Hakeem Nicks questionable, fantasy owners should expect game-time decision for Week 6

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the San Francisco 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the San Francisco 49ers and will likely be a game-time decision. Nicks practiced on Friday, a day after being limited because of his injured knee. Nicks hasn't played since Week 2 because of swelling in the knee.

If Nicks can't play, expect Domenik Hixon to start in his place again this week.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks has a much better chance of playing this week but fantasy owners will again be pushed right up until kickoff. Nicks, if active, would be a decent No. 2 fantasy option at wide receiver but owners may want to consider other players if lineups have to be set before the Giants game begins.

Hixon would be the Giants wideout to start in Week 6 if Nicks is ruled out again.
