Rookie first round pick David Wilson will start at running back for the New York Giants in Friday night's preseason game against the Chicago Bears, according to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger. Ahmad Bradshaw will miss Friday's game with a hand injury, and Wilson, who has been getting first-team reps this week, will get his first shot at starting an NFL game. The Giants took Wilson with the final pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Analysis: David Wilson will get his chance to shine Friday, and his fantasy value hinges on his performances. Should he impress the coaches, Wilson could eat into Bradshaw's workload as early as the season opener. The Giants drafted Wilson in the first round for a reason. He is a dynamic running back that should be able to make plays immediately. New York won't be able to keep him off the field for long.
