Ahmad Bradshaw marked active by Giants despite foot injury: Fantasy implications

Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE

Ahmad Bradshaw is active for Sunday's game between the Giants and the Bengals, despite a foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ahmad Bradshaw is active for Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Cincinnati Bengals. Bradshaw was listed as questionable heading into the weekend due to a nagging foot injury, but was able to practice Thursday and Friday.

It is unclear whether or not Bradshaw will see a limited workload. Andre Brown is expected to see carries, especially near the goal line, where he has scored a touchdown in three straight games.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw will play, but he hasn't been particularly effective the last two weeks. He averaged just 3.2 yards per carry against the Pittsburgh Steelers and 3.5 YPC against the Dallas Cowboys. More troubling, though, is that Brown is leeching touchdown carries.

The upside for both backs is limited as long as the other is playing. Bradshaw gets carries and yards, but few scores, while Brown sees few touches but plenty of opportunities to get in the end zone. It's hard to recommend either back as more than a Flex option in standard leagues at the moment.
