    • Tannehill caps off breakout 3rd NFL season
      Ryan Tannehill completed 23-of-39 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

      Advice: Tannehill took a major leap in his first season under OC Bill Lazor, who designed a high-percentage offense and emphasized his quarterback getting rid of the football quickly. Tannehill may always be limited from a deep-ball standpoint, but he progressed over the course of the year and is a plus athlete, a trait Lazor consistently put to use on read-option plays and designed QB runs. Tannehill finished the season with a 27:12 TD-to-INT ratio and a completion rate of nearly 67.0. His 392 completions set a Dolphins single-season record. 26 years old, Tannehill is on the fringe of "franchise quarterback" status. He is owed just $2 million in 2015, a contract year for Tannehill. The Dolphins will likely begin extension talks soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Larry Donnell's breakout year ends quietly
      Larry Donnell caught two passes for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

      Advice: Donnell came from off the pace to win the Giants' camp battle for the starting tight end job. But he immediately flashed starting ability, going 5-56-1 in Week 1 and finishing his breakout second season with 63-623-6. The Giants reportedly see "LD" as their long-term option at tight end, which will put him on the back-end TE1 radar in 2015. Just realize he'll have to share targets with Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Rotoworld.com

      Dontrelle Inman caught five passes for 79 yards in Week 17 against the Chiefs.

      Advice: Inman was the No. 3 receiver with Keenan Allen sidelined. He had at least 70 yards over the final two games and will be a candidate for a bigger role next season. A former CFL star, Inman should return as one of San Diego's top four wideouts. Rotoworld.com

    • Anthony Dixon finds paydirt against Patriots
      Anthony Dixon rushed seven times for 27 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Patriots.

      Advice: Dixon was clearly second fiddle to Fred Jackson against New England, but he was given the team's only goal-line chance early in the second quarter. Dixon converted for his second touchdown of the season. A plodding pile mover, Dixon finishes 2014 with 432 yards on 105 carries (4.1 YPC). With Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both potential free agents, Dixon could have a role in the Bills offense in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Cumberland finishes season at 23-247-3
      Jets TE Jeff Cumberland caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

      Advice: Cumberland spent 2014 in a rotation with rookie Jace Amaro, finishing with a 23-247-3 receiving line. A former college wide receiver, Cumberland has been billed as a plus athlete, but does not play like it on the field and is also a liability as a blocker. The Jets signed Cumberland to a new three-year, $5.7 million contract last March, so he'll likely be back with the club in 2015. He has zero Dynasty value. The team will hope for a 2015 step forward from tight end of the future Amaro. Rotoworld.com

      Bilal Powell rushed once for no gain in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

      Advice: Powell was in and out of the lineup this season, mostly operating as the Jets' pass-protection specialist behind Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson. 26-year-old Powell finished the season with 33 carries for 141 yards and 11 receptions. He is an impending free agent and will draw scant interest on the open market as a limited-talent role player. Rotoworld.com

      Daniel Thomas rushed once for a one-yard touchdown and caught one pass for one yard in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

      Advice: Thomas scored an early goal-line touchdown and was otherwise quiet. The pedestrian veteran finished the season with 44 carries for 168 yards (3.82 YPC) and two TDs. Thomas was initially cut by the Dolphins, but re-signed when they lost Knowshon Moreno. If 27-year-old Thomas has a future in the league, it's as a low-end No. 2 or higher-end No. 3 running back.

      Andrew Hawkins caught 4-of-7 targets for 33 yards Week 17 against the Ravens.

      Advice: Hawkins finishes the year with 63 receptions for 824 yards and two touchdowns. Hawkins looked like a shrewd free-agent acquisition after catching 21 passes through the first three weeks of the season, but his play tailed off as the season progressed. A diminutive slot receiver, Hawkins does not score enough touchdowns to be viable in standard scoring, though he could have some upside in PPR formats if the Browns quarterback situation gets fixed before 2015.

    • Ivory gets 14 touches, scores TD in win
      Chris Ivory rushed 13 times for 29 yards and caught an eight-yard touchdown pass in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

      Advice: The Dolphins' defense didn't even cover Ivory on his eight-yard touchdown catch in the first half. Pass catching really isn't a part of Ivory's game, but he again proved to be an above-average ball carrier for the Jets in 2014, turning 198 rushing attempts into 821 yards (4.15 YPC) and scoring seven all-purpose TDs. Turning 27 in March, Ivory will return to the Jets in 2015 at his cheap base salary of $2 million. Ivory's receiving limitations and past proneness to injury, however, will likely always render him a committee back. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Cameron finishes disappointing year
      Jordan Cameron caught 3-of-6 targets for 41 yards Week 17 against the Ravens.

