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.
49ers WR Quinton Patton's lone Week 17 target went for a 35-yard catch.
Patton ends his sophomore NFL season with just three catches. He played behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd. Patton was a fairly intriguing prospect coming out of Louisiana Tech for his route-running chops, but he will likely enter 2015 training camp on the roster bubble.
Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-8 targets for 86 yards in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions.
Tavon Austin caught two passes for 13 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks, rushing one time for one yard.
As a sophomore, Austin caught 31 passes for 242 scoreless yards and rushed 35 times for 224 yards and two touchdowns. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Austin made some strides after a slow start to the season, but he’s shown nothing that gives us any hope that he’ll be more than a gadget player. Austin is well off the fantasy radar in the Rams’ spread-the-wealth offense that lacks a true weapon at receiver. Austin holds no redraft value and his Dynasty stock is very low.
Latavius Murray rushed 10 times for 37 yards and caught four passes for 60 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.
Calvin Johnson caught 4-of-11 targets for 39 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' Week 17 loss to the Packers.
Megatron closes out the regular season with six touchdowns in eight games since returning from his ankle injury. For the year, Johnson posted a 71/1,077/8 line despite missing three games. He'll be a matchup nightmare for Brandon Carr and company in the Wild Card round.
Vernon Davis managed one catch for nine yards in the 49ers' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.
A monumental disappointment in both fantasy and real life this season, Davis managed a 2014 receiving line of 26-245-2 while falling off precipitously as a blocker. When Davis doesn't even have his blocking to fall back on, it's fair to question his value to an NFL team. We'd hate to be Dynasty league owners of Davis, who turns 31 in January. It's entirely possible Davis' time as a fantasy asset is over.
Stedman Bailey caught 1-of-2 targets for 17 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.
Bailey ends his sophomore season with a 30-435-1 line. Bailey was a preseason and training camp star for the Rams but earned a four-game suspension to open the season, putting him behind the eight ball when he was eligible to return in Week 6. It took Bailey a few weeks to get his feet wet again, but once Brian Quick went down with a season-ending shoulder injury midway through the year, it was Bailey and Kenny Britt on the outside for the Rams. Bailey isn’t very big, but has a good pair of hands. He’ll be a nice complementary piece for the Rams, but is best suited for a slot role as a No. 3 receiver.
