Saints | Hakeem Nicks cut

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 10:35:39 -0700

Saints | Hakeem Nicks signing with Saints

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:34:41 -0700

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) will sign a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks probably will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp and probably will only be the No. 4 or No. 5 receiver on the depth chart if he makes the team. Owners can avoid him in their drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option if he plays well.

Saints | Hakeem Nicks working out for Saints

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:26:21 -0700

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) is among the group of receivers working out for the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: If Nicks shows the Saints something, it's an offense that he could have a bit of a fantasy revival in. If he signs, he'll have to show a spark in camp to be worth a WR5 flyer.

Bengals | Hakeem Nicks visits with Cincy

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 14:05:00 -0700

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Giants) worked out with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, April 5, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks had just seven catches for 54 yards for the G-Men in six games in 2015, and he's unlikely to carry any significant fantasy value this season. The Bengals are still looking for receivers, but Nicks would be a third or fourth receiver for them, at best.

Giants | Hakeem Nicks ready to step up

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 21:55:18 -0800

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks said he is ready to fill the void created by the one-game suspension to WR Odell Beckham Jr. in Week 16. "I look it as a great opportunity, and when opportunity knocks on the door, you've got to answer it."

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings have a solid secondary, but for the minimum price at FantasyScore, Nicks ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be worth a flier in an expanded role.

Giants | Rueben Randle, Dwayne Harris quieted

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:52:19 -0800

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle managed just two receptions for 22 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted six times. WR Dwayne Harris had just one grab for eight yards on two targets, while WR Hakeem Nicks converted his only target for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: Randle has been useful from a fantasy perspective, and Harris has had his moments in deeper leagues. The duo could rebound rather nicely and be strong FantasyScore contrarian plays in Miami in Week 14.

Giants | Hakeem Nicks plays 11 snaps

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 05:27:55 -0800

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks played 11 snaps in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: He had one catch for four yards in his first game of the season. He'll probably be more involved in the future, but he's not much of an option in fantasy yet.

Giants | Hakeem Nicks active against WAS

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 08:31:04 -0800

Confirming a previous report, New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks is officially active for Week 12's game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the low price tag, Nicks ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore this week because it remains uncertain what his role in the offense will be or how much of the playbook he has mastered. The Giants are using a different offense now than when Nicks had his first tour of duty with the team.

Giants | Hakeem Nicks likely to play

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 08:01:14 -0800

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks is expected to be active for Week 12's game against the Washington Redskins, although an official decision has not yet been made, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore, since it remains to be seen how often the team will use him. The Giants are using a different offense than they employed the last time Nicks played for them, so it will take time for him to get back on the same page with QB Eli Manning.

Giants | Hakeem Nicks getting up to speed

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:19:25 -0800

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks is learning the team's offense in practice but said the task hasn't been that tough. He said he has worked with both the scout team and the offense during practice. QB Eli Manning and WR Odell Beckham Jr. both said that Nicks has looked good in practice.

Fantasy Tip: This is an entirely different offense than the last time Nicks was with New York, so he won't learn it overnight, and it will take time for him to gain chemistry with Manning. There's no guarantee Nicks will even surpass Dwayne Harris on the depth chart for meaning snaps, either. Nicks should be left to the waiver wire unless he proves he's in line to see notable snaps.
