Giants "most excited about" David Wilson

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

The New York Daily News listed Giants RB David Wilson as their pick for "Potential Breakout Star":

When the Giants let Ahmad Bradshaw go (to the Colts) it cleared the way for their spectacular, 2012 first-round pick in the backfield. Yes, he’ll share the workload with Andre Brown, but Wilson is the guy the coaches are most excited about. He has electric speed and jaw-dropping moves and he’ll have plenty of opportunities to flash both. He just has to prove he can hold onto the ball and block a little, too.

Fantasy Impact: 

GM Jerry Reese said that David Wilson could be a "lead back," but didn't anoint him the starter in 2013. Andre Brown figures to get all of the goal line work and may eat into Wilson's touches in the Giants' base offense as well. Don't forget that Brown averaged more YPC (5.3) than did Wilson (5.0). But it certainly sounds like the Giants want Wilson to be "the guy."
