David Wilson was supposed to excel in his second NFL season and was called a “fantasy football sleeper” by most pundits this off-season. On top of that, a preseason injury to Andre Brown all but opened the door for Wilson, who showed flashes of greatness throughout his rookie campaign.
Although Wilson was led to water in terms of fantasy football greatness, he surely didn’t drink any in 2013. After just five games Wilson has found the end-zone just once with only 146 rushing yards and a lousy eight yards receiving. If that wasn’t disappointing enough; reports say that Wilson’s Week 5 neck injury could force him out of action for the rest of the NFL season.
Thees kinds of rumors have caused New York Giants fans to scream and fantasy football owners to put Wilson on their “do not draft list” for next year and rightfully so.
Therefore, Wilson has taught us once again that running back is the most crucial position in fantasy because even the backs with the best opportunities fall flat on their face every once in a while.
