New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks remains confident that he'll soon be playing like one of the best at his position. Nicks said this week (via ESPNNewYork.com) that this season he will "get back to playing ball the way I play, at a high level."
Nicks has shown improvement in the last two weeks, combining for 14 catches, 152 yards and a touchdown. The veteran wide receiver has missed time this season because of foot and knee injuries. The Giants face the Washington Redskins in Week 13 on Monday night.
Fantasy Impact: Nicks has looked very good the last two weeks and has a chance for a strong game on Monday against the Redskins. Earlier this season, Nicks had five catches for 53 yards against Washington but he's much healthier heading into this meeting.
Nicks should be considered a fringe No. 1 fantasy receiver in Week 13 against a poor Washington pass defense.
