Hakeem Nicks says there is no problem with his foot and he will be ready for the start of the season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks says there is no problem with his foot and he will be ready for the start of the season, according to ESPN New York's Ohm Youngmisuk. Nicks suffered a foot injury early in the offseason and has been recovering throughout the summer. It appears he has made a full recover and will be Eli Manning's primary target. He played in the team's final preseason game on Wednesday against the New England Patriots.

Analysis: Hakeem Nicks is currently coming off the board in the third or fourth round of most fantasy leagues, which is fair value for the Giants' No. 1 receiver. He will once again be a big target down in the red zone for New York.
