Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the Tennessee Titans on Friday, April 24.
Huddle Up: Nicks, who had 38 catches for 405 yards and four TDs last season in Indy, isn't exactly improving his fantasy lot by moving from Andrew Luck to the uncertainty of the Tennessee passing game and will be vying with holdover Justin Hunter and fellow newcomer Harry Douglas for the No. 2 WR job opposite Kendall Wright.

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts) had just 38 catches and four touchdowns in a complementary role with the Indianapolis Colts, but he insists that his career is not over. He also says that he is as healthy as he's been in a long time. 'I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody,' Nicks said. 'That's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it. I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it.' Nicks admits he let his injuries and contract situation with the New York Giants get to him. It does not look like he'll be returning to the Colts in 2015.
Huddle Up: Nicks just turned 27 in January so he theoretically should be in the prime of his career, but the interest has been scant so far this offseason. The WR did visit with the 49ers and reportedly has talks lined up with several other undisclosed teams, so look for Nicks to land an incentive-laden, one-year deal -- eventually.

Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks figures to play a key role in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 18, especially if the Patriots use CB Darrelle Revis to try to shut down WR T.Y. Hilton. Nicks has been showing more explosiveness in the offense in limited snaps of late. WR Reggie Wayne has just three of QB Andrew Luck's 77 postseason targets.
Huddle Up: Although Nicks caught a TD pass in the divisional-round win over the Broncos and certainly looks to be a better fantasy option than the fast-fading Wayne, he only has five targets himself in two playoff games so far.

Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks said he is in the best shape of his life. "I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...I came in weighing 209 when I was supposed to come in weighing 212," Nicks said. "After Pep came to me to clarify, he said that he (meant) everybody's getting into game shape right now--it's the beginning of camp. He came apologizing to let me know he wasn't just singling me out."
Huddle Up: All interpretations aside, we can start judging Nicks for ourselves Thursday night as Indy opens the preseason against the Jets.

Indianapolis Colts WR Hakeem Nicks isn't where he needs to be, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. 'Yeah, I don't know if I can say that I've seen enough,' Hamilton said. 'I think he is still working to get himself in game shape.'
Huddle Up: Hardly surprising given that Nicks has yet to play a full season in 5 NFL campaigns. At the same time, definitely don't be quick to write off the WR without factoring in his talent and extremely favorable new situation playing with the top young QB in the league.
