2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
David Wilson had a disappointing season in 2013, culminating with a serious neck injury that threatened his future as a football player. All things considered, getting clearance to play football in 2014 following neck surgery is a major boon for Wilson's fantasy owners. Wilson is now getting snaps with the second unit and should earn a change-of-pace role as long as he stays healthy. Prior to his injury, Wilson was still a disappointment and often found himself in head coach Tom Coughlin's doghouse as a result of his penchant for fumbling and his issues with pass protections. Wilson is one of the most explosive players in the league, combining above-average speed and surprising power in his compact frame, but will need to earn his playing time in order to exploit his gifts. Learning to better protect Eli Manning alone would create a tremendous opportunity for him, as his skillset is otherwise well suited to contribute as a pass catcher in the newly implemented west-coast scheme the team will employ. Wilson's speed, agility and power would be deadly on screens and in the flat. Wilson received clearance on July 21 to take part in contact drills, but Giant fans and fantasy owners will be holding their breath every time he lowers his head and takes a hit. In fact he has already suffered a “stinger” in training camp, making his future that much cloudier. Wilson has the ability to easily surpass Rashad Jennings on the depth chart, but an early-season role of 6-8 carries a game is likely a best case scenario at this point. From there, health and the trust of the coaching staff will the only things holding him back. Sadly, both of those things could be tough for Wilson to obtain.

Comment: Wilson (neck) had a setback early in training camp. His fantasy value is on hold.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury RB David Wilson to sit out a week
Will have his neck examined on August 4th
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 30, 11:00 am

New York Giants
David Wilson, according to the Giants, will not practice for the remainder of the week and will receive a follow-up examination on Aug. 4 at the Hospital for Special Surgery, the same place Wilson received extensive testing last night. Dr. Frank Cammisa, the doctor who performed his fusion surgery, will perform the exam. (

FFToday's Take: The Giants are being very cautious with Wilson (neck) as they should be. His fantasy value will be in limbo until we get the results of his tests on August 4th.

Injury RB David Wilson suffers burner
Running back taken to hospital for tests
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 29, 4:43 pm

New York Giants
New York Giants running back David Wilson left Tuesday's practice with what coach Tom Coughlin called a "burner" -- an alarming diagnosis for a player who only last week was cleared to return to the field following neck surgery. "We were all praying that it would not be an issue, that he would be able to come back and go to work," Coughlin said. "But we'll see." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: We'll have to wait for more updates before becoming alarmed by this injury but it's another indication with how much risk comes with taking Wilson in your fantasy drafts this summer. Anything higher than a RB5 is too high a price.

Injury David Wilson cleared for "everything"
Giants' RB thinks he's ready for football action
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jul 21, 8:57 am

New York Giants
Just got cleared ..... cleared for everything now the story continues. (David Wilson via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: David Wilson (neck) took to Twitter to announce he's been cleared for football activities. It sounds like Wilson will be able to participate in training camp and if all goes well, will be a compliment to Rashad Jennings once the season begins. Wilson is an explosive player and should start creep up ADP rankings as the summer goes on.

David Wilson to undergo neck exam on July 21
Hoping to get cleared for contact in time for camp
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 26, 4:25 pm

New York Giants
David Wilson is hoping a July 21 exam of his surgically-repaired neck will clear him for contact in time for training camp. Wilson was on the field for OTA and minicamp practices. He took some reps. These were all non-contact practices, but things do happen, and so the team held him out of anything it believed might expose him to any potential contact, just to be safe. As he worked, and watched, Wilson liked what he saw of the new Giants' offense and what it means for him assuming he gets cleared to play in it. (ESPN New York)

FFToday's Take: Wilson may have liked what he saw from the new offense, but his fumble problems and shortcomings as a pass protector make him a poor fit for it. Unless or until those areas get corrected, Rashad Jennings will likely see the bulk of the work in the backfield for the Giants. As a result of his weaknesses and uncertain physical status, he is an end-of-draft option at best.

Injury RB David Wilson expected to ready for camp
Giants running back recovering from neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 24, 7:00 am

New York Giants
David Wilson is an explosive player, but first and foremost we’re concerned about his health. We do think all systems are go pretty much for him to be healthy and ready for contact during training camp. We held him out for spring, no contact at all, but unless he has a setback we expect to release him for full contact during the fall." (CBS New York)

FFToday's Take: Giants GM Jerry Reese seems optimistic on Wilson's recovery but considering Reese also referred to Rashad Jennings as a "bell cow type running back" it appears Wilson is headed for a change of pace role in the Giants new offense. Wilson is also expected to help out on special teams.

Injury Giants' RB Wilson not cleared for contact
Will be re-evaluated prior to training camp
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 4, 2:34 pm

New York Giants
David Wilson’s wait continues, but today he took another significant step closer toward a full return to the football field. “There has been significant progress and healing since David had the fusion,” said Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ team physician. “But the reality is it has only been four and one-half months since the surgery. We anticipate that when David is re-evaluated at the start of training camp he will be cleared at that point.” (

FFToday's Take: Giants training camp begins July 21st so that will be our next check-in point on Wilson. The Giants have added Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams to the running back mix and have kept plodder Peyton Hillis... for now. Wilson is arguably more talented than any of the Giants RBs but he's likely headed for a timeshare with Jennings and Williams when he gets medical clearance.
