New York Giants running back David Wilson appears to be dropping on the depth chart two weeks into the NFL season. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson was on the field for just six of his team's 84 offensive snaps in the Week 2 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a neck injury in the first half but Andre Brown finished the game with 71 yards on 13 carries. Wilson had six yards on three carries.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson was expected to have more of an impact but his Week 1 fumble on the second carry of the season seems to have hurt his playing time. Bradshaw is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday, so Wilson's fantasy value will depend on how healthy Bradshaw is. Brown, however, appears to be the running back fantasy owners will want to target if Bradshaw misses any time.
