Andre Brown

Interesting the Giants chose him over David Wilson to carry the load when Bradshaw went down:

Andre Brown got a ring and now he’s got a touchdown.

When Brown, listed as the Giants’ third-string running back, arrived at MetLife Stadium today, he expected a role limited to special teams, as it was against the Dallas Cowboys in the season opener.

Instead, starter Ahmad Bradshaw was sidelined with a neck injury in the second quarter and the Giants turned to Brown, known for his celebratory Super Bowl catch phrase, over rookie David Wilson to shoulder the load.

The third-year player capitalized with 71 yards on 13 carries and his first career touchdown, a 2-yard run late in the fourth quarter that proved to be the winner in the Giants’ 41-34 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“It just feels awesome, especially (given) my situation,” said Brown, who was on the practice squad last season and entered the game with two career carries. “(I) went active, inactive, cut 18 million times and finally get an opportunity like this.”

It was the type of performance the Giants needed after struggling on the ground for the majority of their 24-17 loss to the Cowboys. Bradshaw finished with 17 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown against Dallas, but nearly half of the production came on a 33-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Is he worth picking up? Considering Bradshaws injury and how David Wilson has been struggling?

I'm wondering the same thing...

Considering the Giants play Thursday night, I doubt Bradshaw plays.

Very curious to see how the NYG backfield plays out - would think that it ends up being a true RBBC, but who knows.

I picked him up in one of my leagues (first come first serve as opposed to waivers). I will probably make a grab for him in my other two leagues (waivers). He's worth picking up on the off-chance i can use him on Thursday.

Wilson has one fumble and a pass slip through his hands in the red zone to date this season so he is in Coughlin's doghouse. I have waiver claims on Brown in all my leagues. I suspect he will be the starter for the Giants this Thursday night.

How much would you guys pay for Andre Brown on waivers with $100 year budget? I am think like $15 right now to get him.

Is he worth the #1 waiver? I have Sproles and Greene starting for me this week (since Forte is going to be missing time). Is Brown a better start vs Carolina than Greene vs Miami?

EDIT: Just did a little research after posting this to answer my own question.

Brown will probably see the majority of the carries this week and Carolina is ranked 28th in YPG in rush defense. Carolina has also given up the 2nd most FPPG vs RBs in my league. I'm going to start Brown with confidence at RB2 this week. ;-D
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I'd start anyone over Greene this week. Miami shut DMC down. They will stifle Greene. I have bid in for Brown since I have Bradshaw. If I get him, I will start him over Chris Johnson.

I'll certainly be starting him in my 16-teamer in favor of the swill I have at RB2 with Forte down ;-)
