The loss of Ben Tate has left a significant hole in the Houston Texans backfield, especially given starting running back Arian Foster’s injury history, so the team is looking for a relatively cheap replacement.

Enter Andre Brown, formerly of the New York Giants, who visited the Texans on Monday and agreed to terms on a deal with the team, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Fantasy Impact:

Brown will back up Arian Foster and offer some insurance in case Foster's injuries catch up with him.

'No reason' to believe David Wilson won't play in 2014
Monday, February 17, 2014, 10:57am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Giants beat writer Dan Graziano on RB David Wilson: "A source close to the situation told me this week that Wilson is recovering very well from his neck surgery, lifting weights and working out and that there's 'no reason to believe he won't be playing' in 2014."

Fantasy Impact:

The Giants RB situation could once again be muddled heading into the 2014 season. Andre Brown is a free agent and Wilson is coming off of neck surgery. Until a pecking order is established, this is probably a situation to avoid at this point.

Giants interested in re-signing Andre Brown

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Giants RB Andre Brown, who had almost 600 all purpose yards in eight games, is an impending free agent who has been measured about his future plans. After being involved in more than a dozen league transactions already, cut and signed by five different teams, Brown knows not to get his hopes up.

As he left the facility on Monday, though, he told The Star-Ledger he would be willing to get a deal done with the Giants as soon as possible. According to a person familiar with the situation, the team has already expressed interest in retaining the running back for next season.

Fantasy Impact:

David Wilson's long-term health is a question mark, so the Giants would be wise to lock up Brown to an affordable deal.

Brandon Jacobs says he's undecided about playing next year, but he'll need four months of recovery time from his knee surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

It doesn't seem likely that Jacobs would return to the Giants, but the team will need to keep Andre Brown and David Wilson on the field first.

NY Daily News - [Full Article]

There are some people who think Giants RB David Wilson should never play again because of his neck injury, though he apparently is determined to try. Still, betting on him is risky. Same with Andre Brown, who has spent half of each of the last two seasons on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact:

The Giants' backfield is likely to look a good bit different heading into the 2014 season. Brown is very capable but has a long injury history. The G-Men are likely to draft/sign another RB this offseason in case Wilson can't play.

Andre Brown leaves with concussion

Giants RB Andre Brown left the game in overtime with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

That left Michael Cox as their only healthy running back, and resulted in tight end Bear Pascoe ending up with his first career carry, which went for two yards. Peyton Hillis suffered a concussion last week so the Giants will have a lot of questions at RB heading into Week 17.
