Hakeem Nicks expected to play Sunday: Fantasy implications

Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE

Hakeem Nicks still expects to play Sunday despite his bum knee acting up again. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Nicks' troublesome knee flared up again this week and he missed some practice time, but the Giants don't anticipate that it will keep him out of the game.

Nicks' knee has bothered him all season and cost him three games earlier.

Fantasy Impact: It's somewhat concerning that Nicks' knee still isn't fully healed--he clearly wasn't 100% earlier this year and it noticeably slowed him down. Still, he should be ready to go and produce against one of the worst defenses in the league.

Nicks is a solid WR2 play this week and should be starting in all fantasy leagues for the playoffs.