      Advice: 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.

    • Kyle Rudolph held catch-less in Week 17
      Kyle Rudolph was held catch-less in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.

      Advice: We noticed Rudolph on an impressive block to spring Matt Asiata for a first-half run, but otherwise he was quiet coming off multiple injuries. Dating back to Notre Dame, Rudolph has been incredibly injury prone, and he missed seven more games this year, finishing with a disappointing 24-231-2 receiving line. Still only 25 years old, Rudolph is locked up long term in Minnesota after GM Rick Spielman handed him a new six-year, $37.5 million deal this past summer. Although Rudolph plays under typically tight end-friendly OC Norv Turner and in a promising passing attack, his Dynasty outlook is suspect. Rudolph is a quality red-zone target, but isn't quick enough to consistently defeat linebackers or safeties in coverage. He'll be better viewed as a TE2 in 2015 re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Bucs, adding two catches for an additional four yards.

      Advice: Ingram finishes his breakout 2014 just 36 yards rushing shy of 1,000 despite missing three games with a broken hand. Ingram was a bright spot for an otherwise massively-disappointing team, averaging 4.26 yards per carry while racking up nine touchdowns. Still only 25, Ingram is headed for free agency. The Saints would undoubtedly love to keep him, but face a daunting cap crunch. It's quite possible Ingram has played his final down in New Orleans. Rotoworld.com

    • RGIII commits three ugly turnovers in finale
      Robert Griffin III completed 27-of-41 passes for 336 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Washington's 44-17, Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

      Advice: He added six carries for 19 yards and a second touchdown, but also lost a fumble which Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer housed for a score. Both of RGIII's picks were tossed into too tight of coverage, while his fumble came on a play where he should have gone down earlier. He never got in rhythm as a passer, with big chunks of his yardage coming after the catch from DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Griffin closes the book on 2014 having committed eight turnovers while accounting for just five touchdowns. He's not a fit for coach Jay Gruden's conservative, pass-happy offense, and Gruden doesn't appear particularly interested in making him one. It will be a disaster waiting to happen if RGIII is back as Washington's starter in 2015. A trade would be best for his fantasy future, but clueless owner Daniel Snyder likely won't be willing to sell low on someone he believes is his franchise player. Rotoworld.com

      DeMarco Murray rushed 20 times for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 17 win over the Redskins, adding three receptions for an additional 21 yards.

      Advice: Murray finishes 2014 with 1,845 yards rushing, and having surpassed 100 yards on the ground in 12-of-16 contests. His 2,261 yards from scrimmage are 13th most all time, while his raw rushing total is 17th. Murray's 1,845 yards on the ground are a new Cowboys record. Perhaps most impressively, Murray took the rock 392 times, more than all but six players in NFL history. He'll look to carry the Cowboys to their second playoff victory of the Tony Romo era.

    • Matt Asiata totals 100+ yards in victory
      Matt Asiata rushed for 91 yards on 19 carries and caught two balls for 17 yards in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.

      Advice: A fullbackish grinder, Asiata wound up spending most of the 2014 season as Minnesota's feature back due to Adrian Peterson's suspension and Jerick McKinnon's injury. Asiata finished with 164 carries for 570 yards (3.48 YPC) and ten all-purpose touchdowns, to go with 44 receptions. Asiata can pass protect and gets what's blocked, and for those reasons he may have a long NFL career. But he isn't a starting-caliber running back. The 27-year-old will be a restricted free agent in March. We suspect the Vikings will tender Asiata at the lowest possible level, or not tender him at all. Rotoworld.com

      Torrey Smith caught 4-of-7 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Browns.

      Advice: Struggling along with the rest of the Ravens' offense entering the fourth quarter, Smith put the team on his back in the final frame. Down 10-6 with time winding down, Smith ran past Joe Haden for a 53-yard gain to put the Ravens deep into Cleveland territory. Flacco then hit Smith for a 16-yard score on the very next play. The touchdown catch was Smith's career-high 11th of the season. After an up and down contract year, Smith showed how valuable he can be late in this game. Despite the strong showing, Smith could use a big postseason to improve his free agent market. Rotoworld.com

      Jordan Todman rushed for 52 yards on seven carries in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans, adding five catches for 46 yards and one touchdown.

      Advice: Todman saw extensive snaps after Toby Gerhart was injured early. He wraps up the season with 186 yards and one touchdown on 32 carries, adding 25 catches for 198 yards and another score. Merely a third-down back and pass-blocking specialist, Todman played just about 300 snaps this season behind Denard Robinson, Toby Gerhart, and, at times, Storm Johnson, though his role remained steady on a weekly basis. That’s something the three other running backs can’t say. Todman will be a restricted free agent in March. He should be back with the Jaguars in 2015. Rotoworld.com

It's fitting for an inept player that rushed 159 times for 519 yards (3.26 YPC) with three touchdowns.

