New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" from his surgeon's evaluation to be able to continue his playing career, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson had some value as a RB4 or RB5. However, his career, and obviously his fantasy prospects for 2014, are in serious doubt. Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis or Michael Cox could elevate to RB5 status.

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings will be the lead back with Wilson in to change the pace. Williams could be the goal line back. Jennings is a decent RB3 with Wilson an RB4. Williams could be a decent flier as an RB5 with upside in TD-only leagues.

New York Giants RB Andre Williams served as the team's goal-line back Tuesday, July 22.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Williams becomes the next Brandon Jacobs for the Giants, but as long as he is receiving regular touches around the goal line, he is relevant for fantasy purposes. He will likely be a touchdown-dependent option, but he is still worth grabbing late in drafts to provide some depth at the RB spot.

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.

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) met with doctors Wednesday, June 4, and will do so again in July. He expects to be cleared for full contact in camp.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson will compete not only with his own health but also Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams in this new offense. Wilson is still a notable late-rounds selection in most fantasy drafts.

New York Giants RB Andre Williams said he is unsure if the Giants will use a three-headed monster at running back with him, RB Rashad Jennings and RB David Wilson. "I can't really say they're going to build that three-headed monster," said Williams. "I'm not really too sure yet. I'm just getting here and learning as much as I can. I think each running back brings a lot of different specialties, and I'm just excited to see what we'll be able to do once we're out on the field."

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is a power back that doesn't figure to be much of a receiving threat. He has drawn comparisons to former Atlanta Falcons RB Michael Turner.
