New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks returned to action against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6. Coming off an injury, Nicks had only three receptions for 44 yards. He was also held out of the end zone.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning only completed one touchdown on the day and that went to wide receiver Victor Cruz. There is no doubt that Nicks' presence at least contributed to the Giants game plan and thus the win.
Fantasy Analysis: This is Nicks' first game back since his 200-yard receiving day against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Nicks has plenty of fantasy value, and with the continued play from his quarterback, he should see plenty of opportunities to hear his name called. Nicks is capable of big games, which makes him a must-start when healthy. Having Cruz opposite him also helps when they see teams without significant depth at corner.
