Houston Texans tight end Jordan Akins is a healthy scratch in Week 12 against the New York Jets for the second straight week. It appears the 29-year-old has been passed on the depth chart by rookie Brevin Jordan with Pharaoh Brown back to full health. The Texans also have Antony Auclair at the position. Akins was already an afterthought in fantasy, as are the rest of Houston's tight ends for that matter, and has caught just 21 passes for 184 yards and no touchdowns on 28 targets in his nine games played (three starts) this season. The Texans offense could actually make some noise against the Jets this weekend, but it's hard to recommend any Houston tight end in fantasy given their lack of explosive plays on offense in 2021.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb was held to one catch for 21 yards during the Wild Card loss to the 49ers. The sophomore was targeted five times on Sunday. However, he couldn't do much with the opportunities afforded to him from Dak Prescott. Nonetheless, while this was arguably one of the worst performances of Lamb's career, he still had a fantastic season and finished as the Cowboys' top receiving option. He has a good chance to retain that crown next year, even though he will continue to battle for targets with Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and others.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper finished with six grabs for 64 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the 49ers. Cooper was the most productive Dallas wideout, although he wasn't as potent as tight end Dalton Schultz, who led the team with seven catches for 89 yards. Nonetheless, the 27-year-old capped off another solid year, although he wasn't as effective as he was over his previous two seasons. However, if Cooper can remain healthy, he has plenty of fantasy potential, although the emergence of CeeDee Lamb as the No. 1 receiving option may certainly lower his ceiling for the 2022-23 campaign.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott finished with only 12 carries for 31 yards during the Wild Card loss to San Francisco. The veteran couldn't get anything going, as evident by his atrocious 2.6 YPC. With the year behind him, he will look to get back on track next season. While he narrowly rushed for over 1,000 yards during the 2021-22 campaign, his days as a first-round fantasy option moving forward may be over, mainly based on some of his uneventful performances throughout his 17 appearances during the season. Elliott's health has also been an issue, and while it didn't cost him any time this season, it still severely negatively impacted his productivity.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 254 yards and a touchdown off 23-for-43 passing during the loss to the 49ers on Sunday. He also had an interception while adding 27 yards off four carries, with one of them resulting in a trip to the end zone. The signal-caller had a decent outing, but it would be safe to assume that DFS managers were hoping for a little more. Nonetheless, with another season in the books, Prescott will have some time to recover from any residual injuries sustained during the year. Overall, he was a reliable option for fantasy managers, and if he can stay healthy, he should at least be a top-10 quarterback during the 2022-23 campaign, with the potential for higher.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert finished with a team-high six catches for 92 yards during the Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay. Overall, Goedert had a solid outing on Sunday, and it capped off what was an efficient year for the 27-year-old, who ended the regular season by totaling 830 yards and four touchdowns off 56 catches. While he began the season battling Zach Ertz for looks, he should have a much clearer path for production in September now that Ertz is in Arizona.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders finished with only seven carries for 16 yards during the loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon. Sanders made his return during the Wild Card round after missing time because of a hand injury. However, the 24-year-old didn't do much and even ceded an end zone opportunity to Boston Scott. Overall, the former Penn State Nittany Lion had another underwhelming year, and he ended the regular season by rushing for a career-low 754 yards and no touchdowns. Health has also been an issue over the years, and unless Sanders proves he can turn things around, he shouldn't warrant much consideration for fantasy drafts heading into the 2022-23 campaign.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Darrel Williams (toe) is officially active for Sunday Night Football versus Pittsburgh. The 26-year-old was limited during practice throughout the week, although he appeared to be in line to play all along. Nonetheless, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) absent, Williams may benefit. He could have a productive outing, primarily since the Chiefs are projected to score a lot of points against an unreliable Steelers defense.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski finished with five catches for 31 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's postseason victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Although Mike Evans surpassed all of the other Bucs' pass-catchers, Gronk still was involved. His end zone trip marked his 15th playoff touchdown grab from Tom Brady, the most of any duo in NFL history. The veteran certainly has had his unproductive performances this season. However, he should remain one of Brady's favorite weapons in the Divisional round, regardless of whether Leonard Fournette (hamstring) can return.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans finished with nine catches for 117 yards during the win over the Eagles on Sunday. He also had a touchdown, finding the end zone off of a 36-yard toss from Tom Brady in the third quarter. The 28-year-old veteran continued to battle a hamstring issue entering this one. However, it didn't seem to impact his performance as Brady looked in his direction often. Nonetheless, Evans could cool off if Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Cyril Grayson (hamstring) can return for the Divisional round. However, Evans should still continue to get his fair share of targets moving ahead, although potentially not as many.
San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa (concussion) won't return to Sunday's Wild Card matchup versus Dallas. The 24-year-old came down hard on his head in the first half but appeared to have a chance to make it back. However, he was eventually downgraded after failing to pass subsequent concussion testing. Bosa would go on to finish with three total tackles, and if the Niners make it past the Cowboys, he should be considered questionable for the Divisional round.
