According to NFL.com’s Around the League, Giants running back David Wilson was only on the field for 24 snaps this past Sunday.
After running for 19 yards on seven carries with two lost fumbles in a season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Wilson accounted for just 17 yards on seven totes in Sunday’s defeat to the Denver Broncos. His 2.6 yards per carry have generated headaches for fantasy owners — and his employer.
After projecting as the team’s featured back, Wilson played just 24 of 79 snaps against Denver, losing goal-line carries to Brandon Jacobs and seeing Da’Rel Scott lead the way with 39 snaps on Sunday.
“I don’t count the carries,” Wilson said after the game, per ESPN.com. “I just got out there and when I’m asked to make a play, execute.”
We all know that Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn’t trust Wilson, but if wants to win games, he has to give him the ball.
