Hakeem Nicks' knee not getting any better, Week 5 fantasy status in question

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Giants are still worried about Hakeem Nicks' injured knee. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) is still an injury concern. At the team's press conference Monday, coach Tom Coughlin was unusually glib about his wideout's injury status. When asked how concerned he was about Nicks' knee, Coughlin simply stated "how much concern can I show you?", indicating that Nicks is not any closer to returning. He missed the last two games with a lingering knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: We'll be tracking Nicks' status throughout the week once practices start up, but it sounds like fantasy owners should be expecting him to be sitting out a third straight game. If Nicks can't go against the Cleveland Browns next week, expect Domenik Hixon to start in his place again, with Ramses Barden getting more snaps in the slot.
