New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson says he needs to change his grip while running with the football to help prevent fumbling. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson says he needs to change how he holds the football. Wilson fumbled on his second carry of the game in the season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys and didn't see another opportunity. Wilson tells Ralph Vacchiano of The New York Daily News that he's going to do everything in his power to keep it from happening again. Wilson is expected to see time in relief of Ahmad Bradshaw on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has apparently moved back toward the good graces of coach Tom Coughlin, who has helped running backs with fumbling problems before. Bradshaw is clearly the running back Giants owners want to have but it wouldn't surprise anyone if Wilson got the first chance if something happened to Bradshaw. Fantasy owners should monitor his playing time and productivity.
