News broke Wednesday afternoon that the Packers will hire former Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, who spent nine years working for the Packers before going to Miami, as their offensive coordinator.

Philbin started in Green Bay in 2003 as an assistant offensive line coach, and eventually worked his way up to being the team's offensive coordinator. He served in that role from 2007 through 2011 before going to Miami. He lasted four years with the Dolphins before being replaced by Adam Gase, and has spent the last two seasons working as an assistant head coach and offensive line coach with the Colts.

During his time as Green Bay's OC, the Packers routinely had offenses that ranked near the top of the league in yards, points, and Football Outsiders' offensive DVOA.

Fantasy Impact:

Mike McCarthy is likely to keep the play-calling duties.

This won't change things much in Miami since Adam Gase is still expected to oversee the offense and call the plays.

LeSean McCoy will battle to get ready for the Buffalo Bills first playoff game of since Jan. 8, 2000.

The running back was carted off in the third quarter of the Week 17 win over the Miami Dolphins with a sprained ankle.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that McCoy has a chance to play in Sunday's playoff game, but would likely be gimpy and not be 100 percent if he's able to give it a go.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say McCoy will get round-the-clock treatment on the ankle in hopes to get on the field Sunday afternoon in Jacksonville. Rapoport noted that playing in the Sunday game -- as opposed to the Saturday matchup -- helps McCoy's chances of returning for the postseason.