That usage does not say much for his standing in the New England offense, though Jonas Gray (ankle) being inactive may have force Blount into more work.

      Advice: With their offense sputtering (Luck totaled 296 passing yards in the last two games combined), the Colts chose to play all their starters in this meaningless game. The decision should give the unit a bit of confidence heading into next week's Wild Card game. Luck, who was fantasy's No. 1 quarterback through 16 weeks, finishes his third NFL season by setting career-highs in completions (380), completion percentage (61.6), yards (4,761) and touchdown passes (40).

      The Giants expect Larry Donnell to take another big leap forward in 2015.

      Advice: Per ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Giants believe in Donnell as a long-term starting tight end. They think he'll "develop into a dynamic player who is a huge part of Ben McAdoo's offense." Donnell got off to a torrid start to the season, scoring six touchdowns the first 11 weeks. But the past five games, Donnell has averaged just three catches for 32 yards per game with zero scores. With Victor Cruz returning to full health behind Odell Beckham in 2015, Donnell should be no higher than No. 3 in line for targets. He'll have to make his hay in the red zone. Rotoworld.com

He's battled drops and bouts of inconsistency. Joe Flacco isn't taking as many deep shots in first-year OC Gary Kubiak's offense. Smith is unlikely to be paid like a No. 1 receiver.

    • Ivory (hamstring) pops up on injury report
      Chris Ivory was added to the Jets' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with a hamstring issue.

      Advice: Ivory must have tweaked something in Wednesday's session, as the Jets didn't practice on Thursday. Their injury report was just an approximation. Ivory has a long history of hamstring issues, but the "limited" tag — as opposed to "DNP" — suggests he'll be ready for Sunday's finale against the Dolphins. Ivory's status will be updated on Friday.

      Advice: Pagano, understandably, believes the Colts "need to build some steam" entering the postseason after Sunday's 42-7 loss to Dallas.

      Advice: Murray played 30-of-49 offensive snaps before getting pulled, turning 22 carries into 58 yards and a touchdown. He was not targeted in the passing game. Murray was clearly hampered by the hand injury. He carried the ball almost exclusively in his right hand and seemed wary of using his hands to block in pass protection, instead attempting to essentially tackle the blitzing defender. Murray did not suffer any setbacks, but with the NFC East already locked up, the Cowboys may decide to rest Murray in the season finale against Washington. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Luck finishes the game completing 15-of-22 passes for 109 yards and two interceptions. The stat line is terrible, but Luck was not as bad as the numbers indicate. The Colts' banged up offensive line struggled to protect Luck, and his pass catchers did not help the situation by dropping several passes. OC Pep Hamilton has to shoulder some of the blame as well as he failed to get Donte Moncrief involved and instead decided to run three screen passes to Hakeem Nicks. Luck has not played well lately, but he is a decent bet to get back on track against the Titans Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Tannehill was lucky to have an early would-be pick dropped by Vikings FS Harrison Smith. Smith did pick Tannehill early in the second quarter. Tannehill bounced back to toss a 14-yard touchdown pass to Dion Sims later in the frame. The Dolphins emphasized a quick-hitting passing attack featuring tight ends Charles Clay and Sims, and running back Lamar Miller on screens. Tannehill's second TD was good to Mike Wallace from 16 yards out, and he threw Nos. 3 and 4 to Wallace (7 yards) and RB Damien Williams (3 yards), respectively.

Miami has struggled mightily in run defense for the past month-plus and Minnesota looked to take advantage, utilizing FB Jerome Felton ahead of Asiata in I and offset-I formations. Asiata also converted a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, and the game-winning touchdown just plays later following a Jarvis Landry lost fumble deep in Dolphins territory.

Vereen found himself in a three-man committee with Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden, with six of his touches coming on one third-quarter series.

      Advice: Mort also reiterated that the Falcons are "optimistic" Jones will play today. The Falcons visit the Saints in a 1pm ET game, so we will have Julio's activity or lack thereof posted on the website no later than noon ET today. Rotoworld.com

    • Julio Jones 'walking fine' at Superdome
      Julio Jones (hip, questionable) was "walking fine" as he arrived at the Superdome Sunday morning.

