Fantasy Impact: Manning is set to hold a press conference on Friday. The two-time Super Bowl champ appeared in just four games last season as Daniel Jones claimed the Giants’ starting quarterback job. Manning, the first overall pick in the 2004 draft, finishes his career with 366 touchdown passes and two Super Bowl MVP awards.

Fantasy Impact: With McCoy ruled out, Damien Williams will lead the Chiefs backfield in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against them Titans. Darwin Thompson will back him up, and provide a change of pace when Williams is rested.

Luke Kuechly has announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday. (Source: Carolina Panthers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kuechly, who was under contract for two more years with Carolina, has announced his retirement. This comes as a shock as Kuechly was playing at a high-level, and just recorded his eighth consecutive 100-plus tackle season. The All-Pro linebacker played all eight seasons in Carolina, totaling 1.092 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 18 interceptions and seven forced fumbles across 118 career games.

Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones (calf) will be inactive for his team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Jones injured his calf during practice on Thursday and missed Friday's session. Jones racked up nine sacks during the regular season but his team will be without his services, leaving a big hole in Kansas City's pass rush. Look for Khalen Saunders to see an increased role on Sunday as a result.

Will Fuller active Sunday

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (groin) is officially active for his team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller missed three weeks with his latest injury and remains at risk for an in-game setback but the underdog Texans will welcome the speedy field stretcher back into the fold. Kenny Stills will operate as the team's No. 3 wideout on Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (knee) is officially active for his team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Texans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kelce missed some practice time this week with a knee bruise but his status was never seriously in doubt for his team's playoff tilt against the Texans. He draws an excellent matchup against a Houston secondary that struggled to limit opposing passing attacks this season.

Adam Thielen (ankle) is listed as active for Saturday’s Divisional Round playoff matchup against the 49ers. (Source: Minnesota Vikings on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After going through pregame warmups, Thielen tested his ankle and is all systems go for Saturday’s playoff contest against the 49ers. He suffered a laceration in his left ankle (which required stitches) in Wednesday’s practice, but it will not prevent him from playing Saturday. Thielen caught seven passes for 129 yards against the Saints in the Wild Card round. There has been no report of Thielen being limited, he should play his usual role as one of Kirk Cousin’s top targets.

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with Mike McCarthy on a deal that will make him their new head coach, according to multiple reports. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After a long and awkward goodbye to former head coach Jason Garrett, the Cowboys moved quickly to hire McCarthy. They also reportedly met with Marvin Lewis as they emphasized prior head coaching experience in their search. McCarthy is seen as someone who was key to the development of Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, and that is likely something the Cowboys considered when searching for a new coach to pair with Dak Prescott.
