  Packers | Green Bay falls in NFC title game    Sun Jan 24, 06:24 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.

Footballguys view: Rodgers had a lot of chances to take control of this game in the second half after his team fell behind 18 points, but the Packers offense wasn't good enough in the red zone and Matt LaFleur chose to kick a field goal instead of going for it on fourth and goal at the 8, down 8 with about two minutes left. Jones has probably played his last down as a Packer, and Williams is also a free agent. Valdes-Scantling had a big game after playing only one snap the NFC title game last year. Adams impact on the game was not as big as expected and if anything Rodgers overreliance on him in the red zone hurt the team. The Packers will go back to the drawing board after getting one game from the Super Bowl two years in a row.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay headed for Super Bowl LV    Sun Jan 24, 06:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 24. It will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and the Bucs are the first team to play the game in their home stadium. RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 19 yards, RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards, WR Chris Godwin racked up five receptions for a team-best 110 yards on nine targets and WR Mike Evans added three receptions for 51 yards and a score on eight targets. WR Scott Miller also cashed in his three targets for two catches, 36 yards and a touchdown, while TE Rob Gronkowski was limited to one catch for 29 yards on his lone target. TE Cameron Brate picked up three grabs for 19 yards and a score, while WR Tyler Johnson rounded things out with one catch for 16 yards. LB Devin White led the way defensively with a staggering game-high 15 total tackles, including nine of the solo variety.

Footballguys view: Brady wasn't the reason the Bucs won, but he did have two good long passes to offset his three interceptions, which his defense did a great job of minimizing in the story of the outcome of the game. Leonard Fournette goes to the Super Bowl with Tom Brady after his 2017 Jaguars team was ousted by Brady. Godwin had great hands deep on his key play early, while Evans hands were more suspect, although the interception off of his hands in the red zone was more on Brady than him. Tampa Bay will be the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

  Rams | John Johnson may be too expensive    Sun Jan 24, 04:28 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent S John Johnson may be too expensive for the Rams to re-sign this offseason because they have limited salary cap space. The team could consider placing the franchise tag on Johnson.

Footballguys view: Standout corner Darious Williams will also be a restricted free agent and could draw a big offer sheet unless the Rams tender him at a first round level.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes to visit specialist    Sun Jan 24, 11:51 AM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (toe) was diagnosed with a case of turf toe on his left foot after last week's Divisional Round playoff game versus the Cleveland Browns. Even though he took the majority of snaps during practice this week, he is scheduled to see a specialist at the end of the season to determine if he'll need to undergo surgery.

Footballguys view: This could be a key to the game because Mahomes is at his most dangerous on the move and he likes to make lots of off platform throws that rely on precision.

Several NFL teams have expressed interest in him, including the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Staley is expected to speak with owner Jeffrey Lurie soon about the matter.

Footballguys view: Gannon was pivotal in the development of Kenny Moore and instant hit 2020 third-round pick Julian Blackmon, and got some good football out of Xavier Rhodes.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic's 589 receiving yards and 80 receptions trailed only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara among running backs in 2020.

Footballguys view: McKissic was signed to a two-year deal, so he'll be back with Antonio Gibson next year and should be drafted in every PPR league.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs lacked explosiveness    Sat Jan 23, 10:19 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' 3.9 yards per carry and three runs of 20-plus yards were both the fewest among the eight backs who reached 1,000 rushing yards in 2020.

Footballguys view: Jacobs went in the first round of some 2020 fantasy drafts on hopes of an even better year running the ball and newfound opportunity in the passing game but it never came together. He might be available in the third round in 2021 drafts.

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins led all running backs with an average of 6.0 yards per carry in 2020, and his 805 rushing yards and nine touchdowns were the most among backs with fewer than 150 carries.

  Browns | Myles Garrett tough to slow down    Sat Jan 23, 09:25 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett was double-teamed on 26 percent of his pass rush attempts in 2020 and ranked third in the NFL in pass rush win rate.

Footballguys view: Like Aaron Donald, Garrett was less than 100% for his team's playoff departure, which stings because the game was so close. The Browns were smart to lock him with a second deal before he got close to the open market.

  Rams | Aaron Donald in a league of his own    Sat Jan 23, 09:12 PM

Los Angeles DT Aaron Donald faced more double-teams when rushing the passer than any defensive tackle in the NFL in 2020 and posted pass rush wins at the highest rate of any player.

Footballguys view: Donald being less than 100% for the divisional round loss to the Packers was a big letdown for him and the potential for a more competitive game. He's the best in the game at his position and probably the best defensive player in the game period.

  Colts | Jacoby Brissett will have chance to start    Sat Jan 23, 07:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will be under consideration to be the starting quarterback in 2021, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'I don't want to discount Jacoby,' Ballard said. 'We still like Jacoby Brissett and think he's a good player. Let's not take Jacoby out of the mix completely here.'

Footballguys view: Brissett is a top end backup, but he might only be an adequate starter, which would be a disappointing route for a team in a Super Bowl window to take. Brissett has some value in 2QB/Superflex leagues, but in 1QB leagues he would be a pedestrian option at best.
