The Giants signed running backs Ryan Torain and Kregg Lumpkin Tuesday after placing Andre Brown on injured reserve with a fractured fibula Monday.Fantasy Spin:Torain and Lumpkin will give the Giants depth at running back but don't figure to be fantasy options. We expect New York to finally increase rookie David Wilson's role behind Ahmad Bradshaw.
After a two game skid that had people thinking that maybe the New York Giants were vulnerable, they came out Sunday night and put in a performance to speak to the contrary by beating the Green Bay Packers 38-10.
