Huddle Up: It's a prove-it deal for Nicks, who managed to make it through the 2013 season without scoring a touchdown. He has the potential to provide a solid alternative to TY Hilton and Reggie Wayne in the Indy offense, but he'll be limited by those two as well as Indy's run-first approach--not to mention his penchant for getting hurt.

Huddle Up: The cash-strapped Panthers are in rough shape at WR with 2 of their leading wideouts (Steve Smith and Ted Ginn Jr.) already gone and another (Brandon LaFell) currently shopping himself on the FA market. Definitely not good news when it comes to the fantasy passing prospects for QB Cam Newton next season.

Huddle Up: Nicks has said he'd be open to a 1-year deal and a return to the Giants to prove himself after 2 straight sub-par seasons, and that might end up being the best option given all the questions surrounding the wideout.

Huddle Up: There has been natural speculation that the former University of North Carolina standout would be a perfect fit for the WR-needy Panthers, but the franchise simply doesn't have the under-the-cap wiggle room as it now stands.

Huddle Up: There's no question the Patriots' receiving corps could use some upgrading, but Nicks would have to come at a discount for the Patriots to bite as he showed nothing last season the team couldn't expect from a second season from Aaron Dobson.

Huddle Up: When healthy and productive, Nicks takes a lot of defensive attention away from Cruz, but Nicks has been shaky on both counts in recent seasons and that has the G-Men weighing their options.
Posted: 2/11/2014 10:29pm ET
Huddle Up: There doesn't figure to be a glut of teams falling over themselves to sign Nicks, who has battled injury issues (5 games missed in 2012) and underwhelming production (0 TD catches in 2013) the last 2 seasons.
Posted: 1/4/2014 10:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks failed to capitalize on his opportunity to build a strong free agency resume; in fact, he failed to score a touchdown this season. Still, he'll draw plenty of attention on the open market as a talented receiver with size and skills.
Posted: 12/4/2013 12:11pm ET
Huddle Up: If Nicks isn't on the injury report, where will fantasy owners (and Eli Manning) know where to find him? Certainly not the end zone, where he hasn't been since Week 14 of last season. That's not much of a free agent push.

Huddle Up: Nicks has been a disappointment this year but he has a good match-up Sunday night against the Redskins. He's a low-end WR3/flex play this week.
Posted: 11/29/2013 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Expect Nicks back after missing Week 12, but his performance struggles -- 17-178 over his last 4 games and no TDs this season -- are another matter entirely. Start him only if you're in a deep league or desperate.
Posted: 11/28/2013 4:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks, limited for the second straight day, needs to show something during the week after he missed Week 12 due to a lack of practice progress. See if he can do more Friday.
Posted: 11/27/2013 1:54pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like he should be back this week, but keep an eye on him over the next couple of days.
Posted: 11/22/2013 3:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks, who sat out Wednesday's practice and was limited the past 2 days, has said he plans to play Sunday in the NFC East showdown against the Cowboys, but that likely translates into another 4-catch, 50-yard day -- his average over the last 5 games. Nicks also is still looking for his first scoring reception of the year. Stop chasing a breakout game and go with another healthier/more dependable option if you have one.
Posted: 11/21/2013 1:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks was back on the field after missing Wednesday's team workouts. As for the games, though, Nicks has hardly inspired any fantasy confidence as hasn't topped 70 receiving yards in his last 5 games and still is looking for his first TD catch of the season in Week 12.

Huddle Up: Nicks is having a disappointing season but if he plays on Sunday he could have one of his better weeks going up against Dallas' last ranked pass defense. Check back Thursday to see if Nicks practices.

Huddle Up: This was out of the blue. Hopefully it's nothing, but come back tomorrow for more news.
Posted: 10/22/2013 12:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks played the entire game, so the injury didn't prevent him from participating. And he's had problems with drops before so it's difficult to tell if the injury affected his performance. As of now there's no indication the injury will keep Nicks out of the lineup going forward.
Posted: 10/14/2013 2:04pm ET
Huddle Up: If he is traded, his fantasy value would depend on his landing spot. He might have an erratic quarterback right now, but the Giants are going to pass a lot this season. The best news for his fantasy owners would be if he stayed put.
Posted: 9/30/2013 1:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks isn't helping himself of the Giants offense. This is especially curious given he is in a contract year—you'd think he was playing better. Hopefully he breaks out of this malaise.
Posted: 9/23/2013 9:19am ET
Huddle Up: It was a lost weekend for the Giants, who could do nothing right against Carolina--especially surprising given the injury-riddled Panthers secondary and New York's lack of a running game. View it as a buy-low opportunity for Nicks, as he's still a major part of Eli Manning's receiving corps.
Posted: 9/18/2013 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: It would be a bigger issue if he was having leg problems. It can't feel good to catch balls with a swollen finger, but Nicks should be ok.
Posted: 9/3/2013 5:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Of course, because any slight step in the wrong direction could mean he is out for three weeks with a knee sprain. It's good that he is trying to keep better care of his body, though. If he can actually stay healthy, he is one of the better receivers in the league.
Posted: 8/16/2013 5:52pm ET
Huddle Up: It will be good to see the oft-nicked Nicks on the field. Now if he can only stay there.
Posted: 8/13/2013 6:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks missed the preseason opener this past Saturday but he can get right back on track for Week 1 by playing this week and Week 3 of the preseason.
Posted: 8/10/2013 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Nicks just returned to practice recently, so it's not a surprise that he won't be suiting up Saturday night versus Pittsburgh. Look for Nicks to make his preseason debut on Sunday when the Giants face the Colts, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks.
Posted: 8/6/2013 2:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Finally. How long this will last is anybody's guess, but Nicks wasn't doing himself any favors in a contract season by getting off on the wrong injury foot. Keep an eye on him the rest of camp. Big upside, but big risk attached.
Posted: 8/2/2013 5:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Nothing really new here as the oft-injured Nicks' fantasy value continues to be shaky.
Posted: 8/2/2013 12:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Seems like Nicks is always nicked, which is why the Giants may be hesitant to fork over a big contract. It would be nice for Nicks to get some time with Eli Manning, but not critical. Still, Nicks being dinged up doesn't help his fantasy value as we churn towards draft day.
Posted: 8/1/2013 5:47pm ET
Huddle Up: The guesswork surrounding Nicks and his health sounds as if it's starting to wear on Coughlin & Co. as the wideout has missed 7 starts and many more practices over the past 3 seasons and has played at less than 100 percent in more than a few of the contests he has suited up for. The guessing game hasn't been any easier for fantasy players, either, and no one risks much -- if any -- blame by simply passing on Nicks and looking for a more-stable WR option.
