Fantasy football busts: WR - Week 14

by Tim Heaney on December 10, 2009 @ 00:00:00 PDT


In this article KFFL breaks down the fantasy football sleepers of the week. We will avoid marquee names because players of that caliber are rarely benched, regardless of their matchup. Instead, we will focus on the players that make your fantasy lineup decisions stressful each week. Read on to learn which midrange to low-end players that you wouldn't necessarily consider that you need to get into your lineup.

Note: All statistics are from Week 10 to Week 13, unless otherwise noted.

Fantasy football busts: Wide receivers

Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Hakeem Nicks, WR, New York Giants
Nix him from your lineup?

Fantasy value: Low-end No. 3

  • Though he found the end zone, the Giants' No. 3 wideout saw just three targets in Week 13 after receiving no less than five in each game since Week 4. Nicks had caught at least four passes in six of his previous seven games, too, before his two-catch performance.
  • The Iggles have allowed only 10.25 receptions, 113.3 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game to wideouts. Nicks, a physical big-play threat, runs into the team with the lowest yards-per-grab average (11.0) allowed to this position in the last four weeks.
