Down Goes Brown

Andre Brown suffered a fractured leg last night in the Giants final preseason game, but at least it’s only a hairline fracture. Brown should probably miss a few weeks which gives David Wilson the chance to prove he can be an every down back. If Wilson can pass block on 3rd downs and continues to show his explosiveness, he could easily be a top 10 RB this year. I definitely would move Wilson up my draft boards if you haven’t drafted yet, but just because he could be a top 10 back doesn’t mean you should draft him that high. I currently have him as my 17th RB and I would move him up 2 slots ahead of Ryan Mathews and Frank Gore but behind Chris Johnson. You obviously have to knock Andre Brown down as well and his risk becomes higher because if Wilson proves he can be an every down back then Brown’s role could be slightly limited upon return.
