Description: Wide receiver Justin Blackmon will return to the Jaguars in 2015 according to FOX Sports' Alex Marvez.
Insight: Just as Josh Gordon fails another drug test, it is announced that Blackmon will likely return. General manager Dave Caldwell said in December he heard good things about Blackmon's substance abuse recovery, but there is still no specific date for reinstatement. If he does return, Blackmon will be a big boost for quarterback Blake Bortles.
Description: Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon failed a test for alcohol and will be facing a year-long suspension according to Profootballtalk's Mike Florio.
Insight: To the common fan, alcohol doesn't seem like as big of a deal as marijuana, but Gordon was prohibited from alcohol consumption as part of his DUI treatment plan from July. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the NFL substance abuse policy is "extremely strict" and clear, so Gordon will wait until 2016 to be back on the field. He will be 25 by then. Gordon led the league in receiving at 22.
Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins should be on the sleeper watch for next season.
Insight: New Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter praised the talent he has to work with on offense in Tampa Bay and included Seferian-Jenkins. Koetter worked with Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta for two years, so he definitely knows how to incorporate a big, pass-catching tight end. Seferian-Jenkins is 6-foot-5 and 262 pounds with blazing speed. For owners who love to take flier tight ends late in drafts, this might be the best guy to take next season.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning plans to return for another season according to Denver Post's Woody Paige.
Insight: Paige is a well-respected Denver sports journalist and cites "three trustworthy sources" in his report. Paige says as long as Manning passes his annual spring physical, he will be back with the team in 2015 under new coordinator Gary Kubiak. That should make all fantasy owners happy.
Description: Oakland hired Bill Musgrave to be their offensive coordinator.
Insight: Musgrave was the Eagles quarterback coach in 2014 and was the Vikings offensive coordinator under coach Leslie Frazier. Quarterback Nick Foles took major steps back with Musgrave after his breakout season with former quarterback coach Bill Lazor, who became the Dolphins offensive coordinator this season. One good news for fantasy owners, Musgrave used Adrian Peterson a lot in Minnesota, so that could be great for Latavius Murray owners.
Description: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's MRI indicated he has a sprained left elbow according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
Insight: As expected, Sherman suffered an injury in his left arm. He could move the arm during the second part of the second half, but he played through the injury and plans to do the same versus the Patriots. It will be interesting to see how much Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tests the potentially one-armed Sherman.
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led New England to a victory Sunday versus Indianapolis.
Insight: Brady was on target, going 23-of-35 for 226 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also had three carries for 13 yards. Brady will look to win his fourth Super Bowl during his sixth appearance.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson somehow overcame four interceptions, and lead a furious comeback Sunday versus Green Bay.
Insight: He threw for 209 yards and rushed for 25 more. Wilson came alive in fourth quarter and overtime, where he rushed for a score, and ended the game on a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against Seattle.
Insight: You were expecting some thing else? Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He'll be put to a much tougher test today against Seattle and some ugly weather.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice Thursday.
Insight: Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He has a much tougher assignment this week against the best defense in football - Seattle.
Description: For those keeper league owners assuming that Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is a top keeper option - beware.
Insight: Murray is a free agent so may not be running behind the strong Dallas offensive line next season. This season he was a workhorse, rushing the ball a total of 436 times including the playoffs and catching 61 balls. That's 497 touches! He could be overworked too.
Description: Rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood could see additional snaps with Paul Richardson done for the season due to a torn ACL.
Insight: Norwood didn't see much action this season, catching just nine balls for 102 yards and zero touchdowns, but could be the No. 3 option behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Or the Seahawks could go more double tight end formations.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning played with a torn right quad over the last month, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: This would explain his significant drop in production. There could be a lot of movement in the front office with Denver, but assuming Manning returns the offense should be potent once again next season.
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas looked poised to have another big day versus the Colts after the first drive, but had just an average fantasy day overall.
