Nick Martin Headshot

Nick Martin (ankle) is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Martin, a 2nd round pick in 2016, spent his entire rookie season on IR with an ankle injury. Fortunately for him he should be ready for OTA's and possibly put in a full season of work in 2017. Martin will look to bolster an already solid offensive line for the Houston Texans.

Jordy Nelson Headshot

Jordy Nelson (ribs) is expected to play on Sunday barring a setback.

Nelson, Davante Adams, and Geronimo Allison are all expected to give it a go on Sunday. In a short 2-game slate they're all on the table to be owned, but Nelson in particular comes at a risk considering he's coming back from 3 cracked ribs. Don't be surprised if he's sent out there as a decoy.

Davante Adams Headshot

Davante Adams (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday barring a setback.

All the injured Green Bay WR's are expected to be available on Sunday for the NFC Championship game against Atlanta. They're all in play for DFS, but tread carefully because Nelson, Adams, and Allison are all dealing with injuries.

Chris Hogan Headshot

Chris Hogan (thigh) expected to be active Sunday.

Hogan led all WR's in the NFL in average yards per catch (17.9) so he'll likely be a popular DFS option in larger field contests since it's such a small slate. The question now remains who will else will be added for the Patriots WR's. New England has a heavy need for players at other positions and between Malcolm Mitchelll, Danny Amendola, and Michael Floyd one of them will likely be a healthy scratch.

Max McCaffrey Headshot

Packers promoted Max McCaffrey to their active roster.

The Packers placed offensive linemen J.C. Tretter on IR and officially activated Max McCaffrey from the practice squad. McCaffrey will merely be used as depth because Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams are dealing with injuries. Nelson is less likely to play compared to Adams, but Green Bay needs all the depth at WR that it can get. McCaffrey is likely the bare minimum in DFS so he's a very bold pick in GPP/Tournament contests.

Andrew Luck Headshot

Colts Genenal manager Ryan Grigson has been fired.

Grigson has been fired after 5 years with the Indianapolis Colts. The defense has been a point of weakness for the Colts during Grigson's time and the team failed to address the need in a big way by constantly spending most of their salary cap on offensive talent to piece with Andrew Luck. The Colts failed to make the postseason for the 2nd straight year so it was clear a change needed to be made.

Taylor Gabriel Headshot

Taylor Gabriel (foot) who fully participated in practice Friday, is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

The Falcons enter the NFC Championship game significantly healthier than the Packers who have an abundance of injuries especially at the WR position. Gabriel will likely be a key target for Matt Ryan on Sunday as Green Bay has one of the worst secondaries in the league and they'll likely try to key in on Julio Jones.

Isaiah Crowell Headshot

Browns were in heavy talks on a deal for Isaiah Crowell this season, but they are in a stalemate now.

Crowell finished 48 yards short of 1,000 rushing yards but he was a very reliable and trustworthy option for the Cleveland Browns. He never saw more than 20 touches on the ground in any game, but the Browns felt more comfortable using him in the passing game as the season went on. He's still an under-the-radar type of player and he will likely be a decent RB2 option no matter where he ends up next season.

J.C. Tretter Headshot

J.C. Tretter (knee) had surgery Tuesday.

Tretter originally injured his knee in Week 8 against Atlanta, but aggravated the injury during his recovery. The Packers have not yet decided to place him on IR, in which case they might activate a WR off the practice squad with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams injured as well. Tretter really doesn't have any chance of playing on Sunday, but news on him is worth following in the event that they do put him on IR.

Christine Michael Headshot

Packers have added RB Christine Michael (back) to the injury report and he is questionable for Sunday’s game..

This is a new development, as he had avoided the injury report earlier in the week. If he cannot play on Sunday, then the Packers will rely on Ty Montgomery and Aaron Ripkowski to lead the rushing attack against the Falcons. If Michael can play, it could result in Montgomery being shifted forward to the line, as the Green Bay receiving corps are beat up going into the NFC Conference Championship game.
