|Coughlin: Hakeem Nicks needed change |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/1/14) Giants coach Tom Coughlin said at the NFL owners meeting that Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks, who signed with Indianapolis as a free agent after five seasons in New York, probably needed a change for his career.
"Two years ago he was probably one of the best receivers in the NFL," Coughlin said. "He's had some nicks, he's had some things he had to deal with, the production was not where it should have been last year. We wish Hakeem success, nothing but the best for him. Perhaps this is what he needed, the change he needed. If he re-establishes himself in Indianapolis they'll have one hell of a football team."
Nicks signed a one-year deal with the Colts. He had just 56 catches for 896 yards and no touchdowns in 2013.
|Physical nature brought Hakeem Nicks to Indianapolis |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/25/14) It sure wasn't Hakeem Nicks' touchdown efficiency that made him a Colt -- he had zero scores last year. But Colts coach Chuck Pagano told CBSSports.com that Nicks' physical style is what made him an asset to the team.
"What is there not to like about the guy?" Pagano said from the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando. "He's a big guy, very, very athletic, experienced guy, played at a high level, won championships. ... Everybody's going to get up in your face now and play bump and run and make it really hard for you to get off the line of scrimmage. He gives you a big, physical presence. When Reggie went down, Da'Rick Rogers was a big guy but he hadn't played and was thrust to the forefront. With Hakeem you get another big, physical receiver that will do a great job versus press coverage and the teams that we're going to have to face, all of them are built to stop the big wideouts. We're going to face big corners, if you will. He brings a lot to the table in that respect."
|Hakeem Nicks excited about 'three-headed monster' |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(3/16/14) New Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks relishes the prospect of playing with quarterback Andrew Luck and teaming with receivers Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton. The trio has combined for 11 1,000-yard receiving seasons and 122 touchdowns.
"That's exciting," Nicks told the Herald Bulletin. "It looks like a three-headed monster to me. Last time I was in that situation, I won a Super Bowl. So I'm excited about that."
Nicks called the Colts the best fit for him. He'll try to prove himself on a one-year deal.
"The football coaches, I've heard a lot of great things about them," he said. "Andrew Luck is one of the best young quarterbacks in the game today, and I would love to play with him."

(3/14/14) Former Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Nicks 26, caught 56 passes for 896 yards and no touchdowns in 15 games last year for the Giants. He had 17 touchdowns in his first two seasons in the league, 10 in his last three.

(3/13/14) Free agent receiver Hakeem Nicks told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he's flying to Indianapolis to meet with the Colts on Friday. The Panthers and Chargers are also reportedly in the mix for Nicks' services.
Nicks dealt with a number of foot injuries including a broken foot in the spring of 2012. He caught 56 passes for 896 yards and no touchdowns in 15 games last year for the Giants. He had 17 touchdowns in his first two seasons in the league, 10 in his last three.
|Hakeem Nicks is expected to rebound this season after an injury-plagued year in 2012. While Nicks played in 13 games last season, he was limited by knee and foot injuries and finished with just 53 catches for 692 yards and three touchdowns, with his yards and touchdowns career lows. He is capable of much more when healthy, and he could easily return as a Top 20 Fantasy receiver. Keep in mind before last year he had consecutive seasons of at least 76 catches, 1,050 yards and seven touchdowns with 18 total touchdowns over that span. But if he continues to be limited by knee and foot problems then his value will continue to drop. We'd still take a chance on Nicks with a pick in Round 4 or 5, and hopefully he can bounce back to play like an elite Fantasy receiver once again. (Updated 5/28/13) |
