David Wilson Tweets He’s ‘Cleared For Everything’

New York Giants running back David Wilson took to Twitter to announce that he has been medically cleared to resume football activity. More specifically, he’s been “cleared for everything.” 

 

Yesterday the Giants offense got some bad news with the retirement of guard Chris Snee but today they get some of the good variety. David Wilson has had trouble catching on in the NFL but the raw talent still exists. One only needs to watch some of the kick returns he had to know that his speed and maneuverability can make a difference on the field. 

He will not overtake Rashad Jennings for the starting tailback job but could take a decent chunk of work as a change-of-pace, assuming he can learn to hold onto the ball this season. Those that still think Jennings is a bargain should continue to think that. And those that think Jennings is a bust waiting to happen should also continue to think that.

    I am one of those that think Jennings could be a steal this year. Wilson has a ton of talent, but he will have to overcome Coughlin’s doghouse (due to fumbling issues) while trying to come back from a major neck injury. I think Jennings will be used in the red zone and passing situations for the Giants. He has a great opportunity for 8-10 touchdowns and around 40 receptions. Wilson could get 5 carries a game, but he will be their home run threat, while Jennings will get the bulk of the work and fantasy points. To be honest, I also got burnt by having Wilson on my fantasy team last year, so he is also in my doghouse.

    Hey Ryan, I know all about your love for Jennings… I’m reading your sleeper picks right now! But honestly I don’t want him unless he falls in my lap late in drafts. And by late, I’m thinking the end of the fourth or fifth round. If he’s still there I would draft him.

    Where do you think he should be drafted?

    The forgotten piece here is Andre Williams. While he lacks the straight ahead speed of wilson & the lateral agility of jennings, he hits holes hard and doesn’t put the ball on the turf. This entire backfield is going to be a mess, assuming Wilson is truly healthy.

      Adam, I think Williams can be a decent support cast type of player but he will likely take work away from Peyton Hillis. In camp, I expect Williams to win that job of short yardage/goal line which will make Hillis expendable. But I agree that this backfield could be a big mess.

    I think Jennings is a solid RB2 in both standard and PPR leagues. That being said, I would expect him to get drafted between late 4th round and early 6th round. As far as running backs go, he will usually go anywhere between the 18-25 running back selected. I consider him a “sleeper” because he will be drafted after guys with more name value (Ray Rice and Frank Gore) and should put up better numbers.

    I would be fine drafting him in the 4th or 5th round in a 12 team league.
