David Wilson named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants running back David Wilson has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back David Wilson on Wednesday was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Wilson had 227 return yards, including a 97-yard return for a touchdown, in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. He also finished with 100 yards and two rushing touchdowns on 13 carries.

New York's starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw this week underwent a number of tests on his injured knee and the Giants have yet to announce if Bradshaw will play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Wilson would start in place of Bradshaw, who was injured the win over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson should be owned in every league, even if Bradshaw is able to play this week. Wilson can't be ignored after his effort against the Saints.

Atlanta's defense struggles against the run and Wilson could be in for a big fantasy day in Week 15. He will be, at worst, a No. 1/2 fantasy running back this week.
