New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw had a surprisingly productive day in Week 6. It's surprising because the running back was pitted against the San Francisco 49ers top-5 run defense. It's one of the league's most notoriously difficult units to run against -- not allowing more than three 100-yard rushers in the past 3 years.
Bradshaw carried 27 times for 117 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. So, not only was it a shock that he broke the century mark, but it was even more so when he broke the plane.
Fantasy Analysis: This game followed his 200-yard performance against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5. At this point, it's hard to dispute that Bradshaw isn't a reliable fantasy running back. He's shown consistency and the attitude to rise to the occasion. When the Giants go with a balanced offensive attack, Bradshaw can be very productive.
He's shown he can run in between or outside the tackles, and be a receiving threat out of the backfield. The lack of serious depth in New York also makes Bradshaw the workhorse. He should continue to get plenty of touches and thrive in New York's high-scoring offense.
