The Bills have activated the 21-day practice window for Crowder (ankle).
Analysis: Per Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com, Crowder will be able to practice Wednesday, but isn't in line to be available for this Sunday's playoff opener against the Dolphins. The veteran slot man last suited up in Week 4, but if things go well for Crowder in practice, he could potentially return to action as soon as the divisional round of the playoffs, should the Bills advance this weekend.

The Saints signed Gore to a reserve/future contract Monday.
Analysis: Gore joined the Saints' practice squad during the 2022 campaign after being waived by Kansas City with an injury settlement at the end of August. He totaled 59 touches for 361 yards and two scores across 11 appearances with the Chiefs last year, but he wasn't elevated for any games while with New Orleans this year. With his new contract, he'll now have a chance to compete for a roster spot during offseason work and into next year's training camp.

Holtz reverted to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Holtz was elevated for the first time since signing with the Saints' practice squad Nov. 23. However, he was ultimately ruled inactive pregame, as top tight end Juwan Johnson (quadriceps) was deemed good to pregame. Holtz did not record a target over six games with New Orleans this season, and he has logged just one target since the 2019 campaign.

Sims rushed once for 16 yards during the Steelers' 28-14 win over the Browns on Sunday.
Analysis: Sims played at least 34 percent of the Steelers' offensive snaps in each of the final nine games of the season, but he saw inconsistent touches and wasn't a reliable fantasy option. Over 12 appearances, he secured 14 of 23 targets for 104 yards while rushing 13 times for 70 yards. He's slated to become a restricted free agent during the offseason, and it's unclear whether he'll be back with the Steelers in 2023. The 25-year-old served as the team's return man down the stretch but is unlikely to carry much fantasy value if he remains in Pittsburgh next year.

Sims was held without a catch in Sunday's 26-6 win over Dallas, thus finishing the 2022 season with eight catches for 89 yards on 17 targets.
Analysis: Sims turned 27 in early January and has now made 55 career appearances since first catching on with Washington in early 2018. He's made 17 starts over the years but is rarely targeted even when he gets a lot of playing time, and his only chance at extensive snaps in 2022 came when rookie Jahan Dotson suffered a hamstring injury in October. Even then, Sims never saw more than two targets in a game despite playing at least 59 percent of snaps four weeks in a row. The Commanders seem to value the 6-5 wideout for his blocking and special-teams experience, so he could be back with the team in 2023 even though he's scheduled for unrestricted free agency.
