It's quite amazing
It only seems fitting then should Nicks break his scoring slump in Week 15 against the Seahawks, when he doesn't exactly have the most favorable matchup.
As you can imagine, wide receivers haven't had outstanding numbers against a very good Seattle defense. Wide receivers average just 110.2 receiving yards and 14.7 Fantasy points per week, which is the second-lowest average. Wide receivers have also totaled just eight touchdowns in 13 games and only five wide receivers have tallied at least 10 Fantasy points.
Though, Nicks' history against the Seahawks is interesting. He has played them twice, recording a touchdown in each game and averaging 96.5 receiving yards. It would be great if Nicks scored in a third straight game against Seattle, but he's been very unreliable for Fantasy owners in 2013, so you are taking a gamble by starting him Week 15.
Nicks made his presence felt early on with a 51-yard grab in the opening quarter and caught a 43-yard pass at the end of the second quarter to eclipse the 100-yard mark before the half. He finished the game with five catches for 135 yards on seven targets in a 37-14 defeat.
It was Nicks' first 100-yard game since Week 5 against the Eagles. He has three 100-yard games this season. He'll look to stay productive at home against the Seahawks in Week 15.
He still has not scored a touchdown this season. Nicks visits San Diego in Week 14.
Nicks has been a tremendous disappointment all season. He has just two games with double digits in Fantasy points but none in his past five outings, and he has yet to score a touchdown this year.
It's a good matchup against the Redskins, who have allowed 12 receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points with 13 touchdowns. But Nicks has gone the past five meetings against Washington without scoring and just one game with more than 100 receiving yards, which was 2011.
We would only consider Nicks a No. 4 Fantasy receiver in this matchup. Until he starts to produce on a consistent basis we wouldn't trust him in the majority of leagues.
