      Hardy produced 14 receptions for 133 yards and two touchdowns over 16 games in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With first-round rookie Calvin Ridley in the fold, Hardy took on a smaller role than he's had in recent seasons with Atlanta. The 27-year-old was still a reliable No. 4 receiver for the Falcons, though, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he re-signs before or after he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March.

      Reynolds brought in four of seven targets for 74 yards and rushed once for 16 yards during the Rams' 26-23 overtime win over the Saints in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The evolution of Reynolds as a legitimate third receiver continued in significant fashion Sunday, as the second-year wideout made several key plays in the second half. Reynolds logged a 33-yard catch that got the Rams down to the Saints' seven-yard line in the fourth quarter on a drive that culminated in a game-tying Greg Zuerlein field goal. He followed up with a 19-yard grab on the subsequent possession, one which also ended on a successful Zuerlein kick that sent the game into overtime. The 2017 third-round pick has undoubtedly earned Jared Goff's trust since he took over the third receiver job after Cooper Kupp's season-ending knee injury, and he'll look to play an important role in two weeks during the Super Bowl.

      Taylor finished the 2018 season having completed 49 percent of his passes for 473 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in four games for the Browns in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Taylor wasn't heard from much after getting knocked out of the Browns' Week 3 matchup with the Jets, a game in which rookie Baker Mayfield came in and led Cleveland to victory before being named the starter for the rest of the season. While Taylor wasn't particularly impressive even when healthy and seeing playing time, he's still a solid passer who should have a healthy market as a free agent in March.

      Ingram rushed nine times for 31 yards and brought in both of his targets for six yards during the Saints' 26-23 overtime loss to the Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ingram filled his usual complementary role alongside Alvin Kamara, but he wasn't able to generate much on a yards-per-touch basis. Despite the lackluster finish to his season, the veteran back was impressive once again during this past regular season, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and logging six rushing touchdowns while adding 21 receptions and another score through the air in 12 games. Given that Ingram clearly still has plenty left in the tank, the impending unrestricted free agent figures to attract plenty of interest on the open market this offseason.

      Woods brought in six of 10 targets for 33 yards during the Rams' 26-23 overtime over the Saints in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. He also lost three yards on two rushes.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Woods saw his usual robust workload in terms of targets, but he wasn't anywhere near as successful in racking up his customary production in receiving yardage. Woods did see a chance for a big gain go by the wayside when Jared Goff failed to put the ball ahead of him on a slant in the second half, which kept the play to a more modest gain when Woods lost his balance after the catch. Nevertheless, the sure-handed veteran will undoubtedly be an integral part of the Rams' plan of attack once again in the Super Bowl in two weeks' time against either the Patriots or Chiefs.

      Smith rushed for 127 yards and one touchdown on 44 carries over 16 games in 2018. He also caught nine of 12 targets for 60 yards.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Smith was rarely much of a factor in the offensive gameplan outside of a lone spot start in Week 17 while filling in for a resting Ezekiel Elliott. His longest play went for just 14 yards, and his 2.2 YPC was among the least efficient in the league. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Cowboys move on when Smith becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.

      Brown caught 42 of 97 targets for 715 yards and five scores in 16 games for Baltimore in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Brown averaged a career-high 17.0 yards per catch in his first year with the Ravens, but an atrocious 43-percent catch rate (third worst in NFL) bombed his fantasy value. The narrative may have been different if Joe Flacco remained the starting quarterback all year, though, as Brown was on pace for 1,069 yards and 6.4 touchdowns before Flacco was benched ahead of Week 11. Comparatively, Brown averaged just 12.8 yards per game with Lamar Jackson under center -- which doesn't bode well for Brown's fantasy stock in 2019.

      Ngata contributed 17 tackles, one sack, one pass breakup and one forced fumble over 13 games in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ngata assumed the smallest role of his career in his age-34 season, averaging just over 28 defensive snaps per contest while rotating in behind a number of other talented defensive linemen. His stat line showed it, too, and Ngata will now become an unrestricted free agent in March.

      Graham generated 39 tackles, four sacks, two pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 16 games in 2018.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Graham's stats don't do his play justice considering how impactful he was as a pass rusher. He only got four sacks, but the 30-year-old ranked with the league leaders with 60 quarterback hurries. Overall, Graham performed well on the last year of his contract and should have a strong market when free agency opens in March.

      Cooks brought in seven of eight targets for 107 yards during the Rams' 26-23 overtime win over the Saints in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Cooks ended up as the Rams' most effective receiver versus his old squad, with his exploits key to Los Angeles' upset, Super Bowl-clinching win. The 2014 first-round pick's contributions were especially crucial on a day when the Saints effectively limited fellow wideout Robert Woods, especially downfield. Cooks' elite speed, which he flashed on a pretty 36-yard over-the shoulder grab Sunday, could once again prove pivotal to the Rams' chances against either the Patriots or Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
