Giants RBs David Wilson, Andre Brown listed as co-starters on 1st unofficial depth chart

The latest development in the camp competition between Giants running backs David Wilson @4stillRunning and Andre Brown @drebrown35 isn't an unexpected one. The team released its first unofficial depth chart of training camp Thursday, and it shows the two as co-starters. Wilson is also listed at the starting kick returner.

Fantasy Analysis:

As much as I love Wilson, I understand that Brown will be an important cog in this offense. He will get the goal-line carries as well as some work between the 20s. And if Wilson doesn't hold up as a pass protector, Brown could see even more time on third downs. But in the end, I think Wilson will be the majority RB because of his immense talent. Giants coaches praised him throughout the offseason, complimenting him on the improvements he made as a blocker. He is a game-breaking runner who can contribute as a receiver. Wilson is still well worth a pick after the second round. Brown looks like a handy flex option, and his stock could go up if the Giants decide to split the carries evenly. As an ardent supporter of fantasy football and the Giants, I hope they don't.
