With RB David Wilson injured, Giants re-sign RB Da'Rel Scott

David Wilson @4stillRunning's disappointing season continued Sunday, although it wasn't his fault. He scored his first touchdown of the year, but didn't play past halftime due to a neck injury. The Giants' next game is in three days. With Wilson's ability to play in doubt, and Brandon Jacobs @gatorboyrb representing the only experienced running back on the roster, the team needed to add a player familiar with the offense. They did that on Monday by re-signing Da'Rel Scott, whom they released Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis:

Scott was seeing a lot of playing time on third downs and in passing situations. Wilson didn't practice Monday. If he is able to play Thursday, he would be a flex option. If he's out, Scott and Jacobs would split the work on the road against the Bears. You want no part of that duo for this week.

I wasted a 2nd round pick on this guy. At this point I would trade him for a used dish rag.
