Fantasy Tip: Bennett has not posted great numbers in terms of his receiving yards but is a threat to score at least one touchdown each game. Owners should consider him a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell appears to have a solid chance to play in the AFC Championship game but probably would have a limited role in the passing game. Owners should be able to find better options and can avoid him.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan is coming off a 95-yard performance in the Divisional round and should have a decent role in the passing game if he is active for the AFC Championship game. Hogan could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola was active for the Divisional round playoff game but was held without a catch on two targets. He could be more involved in the passing game in the AFC Championship game but probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has caught a touchdown in three of his last five games but has at least 50 yards in only one of the last eight games. He has dealt with a variety of injures this season but will continue to have a solid role in the passing game. Bennett should be a decent option for owners in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell has missed the last few weeks because of the injury but appears to be on track to play in the AFC Championship game. He probably will serve as the No. 4 receiver during the game and see limited targets. Fantasy owners should avoid Mitchell in all leagues.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) said he feels good after exiting early with a thigh injury against the Houston Texans last weekend. "[I] just had a little minor setback in the game," Hogan said. "I'm working back every single day and feeling better every day."
Fantasy Tip: The arrow is pointing upward for Hogan's availability in the AFC Championship, but he's not out of the woods yet. If Hogan does play and Malcolm Mitchell sits again then Hogan would make for a sleeper play. He caught four passes for 95 yards before leaving last weekend's contest.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can monitor Mitchell's practice participation during the week to see if he is on track to play in the playoff game. He probably would see limited targets if he plays and can be avoided in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been held to 35 yards or less in each of his last four games but entered the playoffs with three touchdowns in his last four regular season games. He has been receiving a consistent number of targets during games but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end at this point.

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett had one catch for four yards on four targets in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, and he said after the game that he was pressing too hard.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett's yardage totals fluctuate, but he is enough of a weapon in the red zone to roll out as a TE1 against most opponents.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd is probably still learning the playbook, but if Chris Hogan's injury turns out to be serious, Floyd could be in for a big performance in the conference title game.
