Also, I'm not sure that the Giants will, or need to, throw the ball that much against Indy. Defensing the pass has always been their strength and they're poor against the run. Thus, I'm not expecting lot out of Nicks even if he does play. So I'm going with M. Williams (TB). It's a conservative play, but has some upside, and I need to make sure I get some points out of m WR3 position.
Bob Sanders is out for pretty much the first 1/2 to 3/4 of the season, though. He's a bit like Polomalu in terms of defining how their secondary plays, IINM.
Hakeem Nicks admits his ankle was not 100 percent in Week 2, but says he is now completely healthy. "It wasn’t hurting, but I wasn’t confident," said Nicks, who still caught his fourth touchdown pass of the season. "It was more of a mental thing (when I tried to cut). It’s a lot better. Now, I’m ready." Regaining his full-time role, Nicks is worth using as a WR2 against Tennessee in Week 3.
Even though he is expected to start, I don't feel good about a questionable player going into a Monday night game. Latest news follows:
Hakeem Nicks (questionable, hamstring) practiced only on a limited basis Saturday.
Nicks said Friday that there was "no question" he would be playing and that he was just fatigued more than anything else. He's officially listed as questionable, but we fully expect him to suit up for Monday Night Football.
Nicks seems a go for MNF: Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) was limited in practice on Saturday in preparation for the Monday night game against Dallas in Week 7. This is a step in the right direction as Nicks was unable to practice on Friday with a fatigued hamstring. Nicks has said from the beginning that he plans on playing against the Cowboys.

Injury Report Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 at Dallas (Updated - 10/23/10)
Fantasy Analysis Nicks totaled a season-low 8 yards in Week 6 against Detroit and will look to put up big numbers once again on the big Monday night stage. In his only game against the Cowboys in 2009, Nicks totaled two catches for 37 yards and one touchdown. Nicks remains tied for the NFC lead with six receiving touchdowns heading into Week 7. He definitely has not been consistent this season but he has th ability to put up 100 yards in any given week. Eli Manning is going to find ways to get him the football. The Cowboys are allowing WRs to average 19 Fantasy points per week, which is middle of the road. They have not allowed a 100-yard receiver in 2010, but five WRs have scored touchdowns. Nicks should be active in most Fantasy formats. (Updated 10/23/2010).
