PLAYERS: Hakeem Nicks
TEAMS: New York Giants
Hakeem Nicks is a guy a just spoke about in my ‘Risky Business’ article and he will remain one of these high risk/high reward guys this season.  We have been waiting for some good news to come out of Giants camp in regards to Nicks, and today we got that news. Connor Orr of NJ.com on Hakeem Nicks ”looked the best I’ve seen him at camp today. In end zone drills he had a nice grab right before the pylon. In the next set of drills, he nabbed a pass while leaping and spinning.” Nicks will be a guy that a lot of people will pass on fantasy drafts and for good reason.  He hasn’t been able to stay healthy over the last couple of seasons.  Be that as it may, Nicks can also be regarded as a value pick this season.  There are not too many WRs that can be drafted as a WR2-WR3 that can finish in the top 5.