      Advice: This doesn't hint at whether Julio will play or not, but it's fantasy title week and we're blurbing any and all information on critical skill-position players. The Falcons will decide Jones' availability during a pre-game warmup Sunday morning. The signs currently point toward Julio being active at the Saints. Rotoworld.com

    • Cowboys 'nervous' about D. Murray's pass pro
      NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeMarco Murray is "going to play" Sunday with a wrap on his surgically repaired hand, but the Cowboys are "nervous" about using him in pass protection.

      Advice: RapSheet writes to not be surprised if Murray and other Cowboys rest next week if Dallas locks up a playoff spot today. On Sunday, we expect to see Lance Dunbar handle a few more snaps than usual in pass-pro situations. The Cowboys may also give Joseph Randle a heavier dose of change-up work. Murray is still a top-ten RB1 play against the Colts' leaky defense. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: RGIII will be back with Skins in 2015
      The Washington Post's Jason Reid writes Robert Griffin III is "expected to return" to the Redskins in 2015.

      Advice: Profootballtalk reports RGIII's job status for 2015 was never in danger despite all of the reports stating otherwise in recent weeks. RGIII looked like his vintage self in a Saturday afternoon win over the Eagles, and suddenly things are peachy in D.C. RGIII has an opportunity to finish the season on a high note against the Cowboys in Week 17. Whether Jay Gruden returns as head coach remains unclear, but he's reportedly been told he'll be back.

    • Dontrelle Inman puts on second-half show
      Dontrelle Inman caught 7-of-9 targets for 79 yards Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Substituted in for an ineffective Seyi Ajirotutu at halftime, Inman made his presence known early and often in the second half. He seemed to get open at will against the 49ers' secondary, and showed strong hands on several contested catches across the middle including a 4th-down conversion on the game-tying drive. A former CFL star, the 25-year-old Inman is a good bet to carve out a role in 2015 in the Chargers' nondescript receiver corps. He is an excellent add in Dynasty formats. Rotoworld.com

    • RGIII leads Washington to upset win
      Robert Griffin III completed 16-of-23 passes for 220 yards and an interception in Saturday's Week 16 win over the Eagles.

      Advice: Griffin looked more decisive from the pocket, and was able to go through his progressions when given time. His highlights were two 50-plus yard throws to DeSean Jackson. Grifin's interception came trying to force a pass to Jackson in double coverage, but he bounced back and led Washington to a game-winning drive. Griffin has a matchup against Dallas in Week 17.

    • Report: Expecation is DeMarco Murray plays
      ESPN's Ed Werder reports expectations are DeMarco Murray (hand, questionable) will play Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: This report jibes with the general feeling around Cowboys' camp this week. Murray is fully expected to be active and start against the Colts, though he may lose some pass-game work to Lance Dunbar. Murray is a must start if active, but with RT Doug Free (ankle, doubtful) and RG Zack Martin (ankle, questionable) likely out, he may find less running room than usual against Indianapolis.

      Matt Asiata (foot) is listed as probable for Week 16.

      Advice: Asiata will continue to lead the Vikings' backfield against Miami. He should see 15-20 touches against a Dolphins run defense that's allowing an average of 192 yards over the last four games. Asiata is a top-25 running back play for Week 16. Rotoworld.com

      Shane Vereen (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

      Advice: Vereen has played the last two weeks despite being listed as questionable. He projects for 6-8 touches against the Jets. Vereen won't be more than a low-end RB3 option for the fantasy finals. Rotoworld.com

      LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) remained limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

      Advice: Blount played only 16 snaps last week due to his shoulder injury. His Week 16 status isn't in doubt, but he faces an uncertain workload at less than 100 percent. Blount is an RB3 with touchdown upside against the Jets. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Todman totals 76 yards versus Titans
      Jordan Todman rushed five times for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans, adding two catches for five yards.

      Advice: Todman had the play of the night in the fourth quarter. With the Jags running a fake reverse, Todman took the handoff, made one cut and was off to the races for a 62-yard touchdown. Todman showed serious speed in housing his first score of the year. He could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Toby Gerhart (ribs) can't go. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Blount's Week 16 availability isn't in doubt, but his role is muddled with the re-emergence of Jonas Gray. Blount will be a touchdown-dependent FLEX play for the fantasy finals. Players who are still alive in season-long leagues need to do better. Rotoworld.com

      Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

      Advice: Rudolph is beginning to look shaky for Sunday's trip to Miami. Rudolph is coming off his first effective game of 2014, but will be difficult to trust as a TE2 at far less than 100 percent health. Rudolph has admitted his groin remains an issue in addition to his knee and ankle ailments. Chase Ford will start at tight end if Rudolph sits in South Beach. Rotoworld.com

By not even mentioning him on the injury report, the Ravens are saying he's close to 100 percent for a dreamy matchup with the Texans Sunday. Rotoworld.com
