Free agent WR Hakeem Nicks is visiting the 49ers.
It took nearly three weeks, but Nicks is finally getting a sniff on the free agent market. The 49ers, in search of inexpensive depth behind starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, will likely be disappointed in what they find. Lower-leg injuries have completely zapped Nicks' once-promising career, as his last three seasons have been nothing short of poor. No other team has even poked around at Nicks in the wake of his 38-405-4 "prove it" 2014 season with the Colts. Mar 30 - 8:52 AM

Profootballtalk reports there's "little or no market" for free agent Hakeem Nicks.

This is our first Nicks blurb since the Colts lost the AFC Championship Game. He's yet to even be loosely connected anywhere by reporters connecting the dots. Nicks appeared headed for a long and productive career as recently as 2011, but his explosion has essentially disappeared. Nicks is only 27, but he could be near the end.
Mar 17 - 11:08 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells suggests free agent Hakeem Nicks could re-sign as a No. 3 wideout behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief.

After a second consecutive year of bad tape, Nicks is going to find a cold market. We'll see if he's willing to settle for a bargain-basement contract to be a third receiver on a team that wants to play two tight ends (Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener) most of the time. The Colts paid Nicks $3.975M last season to go 38-405-4.
Jan 22 - 12:32 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for 15 yards in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

Following an embarrassing zero-touchdown 2013 season as a starter for the Giants, Nicks signed with the Colts on a one-year "prove it" deal. He proved nothing except that he's done. Nicks caught just 38 passes for 405 yards with four touchdowns, losing snaps to raw rookie Donte Moncrief and showing no lower-body explosion. Now Nicks heads back into free agency with the same awful tape he had a year ago. Although he's just 27 years old, Nicks will find a cold market.
Jan 18 - 10:58 PM

Hakeem Nicks secured 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

Just plays after dropping a third-quarter pass, Nicks secured a 15-yard TD on a bullet throw from Andrew Luck. Slow and plodding and clearly on his last legs, Nicks offers very little to the Colts' offense aside from red-zone chops.
Jan 11 - 8:17 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught 3-of-3 targets for 59 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Nicks made his best play as a Colt early in the second quarter, skying over a traffic jam for a 45-yard grab. It was the kind of play Nicks used to make with regularity in New York. Despite the nice catch, Nicks was still just a role player. That will remain the case for next week's trip to Denver.
Jan 4 - 5:13 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught three passes for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win at Tennessee.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned, so Nicks' volume was capped at six targets. His "prove it" season with the Colts turned out to be a mess, as Nicks looked washed up en route to a 38-405-4 line. He'll head to the playoffs as a bit player that rotates with Donte Moncrief.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:15:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught 9-of-11 targets for 72 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Nicks was the focus of the Colts' passing attack with T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) sidelined, so it is not a huge surprise the offense fell flat on its face. Nicks was inexplicably used on four screen passes throughout the game, predictably doing nothing after each catch. T.Y. Hilton appeared close to playing against Dallas, so Nicks should mercifully be relegated to a tertiary role Week 17 against Tennessee.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 07:50:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught two passes for 44 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Texans.

Nicks came to life out of a 3-wide set in the second quarter, catching a 26-yard touchdown on a crossing pattern. He added an acrobatic sideline catch later, but those were his only targets on the day as Donte Moncrief once again ran as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver. Don't go chasing Nicks' stats, even against the Cowboys in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:42:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks went catch-less in Week 14.

He saw two targets. It was two targets, too many.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 05:43:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks caught one pass for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

It was Nicks' lone target. He was the first man up in three-wide sets, but the Colts quickly turned to Donte Moncrief. Nicks is beyond done and needs to be shown the bench permanently in favor of Moncrief. Neither player will be a fantasy option until it happens. Nicks is waiver-wire fodder.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:07:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks had two catches for 15 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Nicks did little outside of a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He drew just five targets and remains no higher than the No. 5 option. Nicks can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 01:48:00 AM

Hakeem Nicks caught three passes for 44 yards in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Giants.

Nicks drew just four targets in his return to the Meadowlands. That was good for sixth on the team. And that was even without Donte Moncrief playing heavy snaps. Nicks is well off the fantasy radar heading into the Colts' Week 10 bye.
Tue, Nov 4, 2014 01:21:00 AM

Hakeem Nicks caught 1-of-6 targets for 27 yards in Indy's Week 8 loss to the Steelers.

It was yet another brutally-ineffective game for the former star, who started in place of Reggie Wayne (arm), but was mercifully bypassed by Donte Moncrief as the evening wore on. Nicks found himself getting Darrelle Revis'd by William Gay, and was hopelessly blanketed on one of Andrew Luck's two picks. With half the year now in the books, Nicks is on pace for 36/336/4. He's a nonentity in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 09:14:00 PM

Hakeem Nicks is starting opposite T.Y. Hilton in Reggie Wayne's (arm) Week 8 absence.

There had been chatter that third-rounder Donte Moncrief would get the start, but Nicks is getting at least the ceremonial title. Moncrief out-snapped Nicks in Week 7, and could easily do so again despite Nicks' "start." Nicks is a low-end WR5, while Moncrief is a desperation WR4.
