At least with David Wilson, there's actually a hell of a lot of upside because of his ridiculous big-play ability. He'll likely be a borderline RB1 a lot of weeks.

That's not usually the case with most timeshares unless one half of the time share gets injured.

Genetics and ton of squats....Some of the most powerful legs you'll see. DW in most situations won't go down with the arm tackle, you better wrap him up good, or feel lucky and catch a shoestring. Talented as Wilson is, Ryan Williams was better as a Hokie. Makes me want to cry what has happen to Ryan.

BTW, I'm pretty sure that David Wilson was in on some 3rd downs tonight. Not just Andre Brown.

BTW, I don't remember seeing this anywhere, but wanted to jot down for historical purposes that David Wilson apparently had minor hand surgery early this past offseason to remove a bone chip in his hand. This report is from back on March 21st, 2013:

http://www.giantsgab...move-bone-chip/

Running Back David Wilson told Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News Thursday that he recently had minor hand surgery to remove a bone chip in his palm.

“It happened awhile ago,” Wilson said at a Boost Mobile “Shrink Hunger” event in Harlem. “I didn’t want to do it, like, before the season. But it was already chipped. So (they) just take it out so it won’t be floating around.”

Wilson was still sporting several black stitches running from his palm down his wrist on Thursday.

The time share will make for a frustrating start to the season, but I'm cool with it.

Brown looked good, but Wilson is a freak of nature talent who will make it hard to keep him off the field.

One big sack on Manning because of a missed block and Andre Brown is back there again. This is the same situation as in Denver, Fantasy owners want the shiny toys (Wilson, Ball) but the coaches tend to go for the boring alernatives (Hillman, Brown).

Baseball and football are very different games. In a way, both of them are easy. Football is easy if you're crazy as hell. Baseball is easy if you've got patience. They'd both be easier for me if I were a little more crazy and a little more patient. ~ Bo Jackson

C David Baas will be out 3-6 weeks with a sprained MCL.

Mike Garafolo@MikeGarafolo51m

Early word on Giants C David Baas: Sprained MCL. Belief is he avoided ACL tear but more tests to confirm that Mon. Educated guess: 3-6 wks.

I'd take Wilson & Brown over Hillman and Ball every time. There is just no comparison IMO.

Very excited to have this guy as my RB3/Flex this year. I think he will have some really big weeks, especially down the stretch. If he can get better with pass protection as the season progresses, I think the timeshare will become more and more in his favor.

Still not sure how such a powerful RB can't seem to block for crap, does the concept just go way over his head or what?

Every single time I saw something great out of Wilson and was convinced they couldn't put Brown on the field, they did anyway and Brown made plays when he had to. Brown is no slouch and he does produce, so I can see both of these guys alternating monster weeks just depending on the flow of the game.

I think most of Brown's "monster" weeks will be TD-dependent. And I'm okay with that.

I believe he is still listed as the KR man, but I don't think I have seen him returning any in either preseason game. Not sure if that is just because it is preseason, and other guys are trying out, or if it means he will not return kicks.

If he did lose the job it is not because of performance and more because NYG wouldn't want one of their best offensive weapons at more risk...he was a stellar return man last year. I would love for him to return kicks this year, boosts his value a ton in my return yards league in which I own him...but what I mentioned earlier in this thread is the more use at RB he gets, the more likely he loses KR opportunities...kinda a double edge sword for us that own him in return leagues.
