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. 


Hakeem Nicks, Coby Fleener play a big role Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts pass catcher Hakeem Nicks and Coby Fleener each had big games Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Nicks hauled in four balls for 50 yards and a score. Fleener had 49 yards and a touchdown as well. Fleener was Luck's most popular receiver during the game, picking up seven targets. Nicks had a big 29 yard gain, but scored on a 1 yard strike from Luck.

Both players will look for more Week 4 against the Titans. 


Colts should have most of their injured players Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Colts will have most of their injured players available Week 3 against the Jaguars.

T.Y. Hilton and Hakeem Nicks are both active for the contest. Nicks was the bigger question, as he entered the week deemed questionable. The team will also have Darius Butler, Ricky Jean Francois and Greg Toler


Two deemed out by Colts for Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Colts have ruled out linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) and defensive tackle Arthur Jones (ankle) for their Sunday game at Jacksonville.

Listed as questionable are defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (ankle), wideout Hakeem Nicks (illness) and guard Joe Reitz (ankle). Cornerback Darius Butler (neck), wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (groin), offensive lineman Khaled Holmes (ankle) and cornerback Greg Toler (ribs).


Hakeem Nicks a no-go Friday with illness


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks is sidelined from his second straight practice Friday with an illness. It remains to be seen if he plays in Week 3 against Jacksonville.

Nicks has been a disappointment since arriving in Indianapolis. He has just six catches for 32 yards in two games and managed just one reception for minus-4 yards Monday night against Philadelphia.


Hakeem Nicks misses practice due to illness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks did not practice Thursday due to an illness. The Colts are preparing to play the Jaguars Week 3.

Hakeem Nicks goes for negative yardage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks had a chance for a first-quarter touchdown Monday night, but he could not come down with a fade from Andrew Luck. Nicks ended up catching one of his three targets for minus-4 yards. On the reception, Nicks caught the ball behind the line and was swarmed by Eagles defenders.

Nicks will try to bounce back Week 3 at Jacksonville.


Hakeem Nicks ends scoring drought


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks found the end zone Week 1 for the first time since Dec. 9, 2012. Nicks' juggling 9-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter salvaged an otherwise disappointing night, as he finished with five grabs for 36 yards in the loss at Denver.

Nicks did secure all his targets. He had a chance for an earlier touchdown but was stopped by two Broncos inside the 1. Nicks, who did not score a touchdown last season with the Giants, plays the Eagles in Week 2 on Monday Night Football.

Hakeem Nicks not a starting option yet


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks started slowly this preseason but came on to catch eight of nine targets for 86 yards. The team plans to use their free-agent acquisition in all three-receiver sets and some two-receiver sets as well, according to Stampede Blue.

That said, Nicks isn't worth starting until his role crystallizes. Consider him a WR4 for Week 1 at Denver.

Hakeem Nicks looks like old self vs. former team


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks looked like his old self against his former club Saturday in exhibition play.

Nicks caught a short pass for no gain and was unable to convert a third down on the opening drive. On the second drive, he hauled in a 17-yard pass from Andrew Luck. A penalty also wiped out a 36-yard catch and run. He was limited to only four series with the first-team offense against the Giants. He caught all five passes thrown his way for 53 yards.

Hakeem Nicks targeted twice on opening drive


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) With Reggie Wayne sitting out, Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks started against the Jets and was targeted twice on the opening drive. The first pass was broken up, then Nicks hauled in a 15-yarder along the sideline.

Nicks is in his first season with the Colts after failing to score a touchdown with the Giants last year.


Hakeem Nicks responds to conditioning criticism


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks talked to ESPN reporter Josina Anderson Thursday about his conditioning level after offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said Nicks is "still working to get himself into game shape."

"I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...I came in weighing 209 when I was supposed to come in weighing 212," Nicks said. "After Pep came to me to clarify, he said that he (meant) everybody's getting into game shape right now -- it's the beginning of camp. He came apologizing to let me know he wasn't just singling me out.

"I think that I have been performing well. They tell me the same thing. We're grown men. They would tell me if I was lacking. Like coach Pep told me, he said, 'If I felt like you were lacking in any area I would come straight to you.' You know, Pep and I have history from Charlotte."

Like many players, Nicks has lofty goals for the 2014 season.

"My mentality is I'm shooting to be the best in the league at my position this year," he said. "I'm not trying to make headlines. I do stand on that, but I know it's going to take teamwork. Once you put the team first, everything else falls into place."


Hakeem Nicks 'working to get himself in game shape'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) From the way Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is talking, receiver Hakeem Nicks doesn't sound ready to light up opposing defenses. "I don’t know if I can say that I’ve seen enough," Hamilton told the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. "I think he is still working to get himself in game shape."

Nicks joined Indy after spending his first five seasons with the Giants. Over the last two seasons he was bothered by foot injuries and caught a total of three touchdowns.


Hakeem Nicks leaves practice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks suffered an undisclosed injury during practice Wednesday and was not able to finish, reports the Indianapolis Star.

Nicks is considered to be OK, and the Herald Bulletin said Nicks might have had his foot stepped on by cornerback Greg Toler in practice. Nicks had a history of foot problems during his tenure with the Giants.


Colts draft receiver Donte Moncrief


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 90 pick in the NFL Draft, the Colts drafted receiver Donte Moncrief from Ole Miss.

Moncrief has the chance to be the No. 4 receiver for the Colts behind T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks. With Wayne coming off a torn ACL and Nicks on a one-year deal, Moncrief could be a significant contributor now and in the future.

He started all 13 games in 2013 for the Rebels and posted a stat line of 59 catches, 938 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 15.9-yards per catch.


Andrew Luck working on timing with Hakeem Nicks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was extremely pleased about the signing of Hakeem Nicks. Now he's throwing to Nicks, trying to develop chemistry and timing.

"It’s very good to get the rhythm, get the consistency down, get the timing down because I’ve learned, playing two years, that timing is everything in this league," Luck said. "It is so important and when you feel it, you feel the rapport. When T.Y. (Hilton) came on at the end of the year, like it is with Reggie (Wayne), it makes things just feel a little more simple."

Luck said Nicks is a Super Bowl champ who "knows how to win."

"I think any time you can add that experience with a phenomenal football player, it really helps us out," Luck said. "I’ve been talking and picking his brain about what it takes to make deep runs and how he likes things. I think it’ll be a great addition here."


Coughlin: Hakeem Nicks needed change


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/1/2014) 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
(3/25/2014) 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
(3/16/2014) 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."


Colts land Hakeem Nicks on one-year deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) 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.

Hakeem Nicks visiting the Colts


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) 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.
