Giants | Best pass blocker to get bulk of RB work

New York Giants RBs Andre Brown and David Wilson are battling for the No. 1 tailback job in training camp and the preseason. It is expected that whichever of these guys shows the most as a pass-blocker will get a bulk of the carries. "You really can't play unless you can protect the quarterback," head coach Tom Coughlin said Tuesday, Aug. 6. "Fortunately, those two young men as well as our other running backs have had the opportunity to look at (former RB Ahmad Bradshaw's) film and get a better understanding of the complexities of our protection packages."

Fantasy Tip: A split in carries similar to years past is expected, with Wilson being the more favorable fantasy option at this juncture. He is expected to be the more explosive runner, and that big-play ability has fantasy owners nabbing him with an average draft position (ADP) of late third round or early fourth round in leagues of 12 or more teams.
