Hakeem Nicks Injury Update: Looking good in warmups, big fantasy day coming?

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Hakeem Nicks looks good in warmups. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks (knee) is a game-time decision, but he looks good and isn't favoring his foot or knee in warmups, according to Ralph Vacchiano.

Nicks' last game was a 199-yard explosion against the Bucs. He has 14 catches and 237 yards in his two games this season.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks is expected to play and owners should feel somewhat comfortable with trotting him out there. The Niners do have an unbelievably good front seven, but their safeties Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner can be burned. Nicks will probably run more vertical routes with any concern for cutting on his balky knee.

Fantasy owners should put Nicks in their lineup, but check back to make sure he's a go. Rueben Randle would make for a useful spot-start should Nicks be a surprising inactive.
