Giants coach Tom Coughlin has positive things to say about David Wilson. We break down the fantasy implications.

When asked about David Wilson's performance on Friday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, "I think it’s a plus. He’s shown us some things we can depend on going forward."

Analysis: Wilson has 43 rushing yards on seven attempts in Friday's contest with the Jaguars. He also had a nifty 48-yard kickoff return in that game as well. The rookie product out of Virginia Tech has been a hot topic for fantasy owners that are looking for a sleeper at running back. Earlier this week running backs coach Jerald Ingram said Wilson will be an "integral part of what we do this year." An interesting factor in this whole story is that D.J. Ware is currently ahead of Wilson on the depth chart. We don't expect that to last too long and it wouldn't be a stretch to think that Wilson can be the team's leading play-making back by the middle of the season.
