Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II did not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Fantasy Impact: This ankle injury seems as though it is not going to be healing fast enough for Jones to suit up for gameday this week. The good news for the Bucs is that they will have Fournette, Vaughn, Bernard and Bell all at their disposal for the contest. Expect Jones to most likely miss this matchup.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Breshad Perriman did not practice on Wednesday due to a hip and abdomen injury. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Fantasy Impact: The hip injury is not a new injury for Perriman but the abdomen injury is something new to monitor throughout the week. If Perriman cannot suit up for the game and also Grayson Jr then you can expect Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson to fill the two roles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Cyril Grayson Jr. did not practice on Wednesday with a hamstring injury. (Source: Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Fantasy Impact: Grayson Jr. has been out since the last game of the regular season, with him logging a DNP due to the hamstring injury it is not helping the Buccaneers banged up offense. We will have to monitor him throughout the week for his game day status.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling did not practice on Wednesday due to a back injury. (Source: Tom Silverstein on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Valdes-Scantling was limited on Tuesday with the back injury so it is not great news that he did not practice today. If he is not able to suit up for the matchup against the 49ers you should expect Lazard and Cobb to see an increased workload. We will have to monitor throughout the week for his status for gameday.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Gio Bernard was limited in Wednesday's practice with a hip and knee injury. (Source: Scott Smith on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: These injuries are the same ones that had Bernard put on to the IR for four weeks, this is most likely precautionary measures being taken by the staff. Bernard should be out there against the Rams this week, but with Fournette returning Gio's opportunities will most likely decrease.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Trey Henrickson participated in Wednesday's practice. (Source: Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hendrickson has now practiced on back-to-back days and appears to be on track to play against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday. Hendrickson being healthy is a major boost for a defensive line that lost defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi during the Wild Card round. Hendrickson being active will be key to the Bengals efforts to keep Ryan Tannehill under duress and to their hopes to contain Derrick Henry.

Bradlee Anae signs with Jets

The New York Jets have signed edge rusher Bradlee Anae, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys. (Source: David Canter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anae was unable to crack the rotation in Dallas but has a chance to do so in New York. The Jets are expected to prioritize upgrading the defensive line this offseason, so they may not be done making additions. Kyle Hamilton is expected to go to the Jets at fourth overall, but the team would likely pounce on Aidan Hutchinson or Kavyon Thibodeaux if available. Regardless of whether he gets a legit opportunity to crack the starting lineup, this is an impact, low-risk, high upside signing by the Jets.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers. (Source: Matt Schneidman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cobb has been sidelined since Week 12 with a core injury. The veteran slot receiver has not been very consistent for the Packers in terms of snaps and production but could be leaned on during the playoffs. At the very least, he should give Aaron Rodgers a trusted safety valve when he is on the field.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers right tackle Tristan Wirfs missed Wednesday's walkthrough due to an ankle injury. (Source: Jenna Laine on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wirfs was hurt during the Wild Card matchup against the Eagles and reportedly would have missed practice today if the Buccaneers held an actual session. He still has two more days to return to the practice field, but his injury is a major concern for an offensive line that will have to deal with one of the more intimidating defensive fronts in football. Wirfs, if inactive, would be a major loss for both the pass and run games for Tampa Bay.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette participated in the team's Wednesday walkthrough. (Source: Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fournette is expected to play this week after sitting out the Wild Card round. He was able to practice all of last week, but the team wanted to exercise caution and take a long-term approach against the 'happy to be here' Philadelphia Eagles. He should be closer to the 100 percent that Bruce Arians wants to see him at heading into this weekend and will be needed against a much tougher opponent in the Los Angeles Rams. Fournette should resume his lead back duties if active.

Dwayne Haskins said that Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert indicated he will have a chance to compete for the starting QB job heading into the 2022 season. (Source: Brian Batko on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: With it looking like Ben Roethlisberger's time as a Steeler is officially over, they'll be in the market this offseason for the team's next quarterback. Haskins and Mason Rudolph remain on the roster. There have been various rumors of them being in on Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson if either of them move teams, while the NFL Draft will also be an option.

Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman said that Jalen Hurts has earned the 2022 starting quarterback job. (Source: Philadelphia Eagles on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles do have three first-round picks coming up, but it appears they'll be using them on other needs. Hurts took the Eagles to the playoffs in his first full season as the starter, while it is likely the Eagles address the wide receiver position this offseason to go along with a potential second-year leap from DeVonta Smith.

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa (concussion) did not practice Tuesday. (Source: Kate Rooney on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bosa’s activity this week will definitely be worth monitoring as he attempts to clear concussion protocol and practice in some capacity in time to go up against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. His ability to shed defenders and pressure the quarterback will be desperately needed if the 49ers hope to beat Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and company on Saturday night.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner (ankle) logged a limited practice on Tuesday. (Source: Kate Rooney on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: If Warner continues increase his practice activity throughout the week, it would be a huge boost to a 49er defense as they prepare to go up against MVP candidate Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for a berth in the NFC championship game.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb/shoulder) logged a limited practice session on Tuesday. (Source: Kate Rooney on Twitter)

Per Wes Hodkiewicz, Packers RB Aaron Jones practices in full on Tuesday. (Source: Wes Hodkiewicz)

Fantasy Impact: Jones came into the playoffs with a knee injury he suffered in Week 10. The veteran logged a full practice and seems like a full-go for the Packers playoff matchup with the 49ers.

Per Matt Schneidman, Jaire Alexander (shoulder) is practicing on Tuesday, hopeful to play Saturday. (Source: Matt Schneidman)

Fantasy Impact: After injuring his shoulder in week 3 of the regular season, the star CB is practicing on Tuesday with the team. The hope is that Alexanders will play during the Packers playoff game on Saturday, a big addition as they take on the 49ers.

Derrick Henry has been cleared for contact in practice this week. (Source: Turron Davenport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: After getting some practice in ahead of the Titans regular season finale in which Henry did not play to go along with the practice he will go through this week, Henry appears to be on track to being able to return for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Bengals. It will likely only be a matter of whether or not he will be limited in any capacity in his first game back.

Matt Gay connected on both of his field goal attempts and all four extra point attempts in the Rams Wildcard Round win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The field goals were late in the game from 37 and 46 yards out. The Rams are going to continue to need clutch kicks from Gay next week against Tampa Bay.

The Los Angeles Rams D/ST held the Arizona Cardinals offense to 11 points and 183 total yards in Monday's Wildcard win.

Fantasy Impact: The Rams were all over Kyler Murray right out of the gate, picking up two sacks and two interceptions including a pick-six. They will have a much tougher test as they head out to face Tom Brady and Tampa Bay next week.
