Hakeem Nicks was spotted warming up prior to Sunday's game between the Giants and Buccaneers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Hakeem Nicks was spotted on the field warming up prior to Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Nicks has been struggling with a foot injury since the preseason. He was able to play in last week's season opener despite the nagging ailment, however.
Fantasy Impact: The fact that Nicks is warming up and was able to play last week suggests that he will give it a go against the Bucs. He may not be 100 percent, however. Nicks caught just four passes for 38 yards in what was a rough day for the Giants' offense against the Dallas Cowboys. The Buccaneers present a much better matchup from a defensive standpoint, however.
