New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 2 against Tampa Bay. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice on Friday, and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coach Tom Coughlin said on Friday that he expects Nicks, who is still recovering from a surgically repaired foot, to play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners would be happy to have Nicks, who is still not 100 percent from his broken foot. There has to be some concern that he isn't practicing even with extra rest from Week 1, but, the fact that Coughlin expects him to play makes him a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues this week.
