Titans WR Hakeen Nicks seeking comeback season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Fading wide receiver Hakeem Nicks claims he can still be the premier player he was with the Giants now that he is wearing a Titans uniform. But he also understands that he must prove it.

"(I'm) motivated, determined and ready to work," he told The Tennessean. "I am ready to bring it all and lay it on the line, man. I just want to get back in the rhythm of being talked about as one of the best receivers in the league, as I was in the past. ... I need to go out there and prove it. No need to say words."

Nicks enjoyed successive 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011 and tallied 24 touchdowns in his first three years in the NFL. But he faded to the point in which he caught a career-low 38 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns a year ago.

"I feel like where I am at in my career - I just turned 27 - I feel like I still have a lot in my tank," he said. "I wanted to go somewhere and prove I can still be a No. 1 receiver and be the guy I was in the past, statistically and being a guy that likes to make plays and be on the feld consistently.

"With six years of experience, playoff experience and a Super Bowl, I thnk I can definitely bring (leadership) to a team. And I want to compete for Super Bowl teams here."


Titans ink WR Hakeem Nicks to one-year deal


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/29/2015) Veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks signed a one-year deal with the Titans on Thursday, per the Tennessean, giving the team an experienced target for either Zach Mettenberger or potential draft pick Marcus Mariota. 

Nicks had a rough go in 2014 with the Colts, as the 27-year-old suffered through the least productive season of his career, hauling in just 38 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns. 

The one-year deal with the Titans is for $1.4 million, with a $100,000 signing bonus. 


Report: WR Hakeem Nicks ready to sign with Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is set to sign with the Titans, per Fox Sports 1, which is further reporting that other teams that had been interested have been told the news.

The 27-year-old Nicks suffered through the least productive season of his career in 2014, snagging 38 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns with Indianapolis.


Report: Titans check out free agent WR Hakeem Nicks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Fading free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks paid a visit to the Titans on Monday, sources told The Tennessean.

Nicks managed 38 receptions for 405 yards and four touchdowns a year ago while playing with Indianapolis. He started six games in what was easily his worst season statistically, but he insists he remains a viable player.

"I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody ... that's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it," Nicks recently told Fox Sports before continuing to talk about it. "I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it.

"I can't even describe the feeling to you. It's like a burning sensation inside of me. I just want to be the best. I know I have to work hard at it."


Hakeem Nicks set to visit with 49ers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks told ESPN on Monday that he is traveling to California to visit with the 49ers.

Nicks played the 2014 season with the Colts after spending his first five seasons in the NFL with the Giants. Nicks totaled 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games (six starts) last season.


Duron Carter: Playing with Luck 'will set my career in motion'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/3/2015) New Colts wideout Duron Carter got his first exposure to Andrew Luck during Pro Bowl practices. Carter's dad, Hall of Fame receiver and ESPN analyst Cris Carter, took Luck with the No. 1 overall pick.

“That was my first time seeing (Luck) and my first time really hearing about him,” Duron Carter told the team's website.

“Even just from my dad, hearing how Andrew handles people in the huddle, and just around the hotel, he’s just a great guy. Just to be a part of that and be around him I think will really help me and set my career in motion, where no one else could.”

Carter, who starred in the CFL the past two seasons, watched the Colts' loss to the Patriots in the AFC title game and thought he could flourish playing with Luck and a receiving corps led by T.Y. Hilton. He noted New England hounded Hilton with multiple defensive backs.

“I’m sitting there watching the playoff game and I said, ‘I felt like I could be out there and I could help in one of those situations,’ Carter said.

“Just on an every-down basis, me being able to go out there, winning one-on-one matchups when it’s called on me. A lot of teams do go man-to-man and pressure Luck, the only way you can beat that, for me, is to win those one-on-one opportunities with T.Y. over there.”

Carter, 23, who bounced from college to college due to off-field issues, realizes he has a golden opportunity. With Reggie Wayne unsure whether he'll return and Hakeem Nicks an unrestricted free agent, Indy could enter 2015 with Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Carter as its top three wideouts.

“It’s always been my dream to play in the NFL,” Carter said.

“Through decisions I made prior when I was younger, I hindered that opportunity. Getting into the CFL that was my motivation the whole time, every play, every snap, every catch, was I wanted to go to the NFL. Now that I’m here, my next goal is to make the Colts roster.”


Donte Moncrief targeted heavily; vets Nicks, Wayne not so much


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/11/2015) Colts rookie receiver Donte Moncrief drew seven targets in the 24-13 playoff win at Denver, while veterans Hakeem Nicks (two) and Reggie Wayne combined for three targets. Moncrief caught just two of those for 32 yards, but it was another sign of Indy's pecking order behind No. 1 wideout T.Y. Hilton.

