|Giants RBs to split carries? -- Thu Jul 18 5:45 pm --|
Brown could get "majority of carries" some games
|Tom Coughlin will likely split carries between David Wilson and Andre Brown. While Wilson brings the home-run threat, Brown offers the Giants a well-rounded option. He can run with power, can catch out of the backfield, block and excel in the short-yardage game.
If Brown is healthy after breaking his leg last year, don't be surprised to see him get the majority of carries in some games. He should be the goal-line back again. Coughlin will likely go with the hot hand and whomever he trusts in crunch time. (ESPN New York)|
FF Today's Take: Fantasy owners often fall in love with the big-play backs, which Wilson is. But Wilson needs to continue to develop if he is going to earn the lead role in the backfield - much less a feature-back role. Brown will almost certainly be the goal-line back and could handle a significant workload outside the red zone. At his current seventh-round ADP, he is a bargain pick.
