New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin says he expects wide receiver Hakeem Nicks to play on Wednesday against the Dallas Cowboys, Ralph Vacchiano of The New York Daily News reports. Nicks broke his foot in the offseason but did play a few snaps in New York's preseason finale. Nicks did not practice in pads on Monday, but did participate in some individual drills.
Fantasy Impact: Nicks is a No. 1 fantasy receiver and it has been expected all along that he would play on Wednesday against Dallas. It will be interesting to see how many targets he gets and how much attention defenses pay to fellow WR Victor Cruz. Nicks figures to be a Top 10 producer in fantasy football and owners should start him accordingly.
