    • Dez Bryant dominates Redskins for 4/99/2
      Dez Bryant caught 4-of-6 targets for 99 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

      Advice: Bryant embarrassed saloon-door CB David Amerson on both his touchdowns. Dez shed an Amerson "tackle" on a 65-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter, and whipped him in the end zone for a 23-yard number four minutes later. Bryant finishes 2014 with 16 scores, a new Cowboys record. That's along with 88 catches for 1,320 yards. Bryant has an unbelievable 41 scores over the past three seasons. Rotoworld.com

    • Cordarrelle Patterson goes catch-less
      Cordarrelle Patterson finished Week 17 without a catch, seeing one target.

      Advice: Patterson's lone "highlight" was a third-quarter drop that was intercepted by Kyle Fuller. Patterson was beyond-brutal as a wideout in first-year OC Norv Turner's system, ultimately dipping to No. 4 on the depth chart behind Charles Johnson, Greg Jennings, and Jarius Wright. Finishing with 33 receptions for 384 yards and one touchdown, Patterson's future in the league appears to be as a returns specialist and not as a traditional receiver. His Dynasty value took a huge, huge hit this year. Patterson will probably not be draft-able in 2015 re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Torrey Smith carries Ravens into the playoffs
      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

    • Allen Hurns goes 2-15 in Week 17 loss
      Allen Hurns caught 2-of-4 targets for 15 yards in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

      Advice: His rookie season ends with a 51-677-6 line as an undrafted free agent. Hurns was the star of the preseason for the Jaguars, and he turned it into a prominent offensive role for the duration of the season. He already knew the offense from his days with OC Jedd Fisch at Miami. The Jaguars played Hurns in the slot in three-wide sets. Able to stay healthy all year, Hurns played the most snaps among Jacksonville receivers. He’s not a special talent, but has a knack for big plays to go with untimely drops. Hurns will have to compete again next summer, but he has a chance to enter the season as a top-three receiver. Rotoworld.com

      Danny Amendola caught 4-of-7 targets for 24 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

      Advice: Given a full run of snaps with Julian Edelman (concussion) sidelined, Amendola answered by averaging six yards a catch. Amendola did have a solid punt return to set up the Patriots' only second-half score, but he is being paid way too much to be a glorified punt returner. Amendola will contribute in the playoffs, but he has likely just played his final regular season game with the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: LaFell appeared to tweak his ankle late in the fourth quarter, but he jogged it off on the sideline and eventually reentered the game. LaFell was the only member of the Patriots' passing game to play the full game, perhaps because he was chasing his first 1,000-yard season of his career. He fell just short, but still put together a career-best 74/953/7 line in his first season in New England. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Josh Gordon a 'problem' who 'has to go'
      CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Josh Gordon is viewed as a "perpetual problem" inside the Browns' organization and "has to go."

      Advice: Let the pile-on begin. The Gordon bashers have come out in full force the past month, and it's now coming to a head after the team suspended him for the season finale because he missed Saturday's walkthrough. Words like "former star" and "habitually late" were also mentioned in the CBS piece. The Browns put up with Gordon's problems when he posted one of the best seasons in NFL history last season, but now that their season has collapsed in front of them, it's time to throw blame wherever. And Gordon and Johnny Manziel are the ones receiving it. The Browns have been an historically-bad organization for years now. They'd be dumb to dump Gordon. But it appears a split may be coming.

He'll finish with just five games active this season, which could prevent him from being eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2016. Per ESPN's Tony Grossi, "it appears doubtful" Gordon will be back with the team. The Browns nearly traded Gordon prior to the 2013 deadline and could shop him again this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Browns suspend Gordon for breaking team rules
      Browns suspended Josh Gordon for Week 17 against the Ravens for a violation of team rules.

      Advice: Gordon was placed on the reserve/suspended list. WR Phil Bates was promoted off the practice squad to take his place. The Browns did not announce why Gordon was suspended, but NFL.com's Mike Silver reports Gordon missed the Browns' Saturday walk through. The suspension ends a tumultuous season for Gordon. After missing the first 11 weeks of the season serving a league-mandated suspension, Gordon looked out of shape and unfamiliar with the playbook as he struggled his way to 24 catches for 303 yards and zero touchdowns in five starts. Bad quarterback play certainly contributed to Gordon's disappointing stretch, but he was not the transcendent talent that took the league by storm in 2013. Coming off a down season and now serving his third suspension in two years, Gordon's Dynasty stock is crumbling. Rotoworld.com

"I know I needed to be out there with my teammates. ... I felt pretty good: Not 100 percent, but it was good enough to go out there and get the W." We wouldn't expect Jones to practice much, if at all this week. But considering the Falcons are playing the Panthers for the NFC South next week, he'll almost certainly be starting again.

    • Hakeem Nicks gets 11 targets with Hilton out
      Hakeem Nicks caught 9-of-11 targets for 72 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.

