David Wilson hurt after giving fantasy owners first TD

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

The Giants running back scored early in Sunday's game, but is questionable to return after a neck injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Note: Wilson has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

New York Giants running back David Wilson has left Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles and is questionable to return after suffering a neck injury.

Wilson rushed the ball six times for 16 yards and a touchdown before leaving. He also narrowly escaped a safety on a run at the end of the first quarter.

Fantasy impact: Wilson's season, even with that score, has been pretty brutal so far, disappointing everyone who invested a high draft pick in him. He sat at 130 total rushing yards and two lost fumbles through four games entering Sunday's action.

The team released Da'Rel Scott earlier this week, leaving Brandon Jacobs as the team's top healthy running back option if Wilson were to miss some time.

Wilson is listed as "questionable" as of now, so keep an eye out. Jacobs, even if Wilson is out for some time, can't be considered much of a fantasy value; he was unemployed only a few weeks ago.
