Hakeem Nicks doubtful for Week 4, fantasy value sinking

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is doubtful for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks missed last week's game with the Carolina Panthers because of a foot injury and now is dealing with swelling in his knee. Ramses Barden started last week in place of Nicks but the team is expected to have Domenik Hixon (concussion) back in the lineup. Hixon, who is listed as probable, was the team's No. 3 receiver before getting hurt.

Fantasy Impact: This is not good news for fantasy owners counting on Nicks this weekend. He did not practice on Friday but this did not cause any concern because he was only supposed to practice on Thursday this week, which he did. If Nicks is inactive, there is no clear choice as to who will replace him. Barden was outstanding against Carolina but Hixon could get the start on Sunday. Monitor this situation closely.
