Bryce Perkins, Struggles in limited action

Perkins completed 19 of 34 passes for 161 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, and added 19 rushing attempts for 90 yards during the 2022 season.

Analysis: Perkins flashed some promise during the 2022 preseason, completing 35 of 49 pass attempts for 399 yards and two touchdowns while adding 73 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground on 18 attempts. That dual-threat ability was called upon in Week 11, when Matthew Stafford (neck) left midway through the third quarter, and Perkins performed admirably with 64 passing yards and 39 rushing yards in limited action, although a 50 percent completion percentage was a concerning sign. Perkins started in Week 12 with John Wolford out with a neck injury of his own, and struggled mightily, completing just 13 of 23 passes for 100 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, while tacking on 44 rushing yards. The Virginia product would only see five more snaps on offense the remainder of the year, as Wolford and Baker Mayfield served as the starters. Perkins is a restricted free agent going into 2023, but his struggles when called upon this season may see him looking elsewhere for work as a backup.

Malcolm Brown, Minimal production in backup role

Brown rushed 18 times for 81 yards and a touchdown and added five catches for 37 yards during the 2022 season.

Analysis: The eight-year veteran spent most of the season bouncing in and out of the practice squad, and his 81 rushing yards marked his lowest season-long tally since the 2016 season. Brown will be a unrestricted free agent heading into 2023, and with Cam Akers, Kyren Williams and Ronnie Rivers all returning for the Rams next season, Brown may be looking for a new home to provide veteran depth.

Brycen Hopkins, Meager production in year three

Hopkins recorded seven catches for 109 yards during the 2022-23 season.

Analysis: Hopkins missed three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, but was on the field for all 14 of the Rams' remaining games, operating as the No. 2 tight end behind Tyler Higbee after Kendall Blanton was released. As injuries piled up for the Rams, Hopkins saw his role increase as the season progressed, and he notched a career-high 57 receiving yards in Week 16's contest against the Broncos. The 2020 fourth-round pick will enter the final season of his rookie deal looking to continue carving out a role similar to what he saw in the latter half of the 2022 season while firmly entrenched behind the veteran Higbee.

Sammy Watkins, Draws four targets in Week 18

Watkins finished with two catches for 79 yards on four targets in Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Making his three appearance for the Ravens since being claimed off waivers from the Packers, Watkins made a couple of splash plays and finished the regular-season finale as the team's second-leading receiver behind tight end Isaiah Likely (eight catches for 103 yards). Watkins played 37 of the Ravens' 75 snaps on offense (49 percent) and appears poised to retain a top-three role in the wideout corps in this Sunday's rematch with the Bengals in the wild-card round.

Khadarel Hodge, Career-high 202 yards in 2022

Hodge caught 13 of 20 targets for 202 yards and a touchdown across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

Analysis: Hodge caught five of six targets for 95 yards over the first two games of the season, but he failed to provide consistent production the rest of the way. He was held without a catch 10 times across his next 15 appearances and caught just one pass over the final six games of the campaign, four of which came with Desmond Ridder at the helm. Nonetheless, Hodge still posted a career-high 202 receiving yards during the campaign and may have interest in re-signing with Atlanta in free agency this offseason, though the Falcons may elect to completely overhaul their wideout corps behind Drake London.
