Editor's Update: New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was limited at practice on Thursday, according to coach Tom Coughlin. Nicks is expected to play in Week 7.
Nicks returned to the field last week against San Francisco, where he made three catches for 44 yards. He had missed the last three games because of swelling in his knee. The Giants on Sunday face the Washington Redskins, who statistically have one of the worst pass defenses in the league.
Fantasy Impact: This is great news for fantasy owners who have been waiting for Nicks to get healthy. He hasn't been a regular at practice so far this season, much less on the field two days in a row.
Owners should consider Nicks a strong No. 2 fantasy option at receiver, as he could have a big day against Washington.
