Matthew Slater, Matthew Slater Hangs Up His Cleats

New England Patriots wide receiver and special teams ace Matthew Slater announced on Tuesday that he is officially retiring from professional football. Slater holds the record for most special teams Pro Bowl appearances with 10. "I have given all that I possibly can to respect and honor the game," Slater wrote. "Though it is time for my relationship with the game to evolve, the love I have for it will last a lifetime." The former fifth-round pick by the Patriots in 2008 out of UCLA spent his entire 16-year career in New England and won three Super Bowls with the team and is the franchise's all-time leader in special teams tackles. Slater played in 239 games with the Patriots, second in team history behind only Tom Brady (285). Slater's 25 career postseason games rank ninth-most in NFL history. The 38-year-old was a team captain for 13 straight seasons.

Rhamondre Stevenson, Rhamondre Stevenson Wants To Be Featured Back

New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson said he wants to be the team's featured back in 2024 as he gets set to enter the final year of his rookie deal. In his third year in the NFL, a high-ankle sprain limited the 25-year-old to just 12 games. In 156 rushing attempts, he averaged a career-low 4.0 yards per carry for 619 yards and four touchdowns, adding 38 receptions on 51 targets for 238 yards through the air. He was essentially New England's lead back before getting hurt, albeit in an offense that was among the worst in the league because of quarterback issues. Stevenson should be able to bounce back with better health in 2024 after accumulating 1,400 scrimmage yards in 2022, but what the Patriots do at QB will have a big effect on his fantasy upside.

Jarrett Stidham, Jarrett Stidham Has Decent Game In Season Finale

Denver Broncos quarterback Jarrett Stidham went 20-for-34 for 272 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the 27-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in the regular season finale on Sunday. He ran three times for two yards and was sacked five times for a loss of 34 yards. His lone touchdown was a 24-yard strike to Jerry Jeudy. With the Broncos benching Russell Wilson for the final two games for financial reasons, Stidham acquitted himself well, going 40-for-66 for 496 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while winning one game. The Broncos are expected to move on from Wilson in March, but Stidham will most likely begin training camp in the summer as a backup to whoever the Broncos choose to bring in to replace Wilson. At the very least, Stidham has proven in the last two games of the regular season the last two years with the Broncos and Raiders that he's a serviceable backup.

Jakobi Meyers, Jakobi Meyers Scores Twice In Week 18

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers was second on the team in receiving yards in the win against the Denver Broncos. Meyers brought in three catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the team's season finale. Meyers also found the endzone on the ground, rushing for five yards on his score. Meyers was not the most reliable fantasy option since the Raiders made front-office and quarterback changes, but he salvaged his day with touchdowns again. It is tough to predict Meyers' fantasy value heading into next season. Still, if Aidan O'Connell remains the team's starting quarterback, hopefully, the duo can build their chemistry from their time together this season.

Jakobi Meyers, Jakobi Meyers With Another Tough Matchup

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers put together a decent performance against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. Meyers caught six passes for 56 yards on 10 targets last week. The Raiders take on the Denver Broncos this week for the final game of the regular season. The Broncos defense is much improved from the unit that started the season, and the team has allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers per game. Despite the tough matchup, Meyers may see increased usage due to Pro Bowl corner Patrick Surtain II. Surtain will likely cover Davante Adams for most of the game, which could free up targets for Meyers in the middle of the field. Fantasy managers in the championship probably did it without Meyers, but he could be a sneaky start if you're desperate.
