C.J. Fiedorowicz wasn't targeted in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.
The 65th overall pick in May's draft, Fiedorowicz's season can be chalked up as a disappointment, though tight ends take longer to develop than other positions. He played about 500 snaps, but caught just four passes for 28 yards and one touchdown. Fiedorowicz drew some loose Rob Gronkowski comparisons coming out of Iowa and into coach Bill O'Brien's offense, but he'll have to show a lot more. Fiedorowicz is still a guy to monitor in deeper Dynasty leagues.
DeSean Jackson caught 2-of-3 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.
Jackson's 69-yard score came in the first quarter. He caught a quick screen from Robert Griffin III, and was off to the races for a surprisingly-easy touchdown. Despite struggling through rough quarterback play and multiple minor injuries, D-Jax closes the book on his first year in Washington the owner of 56 catches for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns. His 20.9 yards per catch goes down as his best mark since 2010. Still only 28, Jackson will be back as a rock-solid WR2 in 2015.
Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught three passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Bears.
Primarily a special teamer, Thielen entered this game with just 69 receiving yards all year. His playing time was bumped when Jarius Wright left early with a back injury. Ordinarily, Thielen is the Vikings' No. 5 receiver.
Kendall Wright caught two passes for nine yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.
Damaris Johnson caught all three of his targets for 33 yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.
Claimed off waivers at final cuts, Johnson appeared in all 16 games for the Texans as their No. 3 receiver. It's not a high-volume position in the Houston passing offense, and Johnson finishes the season with a 31-331-1 receiving line. The Texans will likely try to address the position in the offseason. Johnson will be a restricted free agent. He'll likely be non-tendered then brought back at the minimum to compete for a roster spot in training camp.
Taylor Gabriel caught 3-of-7 targets for 66 yards Week 17 against the Ravens.
Gabriel had a brief concussion scare after being hung out to dry by Connor Shaw in the end zone late in the second quarter, but he returned to the game after halftime. An undrafted rookie out of Abilene Christian, Gabriel came out of nowhere to post a 36-621-1 line for the Browns in 2014, doing most of his damage with Josh Gordon sidelined early in the season. At only 5-foot-8, 167 pounds, Gabriel is too slight to be a volume receiver, but he could carve out a role as a situational deep threat for the Browns in 2015.
Kyle Rudolph was held catch-less in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.
We noticed Rudolph on an impressive block to spring Matt Asiata for a first-half run, but otherwise he was quiet coming off multiple injuries. Dating back to Notre Dame, Rudolph has been incredibly injury prone, and he missed seven more games this year, finishing with a disappointing 24-231-2 receiving line. Still only 25 years old, Rudolph is locked up long term in Minnesota after GM Rick Spielman handed him a new six-year, $37.5 million deal this past summer. Although Rudolph plays under typically tight end-friendly OC Norv Turner and in a promising passing attack, his Dynasty outlook is suspect. Rudolph is a quality red-zone target, but isn't quick enough to consistently defeat linebackers or safeties in coverage. He'll be better viewed as a TE2 in 2015 re-draft leagues.
Antonio Andrews caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.
Shonne Greene is not expected back next season and Bishop Sankey has proved wildly underwhelming. Yet the Titans declined to give Andrews any real chances, as the UDFA out of Western Kentucky finishes with zero carries. It's not a great sign for 2015 even if the depth chart clears out.
