Andre Brown cleared to practice, Week 7 fantasy value unclear

US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants running back Andre Brown (concussion) has been cleared to practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back Andre Brown has been cleared to practice after missing last week's game against San Francisco because of a concussion. Before the injury, Brown was the primary backup to Ahmad Bradshaw and earlier this season rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns in a one-week stint as a starter.

Brown returns at a good time because Bradshaw is dealing with a foot injury and won't practice until Thursday. His biggest threat for playing time is now rookie David Wilson, who had seven carries for 35 yards on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Brown's best shot for playing time will likely involve an injury to Bradshaw, as Wilson seems to be closer to taking control of the No. 2 running back spot than he was at the start of the season.

Brown has proven to be a good fill-in for the Giants but it's not clear how much of a chance he will get to help fantasy owners going forward.
