Riley Cooper caught two passes for 37 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants.

Just a blocker in this Chip Kelly offense, bad things happened all year when the ball went Cooper's way. So even though he signed a "five-year" contract last offseason, it was structured in a way the Eagles can get out cheaply. They are a decent bet to do just that, letting Jordan Matthews spread his wings as an outside receiver in two-wide sets. Cooper's 55-577-3 line is brutal for an every-down player in a Kelly offense, but it doesn't even say how bad he is.

Charles Sims rushed 18 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Tampa's Week 17 loss to the Saints, adding a six-yard reception.

Both the carries and yards were the most of Sims' rookie season, while the touchdown was his first. Sims spent the first eight weeks of the year stashed on injured reserve/designated to return as he recovered from a broken ankle. Once he returned, he averaged a pitiful 2.8 yards on 66 carries, but was slightly more effective as a pass catcher, notching 19 receptions across eight games. Sims will likely be tabbed for change-of-pace duties as a sophomore, but could earn a bigger role with an impressive preseason. Doug Martin's grip on between-the-tackles work is tenuous.

Cam Newton completed 10-of-16 passes for 114 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Panthers' division-clinching, 34-3, Week 17 win over the Falcons, adding 51 rushing yards and another touchdown on six carries.

The 7-8-1 Panthers end the regular season on a four-game winning streak and have clinched the No. 4 seed in the NFC. They'll host the Cardinals next weekend and have a good chance at pulling out the victory against the Ryan Lindley-led Arizona squad. On Sunday, the Panthers got off to a soaring start, jumping out to an early 10-0 lead with a field goal and touchdown on their first two possessions. Matt Ryan then tossed a pick-six before the Panthers then recovered a fumble at the Falcons' four-yard line. On the next play, Newton and the Carolina offensive line bullied their way into the end zone to stake themselves to a 24-3 lead. On Cam's touchdown pass, he found Ed Dickson in the flat in the front right corner of the end zone from five yards out. Cam is playing his best football of the season at the moment.

Jeremy Maclin caught three passes for 49 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants.

Coming off a 2013 ACL tear, the NFL market asked Jeremy Maclin to "prove it." So he signed a one-year deal with the Eagles and did just that. Maclin came out on fire with Nick Foles at the helm, recording eight of his 10 touchdowns and three of his four 100-yard days in the first eight games. His production tailed off with Mark Sanchez falling in love with Jordan Matthews, but that's no matter. Maclin, clearly healthy, is a borderline No. 1 wideout in the NFL and the Eagles will likely pay him as such this spring.

Zach Ertz caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants.

One of our favorite preseason breakout candidates at tight end, Ertz was not utilized in a fantasy friendly fashion. Chip Kelly treated him as a complementary piece instead of a featured player, limiting snaps to certain packages and not getting red-zone looks. We still saw major ability in the supremely athletic Ertz, who had a 15-catch game in Week 15 and finishes with 58-702-3. His 2015 offseason progress in the scheme will be well worth watching as he heads into his third NFL season.

Doug Martin rushed 19 times for 108 yards in the Bucs' Week 17 loss to the Saints.

Martin wasn't targeted in the passing game. Astoundingly, the 100-yard game was Martin's first of the year. That includes yards from scrimmage. Martin showed some juice in the open field, but his game-best, 45-yard run in the second quarter likely would have gone for a 52-yard touchdown two years ago. Banged up for long stretches this season, Martin ends up with a 3.68 YPC. He's the owner of a 3.63 mark on 261 carries since his electrifying rookie year. Martin will be the favorite for Tampa's between-the-tackles duties in 2015, but it's not a given. He's no longer a serious factor in the passing game.
Dec 28 - 7:16 PM

Jordan Matthews caught eight passes for 105 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants.

Possibly working with impending free agent Mark Sanchez for the last time, Matthews celebrated the occasion with a team-high 10 targets. It caps an eye-opening campaign for a 6-foot-3 rookie that exclusively played out of the slot. Matthews finishes with 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns, showing far more chemistry with Sanchez than likely 2015 starter Nick Foles. That's not a big concern though, as Mathews could very well take over on the outside for Riley Cooper in two-wide sets and he'll have the whole offseason to work with Foles. Matthews, clearly a plus player in one of the league's best offenses, has major 2015 upside.
Dec 28 - 7:13 PM

Darrel Young caught a nine-yard reception in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

An occasional vulture of a fullback, Young closes the book on 2014 having rushed nine times for 22 yards and three scores. Signed for $1.025 million next season, Young should be back to pave running lanes for Washington.
