Week 10: Start 'Em
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 surpassing the 1000 yard receiving mark in 2012 Lance Moore was hoping to build on that, instead this season has been an all-out bust. He wasn't performing well at the start of the season and then missed three games due to injury. Since his return from injury two weeks ago, Moore has become a bigger part of the offense -- especially with Marques Colston out with an Injury and Jimmy Graham playing at less than 100%. Two weeks ago Moore caught his first TD of the season and this past week he had six receptions for 70 yards. With Colston still iffy and the Saints playing the second worst pass defense in the NFL -- the Dallas Cowboys--, Moore makes for a good flex start or even a WR3 in a pinch.
