Andre Johnson declined to complain about lack of chances over the last month.

Coach and play-caller Gary Kubiak publicly said he has to get Johnson the ball more. But the All-Pro wideout understands what's going on in Houston. "We've been running the ball real well," Johnson said. "When you're running the ball, a lot of times you don't have to throw it." We do expect a more pass-heavy attack against the Packers this week, leaving Johnson as at least a high-end WR2 option.

Alex Smith completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' 18-16, Divisional Round loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

The Chiefs scored the only two touchdowns of this game, but it still wasn't enough to overcome Steelers K Chris Boswell's six field goals. Smith and the Chiefs got the scoring started with a five-yard touchdown pass to Albert Wilson out of the wishbone formation on a play-action boot to the left. Predictably, Kansas City's offense went into a shell after the score and couldn't do much of anything before laboring for a fourth-quarter touchdown to bring the score to 18-16. On the ensuing two-point conversion, Smith hit Demetrius Harris to tie the game, but it was called back on a hold by LT Eric Fisher. They failed on the next attempt from the 12-yard line. Smith threw for a career-high 3,502 yards in 2016, but only threw 15 touchdowns to eight picks. He's not -- and never will be -- a fantasy asset.

Antonio Brown caught 6-of-11 targets for 108 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

Brown went into the half with a 5-101 line on nine targets. His lone second-half catch came on the Steelers' final pass of the game, converting a third-and-short late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Steelers to drain the clock and take home the two-point win. Brown's longest catch was a total mismatch with OLB Justin Houston trying to cover him one-on-one deep down the left sideline. Brown easily won the matchup and turned it into a 52-yard gain. Brown later had a potential 17-yard touchdown ripped out of his grasps in the end zone when Marcus Peters made a great play to strip it. Brown and the Steelers head to Foxboro next weekend for the AFC Championship game. Brown went 7-106-0 against the Patriots in Week 7.

Le'Veon Bell rushed 30 times for 170 yards in the Steelers' 18-16, Divisional Round win over the Chiefs.

Bell was the Steelers' main source of offense, though they weren't able to score a touchdown all night, settling instead for six Chris Boswell field goals to advance to the AFC Championship game. Bell showed his trademark patience in the backfield and had 101 rushing yards at halftime. He didn't do much in the fourth quarter with the Chiefs dominating time of possession on one of their two touchdown drives. Bell was also swallowed up on his two catches, totaling minus-four yards on five targets. Against New England in Week 7, Bell rushed 21 times for 81 yards and caught 10 balls for an additional 68 yards. He's a virtual lock to total 100 yards.

Chris Boswell converted 6-of-6 field goals in the Steelers' 18-16, Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday night.

He accounted for all of the Steelers' points, making field goals from 22, 38, 36, 45, 43, and 43 yards out. The Chiefs scored the two touchdowns this game saw, but they still weren't able to overcome Pittsburgh. Boswell, Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Co. will head to Foxboro next weekend for the AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Ezekiel Elliott tallied 125 yards on 22 carries and caught his only target for a loss of two yards Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Elliott couldn’t have played much better in his first taste of the postseason. Even with Dallas in catch-up mode for most of the second half (and a good chunk of the first half if we’re being honest), Elliott still made his presence felt. Just as he has all season, Zeke rode the Cowboys’ monster offensive line, shooting through gaps with his signature 4.47 speed. He went berserk in the second half, gashing Green Bay for 81 yards on 12 carries after halftime. The Packers feature one of the league’s better run defenses, but that didn’t faze Zeke in the slightest. He averaged an impressive 141 yards per game in his two meetings with Green Bay this season. Elliott had one of the best rookie seasons of all-time this year and will enter 2017 as a legitimate MVP candidate.

Dak Prescott completed 24-of-38 passes for 302 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while adding 13 yards on two carries Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Prescott made one rookie mistake on Sunday—Micah Hyde intercepted his errant screen pass to Cole Beasley in the third quarter. But aside from the pick, Prescott was as poised as any rookie quarterback we’ve seen in the postseason. He put Dallas on his back in the second half, chipping away at the Packers’ 18-point lead and eventually tying the game on a gutsy two-point conversion. Dak had his most success throwing to Dez Bryant, who snared nine-of-12 targets for two touchdowns and a season-high 132 yards. Both of Prescott's carries resulted in third-down conversions. The Cowboys’ decision to spike the ball on first down with under a minute remaining will be hotly debated, but ultimately that wasn’t Dak’s call. Prescott had an impossibly good rookie season, ousting mainstay Tony Romo from his pedestal as the team’s franchise quarterback. There’s no reason to think he’ll slow down anytime soon.

Dez Bryant nabbed nine-of-12 targets for a season-high 132 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

The Cowboys couldn’t fend off Green Bay in the most dramatic game we’ve seen in ages, but Bryant did everything that was asked of him and then some on Sunday. Dallas looked lethargic out of the gate but Bryant changed the momentum quickly by dusting Ladarius Gunter for a 40-yard touchdown late in the first half. Bryant wasn’t done victimizing Gunter, beating him again for a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dez got off to a relatively slow start this year while battling injuries but finished strong with seven touchdowns over his last eight games. The 28-year-old has re-established himself as an elite WR1 in fantasy.

Jared Cook corralled six-of-11 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Cook struggled in the first half, grabbing just two catches for 20 yards and failing to reel in his lone end-zone target. But Aaron Rodgers never lost faith in his tight end and Cook rewarded him with a second half for the ages. The Cowboys bit on play-action, leaving Cook all alone on his three-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. But Cook’s biggest contribution to this game was a magnificent 36-yard catch with three seconds left in the fourth quarter. Rodgers was falling backwards as he threw a missile down the left sideline that Cook caught to set up Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal. Thanks to Cook’s heroics, the Packers are headed to the NFC Championship for the second time in the last three seasons.

Ty Montgomery rushed 11 times for 47 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in six-of-seven targets for 34 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Montgomery didn’t rush for a ton of yards but he made good on both of his goal-line opportunities and kept the chains moving by snagging everything Aaron Rodgers threw at him. He came up huge on the Packers’ final drive with a 17-yard gain off a screen from Rodgers, astutely stepping out of bounds to stop the clock with 30 seconds remaining. Montgomery is never going to be a workhorse in the mold of a Zeke Elliott or Adrian Peterson but his all-purpose role serves the Packers well. He’ll be asked to lead the backfield again in next week’s NFC title game in Atlanta.

Aaron Rodgers completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding two carries for 16 yards Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

What. A. Game. After a first round full of clunkers and an equally snooze-inducing first two games of the Divisional Round, Dallas and Green Bay finally brought the thunder on Sunday afternoon. Rodgers has been scorching hot for two months and he didn’t let up in Sunday’s stunning upset at Jerry World. He scored the game’s first touchdown on a picture-perfect 34-yard throw to Richard Rodgers and added to his tally with a three-yarder to Jared Cook off play-action early in the second half. Rodgers threw an uncharacteristic interception on a pass intended for Davante Adams, ending a streak of 318 consecutive passes without a pick. But Rodgers saved the best for last, threading the needle to Cook for a 36-yard completion in the closing seconds to set up the game-winning field goal. The Packers will put their eight-game winning streak on the line next week in Atlanta. The winner is headed to Super Bowl XLI.
