John Wolford, Disappoints in two starts

Wolford completed 38 of 62 passes for 390 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the 2022 season, while adding eight rushing attempts for 32 yards.

Analysis: Matthew Stafford (neck) going down for the season gave Wolford the chance to prove his worth as the Rams' primary backup quarterback. Wolford, who had just one start to his name coming into the season, started in Week 10 and struggled, throwing for 212 yards, a touchdown and an interception while losing a fumble. Wolford then missed the next games with a neck injury, and returned in Week 13. The two weeks of rest did nothing to prevent another rough outing for the 27-year-old quarterback, as he threw for just 178 yards and a pair of interceptions. The third-year signal caller out of Wake Forest is a restricted free agent, but the Rams may choose to move on from the struggling Wolford and bring in veteran depth as an insurance policy for Stafford.

Denzel Mims, No TDs through three seasons

Mims wasn't targeted in Sunday's season finale against the Dolphins. He finishes the season with 11 catches for 186 yards on 25 targets.

Analysis: Mims has yet to score a touchdown since being selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He got opportunities when the Jets dealt with injuries to other wide receivers but struggled to do much with his chances while battling drops. It's hard to describe Mims as anything but a bust at this point, and given that he doesn't contribute on special teams, the 25-year-old wide receiver will be a 2023 training camp cut candidate barring a noticeable improvement in the offseason.

Elijah Moore, Has disappointing sophomore season

Moore caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. He finishes the season with 37 catches on 65 targets for 446 yards and one touchdown.

Analysis: Moore was expected to take a step forward after racking up 538 yards and five touchdowns in just 11 games as a rookie. Instead, Moore regressed in every facet except availability. His only absence came in Week 7, when Moore was sent home after requesting a trade. The second-round pick from the 2021 NFL Draft returned the following week and remains in the Jets' plans moving forward. An upgrade under center could revitalize Moore's career, but he's well behind 2022 first-round pick Garrett Wilson in the team's wide receiver pecking order.

Zach Wilson, Wraps up poor sophomore season

Wilson finished his second season with 1,688 passing yards and a 6:7 TD:INT in nine starts. He added 102 yards and one touchdown on 28 rushing attempts, in addition to catching a two-yard touchdown.

Analysis: Wilson didn't show much progress from his forgettable rookie season, but the team around him improved substantially, allowing Wilson to post a 5-4 record in 2022 after opening his career with a 3-10 record. The second player selected in the 2021 NFL Draft will likely remain on the Jets' roster in 2023, but Wilson won't be handed the starting role and will probably come into camp as the backup. New York's expected to add an alternative under center, either by re-signing Mike White or pursuing a veteran starter via trade or free agency.

Lawrence Cager, Leading receiver in loss

Cager caught eight of 10 targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: With the Giants resting most of their starters for Week 18 after having been eliminated from the playoffs, Cager wound up being starting QB Davis Webb's favorite option on the afternoon, leading the team in catches, targets and receiving yards. It was a career-best performance for the journeyman tight end, but he'll remain a depth option for whatever team brings him aboard in 2023.
