Hakeem Nicks returns to practice on Thursday, improving fantasy value

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Nicks will once again be fighting through injury this weekend.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks returned to practice on Thursday, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

Nicks missed Wednesday's practice with a knee issue that has been nagging him throughout the season. He is expected to be able to suit up on Sunday in a must-win game for the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Hakeem Nicks has been inconsistent this season due to injury. He has only caught three touchdowns so far and is well shy of 1,000 yards receiving. Offseason injuries slowed him down early and have lingered throughout the season.

Sunday's matchup is an excellent one, however, as the Eagles are getting absolutely shredded through the air. If Nicks suits up, which he is expected to, he should have a decent game.
