Hakeem Nicks listed as probable for Week 7: Fantasy implications

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) is listed as probable for Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as probable for Sunday's game with the Washington Redskins. Nicks has been bothered in recent weeks by a knee injury but he has participated in practice the last three days.

Nicks returned to the field for last weekend's win in San Francisco, where he pulled in three catches for 44 yards. Nicks had missed the previous three games because of swelling in his knee.

Fantasy Impact: This might be the healthiest Nicks has been all season and it's a great weekend for fantasy owners to have him in the lineup. The Redskins have statistically one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL and Nicks could be the receiver that benefits.

Nicks is a low-end No. 1/high-end No. 2 fantasy option at wide receiver this week and will likely be a must-start for the rest of the season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.
