Giants RBs David Wilson, Andre Brown: Whoever blocks best will get the most carries

ESPN's NFC East blogger Dan Graziano wrote Tuesday that "it's clear" that the Giants' majority running back will be the player who pass protects the best. Head coach Tom Coughlin solidified that idea with his words.
"You really can't play unless you can protect the quarterback," he said.
The camp battle between David Wilson @4stillRunning and Andre Brown @drebrown35 will be one of the most important for fantasy owners to watch.

Fantasy Analysis:

Blocking was one of Wilson's weaknesses last season, but his coaches have admitted that he has made many improvements in that area. If Wilson shows that he can pick up a blitz during the preseason, he will go a long, long way to proving that he should be the Giants' starter. And if talent is any judge, he should be. There has been a lot of talk in New York from beat writers saying that Brown could be the starter or that the duo will share the carries evenly. I won't argue that Brown will vulture many touchdowns, but the job of starter is Wilson's to lose. I have no problem with him remaining a third-round fantasy pick.
