New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson is set to see playing time in Week 2, despite fumbling on his second carry of the night in the season-opener. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson is expected to play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but it won't be for long if he keeps fumbling. Coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday that Wilson was "a little" out of the doghouse after fumbling on his second -- and last -- carry of the night against the Dallas Cowboys in the season-opener.

Fantasy Impact: It's too early in the season for the Giants and fantasy owners to write off Wilson altogether. Ahmad Bradshaw figures to get the majority of work at running back in Week 2 but Wilson should get his chances to earn more playing time as the season goes along.
