Pros: One head was lopped off the Giants' three-headed rushing attack this offseason; only Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw remain (for now at least). Giants running backs have ranked in the top 10 in carries in each of the last three seasons (471 last year; fourth in the league). Bradshaw would be the next to step in should Jacobs suffer an injury; Jacobs has never started for a full season. Bradshaw hasn't been that bad when given a chance, either (6.1 yards per carry last year; 545 yards on 90 carries).

Cons: Bradshaw's size doesn't suggest he'd be able to handle a full workload. Sure, Bradshaw's 6.1 yards per carry is gaudy, but he has never shown he can establish that in a greater sample size.

Fantasy tip: Bradshaw average draft placement is the 11th round. He offers decent upside and is a No. 4 back. Bradshaw's ADP is slightly higher in point-per-reception leagues. If you have Jacobs, Bradshaw is worth taking earlier, though, in order to secure his services as a handcuff.
