New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks said he wasn't worried about his injured foot while playing in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks says he wasn't worried about his foot during Wednesday's game with the Dallas Cowboys. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Nicks said he noticed the pain more after the game than during it. Nicks, who broke his foot back in May, had four catches for 38 yards in the 24-17 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks had a relatively quiet night but it shouldn't be too discouraging to fantasy owners, who have to be pleased by the fact that the injury didn't bother Nicks while he was playing. Nicks missed almost all of the preseason and the Giants now have a few extra days to give Nicks some rest before playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.
