With Pierre Thomas (ribs) inactive, Travaris Cadet caught 2-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Bucs.
Cadet was the Saints' primary pass-catching back, but was actually out-gained 22-9 by Khiry Robinson through the air. With Thomas signed affordably for 2015, Cadet should be returning as a reserve, even if Mark Ingram is allowed to walk in free agency.
Robert Turbin rushed for 49 yards on 10 carries in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Rams.
He added one catch for 13 yards. Turbin got some early work with Marshawn Lynch appearing to get loose on the sideline. He's now rushed 10 times in back-to-back weeks. Lynch will get two weeks of much-needed rest with the Seahawks earning a first-round bye for the playoffs. Turbin will be his COP back.
Khiry Robinson rushed seven times for 15 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 17 win over the Bucs, adding two catches for an additional 22 yards.
With Pierre Thomas sidelined, Robinson got his most run since Week 5. The second year undrafted free agent closes the book on his sophomore campaign with 76 rushes for 362 yards (4.76 YPC) and three touchdowns. He added an 8/63/0 line as a receiver. With Mark Ingram headed to the open market, it's possible Robinson could be returning to a much bigger role next season. He's a strong hold in dynasty leagues.
Mychal Rivera caught two passes for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.
Rivera is not especially fast, strong or big. But he got a lot of volume from Derek Carr this season leading to a reasonable 58-534-4 line as an NFL sophomore. Of course, it took Rivera 93 targets to get there, a number that should be reduced if the Raiders can ever get some talent on their team. This is not a player we'd be chasing in 2015 fantasy circles.
Andrew Quarless was held without a catch on one target in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Lions.
Quarless heads into the playoffs the owner of a 29/323/3. If he makes an impact in the Divisional Round, it will be hard to see coming.
James Starks rushed five times for 26 yards in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Lions.
Eddie Lacy's caddie enters the playoffs on the back of a regular season where he averaged just 3.91 yards per carry. That's compared to 5.53 in 2013.
Julio Jones caught 4-of-8 targets for 58 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.
Jones was in and out of the game after reportedly aggravating a preexisting knee injury. That's the story of Jones' season, as he battled multiple lower-body ailments despite missing just one game. He still had the best season of his career, totaling 104 catches for 1,593 yards and six touchdowns. Legitimately dominant on the outside when at or near full health, Jones will be a surefire WR1 and first- or second-round pick in fantasy drafts next season. He has one year left on his contract at 25 years old. Matt Ryan also still has a ton of game left at 30.
Marcel Reece rushed one time for 11 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.
Criminally underutilized by the Raiders once again, Reece somehow finished with just 21 carries and 37 catches on the season. The team has simply wasted the prime years of a unique talent's career, as Reece is now 29 years old. We'll keep our fingers crossed that the next Oakland coaching regime can find a way to get him more involved, as Reece is under contract for just $2.55M in 2015.
