New York Giants first round pick David Wilson got reps with the first team at practice on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants first round pick David Wilson got reps with the first team at practice Monday, according to ESPN New York. Tom Coughlin said the reps were scheduled and not necessarily an indication of a depth chart change. With Ahmad Bradshaw limited by a hand injury, D.J. Ware and Andre Brown have been ahead of Wilson in the pecking order, but Coughlin said he wanted to see how WIlson looked running with the starters.

Analysis: Ahmad Bradshaw has proven to be injury prone throughout his NFL career, so David Wilson could be a late-round steal in fantasy drafts. He has great lateral explosion and presents a dual threat out of the backfield, which could make him productive if given the opportunity to get some carries. He definitely has value in keeper leagues, but his re-draft value is climbing as well.
