Ahmad Bradshaw 's absence from practice on Wednesday and Thursday caused some trepidation in his fantasy owners, especially with the Giants coming off of a bye week. But Bradshaw showed up Friday, went through practice and is listed as probable to play against the Packers on Sunday night. Despite neck, ankle and foot injuries, he is in no danger of missing this game.
It is difficult to keep the worries out of your head when you see that Bradshaw isn't practicing during the week even though we know he always misses multiple practices per week and still shows up on game day. Bradshaw hasn't topped 80 yards from scrimmage in any game since Week 6, and Andre Brown is taking away all of the goal-line chances. Green Bay's run defense is just OK but given his lack of upside, I regard Bradshaw as more of a flex option than an RB2 this weekend.
