New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks said he felt pain on certain routes in Wednesday's loss to Dallas. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks says he felt his injured foot on certain routes Wednesday but says it was not excruciating pain. According to The New York Post, Nicks said he played 53 of 57 offensive snaps in the loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He had missed most of the preseason after breaking his foot in the spring.

Fantasy Impact: This is consistent with what Nicks said after the game on Wednesday, so fantasy owners don't need to be too concerned heading into Week 2. Nicks was held to 38 yards on four catches by the Cowboys but no Giants receiver had a great night on Wednesday. Nicks will have had extra rest going into Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be a strong fantasy option going forward.
