New York Giants running back Andre Brown carried the ball 30 times for 115 yards rushing and a touchdown in the team's 24-20 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 10. Brown also caught one pass for four yards in the game.
Fantasy impact: Teammate Peyton Hillis only carried the ball five times in the game. That pretty much cements Brown as the number-one back for the Giants in their remaining seven games. The Giants have also tried using Brandon Jacobs and Da'Rel Scott in the backfield this year. With David Wilson's future still unclear due to a neck injury, Brown has no one standing in his way for carries.
Perhaps the most encouraging sign in the game for Brown is that his touchdown came from the one-yard line, a place that fantasy owners can expect him to make the majority of his impact regularly even if there were another player on the depth chart that could take a greater share of the carries.
The Giants have now won three straight games and are still in the playoff mix despite a horrible start to the season. Fantasy owners can expect Brown to play a big role in the team's success moving forward.