Nicks is having a solid postseason despite limited opportunities. After catching all three of his targets for 59 yards in the win over Cincinnati, Nicks corralled both his targets for 24 yards Sunday, including a 15-yard touchdown in traffic. Wayne was targeted once without a grab.

They'll all visit the Patriots in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game.


Donte Moncrief, Hakeem Nicks used more than Reggie Wayne


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/4/2015) Colts receivers Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks each caught three passes on three targets in Sunday's 26-10 playoff win over the Bengals. Moncrief produced 54 receiving yards, including a 36-yard touchdown to make it 20-10 midway through the third quarter.

Nicks went for 59 receiving yards, his second-highest output all season. Wideout Reggie Wayne was limited to a 12-yard reception on two targets. They'll all visit the Broncos in next Sunday's divisional playoffs.


Hakeem Nicks leads the way in T.Y. Hilton's absence


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) With the Colts missing top wideout T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) on Sunday at Dallas, Hakeem Nicks drew a game-high 11 targets and set season highs with nine catches for 72 yards. It was Nicks' first game with more than 50 receiving yards all season.

Rookie wideout Donte Moncrief got the start in place of Hilton but ended up with two catches for 5 yards.

Veteran Reggie Wayne hauled in three of five targets for 23 yards. Wayne dropped one pass and recorded his fifth straight game with 31 or fewer receiving yards.

Hilton is expected to be available Week 17 when the Colts visit the Titans.


Rookie Donte Moncrief starting in place of T.Y. Hilton


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) Colts rookie wideout Donte Moncrief, not veteran Hakeem Nicks, will start in place of T.Y. Hilton in the game at Dallas, reports the Indianapolis Star. Hilton is inactive due to a hamstring injury.

Moncrief has 27 catches for 423 yards and three touchdowns, including a pair of 100-yard games since Week 8. He'll face a Dallas team that ranks 23rd in pass defense, allowing 250 yards per game.


Colts WR T.Y. Hilton inactive against Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) Colts No. 1 receiver T.Y. Hilton, who was questionable with a hamstring injury, is inactive for Sunday's game at Dallas. Hilton missed practice all of last week. He leads the team with 82 grabs for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns.

With Hilton sidelined, wideouts Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks should get increased opportunities against a Dallas defense that ranks 21st against the pass, allowing 250 yards per game.

Indy is a 3- or 3.5-point underdog at Vegas sportsbooks.


Report: Reggie Wayne might play less in last two games


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/18/2014) With the Colts having locked up their division but unlikely to earn a first-round bye, receiver Reggie Wayne "might see less action" during the final two regular-season games, reports the Indianapolis Star. Wayne is playing with a torn triceps.

He played 52 snaps Week 15 after playing 63 the week before. If Wayne's snaps keep dropping, rookie Donte Moncrief and veteran Hakeem Nicks should see more playing time.

Moncrief played 37 snaps and Nicks 21 in last Sunday's win over Houston. The Colts visit Dallas on Sunday as 3-point underdogs.


Colts' Hakeem Nicks, Dwayne Allen reach paydirt vs. Texans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and tight end Dwayne Allen scored the team's two touchdowns in their 17-10 win over the Texans in Week 15.

After the Texans returned an interception for a touchdown in the first quarter, Nicks evened the score early in the second quarter, catching a pass of about 15 yards in between the hashmarks and working his way into the end zone for a 26-yard score. He caught both of his targets on the afternoon and finished with a total of 44 yards and the one score.

Allen put his team up 14-7 later in the second quarter on a three-yard score, boxing out his man in the end zone one play after Nicks set the team on the doorstep with an 18-yard reception. The tight end finished the day with two receptions on four targets for 16 yards and the one touchdown.

The Colts move forward to square off with the Cowboys in Week 16.


Colts get offensive contributions in Week 12 victory


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/23/2014) Several Colts contributed offensively in the 23-3 win over the Jaguars. Among them, rookie wideout Donte Moncrief caught all four of his targets for 38 yards and had a 4-yard rush. Tight end Coby Fleener hauled in two of his four targets for 28 yards.

Receiver Hakeem Nicks had an 16-yard grab, and tight end Jack Doyle made two receptions for 8 yards. They'll all face the Redskins in Week 13.


Reggie Wayne leads Colts WRs with 91 yards in Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne paced his position group Sunday with five catches on nine targets for 91 yards in his team's 42-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 11.

Tight end Coby Fleener led the passing attack with 144 yards Sunday but Wayne was the clear second option, with the rest of the Colts offensive players combining for just 68 yards. Wayne racked up his most yards since delivering a 119-yard performance in Week 4. However, the two touchdowns thrown by Andrew Luck went to offensive tackle Anthony Costanzo and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. Costanzo's touchdown was his only catch of the day, while Nicks managed two catches for 15 yards.