Insight: Thomas made a 32-yard catch on the opening offensive drive for Denver that brought the Broncos down to the two-yard line. On the next play, Peyton Manning targeted Thomas again in the end zone, and defensive holding was called on the incomplete pass. Remember, Thomas destroyed the Colts in the red zone during the Week 1 contest with three touchdown catches. That drive, however, ended with a Demaryius Thomas touchdown catch, and it was the only one of the day for Denver. J. Thomas finished with six catches and 53 yards.
Description: Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas had a decent fantasy day with five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Thomas caught the touchdown on the first offensive possession of the game, so he did little after that. Thomas also had two drops on screen passes in the second quarter, which owners say too often from him this season. There are a lot of question marks heading into the 2015 fantasy season for Thomas: will he be back in Denver and will Peyton Manning be the team's signal caller?
Description: Colts tight end Dwayne Allen had four catches for 30 yards and a touchdown in the AFC Division round versus the Broncos.
Insight: Allen caught all four of his targets from Andrew Luck and scored a touchdown halfway through the second quarter to give Indianapolis the lead for good. With his size, Allen is a great target for Luck in the red zone.
Description: Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had seven catches to lead all Denver receivers.
Insight: Peyton Manning was really trying to get Sanders the ball on a deep pattern in the second quarter, but nothing was working. Sanders led the team with 15 targets but caught fewer than half of them for 46 yards. It was a disappointing end to an otherwise great first season in the Mile High City.
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving on Sunday.
Insight: Broncos top cornerback Aqib Talib could not cover Hilton, and Denver had to switch its coverages to stop Hilton. It will be interesting to see how Hilton does on Revis Island next week. Hilton finished with four catches and 72 yards versus Denver.
Description: Broncos running back C.J. Anderson carried the Denver offense at times on Sunday, but it wasn't enough.
Insight: Anderson gained 91 yards on 19 carries and had 29 more yards in the passing game. Anderson displayed great individual effort when he picked up a huge first down on the last play of the third quarter. On the play, the Colts had Anderson wrapped up for a five-yard loss, but Anderson wiggled out of the tackle and was able to pick up more than a yard. Just prior to that, Anderson helped the Broncos avoid a 15-yard penalty when he pushed offensive lineman Orlando Franklin away from the Colts defenders. Despite Anderson's intangibles, the Broncos lost, 24-13.
Description: Colts running back Dan Herron had 23 carries and gained 63 yards versus the Broncos.
Insight: Herron had a terrible rushing average, but he gave the Colts just enough balance for Andrew Luck to have a lot of success in the passing game. Indianapolis didn't even dress Trent Richardson, so Herron is clearly the best fantasy option in the Colts backfield.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not look like himself, throwing for just 187 yards and a touchdown versus the Colts.
Insight: Credit the Colts defense for an excellent game plan. They tackled so well that the Broncos wide receiver screen game gained very few yards, and the down the field passing game for Denver was nonexistant. This could have very well been Manning's final game. Not the way fantasy owners or Broncos fans would like him to go out, but if it is his final game, there are a lot of regular season memories for fantasy owners. Unfortunately for Manning, not enough postseason memories.
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten led the team with six catches and 71 yards in the NFC Division round versus the Packers.
Insight: Witten looked upset after the loss being that he is closing in on the end of his great career, and he still has not played in the Super Bowl. There are a lot of question marks going into next season for Dallas, but Witten should still be there for them.
Description: Packers rookie receiver Davante Adams had a career day versus the Cowboys.
Insight: Adams really only had one good game this season when he had six catches for 121 yards versus the Patriots in Week 13. Adams displayed great route running and the ability to make people miss in space. He could be the key next week against the Seahawks secondary that will likely take away Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson.
Description: Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had a near career defining catch against the Packers in the NFC Division round.
Insight: On fourth-and-two at the Packers 32-yard line, Tony Romo threw deep to his favorite receiver and Bryant jumped over Sam Shields to make a magnificent catch. Upon further review, the officials reviewed the call and rule Bryant did not maintain control of the ball all the way to the ground. It appeared to be the correct call, but in our opinion, it's a dumb rule. Therefore, Bryant finished with just three catches for 38 yards.
