I think people may be underestimating the upside for Wilson. Bradshaw always gets hurt and Wilson is the guy to step in and take the majority if the workload in that case. Im going with Wilson.

H2H as pure bench players, I'm taking David Wilson. But what's more important? Protecting my 2nd round investment in Forte and "playing it safe" or stashing away a higher upside bench player who I hope turns into a stud (or could turn into nothing)?

We've already established that Wilson is the better straight up player probably, but I'm looking at the entire picture to try to make a decision.

I dont think anyone underestimates the upside for Wilson.. I think everyone here has said that Wilson has the potential to be a great player, but given the situation I would keep Bush as he's a proven guy who produces as well as the guy he's backing up. I also like that Bush is getting goal line work which may make him playable as a Flex option. Wilson is great and has shown some really good things in the preseason, but he will require an injury from Bradshaw in order to get more work. I still think in this situation, keeping Bush is the right move.

Better grab some Bush. Just cause you got Forte.

If you didn't have neither Forte or Bradshaw, I'd grab Wilson. Bradshaw will get hurt and Wilson has been looking pretty good. Giants wouldn't miss Bradshaw if he went down with Wilson stepping in. IMHO

I'm a fan of Wilson and would say get him if it were straight up as who will be better this season but the fact you have Forte then you have to....."Have To" to with the handcuff here and go with Bush. It's not like Bush will be a bust....he will still get goal line carries and have a good season (he's too good of a RB not to) but I feel Wilson will get more carries this season and have a better STAT line but not by much and since you have Forte and not Bradshaw then go with the safe handcuff and grab some Bush!

Good Luck!

He offered this trade to me and I rejected it. Now I offered Wilson for Bush and he rejected it. :-?

So I guess I am stuck with Wilson.

I wouldn't worry too much about it, Bradshaw seems more brittle then Forte at this point, plus Wilson will see more action then Bush to begin with IMO
