FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
After squandering his chances early on in the 2012 season because of a fumble, David Wilson showed late in the year, why he was drafted early in fantasy leagues. It took an injury to both Ahmad Bradshaw and unlikely fantasy hero, Andre Brown, for Wilson to get his shot but he proved that he could carry the load, at least in a time-share.
I know that I’ve ranked Wilson high coming into 2013 (currently 13th) but I feel like he could be a stud in a limited role, much like Jamaal Charles when he had Thomas Jones. Many will say that Andre Brown is going to eat up playing time and cause Wilson’s value to drop, but I actually like Brown to help keep Wilson fresh.
Drafting David comes at a huge gamble, and most likely he won’t stay this high on the board, but for now, I’m enthusiastic about Wilson’s chances. Of course, Andre Brown as the hand-cuff will...