Description: Packers wideout Randall Cobb had eight catches for 116 yards against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Insight: Cobb led the Packers in catches and was a yard behind Davante Adams for the team lead in receiving yards. He also caught the game-sealing first down. Cobb and the Packers have a tough matchup against the best secondary in the league next week.
Description: Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray had 25 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Division Round.
Insight: Murray also had a costly fumble at the beginning of the second half that led to Packers points. Murray had an excellent season, and it will be interesting to see if he can stay healthy for a second straight season.
Description: Packers running back Eddie Lacy ran very well in the NFC Division Round versus the Cowboys.
Insight: Lacy had 19 carries for 101 yards. Green Bay stuck to their strategy of running Lacy early on the first drive and then save him for the second half. He has a tough matchup next week, but a Packers Super Bowl appearance may depend on how successful Lacy is in Seattle next week.
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo attempted just 19 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns versus the Packers.
Insight: It was a slow start for the Dallas running game, but the Cowboys did have 28 rushing attempts for 145 yards. Romo threw when needed and much like in the regular season, he had two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf on Sunday.
Insight: Rodgers went 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He also led the Packers to a comeback victory to reach the NFC Championship for the first time since 2010. That game, however, will not be at the friendly confides of Lambeau Field and it will be against the top defense in the league.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) is active as expected and should be started as always.
Insight: It should be noted, however, that the Packers also activated both Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien just in case. Rodgers has played like a fantasy MVP, particularly at home where he will be today.
Description: Seahawks speedster Paul Richardson injured a knee in the third quarter of the Division playoff game against Carolina.
Insight: It's being called a sprained knee, but we await word of how severe. He hasn't done much for fantasy owners this season (29-271-1) therefore his availablilty for the NFC chamampionship game shouldn't change many lineups.
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had four receptions for 58 yards on Saturday versus the Seahawks.
Insight: Seattle pretty much bottled up Olsen although he was able to make some impressive catches. Olsen clearly had his best season in 2014 and will be a top-five option for the tight end position in 2015 barring any injury setbacks or big changes on offense.
Description: Seahawks tight end Luke Willson is becoming quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite target.
Insight: During the Seahawks seven-game winning streak, the Wilson-Willson connection has become a lot more prevalent. Willson led the team with four catches and had 68 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a key third down conversion at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Willson was able to break a few tackles and find the end zone.
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin scored two touchdowns versus the Seahawks in the NFC Division Round.
Insight: Benjamin had a lot of success backup cornerback Tharold Simon covering him for parts of the game. Benjamin had seven catches on 10 targets with 75 yards in addition to the two scores. It's too bad the Panthers couldn't take advantage of this matchup any further.
Description: Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse had three catches for 129 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Division Round against the Panthers.
Insight: Kearse made a one-handed catch in the middle of the second quarter that he took all the way for a 63-yard touchdown. It was one of many explosive plays for Seattle. Kearse caught all three of his targets.
Description: Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart had another big game to finish off the 2014 season against the Seahawks.
Insight: Stewart ran well the last five games but not against any defense at the level of Seattle, so his 5.4 yards per carry average was somewhat surprising. He had 13 carries for 70 yards, but Carolina could not stick with the run after falling behind in the fourth quarter.
Description: Much like the whole season, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was really good at times and at other times, he made some really bad decisions against the Seahawks.
Insight: Newton was 23-of-36 with two touchdowns and kept the Panthers in it for much of the game, but Newton also threw two costly picks. One of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown. Newton nearly threw a couple more picks in the game as well. Hopefully he gets healthy for next season and can be more consistent in 2015.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had another tremendous playoff outing.
Insight: Wilson was 15-of-22 with 268 passing yards and three touchdowns. He also added 23 carries on the ground. Wilson and the Seahawks are the first defending champion to win a playoff game since the Patriots in 2005.
Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels caught four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots on Saturday.
Insight: Joe Flacco hit 10 different receivers versus the Patriots, but he targeted Daniels 11 times, which was more than any other receiver. Particularly on the last drive, Flacco was really trying to force the ball to his tight end.
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman led the team with eight catches and threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola against the Ravens on Saturday.
Insight: Edelman's first pass attempt in the NFL went for a 51-yard score to Amendola to tie the game at 28 with four and a half minutes left in the third quarter. It was a perfectly designed play as Edelman took Tom Brady's backwards pass to the left and then threw the ball down the sideline to a wide open Amendola. Edelman also had 74 receiving yards.
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Joe Flacco did not concentrate on any one receiver, so no pass catcher for the Ravens stood out statistically. Smith caught the second touchdown of the game, so his owners were still pleased with the performance since he found the end zone.
Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola picked a great time to have his best game in New England.
Insight: Amendola caught five passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens in the AFC Division Round. The second touchdown pass came from Julian Edelman on a trick play in the third quarter. This kind of performance is exactly what the Patriots were hoping to get from Amendola when they signed him to replace Wes Welker.
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught seven passes for 108 yards and a touchdown to help lift the Patriots over the Ravens, 35-31, on Saturday.
Insight: Like most weeks, the defense had no one to stop Gronkowski, so Tom Brady threw it his way a lot in the second half. Gronkowski caught his touchdown halfway through the third quarter with New England trailing by 14 points at the time. The Patriots scored the 21 of the final 24 points to erase a 14-point deficit.
Description: Ravens running back Justin Forsett had 24 carries for 129 yards against the Patriots.
Insight: Forsett averaged 5.4 yards per attempt, which is exactly what he averaged during the regular season. Forsett gave the Ravens balance, but the defense could not stop the Patriots passing game in the second half.
Description: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw four touchdowns against the Patriots in the AFC Division Playoffs, but his two interceptions doom him and the Ravens.
Insight: Flacco was 28-of-45 for 292 yards in addition to the four scores and two interceptions. Flacco ended his incredible streak of five straight postseason games with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady put his team on his back and carried them to a victory in the AFC Division Round against the Ravens.
Insight: Brady threw 50 pass attempts, completing 30 of them for 367 yards and three touchdowns. He did have one costly interception at the end of the first half, which led to a Ravens touchdown, but that was the only blemish of Brady's night. The winning touchdown throw put Brady ahead of Joe Montana for the most touchdown passes in the postseason.
Description: Jets running back Chris Johnson was arrested Friday night for carrying a weapon in Orange County, Florida.
Insight: It is a second-degree misdemeanor, so Johnson's status should be be affected next season. However, this could give the Jets an excuse to release him. They would save $3.75 million against the cap, if they decide to do so.
Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis could be cut this offseason, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
Insight: After posting just 26 catches for 245 yards and two touchdowns, Davis does not warrant the $5 million he is owed next season. At 31-years-old, his best days are clearly behind him, but he still could help another team out.
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas has practiced all week, but there are conflicting reports as to the health of his ankle.
Insight: Some say it's less than 100 percent even with the week off. It should be noted that he torched the Colts in Week 1 for 104 yards and three touchdowns and Indianapolis gave up the fourth-most points to opposing tight ends this season.
Description: Broncos running back C.J. Anderson has played through an ankle issue and he will be ready to go in the playoffs.
Insight: Anderson has put together a great resume over the last six games rushing for 648 yards and eight touchdowns. he's also caught 33 passes over the last nine games including two more scores. He appears to fit the Manning offense perfectly.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (thigh) has been practicing in full this week.
Insight: Manning's participation in Sunday's game was never in question, but he's better when he gets in his practices. He was very average down the stretch as the team featured the run game because of some blocking issues in front of Manning.
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has gotten in a full week of practice so his back injury should not be part of the equation for the Seahawks playoff game against Carolina.
