The Giants heavily relied on the pass game Sunday afternoon, as Eli Manning threw for 510 yards on 31 completions. Hakeem Nicks was a primary beneficiary of the vertical attack, catching 10 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Nicks probably won a matchup or two for owners this week. He was all over the field for New York, destroying the Buccaneers pass defense alongside Victor Cruz, who made 11 catches for 179 yards and a score. Nicks entered Week 1 coming off of a foot injury and didn't do much in the season opener, but he erased and doubt surrounding his play with this statement performance. Manning isn't going to throw for 500+ yards often. However, Nicks is always going to be a huge target, needing to be in your lineup every week.
