Giants | David Wilson finished with football

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 17:23:20 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has come to terms with the fact that his playing days are over, according to a team news release. "I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me or pity me," Wilson said in the release. "I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too."

Fantasy Tip: It appears Wilson is going to follow medical advice and retire. It's an unlucky blow for Wilson, but the end result will likely be more touches for Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. Consider Jennings a RB2 candidate while Williams is worth grabbing late in drafts as a bench option.

Giants | David Wilson likely done in NY

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 11:51:21 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson's (neck) days with the team are likely numbered following doctoral advice to give up football. Wilson suffered what may very well have been a career-ending neck injury last week.

Fantasy Tip: The news keeps getting worse for Wilson. The Giants' running backs to own this year are Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. Jennings has RB2 potential with added value in PPR scoring formats while Williams could be a nice sleeper in standard leagues as he primes himself for a vulture role behind Jennings.

Giants | David Wilson not allowed to return

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 10:02:01 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has been shut down by team doctors because of the neck injury he suffered last week, according to a source. It is believed the injury could be career ending.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings likely will be the team's starting running back with Wilson not being able to compete for the job. Jennings should be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues. Andre Williams could become more valuable with this news and should be seen as a No. 4 running back.
