No player's fantasy stock is skyrocketing as much as that of New York Giants running back David Wilson.
The second-year pro has exhibited a C.J. Spiller-esque burst this preseason, and frankly, over the last month of his rookie campaign, he was electric.
In the final four games in 2012, Wilson touched the ball 45 times and gained 273 yards with four touchdowns. He also ran back a kick for a touchdown in the Week 14 drubbing of the New Orleans Saints.
Preseason stats should always be taken with a grain of salt, but Wilson toted the rock 24 times for 179 yards and a score in New York's four exhibition games.
What's more, his backup, Andre Brown, suffered a small fracture in his leg during the preseason finale, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com. Brown vowed that he'll "be back soon," but for at least the first few weeks of the season, Wilson should see a vast majority of New York's carries.
Though Wilson has yet to show much pass-catching prowess, his home run-hitting ability and unquestioned feature-back role make him one of the hottest fantasy commodities with Week 1 on the horizon.