T.Y. Hilton, the team's leading receiver, only managed to catch three of his seven targets for just 24 yards. His yardage was a new season low, and it was his second consecutive game catching just three passes. He now has 59 receptions for 961 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.

The Colts have lost two of their last three games heading into a Week 12 matchup with the Jaguars.


Hakeem Nicks not a huge factor against former team


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/4/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks was clearly pumped to face his former team on Monday Night Football. But Nicks wasn't a huge part of the team's 40-24 win over the Giants.

He caught three of four targets for 44 yards. It was actually Nicks' best performance since Week 3, as he's fallen behind other weapons in the Colts' arsenal.

Nicks is on a bye Week 10.


Several Colts make minor mark on Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Colts wideout Hakeen Nicks gained a starting spot for Sunday in Pittsburgh due to the absence of Reggie Wayne and did little with it.

Nicks managed just one catch for 27 yards as one of several small offensive contributors. Also in that group was wideout Griff Whalen, who caught one pass for 23 yards, and running back Dan Herron, who chipped in with a reception for five yards while adding two yards on one carry. Tight end Coby Fleener also caught one for four yards.


Colts place only one injured on Week 8 inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Veteran wideout Reggie Wayne (elbow) is the lone injured inactive for the Colts on Sunday. Hakeem Nicks is set to start in his place.

The healthy scratches are cornerback Jalil Brown, offensive linemen Lance Louis and Khaled Holmes and defensive linemen Montori Hughes and Kelcy Quarles.


Colts WR Hakeem Nicks expected to see more targets Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) With Reggie Wayne ruled out with an elbow injury, Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to have an increased role on offense Sunday against Pittsburgh, according to ESPN. Nicks has gotten off to a slow start, with 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver. He was targeted only once and was held without a grab in Week 7 against Cincinnati.

"I look forward to every opportunity," Nicks said. "Each week I prepare accordingly, prepare like I’m going to play, just like I’m going to play this week. Just have to go out there and play within the offense and everything will be good."

Colts have confidence in Hakeem Nicks if Reggie Wayne is sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) If Reggie Wayne is unable to play Week 8 against the Steelers due to an elbow injury, Colts coach Chuck Pagano expressed complete confidence in veteran receiver Hakeem Nicks helping pick up the slack in Wayne's absence.

"He comes here every day with his hat on, lunch pail, ready to work," Pagano said about Nicks, per ESPN. "He’s a competitive guy. We have a ton of competitive guys in that locker room. They all want to contribute and they all want to make plays. He understands that. He’ll be ready no matter when his number is called. He knows his stuff; he practices hard, prepares hard."

Nicks has posted modest numbers in his first season with the Colts, totaling 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns in seven games.


Colts WR Hakeem Nicks does little in win over Texans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks wasn't much of a factor in a Week 6 victory over the Texans on Thursday.

Nicks caught a six-yard pass from Andrew Luck on the final drive of the first half and a 12-yard pass on the opening drive after halftime. He was targeted seven times but only came down with two grabs for 18 yards in a 33-28 victory. He has 141 receiving yards through six games but has been held out of the end zone since Week 3.

Nicks will look to get back on track Week 7 at home against Cincinnati.


Colts' Hakeem Nicks not doing much in Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks failed to make much of an impact in a Week 5 victory at home over the Ravens.

Nicks caught a short pass for a gain of 9 yards on the opening drive and caught a 16-yard pass in the fourth quarter for his longest gains of the day. He was targeted six times and finished with three catches for 29 yards, averaging 9.7 yards per grab in a 20-13 victory. He has 15 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns this season.

The Colts will face the Texans in Week 6.


Hakeem Nicks just misses TD catch Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks had a pretty disappointing game Sunday against the Titans despite Indianapolis putting up 41 points in a win. Nicks, who was targeted six times, finished with just two catches for 12 yards.

Nicks came close to recording his third touchdown of the season in the second quarter, but he could not finish off a 12-yard touchdown catch after getting his hands on the football.

The Colts are back in action Week 5 vs. Baltimore.


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Hakeem Nicks could have some value for Week 4


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks' Fantasy value for Week 4 against the Titans is likely to depend almost entirely on T.Y. Hilton's availability for Sunday's game.

Nicks caught four passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, but he did the majority of his damage following Hilton's exit from the game. Nicks had just one reception for 12 yards in the first half, hauled in three passes and his touchdown following halftime, when Hilton was no longer around.

Nicks ended up playing 49 percent of the team's snaps, compared to 46 percent for Hilton. The Colts do not use three receivers often, as evidenced by the fact that three different tight ends saw the field for at least 36 percent of the plays in the last two games. If Hilton's ankle injury heals enough for him to play, Nicks will have trouble finding the field, as he did in Week 2, when he plays just 40 percent of the team's snaps.

Nicks might be someone worth picking up on waivers Tuesday night, but he only really has upside if Hilton sits out.
