Hakeem Nicks back on Giants injury report, fantasy owners cringe

Rich Schultz

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) missed practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks returned to the team's injury report on Wednesday and did not practice because his knee had swelled up again. Nicks missed three games earlier this season because of a knee injury but last week was not on the injury report heading into the game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Nicks caught just one pass for 10 yards in the loss to Pittsburgh. He is one of 11 Giants on the injury report. The Giants face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks has not been much of a factor for fantasy owners since returning from injury and this won't give his owners much confidence heading into this weekend.

Monitor updates from practice later this week and continue to treat Nicks like a low-end No. 2 fantasy option until he has proven that he has returned to form.
