Ahmad Bradshaw has been cleared to practice this week, but what does that mean for Andre Brown? We break down the fantasy implications.
New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) has been medically cleared and will return to practice this week, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Bradshaw left the Week 2 game against the Bucs and was inactive for Week 3. He has 94 yards on 22 carries and a TD through 1 1/2 games.
Fantasy Impact: The Giants now have some tough decisions to make. Bradshaw would ostensibly return to the starting role, but Andre Brown has been electric in his absence (184 yards, 5.6 YPC, 3 TDs) and gave NY's running game a pulse it hasn't really had with Bradshaw. Expect him to see limited snaps against the Eagles while the Giants see if Brown can sustain his production.
