Giants RB Andre Brown gets first-team reps

In spite of being consider "out indefinitely" just a week ago, New York Giants running back Andre Brown @drebrown35 received first-team reps during Wednesday's practice. RB David Wilson @4stillRunning figured to have a jump on Brown after the rookie exploded for 89 yards on only nine carries in the last two weeks. With RB Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw dealing with that nagging foot injury, Brown currently has the inside track on a featured role.

Fantasy Analysis:

Let's not forget that Brown rushed for 184 yards and three TDs in just two games a weeks ago. If Bradshaw is out against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Brown is a fantasy RB2 with some serious upside. The Skins rank 32nd in pass yards allowed per game so while Brown may not be the focus, a red-hot Eli Manning could only benefit a ground attack. If Brown is available in your league, pick him up immediately.

Bah. Bradshaw will play. He does this all the time - his foot/feet issues are chronic. He'll skip practices and then suit up and do fine. Occasionally he even sports a walking boot during the week. The Giants won't sit him because they've got no one else in the backfield who can pass-protect like he can. Honestly, few RBs in the league can pass-protect the way Bradshaw can.

@ mross Ugh.. Hope youre right. I'm in a pickle having Gore on my bench, going tonight on a short week against a lively D....Knew these days could come drafting Ahmad, but he's now the feature back in a superb offense..gotta roll with him.

Don't even sweat it. Bradshaw has played with far worse. He's a tough dude.

Looking more and more likely Bradshaw will sit. I like Brown to start and get decent numbers.
