Fantasy impact: Brown's performance was well off the pace of the 30 carries he got against the Oakland Raiders last week. It wasn't because the Packers are known for their run defense. It was because quarterback Eli Manning was able to get back on track in connecting with wide receiver Victor Cruz.
All in all, it's not like fantasy owners should ever expect 30 carries a game from any running back. The one thing to note about Brown's day is that teammate Brandon Jacobs was called on to score from the goal line in the third quarter.
If David Wilson (neck) were in the lineup, Brown would probably get the touches near the end zone. Then again, Jacobs was likely just giving Brown a rest anyway.
Overall, Brown is a guaranteed productive starter for fantasy owners. That's something that is welcomed given the Giants struggles running the ball in the first half of the season.
