New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was limited in practice on Wednesday, per Ohm Youngmisuk. The Giants pass-catcher was been fighting through foot and knee issues this season. He's missed a couple games this season but returned against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.
Nicks performed in that game, and seemed to be fine. Given that today (10/17) was his first Wednesday practice all season, it seems that Nicks should be good to go this weekend against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Analysis: Nicks appears to be on the right track. He seems to be getting healthier, and his participation in last week's game was a good sign. Even though it was the Victor Cruz show in Week 6, Nicks should continue to be a viable option for fantasy owners.
Nicks is a big-play threat in this No. 3 ranked Giants offense. Additionally, Eli Manning his playing at an extremely high level, so if Nicks is open, the Giants QB will find him. Nicks becomes a must-start as soon as this weekend against the Redskins.
