Summary

David Wilson passed the first step in his journey back to fantasy relevance. Wilson was cleared for all football activities in July; a far more encouraging outlook than we expected a few months ago -- when the medical consensus (neck) called his career into question. The next test comes once camp gets underway. If he can handle back-to-back practices without any setbacks, Wilson vaults back into the race -- perhaps at the lead -- for the Giants starting role.

Giants | David Wilson takes a hit (Fri Jul 25, 05:28 PM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) took his first hit of training camp Friday, July 25, without issue. “That felt good,” Wilson said.

Our View: That's a great sign. Our own Andrew Garda spent the week at camp and talked to Wilson early on about how he felt. Wilson was confident he was more than ready to take the hit and it appears he was not wrong. Coach Tom Coughlin was also impressed with the back, praising his work and conditioning coming back from the injury. Garda also reported that Wilson has seen a lot of reps behind Rashad Jennings and is noted as the second back on the "unofficial" depth chart released earlier this week. Rookie Andre Williams has had a lot of buzz in fantasy circles, but Garda noted that he has been much lower in the pecking order than expected and several times was behind Peyton Hillis for carries. This will sort itself out more as camp progresses but right now Jennings is the lead and is a low-end RB2, with Wilson as an RB4/RB5 and Williams an RB6. Garda will be at camp frequently, so we'll get a first-hand look at how this shakes out.

Giants | Could use three-man rotation at RB (Wed Jul 23, 08:18 AM) - New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on this battle in camp. Jennings should be the lead back, and he's a fine runner and receiver out of the backfield. Wilson could be the team's change-of-pace back because of his speed and explosiveness. Williams could be the team's banger in short-yardage and goal line situations.

Giants | David Wilson looks sharp (Tue Jul 22, 10:23 PM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) was making quick cuts and looked like one of the most athletic players on the field Tuesday, July 22, according to Dan Salomone of Giants.com.

Our View: Talent was never a question with Wilson. He's quick, fast, agile and plays bigger than his size. Wilson led the NCAA in yards after contact during his final season at Virginia Tech. If healthy, he will compete with Rashad Jennings for touches at the running back position.

Giants | David Wilson works with second-team (Tue Jul 22, 10:04 PM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) worked with the second-team offense Tuesday, July 22, one day after being cleared to return following an offseason neck procedure.

Our View: Wilson is working his way back from a serious neck injury. He'll have to compete behind Rashad Jennings until he's ready for a larger role. We should see him worked in as a change-of-pace back (at least) this year.

Giants | Former OC believes David Wilson can help (Mon Jul 21, 01:32 PM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) should be able to help the offense if he is able to stay healthy this upcoming season, according to former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

Our View: We agree with the former OC here. Wilson is a talented player who can make big plays happen any time he touches the ball. However, there are still a few things he needs to improve before the team can rely on him as anything more than a part-time back. Gilbride said Wilson needs to work on his pass blocking and route running.
