Don’t Sleep On Hakeem Nicks, Santana Moss, or Cardinals D

Some might be wary of Arizona after they just got shellacked by the Falcons, however with their week 3 match-up putting them against the Raiders, i find it hard to not want them.  The Raiders offense this season so far has only managed 13 points against an average Titans defense, and only 16 points against a horrendous St. Louis D. With McFadden being the only bright spot in their offense attack, I wouldn’t be too concerned as he is about as consistent as the weather in New England.  Go with the Cardinals D.

Down in Washington, it will soon be the re-birth of Santana Moss.  After the Redskins went out and picked up a legitimate QB in McNabb the Skins have finally remembered how to air the ball out.  Although in week 1 Moss only had 6 catches, he was targeted 10+ times.  Week 2 he had 10 catches, so it’s fair to say that McNabb clearly has his eyes on Moss.  With his week 3 match-up against the Rams, expect McNabb to continue looking his way, equalling a good amount of points from Moss.

Finally, Hakeem Nicks.  Although he may not be the #1 receiver, he’s sure getting all the glory.  If you’re a stats kinda guy you’ll love this one.  so far this season Nicks has only 6 catches, however 4 of the have been TD’s.  This hot streak may not continue but I don’t see it stopping against a mediocre Titans D.  So ride the streak while you can, start Nicks.

  1. I agree with you on hakeem nicks. Thanks to Steve Smith at the other end of the line, Nicks gets plenty of looks from eli. I believe that once the offensive line regains its composure, nicks td count will only continue to rise.

  2. I like your sleepers but i think another great sleeper is Mario Manningham of the Giants. He seems to always find his way in the end zone.
