New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan's 180 receiving yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers are the most ever in a postseason contest by an undrafted player. The previous high was retired WR Steve Watson's 177 yards for the 1984 Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: Hogan has rapidly become one of the league's best breakout stories, and he's picked the right time to do it. Despite registering only 38 receptions in 15 games for the Patriots during the regular season, the 28-year-old Hogan has accumulated 13 catches across both of New England's playoff bouts, to go along with 275 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. In what will likely be a shootout, Hogan may be on the verge of producing another big stat-line in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: It's a small sample size but it's also indicative of the type of winner and dominant player Brady truly is. Of course, this year's Falcons team is almost entirely different from any other Atlanta squad that he's faced throughout his career, but it really doesn't matter what defense you put in front of the future Hall-of-Famer.

Fantasy Tip: After a three-touchdown effort a week ago, Lewis was barely part of the game plan. The Patriots have him under contract in 2017; he's a sound PPR target as a weekly flex consideration.

The New England Patriots defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 36-17 on Sunday, Jan. 22, in the AFC Championship Game. The Patriots will face the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been playing with a cracked ankle bone and a hyperextended knee. He was more effective for the Pats than gamers. Bennett is in a contract year, so his playing location next year largely controls his fantasy potential.

Fantasy Tip: Pittsburgh had no answer for Hogan in the first half, when he landed seven of his nine receptions and both TDs. The first-year Patriot carved up zone coverage and worked the screen game. He's a WR4 or No. 5 in 2017 fantasy drafts, possessing more worth in non-PPR setups.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 32-for-42 passing for 384 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. That was Brady's highest career postseason yardage figure.
Fantasy Tip: TB12 was simply brilliant. Unless he inexplicably retires after the season, Brady should be a midrange QB1 in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was his typically dynamic self, and he is as productive as anyone when healthy. The upcoming draft season should find him placed somewhere in the neighborhood of being a WR2 in PPR and a third in standard scoring.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and one touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. He added one catch for eight yards.
Fantasy Tip: Blount has been masterful at finding the end zone this season, and -- assuming the to-be free agent returns to the Pats -- he'll be a viable RB3 in most formats for the 2017 fantasy campaign.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell is a risky DFS play this week, but with such a small player pool, consider him a flex.
