Report: Giants RB David Wilson could be out 'several weeks'

Somehow, it just keeps getting worse for David Wilson @4stillRunning and his fantasy owners. Today's punch to the gut is a report from Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. A source has told him that Wilson's neck injury is disc-related, and another source said "the Giants believe Wilson will likely be out several weeks."
That timetable is definitely not concrete. Wilson will receive a second opinion on his neck next week in Los Angeles. Yet another source told Vacchiano that "with treatment, this thing could settle down in a couple of weeks." But of course, there's a chance the doctor could tell Wilson next week that he not only needs treatement, but surgery.

Fantasy Analysis:

For now, Wilson is considered week to week by head coach Tom Coughlin, and Brandon Jacobs @gatorboyrb and Da'Rel Scott @DaRelScott_RB will handle the backfield. I wouldn't drop Wilson until we hear that he is for sure going to be out for a very long time. This Giants' offense is going to be incredibly pass-heavy for the rest of the season. That could mean more mixed-bag stats from Eli Manning, but Victor Cruz @TeamVic, Hakeem Nicks, and Rueben Randle @RuebenRandle would all get a bump in value.

Just picked Andre Brown in both of my leagues on Wednesday. I wouldn't read too much into the performance of Brandon Jacobs this evening. The Bears are in desperate need of some DT help. AP, Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, and now Jacobs thrashed this dline. Next up is Alfred Morris. It's safe to call David Wilson a bust in 2013. Sorry Matt. ;-P

Wasn't he picked as the sleeper player of the year, here?

A lot of rb busts so far this year. Spiller, Ridley, Wilson, Martin, Jones-Drew