Insight: Lynch finished the regular season with his second-best rushing total - 1,306 yards and a career-best 13 rushing touchdowns, plus four receiving scores. He should see a huge workload against the Panthers.
Description: Panther defensive end Star Lotulelei broke his foot in the Wild Card victory over the Cardinals on Saturday and will miss the rest of the season according to NFL Network.
Insight: This is a big loss for the Panthers defense that has been playing very well the last five weeks. Expect the Seahawks to take advantage and attack Marshawn Lynch at the void Lotulelei leaves behind.
Description: 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will work out with Kurt Warner in Phoenix this offseason according to The Sacramento Bee.
Insight: This is a smart move for Kaepernick, who is coming off his worse season as a pro. He threw for a career-high 3,369 yards but his touchdowns went down to 19 and his interceptions went up to 10. His yards per attempt also plummeted down to 7.0 and his sacks skyrocketed to 52. Kaepernick was also awful in the second half of games in 2014 as his passer rating was nearly 30 points lower in the third and fourth quarter of games. This should definitely help Kaepernick improve although the possibility of losing Michael Crabtree this offseason would be a setback.
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas said the bye week did his ankle a lot of good, according to Larry Hartstein of cbssports.
Insight: Considering Thomas was a non-factor for the final over the final six games of the season (five receptions, 66 yards, zero touchdowns), it could signal his return to a first half production level.
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo came up big during Sunday's victory over the Lions.
Insight: He threw for 293 yards, two touchdowns, and did not turn the ball over. Romo led the game-winning drive with a touchdown pass to Terrance Williams with 2:32 left in the game. He will head to Green Bay next week.
Description: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck came up big Sunday versus Cincinnati.
Insight: He went 31-of-44 for 376 yards and one score, and did not turn the ball over. Luck also rushed for 18 more yards. For owners in playoff leagues, Luck will be a fine option next week in Denver.
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton still could not earn his first playoff win.
Insight: Dalton went 18-of-35 for 155 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions, and a fumble lost. He also rushed for 34 yards. Dalton will enter next season as more of a QB2 after accumulating 19 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 2014.
Description: Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham will miss Sunday's playoff game, according to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network.
Insight: Gresham had scored in each of the last three games and was more valuable with A.J. green on the sidelines. Now he'll join him making Kevin Brock the starter and Mohamed Sanu even more valuable.
Description: As expected, Steelers tight end Heath Miller picked up some of the slack with Le'Veon Bell out of the lineup.
Insight: Miller saw nine targets, catching six balls for 76 yards, but lost a costly fumble in the second half. He's always a low-end fantasy option who has a couple of big days every season, but is never an elite choice.
Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown finished his season like he started it, on fire.
Insight: Brown, who caught nine balls for 117 yards, was one of the most consistent players in all of fantasy football. It could have been much better too, if his knee didn't land at the 1-yard line on a 44-yard reception. The Steelers star led all receivers in the regular season with 129 receptions for 1,698 yards and scored 14 times.
Description: With Le'Veon Bell declared out for the game against Balitmore, running back Josh Harris had a chance to show what he could do, but it wasn't much.
Insight: Ben Tate actually started the game, but Harris led the team in rushing attempts (9) and yards gained (25). He also caught two balls for six yards, but those numbers are obviously not "Bell-like."
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. posted his first 100-yard game since Week 6 in the first round of the playoffs against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Smith caught five of his seven targets for 101 yards. After about a two-month lull, Smith has become a force again starting last week with eight catches for 90 yards and now this effort. It will be key to next week's fantasy value to figure out whether Darrelle Revis will be assigned to Torrey Smith or Steve Smith.
Description: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is proving to be a very good playoff quarterback, particularly in the first round where he improved to 6-0 Saturday.
Insight: Flacco wasn't great, but mistake-free football and a couple of touchdown passes is always a solid fantasy effort. He threw for 259 yards and has rediscovered Steve Smith Sr. to go along with Torrey Smith and TE Owen Daniels.
