Ryan Griffin caught one pass for eight yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.
Griffin entered Week 17 having played 286 snaps as the Texans' No. 3 tight end behind Garrett Graham and C.J. Fiedorowicz. He saw increased reps late in the year with Graham battling an ankle injury. We like Griffin's skill set as a pass catcher but he's not much of a blocker. He caught just 10 passes for 91 yards and one touchdown on the season. He'll compete for a spot next summer.
Branden Oliver had 14 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Chiefs.
Oliver started and played in red-zone situations over Donald Brown, scoring from one-yard out. He finishes his rookie-year with 160 carries, 853 yards, and four touchdowns. With Ryan Mathews an impending free agent and Danny Woodhead coming off ankle surgery, Oliver has potential to see a bigger role in 2015.
Geno Smith completed 20-of-25 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.
He added 18 rushing yards in easily the best game of his career. For the second straight year, Geno finished the season playing reasonably well, posting a 6:2 TD-to-INT ratio across his final four games. Smith's ability is not lacking, but his lack of consistency may render him a long-term backup in the league. Still only 24 years old, Geno is due under $1 million in 2015 salary and bonuses. He's going to lose his primary supporter in GM John Idzik, who is expected to be fired on Monday. A new Jets regime will determine whether Geno will have any chance at being New York's 2015 starter. He's only worth holding in deeper Dynasty leagues as a QB3/4.
Jordan Cameron caught 3-of-6 targets for 41 yards Week 17 against the Ravens.
Cameron got loose down the middle for a 30-yard gain in the first half, but was held in check the rest of the game. It was a quiet finish to a disappointing season for Cameron. Dealing with a concussion and shoulder injury throughout the season, the contract-year tight end managed just 24 catches for 424 yards and two scores across 10 games in 2014. Turning 27 just before the 2015 season begins, Cameron is young enough and talented enough from someone to take a chance despite his long concussion history, but he will likely have to settle for a short-term, prove-it deal.
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.
