Ahmad Bradshaw says his hand is feeling fine and he will be ready for Week 1 when the New York Giants take on Dallas Cowboys to kickoff the 2012 season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ahmad Bradshaw says his hand is feeling fine and he will be ready for Week 1 when the New York Giants take on Dallas Cowboys to kick off the 2012 season, according to ESPN New York. Bradshaw has been nursing a hand injury over the last few weeks, and rookie David Wilson was impressive in his absence. Still, the veteran will open the season as the team's lead running back for the time being, though injuries are always a concern with Bradshaw.

Analysis: Ahmad Bradshaw is a capable fantasy running back when healthy. The problem in recent years is that he hasn't been durable enough to hold up over the course of the season. He now has new competition in the backfield, and David Wilson will definitely eat into his workload in 2012. Bradshaw still makes a high-end RB2 in fantasy football.
