Hakeem Nicks fantasy value to increase as X-rays check out fine

USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks banged his injured knee and needed X-rays after the Giants win over the Saints, but he checked out fine. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks needed X-rays after the Giants 52-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but everything checked out fine. Nicks was listed as questionable entering the game, but caught four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Nicks said he "came down a little bit my knee" but thinks he is getting better. Nicks has had injury issues almost all season, but looked to be rounding back into form against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks appears to be getting healthy at just the right time for the fantasy playoffs. The fact that he said he is feeling good after the game is a promising sign.

With two touchdowns in the last three weeks Nicks has returned to a must-play wide receiver. He will have a slightly tougher matchup next week against the Falcons, but keep him in your lineup.
