  • Spencer Ware - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/15/17 10:01pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware ran eight times for 35 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Ware's low output was the result of Pittsburgh's stifling run defense, which forced Alex Smith to have to throw more. There was some success on both the running and passing game, but Ware will likely go back into a reduced role next year with Jamaal Charles likely returning. He might make a good handcuff pick, however.

  • Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
    Posted 1/15/17 9:38pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 20 of 34 for 172 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to tell whether Smith was hampered by the Steelers' solid defense or by the weather conditions, but Kansas City's offense had one passing touchdown and one rushing score. Smith has some limitations that make him no better than a QB2 in most drafts entering 2017, but it could be much worse for the Chiefs.

  • Ben Roethlisberger - QB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/15/17 9:36pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception and was 20 of 31 for 224 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Roethlisberger ranks as a QB2 mostly because of his injury history, but he will get a shot at elite status again when he faces the New England Patriots in next week's AFC championship game. Roethlisberger wasn't playing earlier this season when Pittsburgh lost to New England in the regular season.

  • Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
    Posted 1/15/17 9:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards, with no touchdowns, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Yardage leagues would have gained many points from Bell's performance, but don't let that discourage you from including Bell among RB1 or RB2 selections for next season. Assuming Bell keeps his nose clean and stays away from substances, he should be setting himself up well for a good payday and a strong 2017.

  • Brock Osweiler - QB - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/15/17 7:14pm ET

    Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler said he is disappointed he was unable to capitalize on the opportunities that presented themselves in the AFC Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Despite signing a big deal to join the Texans, Osweiler is no lock to start in 2017 after a terrible season. Even if he does start, he doesn't need to be drafted.

  • Carson Wentz - QB - Philadelphia Eagles
    Posted 1/15/17 6:54pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz said he is going to take some time off to rest his body, especially his arm, before working to improve his throwing mechanics. Wentz said his offseason training program could include sessions with quarterback guru Tom House.

    Huddle Up: Wentz had an up-and-down rookie campaign, but he showed promise. He will be a QB2 in redraft leagues in 2017 with added value in keeper formats.

  • Larry Donnell - TE - New York Giants
    Posted 1/15/17 6:31pm ET

    New York Giants impending free-agent TE Larry Donnell said it would be an 'honor' to continue to play for the organization.

    Huddle Up: Donnell probably won't be back with the Giants next year, and he is going to struggle to find fantasy relevance no matter where he signs.

  • Jason Witten - TE - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 5:59pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had six catches for 59 yards and his first postseason touchdown in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Witten can still be counted on for a handful of catches per game, but he does his damage on underneath coverage and offers little upside. Draft him as a TE2 in 2017.

  • Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 5:49pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant had nine catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Bryant was an all-or-nothing fantasy play for much of this season, but when healthy, he still showcased WR1 upside. If he slips a bit in 2017 drafts, he could end up being a steal for fantasy owners.

  • Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 5:34pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had 22 carries for 125 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Dallas came out on the losing end, but Elliott delivered another strong performance. He should be a top-five pick in all formats next season.

  • Dak Prescott - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 5:30pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 302 yards, three touchdowns and an interception and ran for 13 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: After a brilliant rookie season that no one could have predicted, Prescott is already in the mix as a QB1 heading into 2017.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 5:24pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 43 pass attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and had two carries for 16 yards in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers finally threw an interception, but it was another strong performance from one of the best to ever play the position. With a shootout likely on tap against Atlanta in the conference title game, Rodgers should be a popular building block in DFS formats next weekend.

  • Ty Montgomery - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 5:19pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB/WR Ty Montgomery had 11 carries for 47 yards and two touchdowns and caught six passes for 34 yards in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: With the player pool continuing to dwindle, Montgomery's versatility and upside make him a great GPP option in DFS formats during the conference title games.

  • Jared Cook - TE - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 5:10pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook finished with six catches on a team-high 11 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: Cook has become a featured part of Green Bay's passing attack in recent weeks, and he looks like a strong DFS play heading into the conference title game, especially if Jordy Nelson is still sidelined.

  • Will Fuller - WR - Houston Texans
    Posted 1/15/17 4:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR Will Fuller dropped a potential touchdown in a 34-16 loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 14, but head coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller is only going to improve and the drop wasn't the difference in the game.

    Huddle Up: Fuller showed big-play ability in his rookie year, but drops were a problem. He offers upside as a WR4 heading into 2017, especially if Houston can upgrade its quarterback situation.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 4:43pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) returned against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15, after having his left ankle taped.

    Huddle Up: Adams is back in the game, but it remains to be seen if he will be effective while playing through the injury.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 4:36pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) was helped off the field by trainers against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15, with a left ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: With Jordy Nelson already out, Randall Cobb could see a ton of targets if Adams is unable to return.

  • Davante Adams - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 12:27pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will be in the starting lineup for the Divisional round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys with Jordy Nelson (ribs) ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Adams is coming off an outstanding Wild Card performance where he caught eight passes for 125 yards and one touchdown. He may see more targets than usual with Nelson out and should be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his touchdown potential.

  • Tony Romo - QB - Dallas Cowboys
    Posted 1/15/17 10:49am ET

    The Denver Broncos are not inclined to trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo this offseason even though they are Romo's No. 1 preferred spot, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Romo probably will not be back with the Cowboys next season after Dak Prescott's season, but he should be able to find a starting job with a team this offseason. Romo has shown he can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in the past and could be one again in 2017 depending on his team.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers
    Posted 1/15/17 10:44am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) will not play in the Divisional round playoff game, but the Packers hope he could play in the NFC Championship game if they defeat the Dallas Cowboys this weekend.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the team's practice if they are able to advance in the playoffs. Nelson probably would have to do something at practice if he had a chance to play. He would be a risky option for owners if the Packers make the NFC Championship game.
