Hakeem Nicks did not practice Thursday: Fantasy Implications

Nick Laham

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks did not practice on Thursday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide out Hakeem Nicks was held out of practice on Thursday, via Ralph Vacchiano. The Giants receiver did not practice with an undisclosed injury. However, it could be the foot injury flaring up again.

This puts Nicks' status in question for the team's Week 14 match-up with the New Orleans Saints. Big Blue will need him against the high-powered Saints offense.

Fantasy Analysis: It appears as if Nicks will be a game time decision. He still has Friday to get in a practice session. If Nicks is going to play on Sunday, he is a must-start versus the Saints' deplorable defense.

Owners should continue to monitor Nicks' status because he could be a big-time contributor for those in the fantasy playoffs. Hakeem Nicks is a sure-fire WR1 in most fantasy leagues.
