Ahmad Bradshaw Expected To Start In Week 4; Fantasy Value Rises

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) practiced Wednesday and is expected to start in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will return to practice this week and is expected to start on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, coach Tom Coughlin said on Wednesday. Bradshaw missed last week's win over the Carolina Panthers because of a neck injury and was replaced by Andre Brown, who rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns. However, Coughlin said Brown would still have a role in the offense.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw's return and Brown's strong play clutters up the Giants backfield situation a little for fantasy owners. Bradshaw should still be rated higher but Brown is a valuable handcuff and could become a flex option depending on how big his role in the offense is. This also cripples the fantasy value of rookie David Wilson, who has had limited touches in three weeks and is clearly behind Bradshaw and Brown.
