Hilton closed out the regular season in a big way, hauling in 11 passes for 155 yards in Week 17. But that was only the beginning, as the second-year wideout broke Colts playoff records with 13 catches for 224 yards and two scores in the Colts epic comeback win over the Chiefs. For his heroics, Hilton's OVR increases three points to 86 OVR, with a three-point boost to AWR (82) and two-point increase in CTH (89).

Bowman helped the 49ers close Candlestick Park in a big way, running back a game-sealing interception for a touchdown in a Week 16 win over the Falcons. Since that magical Monday Night, he's followed up with a pair of 10-tackle efforts and three forced turnovers - an interception and forced fumble at Arizona in Week 17, followed by a forced fumble in the 49ers playoff win over the Packers. Bowman's OVR is up two points this week, all the way to 96.

There haven't been many free agents that have made more of an impact for their teams than Woodhead has in San Diego. He hauled in 76 passes this season, including seven in the Chargers dramatic Week 17 win over the Chiefs, then followed it up with 54 rushing yards and a touchdown in the Bolts' playoff win over the Bengals. Woodhead's OVR is up a point this week to 85, and his CAR (90) and BCV (94) ratings both received two-point bumps.
