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

    Huddle Up: Romo's name is going to be tossed about in a lot of rumors this offseason. If he ends up starting for a decent team, he will have QB1 upside. However, don't count on the fragile veteran carrying your fantasy team.

  • Anquan Boldin - WR - Detroit Lions
    Posted 1/8/17 3:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin said he hasn't discussed his playing future with his family but still has a lot of 'passion' for the game.

    Huddle Up: Boldin finished with 67 catches and eight touchdowns in 2016, and if he does come back for another year, he can be a quality WR4 if he lands in the right offense.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/8/17 3:29pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) won't return against the New York Giants Sunday, Jan. 8, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: If the Packers advance and Nelson remains sidelined, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams would both see a boost in value.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:49pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) said he expects to play in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs next week even though he suffered an ankle injury in the Wild Card playoff game. Roethlisberger was in a walking boot after the game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if Roethlisberger is in any danger of missing the game against the Chiefs. He was already a risky option for owners because of his struggles on the road and should only be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:44pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (rib) left the Wild Card playoff game early because of a rib injury and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Nelson appeared to be in a lot of pain after being hit in the ribs and was carted to the locker room. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if he will be able to return to the game or if he will be able to play next week if the team advances to the Divisional round of the playoffs.

  • Eli Rogers - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:39pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Eli Rogers caught one pass for 19 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Rogers has posted decent numbers over the last few weeks but did not receive a lot a work against Dolphins because the Steelers has a lead for most of the game. He should receive some targets against the Kansas City Chiefs but should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Antonio Brown - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:26pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught five passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Brown posted at least 100 yards for the first time in seven games but continues to find the end zone. He will continue to be the main factor in the passing game and should be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues next week.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:19pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins. He also caught two passes for seven yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bell continues to be one of the best running backs in the NFL and has recorded at least 118 rushing yards in six of his last seven games. He will be facing a tougher defense in the Divisional round of the playoffs but is still a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/8/17 2:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger went 13-for-18 for 197 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger did most of his damage in the first half of the game with two touchdowns in the first quarter but threw two interceptions in the second half. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in the Divisional Round and will be a risky option for owners because he has struggled on the road over the last few seasons.

  • DeVante Parker - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:52pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker caught four passes for 55 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Parker was a bit inconsistent during the regular season but was targeted at least six times in each of the final three games. He probably will be one of the starting receivers for the Dolphins in 2017 and can be considered a No. 4 receiver in fantasy drafts.

  • Kenny Stills - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:44pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Kenny Stills caught five passes for 82 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Stills had a strong finish to his 2016 season with a touchdown in five of his last six regular season games. He should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his team.

  • Jarvis Landry - WR - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:37pm ET

    Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 11 passes for 102 yards in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Landry finished the season with at least 100 yards in three of his final five games and had two of his four touchdowns in the final three regular season game. He will continue to be the Dolphins' top receiver in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:28pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi rushed for 33 yards on 16 carries in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also caught three passes for 12 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi did not have a great playoff game but was still one of the better running back for fantasy owners this season with 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season. He should be the starting running back again next season and should be considered a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

  • Matt Moore - QB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:02pm ET

    Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore went 29-for-36 for 289 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Wild Card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also lost two fumbles during the game.

    Huddle Up: Moore played well as the starting quarterback over the last three games but should be the backup quarterback again next season. Ryan Tannehill will be the starter in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jay Ajayi - RB - Miami Dolphins
    Posted 1/8/17 1:01pm ET

    Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder) left the Wild Card playoff game early after suffering an apparent shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Ajayi may not return to the game because of the score, but owners should look for an update on his status after the game. He will have plenty of time to recover if the Dolphins to not advance in the playoffs. Owners should consider Ajayi as a No. 2 running back in most leagues since he should receive most of the work in 2017.
