Description: Hakeem Nicks caught five balls for 53 yards Saturday night, his best performance of the preseason, by far.
Insight: Nicks is working as the No. 3 receiver behind returning veteran Reggie Wayne and budding star T.Y. Hilton. It's hard to predict how much fantasy value Nicks can produce, but he certainly looked healthy. Nicks hasn't been a WR1 since 2011 and doesn't figure to get back to that status in Indy.

Description: Hakeem Nicks is working as the No. 3 receiver behind returning veteran Reggie Wayne and budding star T.Y. Hilton.
Insight: Nicks has yet to show much in training camp, according to the Colts blog Stampede Blue. Until we see him in a game, it's hard to predict how much fantasy value Nicks can produce. Nicks hasn't been a WR1 since 2011.

Description: Hakeem Nicks has agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, according to Mike Garafolo of foxsports.com.
Insight: Nicks' next touchdown will be his first since 2012. He had zero scores on his 56 catches for 896 yards in 15 games last season. He'll look to revitalize his career with Andrew Luck as his quarterback in hopes of landing a long-term contract. He'll have to share targets with Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and Coby Fleener, however, and the four may end up taking fantasy value from each other while improving Luck's.

Description: Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks left Sunday's game against Washington with an ankle injury. His return is questionable.
Insight: The Giants aren't playing for anything and Nicks likely won't be back with the team so there isn't much incentive for him to return. He caught two balls for 50 yards in the first half.

Description: New York wideout Hakeem Nicks won't play Sunday against the Cowboys.
Insight: Nicks is out with a strained abdominal muscle. Rueben Randle (29 catches, 460 yards, 6 TD) will be a must-start in fantasy leagues as long as Nicks is out of the lineup.

Insight: Nicks' groin injury makes him a huge question mark. If Nicks does sit out, it should mean more targets for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Keep in mind, Nicks has played all season without scoring a touchdown.

Description: According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (groin) was back on the practice field Thursday.

Description: Dan Graziano of ESPN.com notices that Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks can't get any separation from defenders this sesaon, likely because his legs are not the same due to multiple injuries the past few years.
Insight: Nicks dropped three passes, including a touchdown, Monday against the Vikings, but his trouble separating is the bigger concern. He's had to out-fight defenders to make most of his catches and has just 27 receptions on 56 targets (48.2%). That includes six catches on 18 targets the last two games. However, Nicks had nine catches for 142 yards on 12 targets in Week 5 against the Eagles, his opponent this Sunday. With six teams on bye, Nicks is a WR3 this week.
 
10/22/2013 11:05:00 AM
Description: Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks had a finger x-ray after Monday night's game.
Insight: Nicks dropped a few passes and this could have been the cause. It isn't likely to keep him out of the next game against Philadelphia, but if he keeps dropping passes fantasy owners will have to consider not starting him down the road.

Description: Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks caught nine of his 12 targets for 142 yards Sunday against the Eagles.
Insight: Despite getting shut out in Week 3 and catching three passes for 33 yards last week, Nicks is averaging 74.4 receiving yards and 4.2 receptions per game this season. However, he's yet to catch a touchdown while Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle have combined for six.

Description: Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks saw nine targets Sunday after getting shut out in Week 3, but he caught just three of them for 33 yards.
Insight: Nicks was frustrated after last week's zero-catch effort, saying he has no control over who Eli Manning throws the ball to. Manning threw it to Nicks more often on Sunday but it did not yield the desired results. Nicks has just 12 catches for 230 yards and zero touchdowns this season.

Description: New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks had an X-ray on his hand after he caught a pass awkwardly leaving him in pain.
Insight: Nicks missed much of preseason as a precaution, but has caught nine balls for 197 yards over the first two contests. He's yet to reach the end zone, however. The finger injury didn't keep him from finishing the game.
 
8/16/2013 4:57:00 PM
Description: New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (groin) will play in the team's second preseason game Sunday against the Colts. Nicks suffered a groin injury early in training camp and missed the first preseason game.
Insight: The receiver missed three preseason games last year due to a broken foot and then dealt with a knee injury for most of the year. He had just 692 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games. Nicks has WR1 upside but is better drafted as a WR2.

Description: New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (groin) will not play in Saturday's first exhibition game.
Insight: Nicks has played sparingly in OTAs and training camp, but is expected to be ready when the season opens. He's entering a contract year, so expect his best after battling injuries all last season and posting a well-below-expectation 53 receptions for 692 yards and three scores. Still, we would like to see him running around the field before spending a high draft choice for him (fantasyfootballcalculator.com ADP 50).

Description: Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (groin) sat out practice Thursday, the first full practice he has missed so far in training camp, according to ESPNNY.com.
Insight: Nicks injured his groin Sunday and practiced in a limited capacity the next two days before the team had a day off Wednesday. "It's a day-to-day type thing," coach Tom Coughlin said. The injury is not serious, but it isn't encouraging for a player with a checkered injury history.
