Wilson has reportedly been cleared to participate in everything for Giants training camp.

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.

Latest News

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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings still the lead back (Mon Jul 21, 11:00 AM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.

Our View: That's the best move for the Giants. Wilson is a talented back, but there's no need to rush him back. He'll have to first compete as a reserve behind Jennings in training camp. We like Jennings value as a low-end RB2 with upside.

Giants | David Wilson says he's good to go (Mon Jul 21, 10:29 AM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said that he has been cleared for everything.

Our View: Talent has never been a question mark for Wilson. During his final season at Virginia Tech, Wilson led the NCAA in yards after contact. He's fast, quick and runs bigger than his size. This neck injury has nearly derailed his pro career, but we'll see if he can get things back on track this year.

Giants | Owner expects David Wilson to be ready (Thu Jul 17, 01:45 PM) - New York Giants owner John Mara said he expects RB David Wilson to be ready to go for training camp. 'We expect him to be playing ... all signs are he'll be ready to go,' Mara said.

Our View: Wilson has plenty of talent, but coming back from a neck injury is always tricky. If healthy, he'll compete for playing time with Rashad Jennings.
