NYG RB situation?

I don't think Wilson owners should feel or be discouraged after one game. He could bounce back. It is not like people who picked Lamar Miller or Monte Ball over him did any better.

Still might work out. You never know. Dude is dynamic.
i know it was just preseason, but yeah, wilson was beasting in preseason..... i wasn't as high on ridley as everyone else was. and i told myself i'd never take a cowboy runningback again. i get screwed every time.

unfortunately for him scott got injured today. so yeah, there's still hope.
Wilson is still going to be the man in NY. I still expect big things from him.

RB2 is a tough spot to fill this year. Very easy to over draft/spend on a gamble player there.

CJ2K, MJD, Gore, Murray, Riddley, McFadden... All those guys have some big risks built in. I found that was the toughest position to fill.

that's true. the second league i'm playing i got stuck with MJD at RB2...... but i was able to get Daryl Richardson and Eddie Lacy in the later rounds just in case. I planed to pick up one of those guys in the league i have Wilson... but somoene drafted Lacy in the 2nd.

I picked Wilson in the 2nd round... Don't feel too bad.
My RBs are Doug Martin, Lamar Miller, Deangelo Williams, Daniel Thomas, Chris Ivory
should I try trading for a RB or just stay put? the rest of my team is pretty solid.

I think I can get Wilson from his owner for a good price
Get wilson because then we'd have the same RB core

Martin
Wilson
Thomas

LOL ummm ok. Dropping a 2nd string RB for possibly another 2nd string RB is not considered the same move? Dude he played last year and had 5 snaps in regular season for SF. He injured his knee in preseason and if I recalled he scored twice in one game. Somehow he got on the coaches bad side. Players come back from having a year off and still play perform well sometimes. Look at Ricky Williams for example and the amount of time he had his hiatus. To me he has a better chance of starting than Bush other than the fact than Forte gets hurt. All it takes is Wilson to fumble one more time...

Listen, I'm not going to argue with a guy that lists all the reasons why he shouldn't be a fantasy option and has somehow convinced himself that they're positives.

1) Brandon Jacobs ISN'T the #2... He's hardly even going to be a #3 for a few weeks. You'll be lucky if he's active on gamedays until Week 4 or 5. Lunda Wells is newer brings a newer offense to the New York Giants than when Jacobs was there. He has a whole new playbook to learn. There's people dropping Le'Veon Bell, a virtual lock to be the #1 RB in Pitsburgh when he returns in what is now 4 weeks, instead of 2. And you want to add a guy who has an oustide shot of being a #2 RB in 2-3 weeks? Okay...

2) 5 snaps? Listen, I'm aware he had some game action last year, my point was he hasn't played a significant amount of football since 2011 (which again he had a TERRIBLE ypc average). He barely played last year, including practice.

3) He got on the coaches bad side. There's a green flag indicating he's going to bring a lot to your team!

4) Comparing Brandon Jacobs to Ricky Williams. I'm not even going to touch that one...

Meanwhile, Michael Bush has none of these issues stopping him from getting a healthy amount of touches each week.

Buy low on Wilson immediately if you can.

Yeah, I agree. I am trying to work a trade in my league for Wilson atm because my RB2 situation is a mess and Wilson's stock is probably as low as its going to be all year. I think he will turn things around here going forward. Giants have really very little options at RB, they need him on the field.

This, I'm trying to trade for him in some of my leagues. Spiller too.

If I wasn't so strong at RB across the board in all my leagues, I'd be all over Wilson as a buy low. It just doesn't make sense for me to make the move. If you're rocking someone like Ivory in your RB2 spot, then these next 3 days should be taken CLEAR advantage of.
