Hakeem Nicks is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game between the Giants and Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.
Hakeem Nicks is listed as questionable on the New York Giants' injury report released Tuesday for Wednesday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Nicks has struggled throughout training camp and preseason with a foot injury, though he was able to participate in last week's preseason finale.
Analysis: It's unclear whether Nicks is 100 percent, but if he is playing he is likely worth a starting spot on your fantasy roster. The good news is that he is playing well before all other wide receivers in the league, so you should have time and options to plug into your lineup should Nicks be ruled out before game time. He is potentially one of the league's elite deep threats this year, and has a nice complement in Victor Cruz to draw coverage away underneath.
