New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. This is encouraging news for the wideout, who was forced out of practice early in the week when his knee swelled up. He returned Thursday on a limited practice and expects to suit up this week.
Nicks has battled injuries all season and has a disappointing stat line--27 catches, 390 yards and just one TD.
Fantasy Impact: When asked about his production this year, Nicks stated "stats are for girls". Dumb thing to say, but it sounds like he's getting close to 100%.
Nicks and the Giants have been struggling recently, but they have the talent to light up the Bengals this week. Start him as a WR2 in fantasy.
