Rob Gronkowski (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the AFC Championship Game.

Jan 21 - 5:18 PM

Rob Gronkowski (head) was absent for the Patriots' opening drive of the second half in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Woozy after taking a helmet-to-helmet from S Barry Church late in the first half, Gronk was labeled "questionable" at halftime. The fact he was absent for the Pats' first drive of the third quarter obviously bodes poorly.
Jan 21 - 4:53 PM

Patriots declared Mike Gillislee (knee), DT Alan Branch (knee), OL LaAdrian Waddle (knee), TE Jacob Hollister, WR Kenny Britt, WR Bernard Reedy, and LB David Harris inactive for the AFC Championship Game.

Gillislee is probably healthy enough to play, but New England does not need him with Rex Burkhead back in the lineup. Branch seemingly could have been an asset with Leonard Fournette coming to down, but he seems to have fallen out of favor.
Jan 21 - 1:47 PM

Jaguars declared Chris Ivory, OG Chris Reed, DT Eli Ankou, DE Carroll Phillips, OT Josh Walker, OT Will Poehls, and LB Deon King inactive for the AFC Championship Game.

Ivory is a healthy scratch again after sitting out the Divisional Round win last week. T.J. Yeldon went for 77 total yards last week with Ivory on the bench. He is a reasonable DFS dart throw on the short slate.

Rex Burkhead (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

Considering this is his first game action since Week 15 and Dion Lewis has established himself as the clear lead back during that time, it is difficult to predict how much action Burkhead will see in this game. He was dominating red-zone snaps before his injury, however, and it would not be surprising to see him nab a touchdown or two in this matchup. That makes him worth a look in DFS.
Jan 21 - 1:36 PM

Tom Brady (hand) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

There was never much doubt he would play, but it is now official. Brady reportedly threw the ball "incredibly well" during Friday's practice, and he was not wearing a glove on his throwing hand during pre-game warmups. Ultimately, Jacksonville's ability to get pressure, especially up the middle, will play a much larger role in Brady's success than this injury.
Jan 21 - 1:36 PM

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (foot) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

Gipson sat out the first two practices of the week, but he always said he would give it a go. The safety should be a big part of Jacksonville's plan to slow down Rob Gronkowski.
Jan 21 - 1:36 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores will target ex-Lions coach Jim Caldwell to be his offensive coordinator if he lands the Cardinals job.

Despite seven years as an NFL head coach, most recently with the Lions last season, Caldwell has spent limited time as an OC. He did help lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl after taking over as coordinator late in the 2012 season, but Baltimore's offense struggled the next year. Caldwell is a known quantity, however, which might help Arizona feel more comfortable handing the reins to Flores. Arizona reportedly hopes to get Flores in for a second visit soon.
