Fantasy Impact: Tyler Huntley has replaced Jackson and will try to lead the Ravens back in this one against a tough Buffalo defense.

The Packers D/ST Held the Rams to 18 points and sacked QB Jared Goff four times in Saturday's Divisional round.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers D/ST seems to be clicking at the right time. After starting slow, they finished the fantasy season scoring 10 or more points in 5-of-6 games. With Aaron Rodgers playing the way he is, the Packers will be a tough out if the defense continues to perform.

Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown caught one pass for 27 yards in the Packers' win over the Rams on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has yet to prove himself in the NFL, but his size and speed are compelling. We'll have to wait and see if Brown can show improvement heading into the final year of his four-year contract. At this point in time, Brown cannot be considered an option for fantasy.

Packers K Mason Crosby connected on both of his field-goal attempts and added two PATs in Saturday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Crosby continues his perfect field-goal streak in 2020 and is 18-of-18 on the season. With the Packers' offense performing the way it is, Crosby remains a go-to option at the kicker position.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan caught four passes for 60 yards in the Packers win over the Rams Saturday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan has developed quite the rapport with QB Aaron Rodgers and finished the season as the fantasy TE3. He continued his solid play in the Packers' opening game in the postseason. Tonyan is a plug and play starter at the position moving forward.

Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 14 times for 99 yards and a touchdown and added a 14-yard reception in Saturday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Jones opened the 2nd half with a 60-yard run, then punched it in from the 1-yard line to put the Packers up 15 at the start of the third quarter. Jones was a big play waiting to happen, averaging over seven YPC on the day. He remains an RB1 and the only question remaining is will the Packers sign their top-6 scoring fantasy RB to a long-term deal this offseason.

Packers WR Davante Adams had nine receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Adams continues his monster season with a nine catch game. No one can fault Jalen Ramsey's effort, at this point nine catches and a touchdown can be considered holding Davante Adams in check. He continues to be a truly special WR and is undeniably one of the best in the game.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 23-of-36 for 296 yards and two touchdowns and added a rushing touchdown in Saturday's win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers was on point once again, leading the Packers to 19 first-half points and never looking back. The game was sealed on a perfect dart of a throw for a 58-yard score to Allen Lazard. The Packers seem to be firing on all cylinders right now, and a large part of that is due to the soon to be MVP. Rodgers remains a QB1 moving forward.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) is inactive and will not play in Saturday’s NFC Divisional Round matchup against the Packers. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kupp was a game-time decision heading into Saturday’s game, but was ultimately ruled out. He is dealing with knee inflammation and needs additional time to fully recover. Look for Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson to see extra snaps while Kupp is sidelined.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ravens RB Mark Ingram II will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Bills. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingram has only been active once since Week 14. Rookie J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards will split carries against Buffalo's vulnerable run defense.


Taysom Hill (knee) returned to practice on Friday and is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday against the Bucs. (Source: Nick Underhill on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hill didn't practice on either Wednesday or Thursday, so his return today gives him a good shot at suiting up for this one. Of course, Drew Brees will simply handle all the quarterback reps if Hill can't go.

Saints RB Latavius Murray (quad) is officially "questionable" for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Bucs. (Source: Nick Underhill on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Murray was able to return to practice after sitting out both Wednesday and Thursday. Consider him a game-time decision for this one. Alvin Kamara's ceiling would certainly increase if Murray can't go.

The Atlanta Falcons are hiring former Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a well deserved promotion for Smith, who bring a modern offensive philosophy to his new home. Atlanta still has plenty of talent on offense and Smith will now be tasked with unlocking it. The organization also has the No. 4 overall pick in the draft. Perhaps Smith will want to draft Matt Ryan's successor.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (hip, ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Browns. (Source: Sam McDowell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: CEH practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday but has been listed as "DNP" each of the past two days. This isn't good news for his Divisional Round status at all. It sounds as if he'll be a true game-time decision this weekend, and would likely be playing at less than 100 percent if active. The last time CEH didn't play while the rest of KC's starters did (Week 16), Darrel Williams looked far more explosive than Le'Veon Bell.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) won't play in the Divisional Round against the Browns. (Source: Sam McDowell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Watkins has been bothered by a lower-leg injury since suffering it in Week 16. Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman should both see a bump in targets with Watkins unable to go.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians told the media he expects RB Ronald Jones II (quad) to be a game-time call on Sunday vs. the Saints. (Source: Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Arians also said he expects Leonard Fournette to start either way, just like last weekend vs. Washington. Give Fournette a look in DFS even if Jones is active as it’s certainly possible he only suits up for emergency situations.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians told reporters he expects Leonard Fournette to start Sunday against the Saints regardless of whether Ronald Jones II is active. (Source: Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fournette got the nod in the Wild Card round vs. Washington with Jones aggravating his quad during the pregame. Arians said Jones is likely to be a game-time call, but expects Fournette to start either way, making him a solid option in DFS lineups.


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the New York Jets are hiring former 49ers DC Robert Saleh to a five-year contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Jets themselves have already made the hire official. Saleh is an enthusiastic defensive mind who was responsible for a dominant San Francisco defense in 2019. Unfortunately, his unit was ravaged by injuries this year, but it didn't kill his future head coach shine. The next order of business for the Jets will be figuring out what to do with both Sam Darnold and the No. 2 overall draft pick.

Rams DL Aaron Donald (ribs) was removed from the team's final injury report and will play on Saturday against the Packers. (Source: Cameron DaSilva on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The expectation all week has been that Donald will play. LA will certainly need their stud defensive lineman on the road in Green Bay, opposite Aaron Rodgers and company.

Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Waddle was limited to six appearances this year due to an ankle injury. However, he was able to suit up in the National Championship this week (although the 22-year-old certainly wasn't 100 percent). Waddle is viewed as an extremely talented receiver with good yards-after-catch ability. One concern will be his age (23 as a rookie). Still, Waddle is viewed as a first-round pick.
