Hakeem Nicks, WR, Giants
2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
For fantasy owners, Nicks is just about DOA at age 27. Last year, he was expected to have an upside opportunity with the Colts, but he only managed 38 catches for 405 yards with four TDs in 68 targets. Over the last three years, Hakeem has only caught 54.6 percent of his chances. He flashed WR1 upside in back-to-back years with the Giants in 2010 and 2011 when he caught a total of 155 passes for 2,244 yards with 18 TDs on 261 targets. His skill set is the most advanced on the team behind Wright. I'd love to say bet on the come with Nicks, but he's just about broke me over the last two seasons. Tennessee only signed him to a one year deal, which is enough motivation to get his game in line. His asking price on draft will be free and his supporters will be minimal. The reward clearly outweighs the risk. His starting point should be 50 catches for 600 yards with some value in TDs.
