Giants | David Wilson's duties as KR may be affected

New York Giants RB David Wilson's number of kickoff returns will be affected by his workload at running back, hinted special teams coordinator Tom Quinn. "We'll see how that all plays out," Quinn began. "Obviously, he would like to do it. He's done it very well, but we'll have to see how it all comes down with where he is on the depth chart and what he's doing on offense. It might be maybe for one or two or you don't need him for one or two, but we've got other guys that we feel good about. They feel good about the scheme and the system that's in place."
In other words, however much time Andre Brown earns over Wilson in the backfield affects however many kickoffs the Giants will feel that Wilson can handle. Fantasy owners, in most formats, would prefer to see the smallish Wilson participate on special teams less often, but that sounds unlikely unless he becomes the featured back -- which is unlikely. Still, he's obviously an intriguing RB2 or RB3.
