Giants unlikely to trade WR Hakeem Nicks


Giants unlikely to trade WR Hakeem Nicks

The New York Giants are not likely to trade wide receiver Hakeem Nicks before Tuesday's trade deadling (4 pm eastern). The fifth-year wideout is still on track to have a decent season (68 receptions for 1,042 yards) but his zero touchdowns through eight games have hurt the perception of his talent. He is still seeing a strong majority of snaps and never played fewer than 84-percent of them.

Fantasy Analysis:

Nicks used to go toe-to-toe, statistically, with Victor Cruz @TeamVic when both were healthy. They'd essentially take turns beating up defenses and scoring bunches of fantasy points. This year, Rueben Randle @RuebenRandle has played more like the Giants' No. 2 receiver and that's while playing around 50-percent of snaps this season. Nicks is a low-end WR3 and that's just the way it is. A change in scenery could help, but the Giants would only need to add another receiver in next year's draft if they were to part ways with him. Unless a trade partner is willing to overspent to get him, the Giants are right in holding onto him.
