New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis is being paid $12 million this year, but the Patriots will reportedly try to sign him to a long-term extension this offseason. New England also hasn't ruled out picking up Revis' $20 million option for the 2015 season. If the team doesn't work out a deal with him, they have until late March to release him.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,777, 15.55%) has seen his fair share of postseason success, but he's still a risky option going up against what was arguably the best pass defense in the NFL this season in the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson might be a better option on FantasyScore at $4,444 (8.89% of cap).

Fantasy Tip: Brady's success on scrambling plays could come in handy in the Super Bowl against the Seahawks' tough defense. Fantasy owners should feel comfortable starting him over Russell Wilson ($4,444, 8.89% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,444, 8.89% of cap) should be fine to play in the big game after another week of practice. Seattle poses a stiff test for LaFell and his deep threat, but a cheap price at FantasyScore next weekend makes the decision to start him not as scary.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,777, 15.55% of cap) is facing a tough Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl. However, after seeing what Aaron Rodgers was able to do against them last weekend on a hobbled leg, it's safe to say that Brady will remain a fine choice as your FantasyScore QB over Russell Wilson.

New England Patriots LB Jerod Mayo (knee) said he is on schedule in his rehab from a torn patella tendon. Mayo did not comment on if he will be ready for the start of the offseason schedule. "I think I'm right on schedule," Mayo said. "I'm doing everything. The training staff with the Patriots, they're a great staff, and I'm in there every day. They tell me I'm doing well. They're telling me I'm on time."

Fantasy Tip: There aren't a lot of options at any position with just two teams playing, but LaFell faces a tough test in the Seattle Seahawks and will cost $4,444 (8.89% of cap) on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,777, 15.55%) has been solid all season, but the Seahawks are a different animal when it comes to defending the pass. The Patriots could again rely heavily on LeGarrette Blount and the running game, making Brady a risky option at a high price on FantasyScore.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is often a tough matchup for opposing defenses, but Seattle Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think Gronkowski is "that good." "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls," Lane said. Gronkowski caught 82 passes for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Lane could be lined up often against Gronkowski in the slot in the Super Bowl.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($7,777, 15.55% of cap) will cost you at FantasyScore this weekend, but it's either him or Luke Willson from the Seahawks, basically. You can save money by avoiding Gronk, but it's probably not the smart move.
