Week 10: Start 'Em

While we're not projecting starting type stats for these players, they have good potential and could surprise. This week's picks include Profiled players include Andre Ellington, Pierre Thomas, Trent Richardson, Kendall Wright, and Lance Moore.


When thinking about fantasy busts for the season, Hakeem Nicks definitely has to be up there. He has dropped many passes that would have been big plays and going into week 10, he has yet to score a touchdown. Nothing remedies that like a bye week and playing the Oakland Raiders, who just gave up 406 yards and a NFL tying record seven TD passes to Nick Foles and the Eagles. Nicks has half a season left to prove he deserves the big contract he is playing for. Look for this week to be the start of his turnaround. Nicks is a very good start as WR3 or WR2.


After Riley Cooper's less than stellar off season, no one would have predicted how things have gone. While he isn't breaking the bank, he has already set career highs in all receiving categories after only nine games. So far this season, Cooper has 25 receptions for 453 yards and five touchdowns. The bulk of these stats have come in three of the last four games, all games that Nick Foles was the quarterback for most of the games. In those games Cooper has totaled 347 yards on 15 receptions and four touchdowns and capped off this past week when he blew up for five receptions for 139 yards and three touchdowns as part of Foles NFL record day passing for seven touchdowns. Foles will be starting again this week and that makes Cooper worth another start at either WR3 or flex.
