Giants WR Ramses Barden concussed & WR Hakeem Nicks still hurt

Late during the New York Giants loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, wide receiver Ramses Barden @RamsesSHINES suffered a concussion. After dealing with headaches on Tuesday, a visit to the team doctors returned the diagnosis. Since WR Hakeem Nicks has been unable to play, Barden has been thrust into more playing time and showed some real talent in Week 3 when he caught nine passes for 138 yards. Look for WR Domenik Hixon @domenik_hixon to see even more playing time should Nicks and Barden be unable to play

Fantasy Analysis:

New York faces Cleveland in Week 5 in what could be a high-scoring affair since the Browns will still be without Joe Haden. I once again must stress that Victor Cruz @TeamVic owners are sitting on a goldmine. Eli Manning is just one of those quarterbacks who's going to find a way to get his best players the ball. Hixon is a must-add right now and depending on your situation, it's probably best to hold him on your bench or consider him for your flex spot. Once Nicks is back on the field though, he should find himself right back into your starting lineup.
