David Wilson had just 13 yards rushing on eight carries during Wednesday's preseason game between the Giants and Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

David Wilson racked up just 13 yards on eight carries during the New York Giants' 6-3 win over the New England Patriots during Wednesday's preseason game. He also had one reception for nine yards in his two quarters worth of reps. It was a quiet night for the Giants' offense in general. Eli Manning went 4-for-8 passing for 29 yards.

Analysis: Wilson was quiet, but he proved his worth in the Giants' previous preseason games. More likely, the Giants' offensive gameplan was too vanilla to expect much production. Wilson is still entrenched as the backup behind Ahmad Bradshaw. The fact that Bradshaw didn't play one snap certainly supports that fact. Wilson is still in line for a change-of-pace role, and would become a big part of the offense should anything happen to Bradshaw.
