Giants RB Andre Brown wants 22 touchdowns, 1,300 yards this season

Although the draft still in front of us, Andre Brown @drebrown35 is the heavy favorite to be the Giants' goal-line back this season. Apparently, he plans on being there a lot.
"I have to outdo last year's stats," Brown said Tuesday, via the New York Daily News. "Eight touchdowns -- I want 22. I want 1,300 (yards) this year. That's the steppingstone. I have to erase last year's stats and show I can do better."
Brown scored eight touchdown on just 73 carries in 10 games last season. His run to reach double digits ended in November due to a broken leg.

Brown also says he wants to prove that he's more than just a short-yardage runner, that he can do it all. But "doing it all" will be in the job description of David Wilson @4stillRunning this season more often than not. He is an easy top-20 fantasy back right now. However, Brown is a very fine handcuff. He will continue to get a lot of chances deep in the red zone and will get his chances to showcase his overall talent if Wilson doesn't pan out like most expect him to.
