Jordy Nelson was finally slowed down by the Lions in Week 17, as he was held to just 6 grabs for 66 yards, while Davante Adams stole the show with a 6-31-2 line. Doug Baldwin inexplicably saw just four targets, hauling in a pair for 44 yards. Michael Thomas exploded for a 10-156-1 line, while Golden Tate found the end zone, and Mike Evans found the end zone with a 5-65-1 line. Plenty of players have seen their seasons come to an end, and we will see four more make the trip home until next season this weekend. Let's look ahead to the Wild Card round:

While the Giants do rank second in the NFL against #1 WR, and held Nelson to just 4-38-1 (13 targets) in their first game, I'm still all-in on him for the Wild Card round. He ran away with the NFL lead in red zone targets with 29 this season, and saw 15 looks from Aaron Rodgers inside the 10, catching 11 of those passes for 9 TD. He is one of the most consistent WR in the NFL, and is catching passes from the hottest QB in the league. Rodgers has been cruising down the stretch, and we can rest assured that he will be looking toward his favorite target plenty this weekend as the Packers look to begin their Super Bowl run. The Giants defense has been tremendous of late, allowing just 13.3 PPG over their last three games. However, there's no scenario on the planet where I would bet against Rodgers, Nelson, and the Packers right now. Fire him up once again.
