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.

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison capped off an impressive first year in the NFL with four catches on his eight targets for 57 yards and his 10th touchdown of the year in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the regular season finale. In half-PPR scoring, the first-rounder finished as the WR20 in his first full year in the league with an impressive 70 receptions (108 targets) for 911 yards and the 10 scores. It certainly helped that All-Pro wideout Justin Jefferson missed a big chunk of games (six to be exact) in the middle of the season due to a hamstring injury, but Addison made good on his first-round draft pedigree and should form one of the best receiver duos with Jefferson for years to come. Fantasy managers can't bank on double-digit touchdowns from Addison in Year 2, but he should remain highly productive with Jefferson taking plenty of attention away from him.
