Week 8- Simply put, if he’s healthy, he should have a big game. If he’s not, he won’t.
Week 4- Nicks has been downgraded to doubtful in week 4, and needs to be taken out of your fantasy lineup.
Week 1- Plenty of people are moving Nicks way down in their weekly rankings due to his injured foot. Don’t be scared off, Nicks should put up his normal WR1 numbers that fantasy owners are accustomed to. He should be matching up with the Dallas Cowboys’ Morris Claiborne, who was the sixth overall pick in this years draft. Rookie corners tend to really struggle in their first year, and a guy like Nicks will know how to exploit it.
Hakeem Nicks broke his foot while exercising this past spring, and has been on the PUP list since. As he continues to work his way back towards a week 1 start, fantasy owners will need to be slightly concerned when drafting him. When healthy he is one of Eli Manning’s favorite targets, and a solid #2 WR, but there is a chance that when you draft him he could miss some time with this foot injury. Continue to monitor the situation, and at this time we recommend picking him up in the 5th or 6th rounds in most formats.
