Fantasy Impact: Nicks has already stated that he will play on Sunday. Barring a setback, owners should expect to have him available. His season has been underwhelming to say the least. The usual endzone threat has 42 catches for 620 yards on the year but zero touchdowns. Nicks has topped the 100-yard receiving mark only twice on the year. The first one came in the season opener against this week's opponent, the Cowboys.
Nicks hasn't missed a game this season. However, he hasn't looked like his old self and has struggled to gain separation all year. Victor Cruz will continue to be the top receiving option for quarterback Eli manning. Second year receiver Rueben Randle has also been a factor and has vultured six touchdowns in the last five weeks. Nicks' situation isn't desirable.
Nicks will be a average PPR option against the Cowboys. The Giants' improved run game is likely to prevent all three receivers from topping 100 yards again. Nicks is a decent WR3.
