New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is showing he can carry the load for his team. In Week 8, Bradshaw continued to get his reps, carrying the rock 22 times for 78 yards on Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys. While he failed to find the end zone, his durability and hard-running continues to be a plus.
Formerly known as a scat back and complementary runner, Bradshaw has shown he can be the undisputed No. 1 in the Giants backfield.
Fantasy Analysis: With the departure of Brandon Jacobs in the offseason, it became more apparent that this was going to be Bradshaw's backfield. He leads the backs, which includes youngsters Andre Brown and David Wilson. However, their presence in the offense has not greatly affected the number of touches Bradshaw has been getting.
He continues to be a must-start week to week. Even against a daunting run defense like San Francisco's earlier in the season, Bradshaw rose the occasion. Continue to go with him in all fantasy formats.