      Advice: Nicks was the focus of the Colts' passing attack with T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) sidelined, so it is not a huge surprise the offense fell flat on its face. Nicks was inexplicably used on four screen passes throughout the game, predictably doing nothing after each catch. T.Y. Hilton appeared close to playing against Dallas, so Nicks should mercifully be relegated to a tertiary role Week 17 against Tennessee. Rotoworld.com

    • Dez Bryant finds the end zone against Colts
      Dez Bryant caught all five of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: Bryant skied over Greg Toler for a 19-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and generally dominated the Colts defensive backs anytime the ball went his way. Unfortunately for Bryant's fantasy owners, the Colts put up almost zero resistance, and Tony Romo only had to throw the ball 20 times in the game. Bryant leads the league with 14 touchdown receptions this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Amendola has eight-catch day
      Danny Amendola caught 8-of-11 targets for 63 yards in New England's Week 16 win over the Jets.

      Advice: Filling in for Julian Edelman (concussion), both the catches and yards were easily Amendola's most of the season. The Pats have to be pleased they can plug and play Amendola in Edelman's absence, but he'll be off the DFS radar if Edelman is ready for Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Torrey Smith caught five passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Texans.

      Advice: He and Steve Smith Sr. were both targeted a team-high 12 times. Torrey was left wide open on his first eight-yard touchdown before later scoring from 20 yards out on a screen pass to the right. Torrey's season started slow, and while the yards aren't there thanks to drops and miscommunication with Joe Flacco, he now has secured a career-high 10 touchdowns. The Ravens close the regular season at home against the Browns in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Brandon LaFell caught 7-of-10 targets for 64 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

      Advice: LaFell was one of three Pats to draw 10 targets in the absence of Julian Edelman. LaFell needs 117 yards in Week 17 to post the first 1,000-yard campaign of his career, but may not get the chance if the Broncos lose on Monday Night Football, thereby ceding the No. 1 seed to the Pats. New England has already clinched the No. 2 seed. Rotoworld.com

      Josh Gordon secured 4-of-7 targets for 45 yards in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

      Advice: Gordon had an early six-yard reception overturned when replay showed the ball hit the ground. He came back to record a handful of short receptions when Brian Hoyer entered the game in the second quarter, replacing Johnny Manziel (hamstring). Gordon will close out a suspension-shortened third NFL season against the Ravens' leaky secondary in Week 17. It's probably good news for Gordon's statistical outlook that Hoyer is back under center.

      Julio Jones caught 7-of-8 targets for 107 yards Week 16 against the Saints.

      Advice: Jones did not play every snap, but he played the vast majority despite not practicing at all leading up to the game. Jones did not appear to be 100 percent healthy, but he still made several big plays including a huge 24-yard grab that set up the Falcons for a touchdown with little time left in the second quarter. Jones appeared to escape the game without any setbacks, meaning he should be good to go for the winner take all game against the Panthers next week. Rotoworld.com

      Percy Harvin was forced from the Jets' Week 16 game against the Patriots with a rib injury, and will not return.

      Advice: Harvin went down midway through the third quarter, and was ruled out early in the fourth. The injury-prone wideout had four catches for 44 yards before going down, adding two rushes for one yard. With only one game left, it's possible Harvin has played not only his final snap of the season, but as a Jet. Rotoworld.com

    • Julio Jones reportedly looks good in warmup
      According to Jay Adams of the Falcons' official site, Julio Jones (oblique) is "really passing the eye test" in warmups.

      Advice: Adams is an employee of the team, so it's possible he's wearing rose-colored glasses. But his observations are worth passing along. Adams says Julio "looks strong, loose, ready" and is "running well." The Falcons desperately need to win this game over the Saints and desperately need their No. 1 WR as more than a decoy. We've ranked him 17th among wideouts. Rotoworld.com

      Julio Jones (strained oblique) is officially active for Week 16 against the Saints.

      Advice: The Falcons reportedly saw enough from Jones in a pre-game workout to make him active despite Jones missing every practice this week. Jones could be limited by his oblique injury, but the buzz around Falcons' camp has always been he would be more than a decoy if active. He is a risky play during championship week, but his upside makes him a mid-range WR2 even with the risk. Rotoworld.com

      Danny Amendola's role is expected to spike with Julian Edelman (concussion) out for Sunday's game at the Jets.

      Advice: Amendola is projected to work in two-wide sets along with Brandon LaFell and then move into the slot for three-wide formations. On paper, it's a big opportunity for him. But Amendola has been wildly ineffective ever since joining the Patriots, and we'd expect the roles of Tim Wright and Shane Vereen to rise sharply as well. Don't trust Amendola as much more than a low-end WR3 or WR4 despite the opportunity. Rotoworld.com

      The Patriots have ruled out Julian Edelman (concussion) and LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) for Week 16 at the Jets.

      Advice: Neither made the trip to New York. Edelman figures to be replaced by Danny Amendola, who could be a slightly intriguing "punt" play in DFS this week, although the majority of Tom Brady's targets figure to go to Rob Gronkowski, Brandon LaFell, and Shane Vereen. With Blount on the shelf, Jonas Gray will operate as New England's primary power runner between the tackles. Rotoworld.com

The good news is Pats-Jets has a 1PM ET start, so we'll know Edelman's status early. Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell could add a few targets if Edelman can't play, with Danny Amendola's role possibly increasing. Rotoworld.com
