New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks already has fantasy owners worried again this season. Nicks has missed time during training camp with a sore groin but tells ESPNNewYork.com that he plans to return to practice on Tuesday.
Nicks missed time in 2012 with foot and hamstring injuries, although he still managed 53 catches for 692 yards and three touchdowns. Nicks says the team's medical staff will determine if he will play in New York's preseason opener against Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Fantasy Impact: Nicks was mostly a headache last season for fantasy owners and this isn't a good way to make people forget about last season's injuries.
Nicks remains a solid fantasy options at wide receiver, although owners might not have to take Nicks as early this season because of the nagging injury potential. Nicks should be considered a strong No. 2 fantasy wide receiver heading into Draft Day in most league formats.
