Fantasy football: Backfields in motion
Long shot: Andre Brown
The G-Men rushing game finished dead last in the league last year, thanks in part to a roughshod offensive line. Don't forget the erratic running and health of Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs, though. The Big Blue let Jacobs walk and drafted first-rounder Wilson in his place.
Bradshaw is the leader here, but count on something closer to 200 totes and not the 276 he received in 2010; they want to make sure he's conserved, considering he plays in the system the best. He's going hard at practice now but he'll ease off a bit during the season, considering the fragility of his feet.
Those concerns kept the Giants focused on employing a committee behind him to cover the gaps in play. Wilson, who's listed as the RB2, boasts a mix of agility and size that makes him a fresher, more versatile version of Jacobs. His isn't far off from Bradshaw's skill set, either. This fresh horse needs to be broken, though; Wilson, per Bradshaw, is going a bit hard in drills and putting his body under more stress than he should at this point in camp.
Ware, Brown and Scott should compete for reps but aren't draftable yet, considering how high New York is on their new Giant.
