    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Catches just one pass

    Nicks had one catch for four yards on three targets in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Vikings. According to Pro Football Focus, Nicks was one of four New York wideouts to play between 27 and 36 snaps (out of 62). Regardless, any hint of appeal will be gone next week, as Odell Beckham (suspension) is expected to return for a favorable matchup with the Eagles.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Starting Sunday night's game

    Nicks is listed as a starter for Sunday night's game against the Vikings. With Odell Beckham serving a one-game suspension, Nicks figures to play the majority of offensive snaps. The Giants obviously have a ton of production to replace, but with neither Nicks nor Rueben Randle playing well this season, many of Beckham's usual targets will likely go to the running backs and tight ends.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Could see some work

    Nicks could see more targets Sunday with Odell Beckham suspended and Dwayne Harris nursing a shoulder injury. Nicks would only be playable in the deepest of leagues, as he's not assured of anything, and Harris could play yet. But if Harris were out, Nicks could serve as the team's No. 2 receiver.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Totals just seven yards against the Jets

    Nicks caught one pass off of one target for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Nicks has now caught just two passes for 11 yards on three targets in the two games since returning to New York. Nicks' appeal in coming back to the Giants was his rapport with Eli Manning, something that hasn't been on full display yet. Given the Giants' dependency on the pass, it is entirely possible that Nicks emerges with a big game in the coming weeks, but with nearly half of Manning's passes over the past three games directed at either Odell Beckham or Will Tye, it shouldn't be counted on.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Could take on larger role

    Nicks may be more involved in the offense Sunday against the Jets, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Though clearly not the player he once was, Nicks may still have something to offer a Giants offense that has somehow become even more reliant on Odell Beckham. Nicks had just two targets on very limited snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins, but he did replace Rueben Randle on one drive. Given how little impact Randle has had this season, it wouldn't be shocking to see Nicks take away even more snaps in Week 13. Of course, there's still not much upside with any of the Big Blue receivers besides Beckham.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Active Sunday

    Nicks is listed as active Sunday in Washington. Signed earlier this week to bolster the Giants' depth at wide receiver, Nicks will make his season debut, as he returns to his initial NFL organization. However, he's unlikely to make an immediate impact behind the likes of Odell Beckham, Rueben Randle, and Dwayne Harris.

    Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Won't necessarily be active Sunday

    Nicks won't necessarily be active for Sunday's game at Washington, NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports. Though he didn't say that Nicks will be inactive, head coach Tom Coughlin did say that special teams will factor into the decision. Even if he ends up playing, Nicks will likely just be the fourth or fifth wide receiver.

    Hakeem Nicks: Signing with Giants

    Nicks is signing with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. With Victor Cruz (calf) ruled out for the season, the Giants will bring back their first-round selection from the 2009 NFL Draft. Nicks was a Pro Bowl-caliber wideout in 2010 and 2011, but he always had trouble staying healthy, which contributed to a far quicker decline than anyone could have expected. Although he's still just 27 years old, Nicks doesn't figure to be any higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart, as No. 3 wideout Dwayne Harris has come on strong the past few weeks.

    Report: Hakeem Nicks works out with Patriots

    The Patriots reportedly worked out wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Per the report, Nicks 'continues making the workout rounds,' so it doesn't appear as though as a signing is imminent here. As wideout injuries mount around the league, however, it wouldn't surprise us to see the 27-year-old Nicks (who played for the Colts in 2014) catch on with another NFL franchise sooner rather than later.

    Report: Cowboys work out Hakeem Nicks, three other receivers

    The Cowboys won't find another Dez Bryant out there, but they are at least trying to land the best temporary replacement for their injured star receiver. Among those working out on Tuesday is former Giants standout Hakeem Nicks. Austin Pettis, Nick Toon and Clyde Gates are also getting a look, per the Dallas Morning News. Bryant went down in Week 1 with a fractured right foot that was surgically repaired Monday. He is expected to remain out for at least six weeks. The 27-year-old Nicks is perhaps the most intriguing of the four. He was among the last cuts by Tennessee this year, but he is just two years removed from an 896-yard season with the Giants.
