Two more guys to get now

1. Jeremy Maclin (WR, Phi) – Our Adam Caplan is at practice, and he says Kevin Curtis looks bad. Maclin’s still a work in progress, but don’t be surprised at all if he’s starting and being targeted often later in the season. He’s very talented. Heck, I like him THIS WEEK against the Bucs.

2. Hakeem Nicks (WR, NYG) – Those who guessed Manningham over Sims-Walker two weeks ago guessed wrong, and they may not even have a starter in Manningham. Manningham is flashy, but they drafted Nicks for a reason, and Nicks looks pretty good. He has good size and physicality, so he projects best as their starter at split end, on the weak side. With Steve Smith commanding a lot of attention, and with the Giants ignoring the TE, don’t be surprised at all if Nicks is getting 7-9 targets a game starting around November.

Enjoy!

The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
