The Giants could be getting more help at receiver: Steve Smith was reportedly running routes at practice Wednesday, according to coach Tom Coughlin, and WR Hakeem Nicks told reporters that he wants to return soon, maybe as soon as Week 14 vs. the Vikings. These returns would coincide with the heart of the fantasy playoffs.
And that is obviously good news.
The duo would have a favorable matchup against the Vikings in Week 14 and then face the Eagles and Packers down the stretch.
Coughlin also reiterated that RB Brandon Jacobs will be the starter this week against the Redskins but that Ahmad Bradshaw will remain in the mix. Both have a great matchup and should be seen as flex starters.
