Hakeem Nicks

Hakeem Nicks comes into his sophomore year in New York and with Hixon going down for the year, it appears Nicks will have less competition to be on the field in 2010, not that Hixon was a huge speed bump or anything.  

Nicks is in line for a solid 2010 campaign and it's not out of the realm of possibility that he posts near 1,000 double-digit TD for the season.  I love Nick's upside and I am targeting in my drafts.

Malcom Floyd

We are already assured that Vincent Jackson will be out the first four games of the year and he has the potential to sit out the majority of the 2010 season allowing Floyd to be the WR1 on an offense with a solid QB in Phillip Rivers.  

If Vincent Jackson hits the field after his suspension, it will limit Floyd's upside; so temper your expectations and don't reach too early for Floyd, but if Jackson is out the entire season we are looking at a WR that should produce 1,000-plus yards and near double-digit TD's.

With Jackson, it's more like 700 yards and four TD's.

Chris Wells

Chris Wells is not a late round target and should be a round four RB target.  

Arizona will run the ball more this year, and this is the year Chris Wells shines and makes fantasy owners proud to have him on their team.  

Don't be surprised if Wells post over 1,000+ yards and double-digit TD's in 2010, making him a very solid fourth round fantasy football selection.

Mike Bell

You are looking at the new number two RB in Philadelphia behind a McCoy who has proven to have injury issues. For that matter, Bell has his own set of injury concerns.  

The good news is that Bell is a late round pick with incredible upside.  

Bell has an opportunity to post double-digit TD's in 2010, which makes him a great target for TD-only leagues.

In my opinion, he is a great target in any format as I think he is good for averaging a TD a game.

Zach Miller

Jason Campbell gives Miller the upside he already had for 2010; he is a very strong receiving TE and you can feel confident drafting him 2010.  Campbell looks for his TE in the red zone so don't be shocked to see Miller post near 800 yards and double-digit TD's for 2010.
