Pros: The Marshall alum has a 5.2 career yards-per-carry average and reached 4.8 last season while scoring seven touchdowns and catching 21 passes, all with Brandon Jacobs being the top dog. Positive reports have followed surgery on Bradshaw's ankle and feet. His blocking duties will keep his passing-down reps intact. Jacobs has missed nine games over the last three seasons and saw his rushing average tank last season; Bradshaw could be the featured back if needed.

Cons: Bradshaw played through fractured feet for most of the season. Will his reconstructed hooves hold up? They'll probably go light on him in training camp, and he might be slightly delayed heading into the season. Though he's in a role that should provide ample receptions, he only logged four games with three or more catches last year. The Giants will probably go with the hot hand often, meaning Bradshaw might be left out altogether in some weeks.

Fantasy tip: A high-upside No. 4 back, Bradshaw has the explosiveness to become a fantasy regular. He can make a difference in committee work. PPR owners have more incentive to reach a little for him, even with his recent surgeries.
