Hakeem Nicks still scoreless, falling off fantasy radar

Al Bello

The Giants wide receiver couldn't find the end zone against the Raiders in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks caught four passes for 49 yards in the team's 24-20 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 10. Nicks has yet to find the end zone this season.

Fantasy impact: Coming into the season, Nicks and teammate Victor Cruz were expected to be quite a one-two fantasy punch, like they were last year. That simply hasn't materialized.

Against the Raiders, quarterback Eli Manning completed only 54 percent of his passes. Nicks' scoreless streak has now reached nine games, the longest such streak in his career.

Now that the October trade deadline has passed, fantasy owners can no longer hope that Nicks will experience a massive turnaround to the season because distractions are limited. Whether he's playing hurt, or he just isn't as good as it used to be, it seems that Nicks' season is a lost cause. There may have been some trade value in him a few weeks ago , but at this point, owners may have to drop Nicks and look for a quality second-half receiver elsewhere.
