2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Andre Williams led the nation in rushing yards as a Boston College Eagle last season. His size and running style is very reminiscent of former Giant Brandon Jacobs. Williams lacks any real wiggle, but has very impressive straight-line speed for his size and is tough to bring down once he gets momentum. Camp reports indicate that he has seen work with the first-team unit during goal-line drills, which makes Andre the Giant an interesting late-round flier in redraft leagues. While he doesn't have pass-catching ability, he could punch in some touchdowns early in the season and earn some first and second down work. An injury to Rashad Jennings or David Wilson could open the door further to an expanded role that the big back may not let close behind him.

News From The Past 90 Days
Giants list Hillis as No.2 running back
Rookie Andre Williams has more fantasy value
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 5, 4:15 pm

New York Giants
Former "Madden" cover boy Peyton Hillis has moved up to No. 2 on the New York Giants' running back depth chart in the wake of Monday's news that former first-round pick David Wilson's career is over due to neck injuries. Hillis and rookie Andre Williams are the two backs who appear to have the best opportunities to take the snaps that had been slated for Wilson. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Rashad Jennings remains the favorite to lead the team in carries while the veteran Hillis and the rookie Williams strive to carve out their own role in the offense. Williams is the more talented runner and the better long-term fantasy bet. He will easily take over Hillis' No.2 role should he proved to be adequate in pass protection.


Injury David Wilson informed NFL career is over
Suffered neck burner last week after undergoing 2013 surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 4, 4:50 pm

New York Giants
Informed he can never play football again, David Wilson at the incredibly tender age of 23 offered perspective rare in someone so young. Wilson’s dream of playing in the NFL came to an end after two seasons and only 21 games as the worst-case scenario unfolded around him. He was examined Monday by Dr. Frank Cammisa, the spine specialist who last January performed a cervical fusion on Wilson, an evaluation prompted by the neck burner injury he experienced last Tuesday in practice. Along with Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ team physician, Wilson was given the news he braced for but did not want to hear. (New York Post)

FFToday's Take: The Giants and Wilson were both prepared for this news, but it doesn't make it any less disheartening. Wilson will receive his scheduled salary of $997,682 when he is officially placed on IR. As for the Giants, they added Rashad Jennings in free agency to be the lead back in 2014 and drafted Andre Williams, who figures to be the goal-line back and take on more carries as a result of Wilson's departure.


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.” (Giants.com)

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.
