Quick fantasy outlook: When the Giants drafted David Wilson in the 1st round of the 2012 rookie draft, it was an acknowledgement that the team needed more productivity from a running back position that had failed to deliver on a week in, week out basis. Brandon Jacobs was sent packing and Wilson was going to slot in behind starter Ahmad Bradshaw for a season or two, and play a significant albeit complementary role. But the NFL is a fickle beast, and the 2012 season didn't go according to plan. Ahmad Bradshaw did his part (1,015 yards rushing in 12 starts) but battled injuries throughout the season - but Wilson fell into his coaches dog house early and had to dig himself out of a deep hole. Coming out of Virginia Tech, Wilson had the requisite size, speed, power and vision to be an NFL feature back. His main red flag was a tendency to fumble and, sure enough, he put the ball on the ground in Week One of his rookie season. Wilson barely saw the field until injuries to both Bradshaw and Andre Brown forced Coach Coughlin's hand. In Week 13, Wilson amassed 100 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 13 carries, and we finally saw the skills that made him a 1st round choice. Although he didn't play many offensive snaps as a rookie, Wilson did lead the league in kickoffs and kick return yardage, another illustration of his explosiveness. Entering 2013, the picture is decidedly brighter for Wilson as the Giants have parted ways with Ahmad Bradshaw, Wilson has been the lead back throughout training camp, and is set to receive the lion's share of carries as Andre Brown unfortunately broke his leg again in the final preseason game. Wilson could emerge as the league's next great workhorse.
