Hakeem 'Wet Dream' Nicks if 100% could have a huge season. Even though Victor Cruz is the better fantasy WR, Hakeem is the favorite target of Eli Manning. Nicks is someone to monitor this preseason as he seemed a step slower returning from foot/knee injury in 2012. He is a Redzone monster.Hartline is in for a great sleeper year. He was able to record over 1,000 Yards in 2012, even when defenses knew he was the WR who was going to see the most targets. Now that defenses cannot key in Hartline, and leave him on Islands against 2nd CBs. We may seen Brian Hartline breakout to another level. Mike Wallace will be getting a lot of attention, which will leave to a lot of space for Hartline.  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Nicks is out to prove that he's still among the best receivers in the NFL after an injury-plagued year in 2012. Keep in mind before 2012, he had consecutive seasons of at least 76-plus receptions, 1,050-plus yards and at least 7 touchdowns with 18 total touchdowns over that span (2010,2011). Owners should view Nicks no more then a No.2 Fantasy WR worth drafting as early as Round 5.   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Nicks has WR3 appeal now that he is healthy this year and even though the Cowboys were 16th against fantasy receivers, they are going to have their hands full with Nicks and Cruz.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Hakeem Nicks is in his contract year in New York. He has Boom or Bust written all over him. He also has injuries written all over him. Beware youre in for a scare!!!Hartline pulled off a couple big games last year. I can see the same happening again this year, especially if Tannehill and Wallace dont figure things out.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's healthy, so Nicks absolutely has major upside to kickoff the season.Merely a possession guy now, but could be active with Haden on Wallace.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He didn't look good in preseason, but also said he was holding back to stay healthy for the real games. It is his contract year so he'll be out to put up stats. Look for this to be a shootout.
