Ahmad Bradshaw not expected to practice until Friday: Fantasy implications

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is not expected to practice until Friday because of a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is not expected to practice until Friday because of the knee injury that kept him out of Week 15's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Bradshaw, according to Paul Schwartz of The New York Post, will not practice on Wednesday as he works to rest and strengthen his sprained knee.

David Wilson started in place of Bradshaw in Week 15 and finished with 55 yards on 12 carries. Bradshaw has said he expects to return for Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw plans to return for Week 16 but fantasy owners should wait before putting him back into lineups for Week 16. Bradshaw has had trouble with injuries in recent weeks and there's no guarantee that he'll be effective if he's active.

Wilson's value obviously drops if Bradshaw returns but he should still get some work against the Ravens. For now, consider Wilson a No. 3 running back or flex play unless Bradshaw is ruled out.
