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.
