Giants RB David Wilson says he is less nervous this season

Before a late-season stretch that included some eye-popping plays, David Wilson @4stillRunning's rookie year was mostly remembered for his fumble and subsequent benching after his second carry as a pro. Wilson admitted that he was nervous entering last year, but it's not the same story in year two as the Giants look to him to be their lead running back.
"I'm a lot less nervous and more comfortable with the offense," Wilson said Thursday. "Going out there now, I can just play football and run the play that's called and not really have to stress as much."
Wilson knows he will be sharing some work with Andre Brown @drebrown35, who said he is back to full strength in practice after suffering a broken leg last Novemeber

Fantasy Analysis:

The article linked below also mentions how Wilson is more mature this year, so perhaps we won't see him crying the next time he loses a fumble. I haven't talked about Wilson in a while, but let me remind you: I am bullish on him, and not just because I am a Giants fan. He will lose a bunch of touchdowns to Brown -- who might have flex appeal as well as he should total double-digit scores -- but Wilson is a game-breaking player who can be used as a receiver and should get at least 250-270 touches this year. I consider him a slightly poorer man's Jamaal Charles. I ranked Wilson 16th in my personal RB ranks, and I would draft him in a standard league before the likes of DeMarco Murray, Frank Gore and Darren McFadden.
