Ahmad Bradshaw injury: Giants RB expected to play, boosting fantasy value

Jeff Zelevansky

Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to play Sunday when the Giants take on the Bengals, despite a foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to play Sunday when the New York Giants visit the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Bradshaw was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report with a nagging foot injury.

Bradshaw has not scored a touchdown in two straight games, after finding the end zone in every game from Week 5 through Week 7. Andre Brown has taken over goal-line duties, with a touchdown run in his last three outings.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw will suit up, but how much he'll actually play is unclear. On top of that, his fantasy value has taken a big hit the last three weeks, with Brown leeching touchdowns. At the moment, it's hard to call Bradshaw a runaway must-start.

If you do have to start a running back from the Giants' offensive backfield, at least you'll be getting a decent matchup this week. The Bengals are giving up 4.2 yards per carry on the year, and have surrendered nine rushing touchdowns.
