 If the Steelers are to hang tight in this one expect a third consecutive 30 touch game from Bell. He's on another level than every other back in the league right now.
Tier 2

 After watching him compile 18 touches for 125 total yards against the Seattle Seahawks last week, there's no doubt that Freeman's heavy usage (17.6 touches per contest during the regular season) will continue. He also hit pay dirt against the Seahawks, which was Freeman's ninth touchdown in his last five games played at the Georgia Dome. A sagging Green Bay Packers defense, in its last three road contests, was gashed by enemy tailbacks for an average of 144.3 rushing yards and 1.3 rushing scores per outing. Freeman, during a Week 8 clash with Green Bay at the Georgia Dome, racked up 58 total yards and two touchdowns on 15 touches. All the numbers suggest that Freeman will cobble together a very nice fantasy outing.
Tier 3
3NEPPIT16621115013
 Blount missed two practices last week due to illness and he looks to rebound this week at home as he lost carries and snaps to Dion Lewis. Blount led all running backs with 18 rushing touchdowns so he is always a threat to score when New England gets near the goal line.
Tier 4
4ATLGBP83702217011
 Last week against the Seattle Seahawks, he amassed 79 total yards and one receiving score on 14 touches. Coleman, during the regular season, averaged 11.5 touches per contest, so his steady role in the Atlanta Falcons' timeshare backfield remains unchanged. By the way, the second-year pro's scoring grab against the Seahawks was Coleman's sixth visit to the end zone in his last seven games. A drooping Green Bay Packers defense, in its last three road contests, was shredded by opposing tailbacks for 144.3 rushing yards and 1.3 rushing touchdowns per outing. Coleman, in case you're wondering, missed the Falcons' Week 8 clash with the Packers due to a hamstring injury. Even though he plays second fiddle to Freeman, Coleman deserves fantasy RB1 consideration based on the matchup and the small number of running backs in action this weekend.
Tier 5
5NEPPIT280533209
 White saved his stat line catching his single target for 19 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown last week in the Divisional round. Expect more of the same this week as Blount and Lewis see the majority of the work out of New England's backfield.
6NEPPIT9370421509
 Lewis scored 18 of New England's point against Houston last week. He will be hard to sit after scoring 3 touchdowns last week, and being the first player in postseason history to have a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in the same game.

 No fantasy impact expected for the Conference Championship game.

 Last week against the Seattle Seahawks, the seldom-used pass-catching fullback posted a goose egg on one target. It wouldn't be out of the question for DiMarco to see some limited action versus the Green Bay Packers, but DiMarco, who touched the ball on offense just seven times during the regular season, should remain off your fantasy radar.
