Giants | Unsure of David Wilson's status

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 11:24:24 -0800

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is not sure of RB David Wilson's (neck) status for both the offseason program and the fall. "I really don't know the answer to that question," Coughlin said. "I think a lot has to do with his attitude, the way he feels, the way the doctors and trainers obviously feel. He's not going to be put out there unless he's ready for that. I'm not even sure how he's going to be limited in the spring. I saw him about four or five days ago and he's that same bouncy personality. He's very pleased with where he's at right now. He's able to do work with his legs for example, not as a heavy-duty thing but in a lighter capacity. He's excited about that. He looks good, he feels good. He doesn't have a lot of pain. I'm excited about that.

Giants | David Wilson ahead of schedule

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 06:12:04 -0800

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from neck surgery and should be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has a ways to go before we consider him worthy of drafting this fall. Neck and spine injuries are serious, and once he starts taking contact in drills, a setback could easily occur.

Giants | David Wilson doing well

Fri, 14 Feb 2014 16:51:50 -0800

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) is doing well in his recovery from offseason neck surgery and there is no reason to believe he will not be able to play in 2014. Wilson is working out and lifting weights.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Wilson's recovery this offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks but should not expect much from him next season. The Giants likely will add another running back that will compete for the starting job, so Wilson's role is unknown at this point.

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team will have a contingency plan at running back because they can not count on RB David Wilson (neck) to be the starting running back. "I think we'll have to have some contingency plans at the running back position," Reese said. "I don't think you go into the next season saying David Wilson's going to be our number one, starting running back. I don't think you can do that. The guy is coming off of a neck surgery."

Giants | David Wilson to have neck fusion surgery

Thu, 09 Jan 2014 15:18:06 -0800

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will have a fusion of the vertebrae to fix the herniated disc in his neck this offseason, and the procedure will be performed Jan. 16. The Giants aren't counting on having Wilson available in 2014. "I don't think so," general manager Jerry Reese said. "No. 1 we just want David to get healthy. If he gets healthy, that's a bonus. But I don't think we can go into next season saying, 'David will be ready to go. He'll be our No. 1 back.' Necks can be tricky. You have to be careful with those things."

Fantasy Tip: As fantasy football owners, you'll have to count Wilson out of drafts this fall, unless he drastically recovers over the summer. Andre Brown, if he's re-signed, would be the expected main back.

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 12:44:37 -0800

The New York Giants will not count on RB David Wilson (neck) to be their lead back next season after he played in only five games and landed on the Injured Reserve list with a herniated disc in his neck in 2013.

"The guy is coming off of a neck surgery, if he decides to have it." The Giants are optimistic that Wilson will continue his career, but it's not set in stone.

Giants | David Wilson not cleared yet

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 13:24:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, an MRI showed RB David Wilson (neck) significant improvement in his recovery from a neck injury, but he has not been cleared to resume football activities at this point. Wilson will undergo another evaluation in a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be out for a few more weeks, so Andre Brown, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will handle the carries for now. Brown is expected to be activated this week and should be owned in all leagues. Hillis and Jacobs likely will see their fantasy value drop because of the return of Brown. If you've been stashing Wilson, this might be the time to give up if you're in need of the roster space.

Giants | Andre Brown fully healthy

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:25:24 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is 100 percent healthy and recovered from his fractured left leg, but he said he will wear a protective shin guard "for the rest of my career." Head coach Tom Coughlin said he's "going to have to wait and see" when Brown will return. It's unclear if RBs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will have a roster spot when Brown returns.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Brown is much closer to returning than David Wilson (neck). Brown could return in Week 10. Grab him off the waiver wire now and stash him if he's still available.

Giants | David Wilson to be re-evaluated

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:21:00 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will be re-evaluated by doctors next week.

Giants | Michael Cox does little with chance

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 21:04:52 -0700

New York Giants RB Michael Cox carried 11 times for just 23 yards in a start in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21. Cox started with RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants didn't appear to trust Cox in pass protection, and by the end of the game the team leaned more heavily upon Peyton Hillis, who was just signed a few days ago. Cox doesn't look like a fantasy option with much of a future.

They're going to look at it continuously."

Giants | David Wilson gets good news

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 16:45:14 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) visited a neck specialist Monday, Oct. 14, and he does not require surgery for his injury, according to a source. Wilson is expected to be sidelined approximately three to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: With Wilson sidelined, Brandon Jacobs will continue to serve as the team's top RB. Jacobs is worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex play going forward.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs, Da'Rel Scott sit out of practice

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 14:12:04 -0700

New York Giants RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) both missed practice Monday, Oct. 14, with hamstring injuries, leaving RB Michael Cox as the only runner to practice. RB David Wilson (neck) is receiving a second opinion on his neck injury. Jacobs is expected to make it back to practice by Thursday, Oct. 17. However, Cox was told by coaches that he'd play in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings. He's been active in four games this season but hasn't had a single carry.

Fantasy Tip: Cox's playing time will depend on whether Scott is healthy enough to play on Monday night. Jacobs looked healthy and in shape in his start in Week 6 on Thursday night. He'll be a popular waiver wire addition this week.

Giants | David Wilson's career in jeopardy?

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 13:02:55 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) is worried that his neck condition is season-ending, and he will receive a second opinion Monday, Oct. 14. He's feeling fine, but X-rays have shown that a vertebrae is too close to his spinal cord, a condition known as spinal stenosis.

Fantasy Tip: Not good news for Wilson owners, clearly. Brandon Jacobs and Da'Rel Scott both should be owned if you have Wilson on your team. Jacobs looked good last night and will likely continue to see the bulk of the workload with Wilson sidelined.

Giants | David Wilson's season could be over

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 06:29:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) could require surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a very disappointing season for Wilson to this point. Da'Rel Scott and Brandon Jacobs will likely split time with Wilson out. Scott has slightly more appeal in point-per-reception leagues, but this situation isn't very attractive unless you're desperate for a warm body at a RB spot. If Wilson misses the rest of the season, expect the G-Men to be on the market for a free-agent back.

Giants | David Wilson could miss multiple games

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 21:04:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will seek a second opinion on his neck injury Monday, Oct. 14, in Los Angeles. An NFL source said his injury is "disc-related", and another source familiar with the injury said the team believes Wilson will likely be out several weeks. The team plays Thursday, and then they do not play again until Monday, Oct. 21, in Week 7. With the team's bye in Week 9, the Giants will play just twice in the next 30 days.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Jacobs is expected to start, and he will likely split carries with Da'Rel Scott. Jacobs is best used as an RB3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues Thursday against the Chicago Bears, as they allow just 97.8 yards per game on the ground.
