Pittsburgh Steelers PK Chris Boswell (illness) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Jan. 19.
Huddle Up: Although Boswell was fantastic last week, making all six of his field goal attempts against the Chiefs in the Divisional Round, he's probably the least recommended kicker of the four remaining for DFS lineups this weekend. His NFC counterparts will be kicking indoors in a likely shootout, while his opponent on Sunday, Stephen Gostowski, is as reliable as they get.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was held to three rushing attempts for 18 yards and four catches for 27 yards in an 18-16 loss Sunday, Jan. 15, to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: It's clear Pittsburgh knew Hill would be a prominent part of Kansas City's offense and acted to shut him down. The gambit worked. Hill may be a decent WR2 candidate heading into next season, but draft him as a return specialist if you can. Leagues with KR or PR positions will benefit greatly.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is eligible for a contract extension this offseason, and beat writer Mark Cook believes the Buccaneers should try to extend Evans before New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. receives a new deal and sets the market.
Huddle Up: Evans has 3,578 yards and 27 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He is a WR1 in any format and a top-five pick in dynasty leagues.
