New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden did not practice Wednesday because of a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden was held out of practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion in Sunday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to coach Tom Coughlin. Barden had two catches for 36 yards on Sunday after jumping onto fantasy radars with nine catches and 138 yards in the team's Week 3 win over the Carolina Panthers. The Giants face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Barden's fantasy value took a bit of a hit last week when Domenik Hixon started for Hakeem Nicks. Hixon had a strong game against the Eagles and should stay ahead of Barden on the depth chart even when Barden is 100 percent. Barden's value would increase If Nicks again can't play but Hixon is the better fantasy value for Week 5.
