Hakeem Nicks returns to Giants practice, solid fantasy value for Week 16

Elsa

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) returned to 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 to rest his sore knee. Nicks, who had his left knee wrapped, has been bothered by the injury for much of the season and the team has routinely limited his practice days early in the week.

Nicks had three catches for 40 yards in Week 15 in what was an off day for the entire Giants team. The Giants face the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks has been inconsistent for fantasy owners over the last four weeks. He has had two games with a touchdown and two games with less than 45 receiving yards.

Baltimore has struggled against the pass this season and that makes Nicks a No. 2 fantasy wide receiver for Week 16 in most formats.
