Experts Draft Recap
AUG 28, 4:43p ET | Ryan Fowler
Rotowire: Dec 21 / 5:47p ET
News: Nicks had nine catches for 72 yards in Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Cowboys. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.
Impact: With T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) inactive, the Colts turned their focus to Hakeem Nicks, resulting in season highs in both receptions and yards. With a first-round bye now out of reach for Indianapolis, the Colts may consider resting Hilton again to get him fresh for the playoffs, which could lead to another game of increased opportunities for Nicks.
Rotowire: Dec 15 / 11:15a ET
News: Nicks had two receptions for 44 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.
Impact: It was a surprising performance since Nicks had just one catch combined in the previous three games and seemed to be stuck on the bench behind Donte Moncrief. Nicks still played fewer snaps on offense than Moncrief (36 to 21), who had four targets, so it may not indicate a big reversal of playing time.
Rotowire: Dec 8 / 2:46p ET
News: Nicks didn't have a reception and was targeted just two times in Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Impact: Nicks played just 18 snaps on offense as he's fallen far behind Donte Moncrief (who played 50 snaps on offense) for the third receiver role.
