The Giants running game is being contained in Dallas. We break down the fantasy implications.
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was able to start on Sunday despite a foot injury, however he's not done much for fantasy owners that took a chance and started him. Bradshaw has eleven carries for 31 yards, no touchdowns and no targets in the passing game.
Backup Andre Brown has three carries for 21 yards and vultured a one-yard score in the first quarter. Bradshaw has more than double the amount of carries on the season as Brown, but now has one fewer touchdown than the backup. Even though Brandon Jacobs went to San Francisco, it appears that the Giants have found their new touchdown vulture.
Fantasy Take: Bradshaw has had some huge games this season, including 200 yards against the Browns in Week 5, but there's still some inconsistency in the running game. The Giants have struggled on the ground against the Cowboys today, the number 14 run defense in the NFL.
Bradshaw is still the one to own and start, but Brown is a sneaky backup that could have some big games in fantasy. David Wilson is also apparently a Giant still and has two carries for one yard.
