Brandon Gibson secured 3-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.
Gibson spent most of the 2014 season as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver behind Mike Wallace, Jarvis Landry, and Brian Hartline. Although Gibson has a place in the league -- he is a functional at multiple receiver positions -- the contract ex-Fins GM Jeff Ireland gave him before 2013 proved to be a major mistake. Owed roughly $3.25 million in 2015, 27-year-old Gibson is a likely offseason salary cap casualty. Expect Gibson to resurface as a No. 3 or 4 wideout elsewhere.
C.J. Spiller rushed five times for 17 yards Week 17 against the Patriots.
Spiller's disastrous contract year ends with a whimper. Spiller finishes 2014 with just 425 total yards and one total score across nine healthy games. Once a big play waiting to happen, Spiller only managed six runs of 10 or more yards in 2014 and only 10 total plays over 10 yards despite touching the ball 97 times. Two years into coach Doug Marrone's and OC Nathanial Hackett's reign in Buffalo, it is clear the duo have no idea how to properly use Spiller, often using him as a between-the-tackles battering ram instead of getting him in the wide open spaces where he thrives. A potential free agent, Spiller needs a change of scenery to jump start his floundering career.
Aaron Rodgers (calf) returned to the Packers' Week 17 game against the Lions midway through the third quarter.
Rodgers ended up missing two series after aggravating his left-calf injury late in the first half. His mobility will be extremely limited on a cold day in Green Bay, but it's a huge boost for a Packers team fighting for a first-round bye. Rodgers departed after staking the Pack to a 14-0 lead, but returns with the scored tied at 14.
Kenny Stills caught 5-of-7 targets for 82 yards in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Bucs.
Rueben Randle caught six passes for 158 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.
Charles Clay secured 5-of-6 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.
Clay finishes his contract year with 58 receptions for 605 yards and three touchdowns. He battled a knee injury for most of the season and struggled to establish a consistent role in first-year OC Bill Lazor's system. When healthy, Clay is one of the league's most underrated H-back/tight ends. He turns 26 in February. If the Fins let Clay hit the free agent market, he should generate plenty of interest because of his versatility. The Fins would be smarter to "buy low" and lock up Clay for the next few seasons.
Dontrelle Inman caught five passes for 79 yards in Week 17 against the Chiefs.
Inman was the No. 3 receiver with Keenan Allen sidelined. He had at least 70 yards over the final two games and will be a candidate for a bigger role next season. A former CFL star, Inman should return as one of San Diego's top four wideouts.
Dolphins TE Dion Sims secured 2-of-4 targets for 15 yards in Miami's Week 17 loss to the Jets.
Sims finishes his second NFL season with 24 catches, 284 yards, and a pair of TDs. He flashed quality starting-caliber ability in spot starts when Charles Clay battled a knee injury this year. Also a plus blocker, Sims is one of the NFL's top No. 2 tight ends. With Clay headed for offseason free agency, Sims could be a sneaky low-end TE1 in 2015 if Clay is allowed to walk.
