Saints | Kenny Stills, Akiem Hicks looking good

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:20:34 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills and DT Akiem Hicks look like breakout candidates for the team this year. Both have been carrying themselves with plenty of swagger in offseason workouts. Stills has been playing all three receiver positions and running all of the routes. Hicks has shown himself to be one of the strongest players on the roster, and he's been nearly unblockable.

Fantasy Tip: Stills had boom-or-bust potential last year in New Orleans' offense. He could be more of the same in 2014 with the way Drew Brees loves to spread the ball around. However, increased versatility and more familiarity in the offense should help. His ceiling remains high, but he's still risky and is more valuable in standard-scoring formats.
