Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (ankle) wouldn't mind forgetting his performance in the Week 18 regular season finale loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, but it didn't put a damper on what was a memorable year for the sixth-year receiver. Sutton injured his ankle in the 27-14 loss and finished with only one reception on four targets for two yards. The 28-year-old pass-catcher finished an ultra-productive season with a total of 59 catches on 90 targets for 772 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns. His previous high in TDs was set in his second season in 2019, when he had six. It was surely an impressive year for Sutton, but the majority of his fantasy production was propped up by his reliance on finding the end zone and his chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson, who is expected to be cut in March.

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua dominated in the team's 24-23 wildcard loss to the Detroit Lions. Nacua caught nine of his 10 targets for 181 receiving yards and a 50-yard first-half touchdown. He also rushed the ball once for a loss of two yards. The 5th-round rookie set yet another record as he finished with the most receiving by a rookie WR in a playoff game. Despite his season coming to an end, Nacua continued to prove himself as one of the most dangerous receivers in all of football. Heading into next season, fantasy players should consider him in the first three rounds of drafts and ahead of Cooper Kupp.
