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.

The New England Patriots will be willing to listen to trade offers for QB Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason and will be looking for at least a first-round pick in return. The Patriots will also have to make sure they are comfortable with QB Jacoby Brissett as their No. 2 quarterback before moving Garoppolo.
Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo likely will be a trade target for multiple teams this offseason, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He threw for 502 yards and four touchdowns in his limited playing time this season and likely will be a starting quarterback in 2017. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season no matter where he plays.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has not posted great receiving yards over the last several weeks and probably has been affected by his injured ankle. He did find the end zone in three of his last four regular season game and is a weapon in the red zone. Fantasy owners can consider Bennett a No. 1 tight end this week.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's production was disappointing for much of 2016, but he did score in three of the last four regular season games. The Steelers struggled to contain Kansas City's Travis Kelce (five catches, 77 yards) last week as well, and Bennett has the skills to take advantage.
