Rookie WR Mike Evans hasn't had a full-blown breakout performance this season, but he has been fairly steady. So far, he has caught at least four passes in each game and totaled at least 49 yards in each of his past five games. Chip in a pair of scores this season and a 78-yard outing on Sunday, and we see a lot of potential for the second half of the season.

With Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd -- as well as TE Vernon Davis -- ahead of Stevie Johnson in the San Francisco 49ers' pass-catching pecking order, it would be easy for the veteran to be frustrated by his limited role.

The Chicago Bears will play five of their final eight games at home, which, theoretically, should give them an advantage. However, the age-old issues of the shoddy grass surface at Soldier Field reared its ugly head during their last home game two weeks ago, as players from both the Bears and Miami Dolphins slipped and fell often.

When Ben Tate returned to action four weeks ago and racked up 124 yards on 22 carries (5.6 YPC), it looked like he was going to be the workhorse back the Cleveland Browns envisioned when they signed him during the offseason. Since then, though, his production has waned each week (78 yards, 3.1 YPC; 36 yards, 2.3 YPC; 26 yards, 1.7 YPC).

We've seen some improvement from LeSean McCoy in recent weeks, as he has averaged 112.3 total yards over his past three outings. Still, he has just one 100-yard rushing performance this season, so he hasn't come close to matching the pace he set in 2014, when he led the league in rushing.

Even less work for Chris Johnson?

When the New York Jets added Chris Johnson to their roster, they seemingly envisioned him being a playmaking option out of their backfield, despite all signs in recent years pointing to a diminishing skill set. As we pass the midway point of the season, Johnson is very much the opposite of a playmaker -- he is a non-factor.

The availability of the Cincinnati Bengals' top offensive playmakers for Week 9 is unclear, though WR A.J. Green and RB Giovani Bernard appear to be heading in different directions with their health.

Marqise Lee the punt returner?

The first half of Marqise Lee's rookie season has offered little to get excited about, as the rookie second-rounder has battled injuries and been limited to 12 catches for 128 yards. It goes without saying, but those aren't the kind of numbers Jacksonville envisioned when they selected the former USC star early in the second round back in May.

Could a move to punt returner get the speedy receiver going?
