New York Giants running back Andre Brown has a broken fibula and could miss the rest of the season. The injury, however, should mean more chances for rookie David Wilson, who has been the team's No. 3 running back since early in the season.
Wilson, who fumbled on the second carry of his career in Week 1, said Sunday (via The Newark Star-Ledger) after New York's win over the Green Bay Packers that he feels like he's prepared for an expanded role. Wilson 102 yards on just 24 carries this season.
Fantasy Impact: Brown has been a touchdown vulture this season but valuable to New York's offense near the end zone. It's not yet clear if Wilson will get the same chances as Brown and the Giants could go back to Ahmad Bradshaw in short-yardage situations.
Wilson continues to have more value in keeper and dynasty leagues but could become a low-end flex play. Fantasy owners will have to monitor how he is used starting in Week 13.
