New York Giants running back David Wilson touched the ball just twice on offense in Thursday's win over the Carolina Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants rookie running back David Wilson was limited to just two touches on offense in Thursday night's win over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson had one catch for three yards and one carry for minus-2 yards, and was overshadowed all night by the play of Andre Brown (20 carries, 113 yards, two touchdowns). For the season, Wilson has eight yards on six carries and a lost fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners who drafted Wilson can only shake their heads. If he can't get on the field with Ahmad Bradshaw hurt, there is no reason to think he will play once Bradshaw comes back. After Thursday night, Brown is well ahead of Wilson and that won't change anytime soon. Wilson is worth keeping in dynasty leagues, but he will be a candidate to be released in other formats as bye weeks begin.
