Tim Wright caught 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

Even with Rob Gronkowski inactive, Wright could not get anything going against the Bills stout tight-end defense. A glorified wide receiver, Wright could be an intriguing fantasy option if given the targets, but he has not played consistently enough this season to be a reliable option.

Toby Gerhart rushed for eight yards on four carries in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

He ends the year with 326 yards and two touchdowns on 101 carries (3.2 YPC), adding 20 catches for 186 scoreless yards. Signed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract last March, Gerhart entered the year as the starter. But thanks to ineffectiveness due to lower-body injuries, Gerhart was passed on the depth chart by Denard Robinson. Gerhart fell back into a sparingly-used third-down role behind Robinson before regaining the starting job after Robinson injured his foot prior to Week 15. Gerhart proved he’s nothing more than a complementary piece of a backfield. With a non-guaranteed $3 million salary in 2015, Gerhart is no lock to be back in Jacksonville.

Matt Forte gained 51 yards on 17 carries and caught eight passes for 23 yards in the Bears' Week 17 loss to the Vikings.

With 102 receptions, Forte broke Larry Centers' record (101) for running back catches, which had stood since 1995. On the ground, Forte finished with 1,038 yards on 266 carries (3.90 YPC). He scored ten all-purpose touchdowns. Although his rushing numbers diminished this year, nothing on Forte's tape suggests he's in decline. He is 29 years old, however, and the Bears may need to begin thinking about a running back of the future. Forte will enter his 2015 contract year owed nearly $8 million. He's worth it.

Danny Amendola caught 4-of-7 targets for 24 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

Given a full run of snaps with Julian Edelman (concussion) sidelined, Amendola answered by averaging six yards a catch. Amendola did have a solid punt return to set up the Patriots' only second-half score, but he is being paid way too much to be a glorified punt returner. Amendola will contribute in the playoffs, but he has likely just played his final regular season game with the Patriots.

Drew Brees completed 24-of-38 passes for 281 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in New Orleans' 23-20, Week 17 win over the Bucs.

Dec 28 - 4:15 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught three passes for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win at Tennessee.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned, so Nicks' volume was capped at six targets. His "prove it" season with the Colts turned out to be a mess, as Nicks looked washed up en route to a 38-405-4 line. He'll head to the playoffs as a bit player that rotates with Donte Moncrief.
Dec 28 - 4:15 PM

Coby Fleener caught five passes for 56 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-10 Week 17 win a Tennessee.

Fleener once again ate with Dwayne Allen (knee) sidelined. He was featured in the red zone, working as the primary read on a back-side slip play for a 7-yard score and then coming down with a 8-yard jump ball from Matt Hasselbeck in the fourth quarter. Although Fleener lacks game awareness and physicality, he has wideout-like athletic ability in a tight end's frame. He finishes his third NFL season with 51 catches for 774 yards and eight touchdowns.
Dec 28 - 4:11 PM

Blake Bortles completed just 14-of-33 passes for 117 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Jaguars' 23-17, Week 17 loss to the Texans.

He ends the season having completed 58.9 percent of his passes for 2,908 yards and an 11:17 TD:INT ratio, adding 419 yards rushing. Bortles started his rookie season as the backup to Chad Henne, but after Henne struggled badly to move the offense the first 2.5 games, Bortles was inserted under center. He proved to be extremely raw, tossing picks all over the place and taking sacks at will. Bortles got better to close out the year, but he’s going to need to take another major step forward. He was Pro Football Focus’ worst quarterback of 2014 by a large margin, behind guys like Derek Carr and Geno Smith. Bortles is a lock to keep the starting job, obviously. He won’t enter next season as anything more than a low-end QB2.
