Hakeem Nicks status for fantasy owners still in question, Ramses Barden returns to practice

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Giants are unsure if Hakeem Nicks will play in Week 6, while Ramses Barden has been cleared for practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tom Coughlin said on Monday that the Giants will have to see how Hakeem Nicks feels later this week to know if he will play against the 49ers on Sunday. Ramses Barden on the other hand has been cleared to practice.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks continues to struggle to get back to action. With no update on his status right now, it's tough to tell how good his chances are of playing in Week 6. Meanwhile Barden will be practicing this week. He had a huge game against the Panthers several weeks ago, but with Domenik Hixon healthy now, he won't be seeing the same amount of targets against San Francisco. Check back throughout the week to find out the plans for each of these receivers.
