For the second consecutive practice, New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw did not participate on Thursday. As noted yesterday here on FFToolbox, Bradshaw was held out because of a knee injury that also forced him out of action in Week 15. Rookie David Wilson is the favorite to start should Bradshaw be unable to play, but also expect a healthy dose of Kregg Lumpkin as well. Bradshaw remains questionable and looks as though he will be a game-time decision if not ruled inactive at the end of the week.
Given head coach Tom Coughlin's hot and cold approach with Wilson, he's a risk/reward fantasy option in Week 16. The rookie was only given 13 touches last week, which is okay, but most of us were expecting at least 20. Lumpkin poached some touches away and played well in his limited action. Fantasy owners should also be wary of Bradshaw splitting carries should he play. Although the sixth-year back is a workhorse for the Giants, he has only scored one touchdown since Oct. 21.
