I would be shocked if Bradshaw didn't play. And keep in mind, Ahmad Bradshaw plays hard even when he's injured. More on that in a second.
You just can't start the un-drafted free agent rookie in fantasy championship week. And it's not because he isn't good enough (he is), nor that Rivers doen'st love throwing him the ball (he does). It's because Malcolm Floyd is on IR. That means the Jets will focus their secondary efforts on Alexander. More than anything, it means that shutdown corner Antonio Cromardie will be shadowing Alexander. This is likely not the week Danario bounces back from last week's goose egg, unfortunately. I have that much confidence in Cromardie's ability to make Alexander a non-factor.
I would go with David Wilson. He will at least get some looks, and who know, with Bradshaw running like a crazy man even when his body is holding on by a thread could mean Wilson comes back into the game. Even so, rumor is there will be a time-share on the Giants this afternoon. So, Wilson has even more value than I thought. On top of it all, Wilson is a very good back with playmaking potential. Go with the rookie RB and all the best of luck!
Thanks for this thoughtful answer!
I'm just worried about Wilson because he was benched last week and he has Lumpkin and Bradshaw stealing carries.
I LOVE WIlson's talent but I can see him getting me like 2 oe 3 points...however his upside is safer and BETTER than DX's, yes.
I could also pick up Jackie Battle...and I have DuJuan Harris on my bench. Either of those better options at FLEX?
