Hakeem Nicks back at Giants practice, fantasy value stable for Week 15

Elsa

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) participated in practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks participated in practice on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of a knee injury. Nicks had X-rays on his knee after Sunday's win against the New Orleans Saints. He missed several games earlier this season because of a sprained left MCL.

Nicks had four catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 and should play in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks was expected to return on Thursday, a day after coach Tom Coughlin said the team planned to have Nicks not do as much in practice.

Nicks hasn't been healthy very often this season but should be in most fantasy lineups this weekend as a fringe No. 1/2 wide receiver.
