NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports Mike Wallace was benched in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Jets for quitting on the team.

Wallace literally quit. After Charles Clay scored a touchdown late in the second quarter, Wallace reportedly "came off the field and told Joe Philbin he no longer wanted to play in the game." Understandably, Wallace's teammates were "very displeased" with Wallace's actions, and he spent the second half sitting on the bench with no one around him. Wallace was a largely effective wide receiver in 2014, particularly in the red zone, but it's now fair to question whether he'll be back with the Dolphins in 2015. He is owed $9.9 million in salary and bonuses.

Darren McFadden rushed four times for 13 yards and caught two passes for six yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

The Raiders tried to saddle up McFadden as a feature back again this season, but were predictably met with awful results. Clearly only a straight-line back that needs Hue Jackson's scheme to be successful, DMC finished with 156 carries for 534 yards (3.42 YPC) and two touchdowns. He was thoroughly outplayed by Latavius Murray, the likely 2015 starter, down the stretch. McFadden, now entering his age-28 season, will be met with a cold market in free agency once again this spring.

Lance Kendricks caught one pass for 17 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to Seattle.

The Rams’ red-zone specialist and blocking tight end, Kendricks is a valuable piece. He knows how to get open at the goal line and can make the tough catches. But Kendricks isn’t a high-volume pass-game target. The Rams will likely try to re-sign Kendricks as a free agent. He’s not going to break the bank.

49ers fired coach Jim Harbaugh.

The 49ers are refusing to call the transaction a firing, but instead a "(mutual agreement) to part ways." Whatever they want to call it, the 49ers are pushing out a coach with one year left on his contract. Harbaugh was a revelation in his first go-around as an NFL head coach, posting a 44-19-1 record across four seasons while reaching three NFC Championship Games. Harbaugh's squad lost Super Bowl XLVII to the Ravens, and were one play away from being world champions. It seems absurd that Harbaugh has lost his power struggle with GM Trent Baalke, but it's not secret that his personality is a grating one. Despite the winning, he just couldn't get along with his bosses. Harbaugh is widely rumored to be returning to the college ranks, and his alma mater Michigan. We should have official word some time in the next 48 hours. Whomever the 49ers hire next will be a downgrade, and likely a steep one.

Frank Gore rushed 25 times for 144 yards and caught two passes for five yards in the 49ers' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Gore lacks his old burst, but he still runs with amazing vision and toughness and regularly gets more than what's blocked. Entering free agency, this was likely Gore's last game as a 49er. He will turn 32 this offseason and remains one of the game's most reliable all-purpose backs. Gore finished the 2014 season with 1,106 yards and four touchdowns on 255 carries (4.34 YPC), adding 11 receptions. We suspect he'll find playing time in 2015, albeit probably not as a true workhorse.

Randall Cobb caught 4-of-5 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions.

It was a fitting end to what was easily the best regular season of Cobb's four-year career. He heads into the playoffs the owner of a 91/1,287/12 line. All three totals blow by his previous personal bests.

Jared Cook caught 3-of-7 targets for 37 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

He ended up reeling in 52 passes for 634 yards and three touchdowns on the year. Cook wraps up the second year of a five-year, $35 million contract having set a new career-high in catches, but he’s still vastly overpaid. When the Rams signed Cook they had visions of a spread offense that passed the ball. They’ve since become a run-heavy team. Cook has been asked to block much more than he imagined he would, but he’s become solid in that area. Cook will count over $8 million against the cap in 2015, but he’ll be back in St. Louis. Not strong in the red zone, Cook is as boom or bust as they come at tight end with far more busts than booms.
Dec 28 - 8:11 PM

Chris Givens caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

He hauled in just 11 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown on the season. Givens has fallen a long way since his strong rookie season in 2012. He was merely the No. 4/5 receiver on a Rams team starving for offense. Givens’ Dynasty stock is in the toilet. He’ll have to compete for a roster spot next summer.
