    Travis Kelce Jan 30 8:50am ET
    Travis Kelce

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (back) was a game-time decision for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he suited up and ended up leading the team in receptions, catching seven passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. Kelce has been quarterback Patrick Mahomes' top weapon all season long, so it's not a shock to see him continue to look Kelce's way, even with Kelce banged up a little bit. Kelce will be an elite DFS option against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.

    Patrick Mahomes Jan 30 8:30am ET
    Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looked impacted at times by the ankle sprain he suffered last week against the Jaguars, but he still managed to go 29-for-43 for 326 yards with a pair of touchdowns while also adding eight rushing yards, including a five-yard scamper that helped set up the game-winning field goal as the Chiefs took down the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. Mahomes will have another two weeks now to rest up before the Super Bowl meeting with the Eagles, so expect to see him look much closer to 100% for that contest.

    Isiah Pacheco Jan 30 8:30am ET
    Isiah Pacheco

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco saw a lot of usage in Sunday's AFC Championship Game win over the Bengals, with 10 carries and five receptions. He didn't produce a ton on the ground as he finished with just 26 rushing yards, but that was enough to lead the team, as the rest of the Chiefs combined for 10 carries and 16 yards. The passing game was there Pacheco made a real impact, as he turned his five catches into 59 yards. He likely won't get quite as much usage against the Eagles in the Super Bowl, but it's an encouraging sign to see how much more usage he had than the team's other running backs.

    Evan McPherson Jan 30 12:30am ET
    Evan McPherson

    Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson made both of his field goal attempts during the AFC Championship loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. The 23-year-old remained perfect in the postseason, extending his streak to 19 successful field goal attempts. While McPherson took a step back this season to a degree, he'll draw plenty of attention from fantasy managers heading into the 2023-24 campaign.

    Hayden Hurst Jan 30 12:20am ET
    Hayden Hurst

    Cincinnati Bengals tight end Hayden Hurst finished with four catches for 37 yards during the AFC Championship loss to the Chiefs. The 29-year-old scored a touchdown against the Bills in the divisional round. While he came close to another one on Sunday night, he ultimately fell short. Hurst finished the regular season with 52 receptions for 414 yards and two touchdowns. Although he failed to live up to expectations in some ways, he may have done enough to earn himself another deal with the Bengals heading into the 2023-24 campaign. However, Hurst's fantasy stock will be limited until he proves he can be a consistent contributor.

    Tyler Boyd Jan 30 12:10am ET
    Tyler Boyd

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (thigh) finished with two catches for 40 yards in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The veteran looked good early in this one. However, he suffered a left thigh injury in the second quarter, so he was a non-factor for the remainder of the night. The 29-year-old finished the regular season with 58 receptions for 762 yards and five touchdowns. While the duo of Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase will continue to limit Boyd's ceiling as long as he stays in Cincinnati, he'll remain a flex option in deep fantasy setups heading into the 2023-24 campaign, barring a severe injury to his leg.

    Ja'Marr Chase Jan 29 11:50pm ET
    Ja'Marr Chase

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase finished with six receptions for 75 yards during the AFC Championship loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The former LSU Tiger found the end zone in five of his previous six games entering this one. However, he played second fiddle to Tee Higgins, who led the Bengals in receiving on the night. Chase missed time throughout the year because of a hip injury. Yet, he still had 1,046 yards and nine touchdowns off a career-high 87 catches. Although Justin Jefferson is the consensus overall top fantasy wideout, Chase may surpass him for that spot by the end of the 2023-24 campaign, especially with Joe Burrow as his quarterback.

    From RotoBaller

    Tee Higgins Jan 29 11:40pm ET
    Tee Higgins

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins finished with six catches for a team-high 83 yards during the loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship. He also scored a touchdown, pulling in a 27-yard pass from Joe Burrow in the third quarter. After struggling throughout the first two games of the postseason, Higgins finally got it together. However, it wasn't enough, as the Bengals fell short of their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. Overall, the 24-year-old had a fantastic season, amassing 74 receptions for a career-high 1,029 yards and seven touchdowns. Although Ja'Marr Chase will continue to take away targets from Higgins moving forward, he'll still be a highly coveted option in every fantasy draft heading into the 2023-24 campaign.

    Samaje Perine Jan 29 11:10pm ET
    Samaje Perine

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine finished with five carries for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. He also scored a touchdown, finding the end zone early in the fourth quarter, and had three catches for four yards. The 27-year-old looked better than Joe Mixon, who had eight attempts for a measly 19 yards. Perine arguably had the best season of his career, amassing 394 rushing yards and a career-high 38 catches for 287 yards for six total scores. At this rate, he's done enough to earn a more prominent role regardless of where he lands next season. However, if he remains in Cincinnati, he could see enough touches throughout the year to severely jeopardize Mixon's fantasy potential.

