The New York Giants and fantasy owners alike will be without Plaxico Burress, who accidentally shot himself on Friday night. NFL Network’s Adam Schefter has confirmed the story, though the full details are still unknown.
Burress had already been declared out for Sunday’s game in Washington due to an injured hamstring, but now it appears he could miss additional time because of this strange incident. The veteran wideout has been a huge disappointment this season, catching just 35 passes for 454 yards with four touchdowns.
With Burress on the sidelines, it’s time to add Domenik Hixon in all fantasy leagues.
Hixon proved that he can be a playmaker in Week 5, catching four passes for 102 yards and one touchdown in a win over Seattle. Hixon could be as much as a No. 3 fantasy wideout this week against the Redskins.
