New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is among 13 players not expected to play Friday against the Chicago Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks is among 13 players not expected to play Friday against the Chicago Bears. Nicks is recovering from a broken foot, but has been practicing. He has yet to play in the preseason for New York.

Analysis: It would not be a surprise if Nicks did not play, as the team is probably more worried about setbacks. Nicks would probably prefer to get some game-speed reps in before the season starts, but a Week 1 return for the fourth-year receiver seems more likely at this point. Nicks is a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues and should still be drafted that way. Nicks should benefit from last season's emergence of Victor Cruz and could have a bigger year this season if he stays healthy.
