The Wideout Report: Week 6, Hakeem Nicks, and Julio Jones

For the last few weeks I’ve done Tuesday rundowns of all the wideout situations. I’m doing the same thing this week. Also, since I’m not entirely omniscient, check out RotoViz’s Buy Low Machine and WR GLSP Projections. Here we go. Giants WRs Hakeem Nicks has had 2 good weeks, 2 serviceable weeks, and 2 rancid weeks. Rueben Randle is cannibalizing him—metaphorically. Right now they’re WR3s. If Nicks gets traded (it could happen), then both could be solid WR2s. Victor Cruz? I think of him as more of a low-end WR1 with Dez Bryant upside as opposed to a true top-3 WR. In other words, if you can trade Cruz to someone who thinks he’s a top-3 WR, do it. Then again, if Nicks gets traded, Cruz may get even more attention from Eli Manning. Buy Nicks and Randle. Sell or hold Cruz.