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not do much during Saturday's victory over Arizona.
Insight: He had four catches for 33 yards on seven targets. Benjamin was involved early, but after Carolina took a healthy lead, the team did not pass as much. He had 1,008 yards and nine scores during his rookie season.
Description: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) did not practice on Thursday.
Insight: Look for Bell to be a game-time decision, but even if he is active, there is a chance he will be very limited. Josh Harris will most likely be the primary ball carrier, with Dri Archer and Ben Tate being mixed in as well.
Description: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell said his hyperextended knee feels "great" but did not answer whether he would play on Saturday in the Wild Card game against the Ravens according to NFL.com.
Insight: This is obviously good news, but just a day ago CBS Sport's Jason La Confora reported it is unlikely Bell plays, and despite this news, it still seems like there is more of a chance Bell doesn't play than plays. Pittsburgh is probably calling Bell a game-time decision so Baltimore has to prepare for him in their game plan. If Bell indeed can't go, Josh Harris will start and Dri Archer will see some time along with newly signed veteran Ben Tate.
Description: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was seen badly limping into the locker room Monday morning.
Insight: Dale Lolley, Steelers beat reporter, said he "could barely walk." Coach Mike Tomlin called it a hyperextension, but "not anything major." That doesn't mean he can be ready to play by Saturday. Josh Harris would likely get the running workload and Dri Archer the receiving targets if Bell can't go.
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was active for Week 17, but not productive.
Insight: Jones caught four balls for 58 yards. Fantasy owners expect triple digits every time out from this uber-talented receiver. He finished the season with 104 receptions for 1,593 yards and six touchdowns.
Description: Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught six of nine targets for 73 yards.
Insight: Not a great day, but a breakout season for Sanders who racked up 101 receptions for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns - all career highs. It must be fun to play for a quarterback like Peyton Manning.
Description: Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas caught just eight of 17 targets, but racked up 115 yards.
Insight: Ho hum. Another 100-yard receiving day for Demaryius Thomas. That's 10 of them in the last 13 games. he'll finish the regular season with a career-high 111 receptions for 1,619 yards. He scored 11 times, down from 14 last season.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw for 273 yards and no touchdowns.
Insight: Manning has become a mediocre fantasy quarterback over the past month and we blame the solid running of C.J. Anderson and an offensive line that has problems pass protecting. Mannings TD pass total went from 55 to 39 this season.
Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush rushed five times for 19 yards and caught three passes for 22 yards.
Insight: Bush is caught in a three-way backfield where Joique Bell gets the majority of the rushing workload and he shares receiving work with Theo Riddick. That makes it nearly impossible to be fantasy worthy.
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was targeted 11 times, a reasonable number, but managed to catch just four of them for 39 yards.
Insight: There is a silver lining, two of the four catches went for touchdowns. He's still a superstar receiver, but his numbers are down significantly from last season. He finished with 1,077 yards, his lowest total since 2009.
Description: Remember when 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was one of the best fantasy tight ends in the league?
Insight: You should, it was just last season when he posted a 52-850-13 line. In 2014 he couldn't even catch the flu and finished with 26 receptions for 245 yards and just two touchdowns (both on opening day).
Description: Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley had been in the league three seasons, but Sunday he threw his first touchdown pass after 228 attempts.
Insight: He finished with a career- high 316 yards passing, but three interceptions were his downfall. He had a much easier time than last weekend against Seattle, but we aren't sure he has enough talent to be fantasy worthy on a consistent basis.
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin caught just three balls for 43 yards.
Insight: The No. 1 Seahawks receiver didn't get much of anything done in this one, but his defense took care of things. We suspect by next season, Seattle management will find a better No. 1 for Wilson.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was very quiet in Week 17, throwing for 239 yard and one interception and rushing for just seven yards.
Insight: Wilson made them look silly last weekend, throwing for 339 yards and a pair of touchdowns and running for 88 yards and a third score, but for those with a championship matchup in Week 17 he fell well short of expectations.
