Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
With Ahmad Bradshaw gone, Wilson is expected to get the nod as the Giants’ new lead back. However, the former first-round pick likely will lose goal-line carries and some change-of-pace touches to Andre Brown each week. Problems with ball security and pass protection limited Wilson’s playing time during most of his 2012 rookie season. Wilson received his heaviest workload in four season-ending contests, amassing 43 carries, 247 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns while averaging 5.7 yards per rush. At 5-foot-10, 205 pounds, the very athletic Wilson has blazing speed, great elusiveness and surprising strength. On the downside, if Wilson starts struggling with either ball security or pass protection again, he will see a reduced workload. Wilson offers somewhat risky No. 2 fantasy running back value. But keep an eye on how the G-Men split the touches between Wilson and Brown during the preseason. New York head coach Tom Coughlin always has favored a two-back system, and rumors are flying that Brown’s role could be larger than expected.
