Hartline has proven to be a dependable NFL receiver the past two seasons, but that hasn’t made him a great Fantasy option. For the second year in a row, Hartline had 70-plus receptions for 1,000-plus yards, and he set a career high with four touchdowns. But he posted just 4 games with double digits in standard Fantasy points and his lack of touchdowns (10 over 5 seasons) continues to hurt him.
Signed a 1-year, $3.5 million deal with the Colts. Coming off his 2nd-worst performance in his 5 year career, Nick's posted a 56 reception-896 yards-0TD stat line last year and looks to rebound as Andrew Luck's No.2.

Just a solid all around option, but doesn't score much. Consider him a quality WR3 with limited upside.
He drops balls and isn't even slated to start. Could be a bust again.
  
Derek Lofland

Hartline has developed into a solid WR3, as he posted 76 receptions for 1,016 yards and four touchdowns last season. The passing numbers are so good in the NFL now days that those numbers constitute an average season.
Nicks has WR3 value with upside playing with the QB Andrew Luck. I just do not think he is committed to be a star in the NFL anymore. The fact that he is not in football shape in training camp coming off a season where he had zero touchdown receptions is an unsettling development.

Legion Report
Coming off two consecutive seasons with 130+ Targets, 70+ receptions and 1,000+ receiving yards, we’re expecting Brian Hartline’s production to drop off in 2014. With the likely emergence of TE Charles Clay, reemergence of WR Mike Wallace and a more run focused offense, Hartline will struggle to see those numbers this year.
26 year old Nicks enters 2014 on a one year contract with the Colts and is already showing motivational questions, a problem he commonly faced in New York. “I don’t know if I can say that I’ve seen enough,” Colts OC Pep Hamilton explained to the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. “I think he is still working to get himself in game shape.” Nicks will lineup as an outside WR in 3 WR sets only (which the Colts won’t use much this year) while Hilton and Wayne remain WR’s 1-2. The Colts are moving to a two TE set in Fleener and a now healthy Dwayne Allen. There’s just too many mouths to feed in Pep Hamilton’s Run Heavy Offense.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Boring but serviceable, he's had consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
Only 3 TDs in last two years. Can Luck help him get back to past form?
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
 
Will benefit from Andrew Luck and if Nicks can stay healthy he will outperform his average draft pick.
  
Raju Byfield

Will start on outside to open season but not talented enough to hold off Landry for number two duties
Expected to lead Colts in TD's, surpass 1,000 yards
