New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks practiced on Thursday, as expected. Nicks broke his foot in the offseason and has been limited in practice leading up to games. He missed last week's win over the Carolina Panthers and did not participate in practice on Wednesday. The Giants will take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Nicks returning to practice was planned, as was his absence on Wednesday. Fantasy owners should not be concerned if Nicks sits out during the week as the team plans to let him practice one day a week. This week Nicks should be used as a strong No. 2 fantasy wide receiver in most formats on Sunday against the Eagles.
