New York Giants RB Andre Brown could be poised to start in 2013. "This is my year," Brown said. "I have to go out there and I have to produce. I feel like this is a very important season and I have to go out there and show the world what Andre Brown is made of."
Fantasy Tip: Brown will compete with David Wilson for the starting job in 2013, but the end result may be closer to a split in carries. Keep an eye on how the two running backs are used in training camp and preseason games to get a better idea of what the Giants plans are.

New York Giants special teams coordinator Tom Quinn said he believes RB David Wilson can still be a kick returner this season even though he is expected to be the starting running back. "With his expanded role (in the offense), we'll see where it leads," Quinn said. "He said he'd like to do both, but it all depends on the game and his carries and what his role is in the offense."
Fantasy Tip: The team likely will look to decrease Wilson's return duties even if he wants to handle the role because he is expected to be the team's main runner. Wilson likely will be an every-week starter this season as long as he is healthy.

New York Giants RB David Wilson said he does not expect the starting running back job to be handed to him and is ready to compete with the other running backs on the roster for the job. RBs Andre Brown, Ryan Torain and Da'Rel Scott are also expected to compete to playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson is the clear favorite to win the starting job and would be a starter each week if he does win the job. Brown is considered the favorite for the No. 2 RB job and could be a complementary back to Wilson. The roles for Torain and Scott are not known at this point, so their value is not easy to determine.

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is expected serve as the primary backup to RB David Wilson now that RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle, knee) has been jettisoned.
Fantasy Tip: Brown is recovering from a broken leg suffered in November. If he bounces back to 100 percent before the season, he might be worth a look as a flex fantasy option most weeks. However, it would take a long-term injury to Wilson to create more of an opportunity.
Wed, 06 Feb 2013 18:30:11 -0800
The emergence of New York Giants RB David Wilson this past season made it easier to part with RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle, knee). Wilson rushed for 358 yards and four scores, and also set a franchise record with 1,533 kickoff return yards.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be the team's top running back, and will be a Top 20 fantasy option at his position. He might be higher if RB Andre Brown (leg) struggles to get back to full strength after suffering a broken leg in November.

Sat, 01 Dec 2012 07:19:50 -0800
New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said there is no reason why RB David Wilson should not be ready to see more action in Week 13. "You've got to be ready and have an understanding of what your assignments are and what adjustments you have to make to handle the specific challenges or problems that the Redskins present," Gilbride said. "He's certainly been around long enough to learn from the guys ahead of him that have done a great job with handling that stuff."
Sat, 01 Dec 2012 05:36:44 -0800
New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw said he's primarily worked with RB David Wilson on "the little things" prior to Week 13, such as pass-blocking assignments and remaining patient while the offensive linemen make their blocks on running plays. "It's very tough. Coming from college, they just want to get the ball in your hands and you run with it. Here, everybody is a pro, there's great players on defense," Bradshaw said. "I just try to feed him a lot of the little things, that's what he has problems with, the little things … Those are the things I can help him with. He has great vision, great speed, and he's a sponge right now to absorb all the information."
Fri, 30 Nov 2012 17:57:57 -0800
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin pulled RB David Wilson aside for a brief conversation to make sure he understands the enormous opportunity he has in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins. Wilson will be the primary backup to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) nicked up and RB Andre Brown (fibula) out for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson's workload depends on the health of Bradshaw, and how much work Coughlin elects to give newcomers Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan Torain. However, both of those players seem more destined for roles on special teams in their debut. Right now, Wilson is a solid flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but don't rely upon him too heavily just yet.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 05:10:27 -0800
The New York Giants will lean on RB David Wilson to help carry the rushing load along with RB Ahmad Bradshaw following the injury to RB Andre Brown (fibula) in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is likely to see an increase in touches with RB Andre Brown (fibula) suffering a broken left fibula in the win. He is worth adding in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if you're desperate for RB help.
Tue, 20 Nov 2012 16:44:37 -0800
New York Giants RB David Wilson is frustrated with his lack of opportunities to prove himself this season. "They say those statements, but I haven't been put in a situation to see if I could pick up a blitz," Wilson said. "So I don't know if it's from my college film or what that comes from. But I'm just waiting for my opportunity to get out there." The coaching staff has expressed their lack of faith in Wilson's pass-blocking abilities, and ball control is also in question.
Fri, 16 Nov 2012 14:47:42 -0800
New York Giants head coach stated that the team planned to use RB David Wilson more in Week 10, but the game situations didn't dictate it.

However, there are still worries about his pass-catching and blocking abilities.
Tue, 13 Nov 2012 13:24:04 -0800
New York Giants RB David Wilson played in just two offensive plays during the team's Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but head coach Tom Coughlin said the plan to get Wilson more playing time was negated by the game situation. The team raves about his explosive running style, but he'll have to work on a number of things before he can gain the coaching staff's trust. "He's got to be able to do all other things besides just running the ball," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said. "It's not just running the ball when you're a running back in the National Football League. It's about catching passes, it's about blocking, it's about being able to protect the quarterback. All those things are taken into consideration when you determine whether a guy gets playing time or not."
Mon, 12 Nov 2012 18:01:27 -0800

"David Wilson as a weapon is quite obvious now [and] people are really going to have to contend with that aspect of our game."
Sat, 22 Sep 2012 04:27:38 -0700
New York Giants RB David Wilson played just four offensive snaps during the team's Week 3 game. Wilson appears to be still in the doghouse for his fumble in the season opener; however, head coach Tom Coughlin said Wilson's time will come, as he still needs to progress. "A guy that is taken first round, much is expected," Coughlin said. "David is going to have many opportunities." The emergence of RB Andre Brown has also kept Wilson on the sidelines.

Mon, 10 Sep 2012 18:40:16 -0700
New York Giants rookie RB David Wilson fumbled on his second carry against the Dallas Cowboys during Week 1 and wasn't given another chance to make up for his mistake. He never saw another down in the backfield and was limited to just returning kicks during the remainder of the game. Even on kickoffs he was replaced on two of them before getting another chance later in the game. "It's hard to put it behind you if that's the last play you can remember," Wilson said. Holding onto the football was a problem for Wilson at Virginia Tech, where he fumbled seven times (losing four of them) last season. Wilson now needs to regain the confidence of the coaching staff before Week 2, but he isn't sure how to do that. "I don't know. I got to come up with something, though. I just have to go out and practice well," he said.

New York Giants rookie RB David Wilson has impressed the team during training camp and the coaching staff has liked a lot about him. Now he's tasked with doing the same during preseason games. "Practice is one thing, (a) game is another," running backs coach Jerald Ingram said. The Giants are looking for Wilson to add a boost to their running game, which averaged just 89.2 yards per game last season. Even though Wilson has been running fifth on the depth chart during training camp, he figures to be the team's No. 2 running back behind starting tailback Ahmad Bradshaw.
