Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith caught eight of 12 targets for 148 yards during the team's 9-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 25-year-old sat out of the regular season finale due to an ankle injury but looked no worse for wear Monday night. Without A.J. Brown (knee), Smith carried the Eagles' passing attack, but it was not enough for the team to overcome the Buccaneers. Smith went over 1000 yards and caught seven touchdowns for the second season in a row, and that was on a much lower target share than last season. He will remain a rock-solid WR2 in fantasy drafts come August.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs caught four of six targets for 83 yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. After an up-and-down regular season, the second-year receiver showed up in the playoffs, gaining 234 yards on 10 receptions and being a favorite target for quarterback Jordan Love. The Packers have a number of impressive rookie wide receivers that showed up this season and plenty of mouths to feed around the entire offense, including 2022 first-round draft selection Christian Watson. Doubs will always face stiff competition for targets, but it speaks volumes that when everyone was healthy during this playoff run, he was one of his quarterback's favorite targets.
