James White rushed three times for four yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars, adding three receptions for 22 additional yards.

Although he touched the ball only six times, White was a big part of the game plan with Rex Burkhead (knee) evidently still not quite right. Now White is returning to the Super Bowl, where he was last seen catching 14 passes.

Rex Burkhead rushed once for five yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

Burkhead failed to corral his lone target in the passing game. Returning from a troublesome knee injury, Burkhead was charted as playing just three snaps by Pro Football Focus. Burkhead has two weeks to get into better shape for Super Bowl LII, where he should be a bigger factor.
Jan 21 - 7:22 PM

Dion Lewis rushed nine times for 34 yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars, adding seven receptions for 32 additional yards.

Lewis also lost a critical second half fumble, but the play was more of a sensational Myles Jack effort than Lewis mistake. Coach Bill Belichick did not go away from his early-down hammer, and Lewis responded by icing the game with an 18-yard run on 3rd-and-9 with 1:30 to go. Regardless of which of the Patriots' four running backs are healthy, Lewis will take the lead in Super Bowl LII.
Jan 21 - 7:14 PM

Danny Amendola caught 7-of-9 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

The touchdowns doubled Amendola's regular season total. Any time the Pats needed a big play, Amendola seemed to be catching the ball beyond the sticks. He and Brandin Cooks both stepped up after Rob Gronkowski was lost to a first half concussion. Savvy and tough, Amendola figures to be a key target against either of the Vikings or Eagles' tough defenses in Super Bowl LII.
Jan 21 - 7:11 PM

Dede Westbrook caught 1-of-3 targets for 29 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

A 2016 Heisman Trophy finalist at Oklahoma who flashed 4.39 wheels at the Sooners' Pro Day, 6-foot-0 Westbrook dropped to the fourth round because of concerns about his attitude and commitment. He had an elite preseason — 13/288/2 — but spent the first 10 weeks of the season on injured reserve after undergoing core muscle surgery. Westbrook made some big plays upon his return, but was out-shined by UDFA Keelan Cole. Not that Westbrook disappointed. With Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee both headed to free agency, Westbrook could have a big 2018 role. He's a strong hold in Dynasty leagues.
Jan 21 - 7:02 PM

Allen Hurns caught 6-of-7 targets for 80 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

The 80 yards were Hurns' most since Week 7. He missed Weeks 11-16 with an ankle issue. It was a disappointing year for a player who had a big opportunity after Allen Robinson was lost for the season in Week 1 with a knee injury. Robinson and Marqise Lee are both headed to free agency, but even if they both walk, Hurns could still return as the Jags' No. 3 receiver. Rookies Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook both came on strong down the stretch.
Jan 21 - 6:55 PM

Marqise Lee caught 4-of-8 targets for 41 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Headed to free agency, Lee spent 2017 as the Jaguars' No. 1 receiver after Allen Robinson was lost for the season in Week 1 with a knee injury. He failed to have a 100-yard day as he battled through a variety of injuries in a run-heavy offense, though he did clear 60 seven times. Lee is a chain-mover who offers explosive-play ability, but has been hampered by durability and quarterback issues. He could be an Emmanuel Sanders-type steal on the open market but is not without some risk.
Jan 21 - 6:49 PM

Keelan Cole caught 2-of-3 targets for 37 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

It was a quiet end to an explosive rookie campaign for the undrafted free agent out of Kentucky Wesleyan. Cole generated 748 yards on just 42 receptions (17.8 yards per catch), out-shining more hyped rookie teammate Dede Westbrook. Cole posted 100-yard games in Weeks 15 and 16, and made a number of spectacular down-field plays. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has likened Cole to an "undrafted Marvin Jones." With Cole and Westbrook on the rise and Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee headed to free agency, the Jags have a jigsaw puzzle at receiver.
