Hakeem 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.
Hakeem 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 New York 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.
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 or Myles White could serve as the team's No. 2 receiver.
Hakeem 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 New York 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.
Hakeem 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 New York 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.
