Benjamin had two rushes for three yards during Sunday's 10-7 loss against Carolina. Over 15 games between Arizona, Houston and New Orleans in 2022, he recorded 73 rushing attempts for 313 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 25 receptions (34 targets) for 193 yards
Analysis: Benjamin finished the season in a reserve role alongside David Johnson, as both backs joined New Orleans when No. 2 running back Mark Ingram went down with a season-ending knee injury in early December. Benjamin ultimately had a slightly smaller workload compared to the 31-year-old Johnson, though neither saw any significant action with Alvin Kamara and do-it-all tight end Taysom Hill shouldering the Saints' rushing duties over the final four games. The 23-year-old Benjamin wound up seeing the vast majority of this production come over 10 games with the Cardinals before he was waived by the team Nov. 14. Benjamin also never carved out a significant role on special teams following his departure from Arizona. He will now enter the final year of his rookie contract during the 2023 season.

Koo went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-3 on point-after tries during Sunday's 30-17 win versus the Buccaneers.
Analysis: Koo gave the Falcons a 10-7 lead at the end of the first quarter with a 49-yard field goal and added a 24-yard chip shot in the third to cut Tampa Bay's lead to 17-13. The kicker ended the campaign by connecting on a 51-yard attempt that extended Atlanta's lead to 30-17 late in the fourth quarter. After a shaky start to the campaign, Koo turned it around and made 16 of his final 17 field-goal attempts, with his lone miss coming from beyond 50 yards. He also made all 11 of his PATs during that stretch (seven games). Koo signed a five-year extension in March of 2022 and has more than solidified himself as a consistent and effective kicker over his past four seasons in Atlanta.

Brown reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Brown capped off his third practice-squad elevation of the season with a bang. The 32-year-old wideout's six offensive snaps were the lowest of any Bills receiver Week 18, though he capitalized when he caught a 42-yard touchdown pass deep down the right sideline late in the third quarter. This was Brown's just second target of the season and his first reception since the 2020 campaign. He should continue to serve as a deep reserve option for Buffalo so long as wideouts Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) remain on IR during the upcoming playoffs.

Streveler signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Streveler put together a strong preseason showing with the Jets before joining the team's practice squad ahead of the regular season. The 6-foot-1 dual-threat quarterback was then elevated for three games this season. This includes the Week 16 loss to Jacksonville, in which he went 10-for-15 passing for 90 yards to go along with nine carries for 54 yards after stepping in for benched starter Zach Wilson. Streveler was also active for the Week 17 tilt against Seattle, though he did not see the field while serving as the No. 3 quarterback behind Mike White and Joe Flacco. Streveler will now look to carve out a bigger role as a backup with the Jets this offseason.

Sherfield was not targeted during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Sherfield didn't draw a target from Skylar Thompson despite having been involved enough Week 17 to draw six looks. As such, the regular-season finale counts as Sherfield's first game of the 2022 regular season without a target. He could be more involved in the wild-card matchup against Buffalo, especially if the Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) or Teddy Bridgewater back under center.
