Giants WR Hakeem Nicks doesn't travel to Philly; RB Ahmad Bradshaw probable

Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been ruled out of Sunday night's game versus the Eagles. He was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report, but swelling in his right knee and soreness in his left foot have kept him back in New York as the team travels to Philadelphia.
Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw, like Nicks, didn't play in Week 3. Unlike Nicks, Bradshaw is set to run this weekend. After taking time off to let his neck injury heal, Bradshaw is listed as probable after going through a week of full practice.

Fantasy Analysis:

I wrote about Nicks and the impact on Ramses Barden @RamsesSHINES yesterday. Even with Domenik Hixon expected to play, I think Barden can be a WR3 if you're a little desperate. The Eagles' pass defense is stellar, but I think Barden will see plenty of snaps and targets to matter. Not exactly a confident endorsement, but like I said, if you're desperate ....
I would advise anyone to stay away from the Giants' rushing attack in Week 4. I think Andre Brown @drebrown35 will be the team's lead runner in time, but Bradshaw is the established vet, and I have no idea what the Giants will do with both of them available. Give this situation a week or two to shake out.
