Giants WR Hakeem Nicks says he plans to go full speed during limited reps in practice on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Giants WR Hakeem Nicks says he plans to take a few snaps during each practice period Monday, and says he will go full speed during each rep. Nicks broke a bone in his right foot in May and was taken off the PUP list earlier this month. He has not played in a preseason game. The Giants face the Chicago Bears on Friday.

Analysis: Nicks has been working to be ready for the season opener and it is encouraging to hear that he's trying to go full speed during his reps in practice. Fantasy owners might prefer to see Nicks play in the preseason before using a high-round pick to get him, but it's more important to have him healthy once the regular season begins. Barring any setbacks, Nicks and Victor Cruz should both be treated like Top 10 WRs on draft day.
