C. Newton - QB
Owner David Tepper admitted Tuesday that a decision hasn't been made regarding surgery on Newton's right throwing shoulder, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. "We have to recognize we may have to do things through the year if it doesn't [get better]," Tepper said. "We have to make sure we have our options in all ways possible."
Upon first glance at his game log from the 2018 season, Newton was more or less himself for most of it, accounting for at least two touchdown passes in each game from Week 2 through Week 13. On top of that impressive run, he posted a career-high 67.9 completion percentage, averaged 4.8 yards per carry and scored four TDs on the ground. After Week 7, he regularly was rested in practice due to lingering soreness in his right shoulder, and the lack of reps seemed to catch up to him in his final two appearances Weeks 14 and 15, the latter of which was a 131-yard performance with no touchdowns and one interception on 16-for-29 passing. The Panthers opted to shut down Newton thereafter, leading to Taylor Heinicke (elbow) and Kyle Allen (shoulder) getting starts down the stretch. The initial remedy for Newton appears to be rest, but Tepper's comments indicate a procedure will be considered if his condition doesn't improve in a timely manner.

N. Rose - K
Rose was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.
Rose's release by the Chargers comes less than a week after he was signed to help with kickoffs in the divisional round. He was on the field for three kickoffs and such had no potential fantasy value while Michael Badgley was handling field goals. Rose will set his sights on making a roster in 2019 after failing to make a team during the 2018 regular season.

J. Holton - WR
Holton signed a futures contract with Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Holton appeared in one game for the Raiders this season, playing 10 snaps and not recording a catch. He spent much of the season on Oakland's practice squad and will look to carve out a role as a depth receiver and special teams player on the Eagles' active roster in 2019.

Z. Pascal - WR
Pascal totaled 268 yards and two touchdowns on 27 catches in 16 games in 2018.
Pascal went undrafted in 2017 and didn't see any regular season action until this year. He operated as a depth for Indianapolis and flashed potential, highlighted by a five catch, 68 yard, one touchdown performance against Houston in Week 14, that could lead to a larger role for him with the Colts in 2019.

D. Inman - WR
Inman recorded 304 yards and three touchdowns on 28 receptions in nine games in 2018.
Inman joined the Colts midway through the 2018 season and ended the year as the team's No. 2 wide receiver. He scored a touchdown in the final-two regular season games and recorded over 50 receiving yards in each of Indianapolis' playoff games. The 29-year-old receiver has had two relatively down years after a breakout 810 yard, four touchdown campaign for the Chargers in 2016. He'll become and undrafted free agent this offseason and could secure a role as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver with a club in 2019, which would make him a potential fantasy option in later rounds next year.

C. Rogers - WR
Rogers recorded 485 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 53 catches while playing in all 16 regular season games in 2018.
Rogers had his best season as a pro in 2018, setting career highs in snaps, targets, catches, yards, and touchdowns. He operated as the team's No. 4 option at wide receiver, but often was bumped up on the depth chart due to injuries at the position. Looking ahead to 2019, Rogers will be a restricted free agent and could potentially swap teams during the offseason. Wherever he ends up playing he'll likely see a similar role as a No. 3 or 4 wide receiver, which limits his potential fantasy value.

J. Wilkins - RB
Wilkins recorded 336 yards and a touchdown on 60 rushing attempts and added 85 receiving yards on 16 catches while playing in 16 games in 2018.
Wilkins joined the Colts as a fifth-round pick in 2018 and showed some promise to start the year. His workload declined in the second half of the season, leading to his modest stats on the year. He ended the season as the No. 3 running back behind Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines, and he'll need to work his way up the depth chart in 2019 in order to have much fantasy value.

J. Brissett - QB
Brissett could be traded this offseason but the Colts' asking price is high, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Brissett didn't see any meaningful action in 2018, playing just 18 snaps across four games. However, he started in 15 games in 2017 while Andrew Luck was injured and he impressed enough to garner interest from clubs in need of a starting quarterback in 2019. It's unclear exactly what the Colts' asking price is, but given Brissett's stat line of 3,098 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2017, it seems unlikely that another team would forfeit a top draft pick to bring him in. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Brissett will be a quality backup for the Colts in 2019 if the team doesn't trade him.
