  Patriots | Dion Lewis a non-factor    Sun Jan 22, 10:22 PM

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for eight yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: Lewis scored three touchdowns in the Divisional Round, but he barely touched the ball against the Steelers. He didn't need to...the Steelers decided to leave WR Chris Hogan wide open for most of the contest.

  Steelers | DeAngelo Williams bottled up    Sun Jan 22, 09:57 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams rushed 14 times for 34 yards and a touchdown filling in for an injured RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

Footballguys view: The Patriots did a good job of shutting down the Steelers rushing attack...whether it was Bell or Williams.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount powers late in win    Sun Jan 22, 09:44 PM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and one touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. He added one catch for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Blount didn't do much early, but he just kept leaning on the defense. He broke through in the third quarter, and the game broke open for the Patriots.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could be released    Sun Jan 22, 12:42 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles may be a candidate to be released this offseason because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2017 and dealt with knee injuries this season.

Footballguys view: It's a brutal game y'all. It would be great to see Charles end his career with the Chiefs, but the business side of things always kicks in at some point. His $7 million cap number won't fly, so expect things to change for the veteran back. Charles could return if the two sides can agree on a restructured contract.

  Packers | Christine Michael added to injury report    Sat Jan 21, 01:38 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael (back) has been added to the injury report for the NFC Championship game because of a back injury and is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: Michael wasn't in line to do much anyway. In two postseason games with the Packers, Michael has only 10 carries for 47 yards. If he's limited against the Falcons, it just means more work for Ty Montgomery.

  Texans | Houston adds eight to roster    Sat Jan 21, 12:20 AM

The Houston Texans signed TE RaShaun Allen, DE Brandon Dunn, OT Laurence Gibson, RB Kenny Hilliard, WR Tevin Jones, LB Eric Lee, LB Shakeel Rashad and OG Chad Slade to Reserve/Future deals.

Footballguys view: We'll stubbornly keep watching Hilliard in super deep dynasty leagues. A seventh-round pick by the Texans in 2015, Hilliard has the receiving ability and top end speed to make plays. He's not creative or elusive as a runner, and his pass-protection needs a lot of work.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley underwent knee surgery    Fri Jan 20, 11:54 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley (knee) underwent a minor surgery following the end of the season to repair the meniscus in his right knee. He is expected to need only two to three weeks to fully recover.

Footballguys view: Kelley's procedure is considered minor, and he was able to play with the (likely meniscus) injury over the last two games of the season. He'll be the lead back for Washington in 2017, but Kelley is just a two-down banger with little receiving ability. Expect Washington to use a change-of-pace back behind Kelley.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Bell's gotten some rest this week, and he'll need it as we expect him to have a large role as the centerpiece of the Steelers offense. He's had 59 carries combined in the two Steelers playoffs games so far.

  Browns | Browns, Isaiah Crowell in 'stalemate'    Fri Jan 20, 03:53 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell has reached a 'stalemate' with the team regarding talks for a contract extension. The two sides were previously in 'heavy talks' to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: There's no need for the Browns to break out a blank check for Crowell as they have a restricted free agent tender to put on him. We'll see if the two sides can come together on a new deal.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell excused from practice    Thu Jan 19, 03:12 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (personal) was excused from practice Thursday, Jan. 19, because of personal reasons. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Bell will be able to play in the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: We're not worried and though Bell faces a tough matchup, he scoffs at tough matchups. Literally. Slow down any run and you can see him giggling on a touchdown. He's the best start in the NFL this weekend.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon excited about new coach    Thu Jan 19, 02:51 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon said he is happy that the team hired head coach Anthony Lynn because of Lynn's success as a running backs coach for many years. 'He obviously knows the game, so if he sees some wrinkles, I've got another set of eyes. Everyone's got some holes in their game, and he'll bring some wisdom to help get my game right when I need it. I've got someone who has been around the game for so long and coached some of the league's best players. He'll know how to help me. He's perfect for me, so I'm excited to get this thing rolling under him,' Gordon said.

Footballguys view: Lynn really got LeSean McCoy on the right track, and could mean good things for Gordon once the Chargers back gets healthy again. We'll be waiting to see how Gordon looks in the spring but we're cautiously optimistic.

  Giants | Adrian Peterson interested in Giants    Thu Jan 19, 12:37 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the New York Giants if he becomes available this offseason.

Footballguys view: So he wants to go from a team with a garbage offensive line to a team with a slightly less garbage offensive line? Peterson doesn't seem to have much left in the tank, but we might be interested in the right situation. This isn't it. The Giants need running back help, but they need an offensive line as well.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay an option for Adrian Peterson?    Thu Jan 19, 12:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he becomes available this offseason.

Footballguys view: Where's the upside for the Bucs here? Maybe Doug Martin isn't the answer anymore, or maybe Peterson won't be more than a backup. But we've seen him behind sketchy offensive lines and Peterson doesn't seem to have much in the tank anymore.

  Texans | Adrian Peterson interested in Houston    Thu Jan 19, 12:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Houston Texans if he becomes available this season.

Footballguys view: It's time for the Vikings and Peterson to part ways, but Houston--while close to home--would not benefit from an aging Peterson. Lamar Miller did well this year, so adding Peterson does nothing for this team, who needs a quarterback, not a running back.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman with mixed bag against GB    Thu Jan 19, 10:19 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 35 yards and a touchdown with four catches for 23 yards and another touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Packers run defense is still ranked pretty highly, but it's a bit of a paper tiger, feasting on teams which aren't very good. Ezekiel Elliott dropped 125 on this unit last week and while we expect Freeman to fall short of that mark, he should be able to find plenty of room to run on Sunday.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead ahead of schedule    Tue Jan 17, 03:29 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (knee) is six weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Chargers here. Woodhead is one of the most versatile players in the league, and he's a dangerous weapon for defenses to contend with. Fantasy owners know what to expect from him, even as a change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon. In PPR leagues, Woodhead has RB2 upside each week because of his role in the offense.

  Chargers | Branden Oliver should return    Tue Jan 17, 10:43 AM

Los Angeles Chargers restricted free-agent RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') has a good chance to return to the team.

Footballguys view: The Chargers could place a low-round tender on Oliver, and they'd likely be able to keep him at that price. When healthy, Oliver could work as a change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon. With Danny Woodhead set to be a free agent, the Chargers need a backup plan.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington to become free agent    Sun Jan 15, 06:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: The speedy back could use a change of scenery if he wants a larger role. He was the primary backup to David Johnson this year and had a career-low 96 yards rushing and a career-low 85 yards receiving. He may get a chance to compete for a starting role somewhere else in 2017. Ellington will have a lot to prove as the RB position is always cramped, will get more cramped with a great RB class coming in, and Ellington's injury history is also a concern.

  Cardinals | Chris Johnson set to be FA    Sun Jan 15, 05:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: At 31-years old, Johnson still feels like he has something to prove. Over the last two years, Johnson has played in only 15 games. In 2016, Johnson was limited to four games as a groin injury that required surgery cut his season short. He should get a shot somewhere, but it might not be until training camp.
