Hakeem Nicks didn't make much of an impact against the Giants. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks didn't receive much attention in the regular season opener, finishing fourth on his own team in receving yards. Nick caught just four passes for 38 yards against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Victor Cruz saw five more targets than Nicks on the night. Nicks is still working his way back after missing significant time with a foot injury, so don't give up all hope on him right away. He'll likely need some time to get back in sync with his offense. Nicks made the most of the looks he saw. The Giants simply limited Nicks' production in this matchup.
