Ahmad Bradshaw ruled out for Week 15, David Wilson's fantasy value soars

USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons because of a knee injury. Bradshaw has not practiced this week and the team will now turn to rookie David Wilson as its starter on Sunday.

Wilson ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries last week and also scored on a kickoff return. Wilson could still get opportunities to return kicks this week against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: This is not a shock, especially after how well Wilson played last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. Bradshaw has carried a heavy load this season and Wilson at one point was the No. 3 running back on the depth chart.

Wilson should now be considered a fringe No. 1 fantasy running back for Week 15.
