Hakeem Nicks injury update: Probable and should be back in fantasy lineups

Stephen Dunn

Hakeem Nicks is probable for Week 7 against the Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (foot, knee) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Nicks was limited in practice all week, but says that his knee is feeling much better and he should be getting close to 100 percent.

Nicks missed three games with a lingering knee injury and was slow to return in Week 6, with three catches for 44 yards.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a long, slow wait for fantasy owners, but it sounds like Nicks is finally healthy enough to contribute again. His last healthy game he had 10 catches for 199 yards and a TD, and there's no doubts about his huge playmaking abilities.

Fantasy owners can lock him back in as a WR1 against Washington's poor secondary this week.
