Da'Rel Scott injury update: backup RB could be worth watching in fantasy

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Da'Rel Scott is a little dinged up for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Da'Rel Scott (knee) is listed as probable to face the Broncos on Sunday. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and was a full participant on Thursday and Friday. He will play and should back up David Wilson.

Scott took over most of the reps with the first team on Sunday night in Dallas because of David Wilson losing two fumbles. He also caught five balls for 51 yards and led the team in rushing with just 23 yards on five carries. The 25-year-old back could draw the start in what could be a high-scoring game.

Fantasy impact: While he could start, the Giants aren't just going to cast aside their star back in Wilson. The team is going to run at a fast pace, so coach Tom Coughlin maybe considered fatigue as playing a role in Wilson's game, so they aren't going to abandon Scott. He's more of a player to stash, and that's especially true for owners that are tied to Wilson.
