Hakeem Nicks is inactive for Sunday's game between the Giants and the Browns due to a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks is inactive for Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Cleveland Browns due to a lingering knee injury, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today. Nicks will miss his third straight game due to the ailment. Victor Cruz, Domenik Hixon and Rueben Randle will top the depth chart for the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: If you own Nicks in your fantasy league, you should know the drill by now. Make sure the wide receiver is out of your lineup or else take a big fat zero in your lineup. If you are in need of a last-second pickup off waivers, Hixon may still be available in your league. He had 114 yards receiving last week, and should be a solid stop-gap going up against a porous Browns secondary.
