  • Derek Carr - QB - Oakland Raiders
    Posted 1/20/17 7:43am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will have discussions on a contract extension this offseason, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. Carr will be in the final year of his contract in 2017, and there is no fifth-year option on him.

    Huddle Up: Carr's numbers this season are pretty close to his sophomore season in 2015, but the exception is that he cut his interceptions in half. His completion percentage was up a tick to 63.8%. He'll be a midrange QB1 option in fantasy drafts.

  • Chris Hogan - WR - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/19/17 6:51pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Hogan has already said he would play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 22, so this is likely a precaution. Hogan is a darkhorse for catching passes, having nabbed all of his four targets in the postseason for 95 yards.

  • Martellus Bennett - TE - New England Patriots
    Posted 1/19/17 6:41pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited in practice on Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Barring a huge setback, Bennett should be on the sidelines and ready to go for the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 22. If you have Bennett in a lineup, go ahead and start him.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 4:36pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: This type of activity means he's trending towards playing on Sunday, but it's still unknown how close to 100 percent health Nelson actually is. That being said, he looks like a very risky option right now for DFS lineups and his situation should be monitored closely up until kickoff.

  • Mason Crosby - PK - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 4:32pm ET

    Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby (illness) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Rarely do kickers get their own individual updates, but after his heroics in the Divisional Round to help propel the Pack out of Dallas with a win, he certainly warrants the attention. Plus, Crosby has a nice matchup on tap in Atlanta, being indoors and kicking in a game that will feature plenty of points. He might be the top kicker to deploy this weekend.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 4:26pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Despite this news, Adams is expected to suit up on Sunday and he'll be a fine WR2 option to lean on against the Falcons, especially if Jordy Nelson (ribs) remains sidelined. Through the first two postseason contests, Adams has been on a tear, hauling in 13 of 22 targets for 201 yards and a touchdown.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 4:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) sat out practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: This isn't too surprising, considering head coach Mike McCarthy said Allison might not practice until the day before the game. He'll be out there on Sunday and offer solid upside as a WR3/FLEX option for DFS owners, especially if Jordy Nelson misses another contest.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/19/17 12:12pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (personal) was excused from practice Thursday, Jan. 19, because of personal reasons. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Bell will be able to play in the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Bell has rushed for at least 100 yards in seven of the last eight games and will see plenty of work against the New England Patriots. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Melvin Gordon - RB - San Diego Chargers
    Posted 1/19/17 11:51am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon said he is happy that the team hired head coach Anthony Lynn because of Lynn's success as a running backs coach for many years. 'He obviously knows the game, so if he sees some wrinkles, I've got another set of eyes. Everyone's got some holes in their game, and he'll bring some wisdom to help get my game right when I need it. I've got someone who has been around the game for so long and coached some of the league's best players. He'll know how to help me. He's perfect for me, so I'm excited to get this thing rolling under him,' Gordon said.

    Huddle Up: Gordon rushed for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016 and likely will receive most of the carries next season if he is healthy. Owners could see some improvement from Gordon under his new head coach and should consider him a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in fantasy drafts.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 10:51am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) may not practice until Saturday, Jan. 21, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Allison is expected to play in the NFC Championship game but is sitting out practice so he can rest his injured hamstring. He has had a solid role in the passing game over the last few weeks and could see more targets if Jordy Nelson misses another game. Owners should consider him a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is active.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 10:38am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) will be on the field with the rehab group during practice Thursday, Jan. 19, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Nelson probably will be listed as limited on the injury report but is still a question mark for the NFC Championship game. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days to see if he makes any progress. He will be a risky option for owners and may only be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in leagues.

  • Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
    Posted 1/19/17 10:17am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, but said he will be ready for the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Jones recorded 67 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional round game and should see plenty of targets against the Green Bay Packers this week. Jones is a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues even though he is dealing with the toe injury.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/19/17 9:37am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the New York Giants if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Giants have used multiple running backs over the last few years and may be interested in Peterson as their main back. Peterson should receive most of the carries wherever he goes and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/19/17 9:31am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers may be looking for a running back this offseason with Doug Martin serving a suspension and Jacquizz Rodgers scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. Peterson probably will be the starter if he joins the Bucs and could be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB - Minnesota Vikings
    Posted 1/19/17 9:24am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Houston Texans if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Texans signed Lamar Miller to a lucrative contract last offseason, so they probably would not consider adding Peterson. Miller rushed for 1,073 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 and can be a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners. Peterson should be able to find a starting job with a team and could be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

  • Marcus Mariota - QB - Tennessee Titans
    Posted 1/19/17 9:11am ET

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (leg) recently met with a doctor and is on track in his recovery from a broken fibula. Head coach Mike Mularkey said he is not sure when Mariota will be able to practice but expects him to be ready for the start of the season.

    Huddle Up: Mariota probably will miss some of the offseason workouts but likely will be ready for training camp. He posted solid numbers this season and could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback next season.

  • Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts
    Posted 1/19/17 8:24am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will begin throwing in three months, and he'll be ready to return fully in six months.

    Huddle Up: Luck will be ready right around the start of training camp, and it shouldn't hinder his prospects for the 2017 season. His 2016 was on par, but just below, his big 2014 season. We're still awaiting that full blossom from him, and he'll be in the mix of second-tier QBs in fantasy drafts.

  • Geronimo Allison - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 7:35am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22.

    Huddle Up: Allison had three catches for 46 yards against the Dallas Cowboys last week. His upside will be limited if Jordy Nelson (ribs) returns, but he's a flex option against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 7:27am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22.

    Huddle Up: Adams had 12 catches for 74 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. He has a 23-276-4 line the last four games in what has been a breakout year. He's a sneaky WR2 whether Jordy Nelson (ribs) is back or not.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/19/17 7:22am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams had 12 catches for 74 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Atlanta bent a little bit against the Seattle Seahawks last week with a 10-171-1 line against WRs. Adams has a 23-276-4 line the last four games, but he is battling an ankle issue. He's a sneaky WR2 whether Jordy Nelson (ribs) is back or not.
