Giants | David Wilson misses block

An area of emphasis for New York Giants RB David Wilson is pass protection. On one play in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 10, he went low to block an oncoming defender, only to see the linebacker hurdle his block. "He had one very, very good cut block when he stepped up and took on the blitzing linebacker," head coach Tom Coughlin said Sunday, Aug. 11. "And he tried to carry on that same route of execution out, and the 'backer stepped over him one time. He has got to learn that you really don't cut people at the feet of the quarterback. That is not going to accomplish anything."

Fantasy Tip: Wilson and Andre Brown did nothing to earn separation in their battle for the No. 1 job. Wilson needs to get better on pass protection, and Brown put the ball on the ground. The two combined for 39 yards on nine rushes. Many experts think Wilson will emerge as the winner, and therefore have the most fantasy appeal, but the job is still too close to call.
