David Wilson getting a heavier workload doesn't concern Giants: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is confident running back David Wilson could handle a heavier workload in Week 15. We break down the fantasy implications.

The New York Giants expressed confidence on Thursday that rookie David Wilson could handle more carries if he had to in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. Coach Tom Coughlin said (via Ralph Vacchiano of The New York Daily News) that Wilson has very good leg strength and excellent stamina.

Wilson, who ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries last weekend against the New Orleans Saints, would start on Sunday if Ahmad Bradshaw can't play because of a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw hasn't practiced this week and it's looking more likely that Wilson will start in Bradshaw's place.

If Bradshaw doesn't play, Wilson should be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy running back in most formats this week.
