Hakeem Nicks Injury Update: Active and should be in all fantasy lineups

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Hakeem Nicks is ready to roll. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He is expected to start at the X receiver slot and all signs point to him getting a full load of snaps.

Nicks has 14 catches for 237 yards and a TD. He is coming off a 10-catch, 199-yard game in his last outing.

Fantasy Impact: Nicks has been injury plagued in most of his career, but he can really rack up the fantasy points when he's active. He'll likely see a lot of Carlos Rogers and San Francisco's safeties are better at stopping the run over the pass. Victor Cruz owners should temper their expectations slightly and Rueben Randle loses some of his handcuff appeall. Nicks should be in all fantasy lineups.
