David Wilson's Fantasy Trade Value, Updated Outlook After Week 3
It's officially not safe to rely on New York Giants running back David Wilson as a viable fantasy football option after another lackluster performance in Week 3.
As explosive as Wilson can be with his fantastic speed, the Giants' running game is simply nonexistent right now. The 2012 first-round pick managed just 11 carries for 39 yards in a 38-0 road loss against the Carolina Panthers.

The Giants had 60 yards on the ground, which exceeded the league-worst 36.5 yards per game rushing it had posted entering Sunday's game.
That's not much of a consolation, and Wilson's 18-yard scamper on his final carry in garbage time inflated his final stat-line.
Although there are no other true threats to take carries from Wilson at this time—even with the recent acquisition of Brandon Jacobs—there isn't much upside at the moment in terms of trade value.
Wilson could be had for extremely cheap at this point, but it's far from guaranteed that he'd yield a productive player in return in a prospective fantasy swap.
If someone is willing to take a risk on Wilson in your league and exchange him with a relatively proven commodity, then by all means make a deal.
However, any reasonable fantasy owner would likely look at Wilson's disappointing 2013 campaign to date and stay as far away form him as possible. It's more of a testament to the current turbulence in the Giants' organization than it is to Wilson's talent, but his fantasy outlook is dubious for the remainder of the season.
