Hakeem Nicks pointless for fantasy owners in Week 16

Elsa

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was held without a catch for the first time in his NFL career on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was held without a catch for the first time in his NFL career on Sunday. Nicks, who has been bothered this season by a knee injury, was quiet about his lack of catches saying only (via The New York Post) "I don't even want to talk about it."

It was the second straight bad week for Nicks, who was limited to just 40 yards on three catches in New York's Week 15 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Nicks on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens was targeted just three times.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks was a fantasy owner's nightmare in Week 16, especially with so many league titles on the line. He has not been his usual self this season and this could impact where he is drafted next season.

Fantasy owners setting lineups this week can use Nicks if they have to but it should only be as a No. 3 fantasy wide receiver or flex play.
