It was a great first start for Andre Brown and his tenure with the Giants. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Brown took over the No. 1 running back duties with Ahmad Bradshaw on the sidelines, and he did not disappoint with his ground game skills. Brown finished with 113 yards for 20 carries and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Owners everywhere are likely to rush out and grab Brown as soon as they can, so hopefully you're No. 1 on the waiver wire. When Bradshaw returns, Brown won't be the feature back anymore, but he has earned a shot at a bigger workload on a regular basis. Brown took most of the pressure off Eli Manning on Thursday night, benefiting everyone around the Giants offense. Keep an eye out for Bradshaw's injury update this coming week.
