Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick earlier this week, according to a league source. However, there are no current openings on the Patriots' coaching staff and it is uncertain if a possible role in the front office was discussed.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee), LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) were limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and are listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has found the end zone in three of the last four games but has not caught more than four passes in a game in the last eight games. He can still be a No. 1 tight end for fantasy owners because of his touchdown potential.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:46:52 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Mitchell has missed time because of his knee injury but appears to have a chance to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He probably would see limited targets if he plays and could be avoided in some fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can keep an eye on the situation to see if Hogan is in any danger of missing the game. He probably will be the team's No. 2 receiver if he plays and can be a decent No. 3 receiver option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola appears to have a solid chance to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but owners can check on his status closer to game time. He should see a decent amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Mitchell hasn't played since Week 16, so even if he does manage to return Sunday evening, he'd be a risky fantasy option. The 23-year-old rookie has been able to practice on a limited basis this week, but it's unknown how close he is to full health. Owners can do better.

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.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:51:08 -0800
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.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:41:20 -0800
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.
