Redskins' Rob Kelley: Undergoes offseason knee surgery
Rob Kelley, RB, WAS
1/20/2017
News: Kelley has undergone offseason knee surgery, CSN reports.

It isn't clear when Kelley went under the knife, but the procedure was certainly a fix for the sprained knee he sustained in Week 16 against the Bears. Considering he's already back on his feet and walking around, the surgery should have no impact on Kelley next season.

Brandon Bolden
Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Listed as questionable
Brandon Bolden, RB, NE
1/20/2017
News: Bolden (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

Though Bolden is a core special-teamer for the Patriots, his fantasy value is minimal given that he is behind fellow RBs LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis and James White in the team's backfield pecking order.

Fitzgerald Toussaint
Steelers' Fitzgerald Toussaint: Listed as questionable for AFC title game
Fitzgerald Toussaint, RB, PIT
1/20/2017
News: Toussaint (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship game.

Though listed as a full practice participant all week, Toussaint nonetheless draws a questionable designation in advance of Sunday's contest. In any case, Toussaint's availability is of minor fantasy import, with veteran DeAngelo Williams also in the team's backfield mix behind top option Le'Veon Bell.

News: Bell missed practice Thursday for personal reasons, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Though Bell also missed practice Wednesday, Fowler relays that coach Mike Tomlin indicated that the running back's absence won't affect either his preparation or status for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Devonta Freeman
Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Totals 125 yards in divisional round win
Devonta Freeman, RB, ATL
1/17/2017
News: Freeman totaled 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's divisional round win over the Seahawks.

Freeman ran for 45 yards and a touchdown and hauled in four receptions for 80 yards in a break out game against Seattle. Although Tevin Coleman was the more effective runner, Freeman led the team with 80 receiving yards. He'll need to have another big game if the Falcons hope to earn a Super Bowl berth when they face the Packers on Sunday.

Tevin Coleman
Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Leads all rushers in playoff win
Tevin Coleman, RB, ATL
1/17/2017
News: Coleman ran for 57 yards on 11 carries and hauled in a touchdown reception in Saturday's playoff win over the Seahawks.

Coleman averaged 5.2 yards a carry on the ground and added three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown through the air. Paired with Devonta Freeman, the Falcons have a solid 1-2 punch at running back. Coleman will look to help Atlanta punch their ticket to the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Packers.

Analysis: 

Danny Woodhead
Chargers' Danny Woodhead: 'Ahead of schedule' in recovery
Danny Woodhead, RB, SD
1/17/2017
News: Woodhead is "six weeks ahead of schedule" in his recovery from an ACL tear in his right knee, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

As he approaches the four-month mark in his rehab, Woodhead has already progressed to cutting, which bodes well for his personal goal of full health by the start of the offseason program. Where he'll be situated in a few months remains to be seen, though, due to his upcoming unrestricted free agency. If the Chargers keep him around as a complement to workhorse RB Melvin Gordon, Woodhead will help lead the charge in their relocation to Los Angeles.

Justin Forsett
Broncos' Justin Forsett: Considering retirement
Justin Forsett, RB, DEN
1/16/2017
News: Forsett will consider retirement in the offseason, Mile High Sports reports.

Forsett spent the 2016 campaign with three different organizations, beginning with the Ravens, then the Lions and finally the Broncos. While his age is becoming a red-flag, Forsett still looked to have something left in Denver and could make for a quality veteran addition to a team lacking depth at running back, should he choose to return for a 10th season.

Analysis: 

Rod Smith
Cowboys' Rod Smith: Signs futures contract with Cowboys
Rod Smith, RB, DAL
1/16/2017
News: Smith signed a futures contract with the Cowboys on Monday, ESPN reports.

Smith converted to a fullback role ahead of the 2016 campaign but never made it through the entire season in Dallas. He appears set to square off with Keith Smith for what will likely be one roster spot in the offseason.

Analysis: 

Kenny Hilliard
Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Signs futures contract with Texans
Kenny Hilliard, RB, HOU
1/16/2017
News: Hilliard signed a futures contract with the Texans on Monday, The Houston Chronicle reports.

Hilliard, who finished the season on the Texans' practice squad, is yet to see any game action since being taken in the seventh round out of LSU back in 2015. He'll likely contend for No. 3 duties behind Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue.
