The New England Patriots D/ST allowed 47 points and did not record any sacks or turnovers in the team's 47-17 Wild Card defeat to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots D/ST struggled mightily versus the Bills, allowing them to go 7-for-7 on touchdown drives to achieve a perfect offensive game. It was a brutal finish to the year for the Patriots, who otherwise served as an elite D/ST option for fantasy purposes. They'll likely be a top-five D/ST pick in drafts next season.

Patriots kicker Nick Folk kicked 2-of-2 extra points in New England's Wild Card loss in Buffalo. He additionally converted on a 44-yard field goal.

Fantasy Impact: Folk produced a strong year, going 36-for-39 on field goals, including a career-high five 50+ yard field goals. He should remain a top-10 kicking option for fantasy purposes, assuming he is brought back by the Patriots.

Hunter Henry hauled in 1-of-4 targets for 30 yards in the Patriots' playoff loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: While Henry was signed to a cheaper contract than Jonnu Smith, it was the former who ultimately produced the superior receiving stats this year. Henry finished with a line of 50/603/9, while Smith finished with 28/294/1. Henry was good for ninth in the league with nine receiving touchdowns, though served as a touchdown-dependent fantasy option all season long. With the tight end position still very shallow, Henry should remain a low-end TE1 next year.

Kendrick Bourne hauled in 7-of-8 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' playoff defeat to the Bills. He added one carry for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Bourne ultimately served as one of the lone bright spots in the underwhelming Patriots' passing attack all year long, registering a receiving line of 55/800/5 to go with 125 rushing yards on 12 carries. Jakobi Meyers was the only pass catcher to finish with more receptions and yardage. Bourne should remain on the WR4 map for next season.

Jakobi Meyers hauled in 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards in New England's Wild Card loss to Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: Meyers had a chance for a touchdown in this blowout playoff loss, but couldn't come up with the catch in the end zone. Despite the severe lack of scores, Meyers easily led the team with 83 receptions for 866 yards this season. He is still not meant to serve as a No. 1 pass-catching option, and it's likely that the Patriots attempt to bring in a true WR1 this offseason to help Mac Jones take a step forward. Regardless, Meyers should remain relevant in fantasy next season.

Rhamondre Stevenson rushed eight times for 27 yards and caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in New England's Wild Card loss to Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: With the Patriots falling behind early and never making it close, Stevenson didn't have much of a chance to produce this game. He became fantasy relevant in Week 9 versus the Panthers, and remained involved the rest of the way as the 1B option at tailback for the Patriots. While Damien Harris served as the lead back the entire season, Stevenson was consistently more active in the passing game. He should continue to receive enough touches to warrant FLEX consideration next year.

Damien Harris rushed nine times for 30 yards and caught his lone target for seven yards in the Patriots' Wild Card defeat to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: With the Patriots falling behind early and never making it close, Harris didn't have much of a chance to produce this game. He still enjoyed a breakout season, finishing 10th in the league in rushing with 929 yards and second in rushing scores with 15. This was in spite of the emergence of Rhamondre Stevenson, who ultimately served as the 1B option at tailback throughout the second half of the year. Harris will remain a strong RB2 for fantasy purposes, with RB1 upside next season.

Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones completed 24-of-38 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in New England's Wild Card defeat to Buffalo. He added two carries for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had his work cut out for him in his playoff debut, with Josh Allen engineering a perfect offensive game for the Bills, going 7-for-7 on touchdown drives. The Patriots fell behind early and never made it close, putting Jones in a difficult situation from start to finish. While he threw a pair of picks, each of them wasn't particularly a bad throw, as the first was simply an impressive catch by safety Micah Hyde and the second was tipped up in the air. Jones finished his rookie season with 3801 passing yards, 22 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He generally didn't throw the ball downfield nor produce any explosive performances throughout the year, but he was consistently serviceable and rarely registered any poor performances. On top of that, his receiving corps was one of the weaker ones in the league, though the run game was effective all season long. Jones should remain a solid QB2 next year.

Arik Armstead recorded four tackles, one sack, and three QB hits in the win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Armstead tallied four tackles, one sack and three QB hits. He was a force for the Niners defense that lost Nick Bosa to a concussion on Sunday.

George Kittle caught 1-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the 49ers win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: The three targets are indicative of the Niners using Kittle as a pass blocker. That being said Kittle's lone catch went for 18 yards and gave us a taste of what Kittle can do with some solid target numbers.

Elijah Mitchell ran the ball 27 times for 96 yards and a touchdown. He also caught one pass for -11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Mitchell looked good in the first half scoring the game's first touchdown. He struggled in the second half to get anything consistent going. Averaging 3.6 yards per carry, Mitchell had some good runs and was the lead back for the Niners.

Brandon Aiyuk caught 5-of-6 targets for 66 yards against the Cowboys on Super Wild Card Weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Aiyuk has been developing as a deep threat and made his mark in this game with a 37-yard catch and run. The wide receiver two for the Niners is becoming a big-time threat downfield.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 16-of-26 passes for 172 yards and an interception in the Wild Card win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Jimmy G played well outside of the interception. He was limited in his usage as the Niners' rushing attack scored their touchdowns in this game.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wants to explore all of his options this offseason and see what else might be out there for him, according to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: While a trade should not be assumed, especially given Wilson's history with the team, it should not be dismissed as a possibility, either. Wilson completed 259 of 400 pass attempts this season for 3,113 yards, 25 touchdowns, and six interceptions through 15 games. He also rushed for 183 yards and two additional touchdowns.

Deebo Samuel reeled in all three of his targets for 38 yards. He also ran the ball 10 times for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Samuel was a beast once again in this game, making the most of a 49ers interception. Running the ball in for a 26-yard rushing touchdown. Deebo continued to be otherworldly in this game. He's the Niners "go-to-guy", no questions asked.

Zay Jones saw eight targets on Saturday, catching five of them for 61 receiving yards while also scoring the team's lone touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been impressive over the final stretch of the season, and could be an interesting sleeper pick next season should he find himself in the proper situation. A return to Las Vegas is certainly not out of question either, although he should draw the interest of many teams across the league.

Darren Waller caught seven of his targets on Saturday, totalling a team-high 76 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: Waller missed a lot of time this season due to injury, but he did end the season on a high note. It was a solid performance that certainly made many fantasy managers ponder what could have been for the star tight end. Despite the lull season, Waller should return to top status next season when he is fully healthy.

Hunter Renfrow hauled in eight of his 11 targets for 58 yards in Saturday's loss to Cincinnati.

Fantasy Impact: Renfrow has seen a yardage dip over the recent weeks, but got back into the receptions game with a team-high eight catches in this one. Renfrow will be a hot pick next season, although the Raiders roster could look quite different in 2022.

Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 83 yards on Saturday, while also hauling in four of his five targets for 44 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: As per the last few weeks, Jacobs was the pure workhorse in this one seeing 17 of the team's 18 running back touches. Jacobs should have a ton of value going into next season, especially if the Raiders opt to keep him as their primary third-down back.

Derek Carr completed 29 of his 54 passes for 310 yards, a touchdown, and a interception on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Carr also had a run for 20 yards, making for an all-around solid game for the Raiders QB. Carr had a chance to tie the game as well late in the fourth quarter, but was unable to find Zay Jones in the endzone. Still, it caps a decent season for Carr as he now enters an interesting off-season for Las Vegas.
