Nate Washington was held without a catch on three targets in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Dec 28 - 5:26 PM

Andrew Hawkins caught 4-of-7 targets for 33 yards Week 17 against the Ravens.

Hawkins finishes the year with 63 receptions for 824 yards and two touchdowns. Hawkins looked like a shrewd free-agent acquisition after catching 21 passes through the first three weeks of the season, but his play tailed off as the season progressed. A diminutive slot receiver, Hawkins does not score enough touchdowns to be viable in standard scoring, though he could have some upside in PPR formats if the Browns quarterback situation gets fixed before 2015.
Dec 28 - 5:24 PM

Chris Johnson rushed 10 times for 20 yards and lost three on his lone reception in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Johnson finishes his first year as a Jet with 155 carries for 663 yards (4.28 YPC) and two touchdowns. He added 24 receptions. Johnson's yards-per-carry average looks decent on paper, but was puffed up by a handful of longer runs. He is a classic boom-or-bust runner. Johnson is no better than a role player at this stage of his career, and faces a highly uncertain future in New York. He's 29 years old and owed $4 million in 2015. The Jets' next GM figures to cut ties with Johnson, at which point he would not be a highly-sought-after commodity on the free agent market.
Dec 28 - 5:24 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 2-of-5 targets for 53 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

Garcon closes the book on 2014 with 68 catches for 752 yards and three scores. All three totals are essentially half Garcon's 2013 numbers. That's due in large part to the fact that he drew just 105 targets one year after racking up 184. He's not a featured player in coach Jay Gruden's offense, and that could be a problem, as he's due $7.1 million in 2015. Garcon will likely be back with the Redskins, but it won't be as more than a mid-range WR3 for fantasy purposes, especially if a scattershot Robert Griffin III remains under center.
Dec 28 - 5:22 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 13 times for 29 yards and caught an eight-yard touchdown pass in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

The Dolphins' defense didn't even cover Ivory on his eight-yard touchdown catch in the first half. Pass catching really isn't a part of Ivory's game, but he again proved to be an above-average ball carrier for the Jets in 2014, turning 198 rushing attempts into 821 yards (4.15 YPC) and scoring seven all-purpose TDs. Turning 27 in March, Ivory will return to the Jets in 2015 at his cheap base salary of $2 million. Ivory's receiving limitations and past proneness to injury, however, will likely always render him a committee back.
Dec 28 - 5:21 PM

Ryan Griffin caught one pass for eight yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Griffin entered Week 17 having played 286 snaps as the Texans' No. 3 tight end behind Garrett Graham and C.J. Fiedorowicz. He saw increased reps late in the year with Graham battling an ankle injury. We like Griffin's skill set as a pass catcher but he's not much of a blocker. He caught just 10 passes for 91 yards and one touchdown on the season. He'll compete for a spot next summer.
Dec 28 - 5:18 PM

Branden Oliver had 14 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Chiefs.

Oliver started and played in red-zone situations over Donald Brown, scoring from one-yard out. He finishes his rookie-year with 160 carries, 853 total yards, and four touchdowns. With Ryan Mathews an impending free agent and Danny Woodhead coming off ankle surgery, Oliver has potential to see a bigger role in 2015.
Dec 28 - 5:18 PM

Geno Smith completed 20-of-25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

He added 18 rushing yards in easily the best game of his career. For the second straight year, Geno finished the season playing reasonably well, posting a 6:2 TD-to-INT ratio across his final four games. Smith's ability is not lacking, but his lack of consistency may render him a long-term backup in the league. Still only 24 years old, Geno is due under $1 million in 2015 salary and bonuses. He's going to lose his primary supporter in GM John Idzik, who is expected to be fired on Monday. A new Jets regime will determine whether Geno will have any chance at being New York's 2015 starter. He's only worth holding in deeper Dynasty leagues as a QB3/4.
