Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (lower leg questionable) took limited reps Friday and is questionable for Sunday. Nicks had half of his stitches removed yesterday. HC Tom Coughlin said he is "on track" to play. A decision will likely come Saturday. Nicks said on Wednesday, "If I'm practicing, I'm playing." Hakeem's return to the lineup would be a huge boost to a recently struggling Giants passing game, but it's hard to tell how effective he'll be. There will be risk in starting Nicks if he's active, but a lot of upside as well.

Giants WR Steve Smith (pectoral questionable) took limited reps Friday and is questionable for Sunday. HC Tom Coughlin said Smith is on track to play this week barring a setback. Like Nicks, it's hard to know how effective Smith will be until we see him playing. He has indicated that the pectoral injury will limit his ability to gain separation from defensive backs. For what it's worth, we like Nicks as a better fantasy option if both are active, but Smith looks like the better lock to play.
