Hakeem Nicks managed one catch for four yards in Week 16.

Nicks played the most snaps behind Rueben Randle, but had only three targets. He has five catches since reuniting with the Giants.

Hakeem Nicks said he is ready to "take full advantage" of the opportunity Odell Beckham's suspension has afforded him.

"This is a great opportunity for me," Nicks said. "I was always told when an opportunity knocks at the door, you've got to answer. So I’m answering." Nicks has just four catches in four games since reuniting with the Giants, but he should be given more looks this week. He is still not worth using in the fantasy championship.

Hakeem Nicks caught his only target for seven yards in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

His lone catch set the Giants up at the one-yard line, though Andre Williams followed that up by getting stuffed on the goal line. Nicks has drawn three targets in two games since joining the Giants during their bye week. He’s not a fantasy option.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano expects Hakeem Nicks to be move involved this week.

Nicks saw two targets and played 11 snaps against Washington, but he did take Rueben Randle's spot in the offense for a series in the first half. Randle has been terrible this season, and Graziano says the Giants like what they have seen from Nicks in practice. We will believe it when we see it, but it would be difficult for anyone to play worse than Randle.

Hakeem Nicks is active for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Nicks may see a few passes thrown his way as the No. 4 option, but he is very unlikely to become a fantasy factor this season. There is a reason he failed to make the Titans' roster and spent two months as a free agent.

Hakeem Nicks is expected to be active Sunday against the Redskins.

The Giants signed Nicks during the bye week. With Victor Cruz done for the year and Larry Donnell also facing a lengthy absence, Nicks will have a chance to carve a role for himself in the passing game. Of course, there's a reason he went two months without a job after getting cut by the Titans at the end of training camp. It's extremely unlikely that Nicks will emerge as a fantasy option at any point this year.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano said newly-signed WR Hakeem Nicks could be inactive Week 12.

Nicks spent his best seasons with the Giants, but the offense has changed dramatically under new-OC Ben McAdoo. Even once he learns the offense enough to be active, nothing Nicks has shown the last three seasons suggests he will be a fantasy factor. He can be left on the wire.

Giants signed WR Hakeem Nicks.

Nicks was a first-round pick of the Giants in 2009 and had easily the best seasons of his career with the team in 2010 and 2011. Nicks struggled with the Giants late in his time there, however, and did next to nothing with the Colts last year before failing to make the Titans' final roster out of camp this season. Injuries have ravaged Nicks' once-promising career, and there is little reason to think he will suddenly become a fantasy factor in his return to New York. Nicks will take the roster spot of Victor Cruz, who is headed to injured reserve after undergoing calf surgery.

Free agent WR Hakeem Nicks will work out for the Ravens this week.

Other free-agent receivers will join Nicks for the workout, but those names are unclear. Nicks, 28 in January, hasn't shown much of anything since 2013 with the Giants. The Ravens need a body after Steve Smith Sr.'s torn Achilles'.

The Patriots worked out free agent Hakeem Nicks on Monday.

New England is likely just updating its emergency list. Nicks also recently worked out for the Cowboys, and the Saints tried him out in early September.
Mon, Oct 12, 2015 05:07:00 PM

ESPN's Todd Archer reports the Cowboys will bring in WRs Hakeem Nicks, Nick Toon, Austin Pettis and Clyde Gates for workouts on Tuesday.

These guys are on the street for a reason. Hakeem Nicks is the biggest name, but the Titans decided to keep five tight ends on their initial roster rather than retaining him. Toon was soundly beaten out by Brandon Coleman, Willie Snead and others in Saints camp, Pettis has a career 9.6 yards-per-reception average, and Gates did not play a single snap last season. Dallas needs Terrance Williams and Devin Street to step up with Dez Bryant (foot) sidelined.

Free agent Hakeem Nicks is working out for the Saints on Tuesday.

The Saints have extremely little depth at receiver after remaking their offense over the offseason, but Nicks wouldn't be much help. He looked done for the Colts in 2014, and got cut loose over the weekend by a team that had the second worst record in football last season. That being said, Nicks would certainly be in line for snaps. Beyond Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston, the Saints have no proven depth to speak of.

Terry McCormick of 247 Sports said free agent WR Hakeem Nicks could return to the Titans after Week 1 when veteran salaries are no longer guaranteed.

The 27-year-old looked spent this preseason, logging just three catches for 59 yards. Nicks is unlikely to garner much interest on the free agent waters, so he should be around in a few weeks if the Titans are looking to add a fifth wideout. We think Tennessee had it right the first time by letting Nicks go.

Titans released WR Hakeem Nicks.

The Titans' website reported Nicks was "making plays" early in camp, but the reality is that Nicks has almost nothing left after lower-body injuries sapped his once prodigious explosion. It's a shame for a player who is still only 27, but he wasn't a fit for the rebuilding Titans. Despite his relative youth, Nicks is just about at the end of the line. The release of Nicks bodes well for Dorial Green-Beckham's chances of playing a big role sooner rather than later.
