Giants QB Eli Manning, WR Hakeem Nicks feeling good after bye
Heading into their Week 11 bye, the Giants were in a two-game tailspin and surrounded by questions about Eli Manning's throwing arm and Hakeem Nicks' left knee. But there's hope that the Giants can rebound with help from their healthy offensive studs. And healthy is what they now appear to be. Both players shut themselves down over the bye week. On Monday, Nicks said his body felt as good as it has all season. Manning said his arm felt "refreshed." Nicks, Manning and the Giants will look to get back on track Sunday night versus the Packers.
It's great to hear this about Nicks, who has been dogged by knee and foot injuries seemingly forever. If he can stay healthy over the next six games, he can be a top-10 fantasy WR. I was never really worried about Manning. Maybe his arm was "dead," but I fully expect put up big numbers down the stretch.
