New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. Nicks is dealing with foot and knee injuries and missed practice all week. He will not play when the team takes on the Browns. Nicks hasn't played since Week 2 against the Buccaneers, when he caught 10 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Hakeem Nicks is one of the elite wide receivers in fantasy football, but he needs to stay healthy in order to realize that potential. His injury issues appear to be nagging, so the immediate outlook is not promising for Nicks. Fantasy owners will have to have patience with the wide receiver.
