Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks miss practice and David Wilson sets his goals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Hakeem Nicks (foot) missed practice and Ahmad Bradshaw (hand) participated in Sunday's practice.

Fantasy Analysis: This isn't really news that will alter the value of either player and it looks like the Giants are just being cautious. Nicks is expected to play without restrictions on Wednesday against the Cowboys and the X-rays and other evaluations on Ahmad Bradshaw's hand came back without any real concerns. In other Giant news, David Wilson set his goal in an article on ESPNNY. Wilson said he wants six 100-yard games, to average 5.0 yards per carry and score 10 times. Obviously, if he reaches these goals he would be a must-start back in fantasy football and would have eaten up most of Bradshaw's touches. That said, these goals aren't all that lofty and David Wilson should be one of the first players on your bench or drafted as a flex in deeper formats.
