Giants | Former OC believes David Wilson can help

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 10:32:15 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) should be able to help the offense if he is able to stay healthy this upcoming season, according to former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Gilbride said Wilson needs to work on his pass blocking and route running.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson said he has been cleared, but it remains to be seen what he will be able to do on the field after neck surgery. He should have a role in the offense if he stays healthy, but he probably will not receive most of the playing time at the position. Owners can consider Wilson as a risky No. 4 running back leading up to their drafts.

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 08:00:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.

Giants | Andre Williams could be part of rotation to start the year

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:46:26 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could unseat RB Peyton Hillis as the power back by the start of the year and become a part of a three-man rotation with RB Rashad Jennings and RB David Wilson, according to Giants.com writers John Schmeelk and Dan Salomone.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is the favorite to be the featured back, but with Wilson's injury history, there is a chance Williams could carve out a worthwhile role in the offense. He probably isn't worth drafting at this point, but he is worth keeping an eye on to see how his role develops.

Giants | David Wilson shows significant progress

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 12:29:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has shown significant progress and healing after undergoing neck fusion surgery. "There has been significant progress and healing since David had the fusion. But the reality is it has only been four and one-half months since the surgery. We anticipate that when David is re-evaluated at the start of training camp he will be cleared at that point."

Giants | David Wilson could be ready for training camp

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 12:29:07 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) could be cleared when he is re-evaluated at the start of training camp, according to team physician Dr. Russell Warren. Warren added Wilson has progressed and healed significantly since his neck fusion.

Fantasy Tip: There is still too much risk in drafting Wilson at this point, especially with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams in the mix. Consider Jennings a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Giants | David Wilson update

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 09:14:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) hasn't shown significant improvement from his surgically repaired neck Wednesday, June 4, so he won't be allowed to do contact drills in organized team activities and minicamp, according to a source. However, he expects to be cleared for training camp next month. He'd likely have to start camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list if he's not cleared, and he'd be a candidate for Injured Reserve if the problem continues. Wilson has been practicing almost exclusively in return drills during OTAs.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are being extremely cautious with Wilson, and there is no guarantee he'll be good to go for Week 1. He's an extremely risky draft choice right now, so hopefully we'll have a better grasp on his health when fantasy football drafts are in full swing. As of now, Rashad Jennings' value is very intriguing as an RB2. Andre Williams was also drafted this year and could compete for touches with Wilson.