    From RotoBaller

    Joe Mixon Jan 29 11:00pm ET
    Joe Mixon

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was a non-factor in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The former sooner carried the ball only eight times, three more than Samaje Perine, and totaled just 19 yards while adding three catches for 15 yards. Mixon looked fantastic in the win over the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. However, he didn't get anything going in the AFC Championship, ceding carries and a touchdown to Perine. Mixon finished the regular season with 210 carries for 814 yards. He also combined for nine touchdowns, seven less than the 2021-22 campaign. As a result, the 26-year-old will be hard to trust heading into next season, especially if Perine remains on the team. But even if Perine doesn't stay in Cincy, Mixon's fantasy stock may plummet throughout the offseason.

    Joe Burrow Jan 29 10:40pm ET
    Joe Burrow

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow couldn't lift his team to a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. The signal-caller threw 270 yards in the narrow AFC Championship loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, tossing one touchdown along with two interceptions. Burrow had trouble getting anything going early, as the Bengals offensive line couldn't stop the Chiefs defense from getting to their quarterback. However, even after the group got it together, the former LSU Tiger still fell short of his second AFC title. Burrow had a fantastic 2022-23 campaign, finishing the regular season with 4,475 yards, 35 touchdowns, and 12 picks while completing 68.3% of his throws. Fortunately, barring a trade, he'll have Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Joe Mixon back at his disposal. As a result, Burrow will be one of the first fantasy quarterbacks off draft boards heading into the new year.

    Tyler Boyd Jan 29 8:43pm ET
    Tyler Boyd

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (thigh) is questionable to return to the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs after exiting the game in the first half due to a thigh injury.

    Arik Armstead Jan 29 8:30pm ET
    Arik Armstead

    The San Francisco 49ers defensive unit allowed 31 points to the Philadelphia Eagles in a blowout 7-31 NFC Championship Game loss. Dre Greenlaw led the 49ers with nine combined tackles, including two tackles for losses. Fred Warner added eight tackles and one tackle for a loss. Only Arik Armstead was able to come up with a sack, and no Niner forced a fumble or made an interception. As a result, the 49ers DST scored 0 points in the NFL.com standard scoring system.

    Tyler Boyd Jan 29 8:13pm ET
    Tyler Boyd

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (ankle) left the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs in the first half due to an injury, and he has been back on the field for just one play since suffering the ailment.

    Robbie Gould Jan 29 7:50pm ET
    Robbie Gould

    San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould made the only extra point he attempted and did not try any field goals in the Niners' 7-31 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. After two-straight games making four field goals, this was an extremely disappointing game for Gould starters. The 49ers offense was already in for a tough game, but the going got tougher when quarterback Brock Purdy left the game in the first quarter with an elbow injury. No. 4 quarterback Josh Johnson was then taken out and put in concussion protocol. Purdy returned but was severely hampered. Ultimately, the 49ers only gained 164 yards all game and never got into the red zone.

    George Kittle Jan 29 7:30pm ET
    George Kittle

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle caught three passes for 32 yards in the Niners' 7-31 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. The 29-year-old also took one carry for four yards. The Niners' passing game was impacted by injuries to both quarterbacks Brock Purdy (elbow) and Josh Johnson (concussion protocol). San Francisco only threw the ball 18 times all game, and Purdy only made two passes in the second half after Johnson left the game in the third quarter. Kittle will be one of the top tight ends taken in 2023 fantasy drafts.

    Kadarius Toney Jan 29 7:30pm ET
    Kadarius Toney

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle) is questionable to return to the AFC Championship matchup with Cincinnati. Toney entered this contest with five catches for 36 yards, the most on the team this postseason. However, if he doesn't make it back on Sunday, he'll finish with one catch for nine yards. Of course, the Chiefs have plenty of options on the offensive end, so Patrick Mahomes won't be impacted.

    From RotoBaller

    Brandon Aiyuk Jan 29 7:10pm ET
    Brandon Aiyuk

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk caught just one pass for 10 yards on his only target of the NFC Championship Game, a 7-31 San Francisco loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. As the 49ers' primary deep threat, Aiyuk was hurt by the loss of quarterbacks Brock Purdy (elbow) and Josh Johnson (concussion protocol) to injuries. Purdy would come back in the third quarter, but he was unable to throw well and only attempted two passes, both for only a couple of yards. Aiyuk had his first 1,000-yard season of his career, so he could enter the 2023 fantasy season with momentum.

    From RotoBaller

    Deebo Samuel Jan 29 7:00pm ET
    Deebo Samuel

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught three passes for 33 yards in the Niners' 7-31 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. The 27-year-old also lost nine yards on six carries. The 49ers were desperately trying to get anything going after both their quarterbacks got injured. Samuel was used on more rushes than he has in any playoff game this year, but the Eagles were expecting runs. Only three of Samuel's runs went for gains. He also took a fourth quarter kickoff out of the end zone for a 37-yard return, his only kickoff return of the season.

    Dallas Goedert Jan 29 6:53pm ET
    Dallas Goedert

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught five passes for 23 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. He was targeted six times during the game.
