Fantasy Tip: The Pats are optimistic that he can be ready to go and give Tom Brady another offensive weapon to work with on Sunday. Don't hold your breath, as this could be a decision closer to game time.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan has already said he would play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 22, so this is likely a precaution. Hogan is a darkhorse for catching passes, having nabbed all of his four targets in the postseason for 95 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bolden were to suit up and play, he hasn't done much of anything this season. The best bet is to sit him and calculate his fantasy value for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a huge setback, Bennett should be on the sidelines and ready to go for the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 22. If you have Bennett in a lineup, go ahead and start him.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle), TE Martellus Bennett (knee), RB Brandon Bolden (knee), LB Dont'a Hightower (knee), WR Chris Hogan (thigh), WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee), and DE Jabaal Sheard (ankle) all were limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola was actually active last week for the first time since Week 13, but made no impact, as he was held without a catch on two targets. That being said, it's hard to recommend the veteran wide-out for any DFS lineups, at least until he's fully healthy and more featured again.

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 14:14:46 -0800
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.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:19:15 -0800
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.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:17:55 -0800
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.
