New York Giants wideout Hakeem Nicks (foot, knee) says he's "pushing 90, 95 percent" of his top form heading into Sunday's game against the Steelers, according to USA Today.Fantasy Spin:Nicks estimated he was 60-65 percent when he played against the 49ers last month after missing three straight games. He's been relying mainly on his ball skills to make plays with his ability to gain separation hampered by the injuries. If you've been sitting Nicks, Sunday would be the game to get him back in the lineup.

Players had their first practice since Sunday night's physically draining 29-24 victory over the Cowboys in Dallas.

Giants receiver Victor Cruz (calf) fully participated in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Cruz' calf injury was never expected to keep him out of Sunday's game. Start him and expect a bounce-back week for the Giants big-play receiver.
Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks studies his opponents tactics, too, which led him to the conclusion that Pittsburgh Steelers defensive backs hold a lot, Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
They grab, Nicks said. They grab a lot. Theyre physical.
Just to be clear, Nicks doesnt mean contact within the leagues rules. Im sure youll see on Sunday...

New Jersey is still recovering from from the devastation left behind by Sandy but one sure sign that things are slowly getting back to normal is the sound of whining returning to the New York Giants locker room.
Giants players took some time off from complaining — maybe it was drowned out by the winds — after the teams' offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was swiftly chastised...

What more can you say about Lawrence Tynes? He gets a ton of opportunities each week. He has only missed two filed goals this year, both over 40 yards. Even when he doesn’t get many field goal attempts, he still will get around five points because of how many times the New York Giants score. If you have Tynes, I would expect him to get ten to fifteen points each game, and I...
