New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks held out of practice again. We break down the fantasy implications.
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice again on Thursday because of a knee injury. Nicks has missed the last two games because of injury and hasn't been able to practice this week ahead of this Sunday's game with the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Impact: This is more of the same for Nicks and his fantasy owners. The closer he gets to Sunday without practicing, the more likely it is he won't play this weekend against the Cleveland Browns. If Nicks is inactive, Domenik Hixon would likely start again in his place. Hixon had six catches for 114 yards last week against the Philadelphia Eagles and could see more targets this week, making him a No. 3 fantasy WR for Week 5.
