Joseph Addai gets tryout with Giants: Fantasy implications

Andy Lyons

Running back Joseph Addai had a tryout Wednesday with the New York Giants, who have just three running backs on their roster. We break down the fantasy implications.

Running back Joseph Addai was among 10 players who had a tryout on Wednesday with the New York Giants. The team recently placed defensive tackle Markus Kuhn on injured reserve but have yet to fill the roster spot.

Addai, a former standout with the Indianapolis Colts, was given a tryout along with running backs Mewelde Moore and Ryan Torain. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw is not 100 percent because of a foot injury and the team has just two other running backs on the roster -- Andre Brown and rookie David Wilson.

Fantasy Impact: There is nothing to get excited about here, other than to keep track of a former fantasy star like Addai. It would make sense for the Giants to consider another running back but a lot would have to go wrong for the Giants to turn to Addai or any of the other running backs they tried out.

Bradshaw is a middle-of-the-road No. 2 fantasy running back but continues to lose chances to Brown near the end zone. Brown will be a low-end flex play in most formats when the Giants return in Week 12.
