He may not get 30 carries again but Andre Brown's workload should stay high (RB touches week 10)

Andre Brown had 30(!) carries in his season debut for the Giants, as coach Tom Coughlin wisely eased him back into the lineup. With Peyton Hillis pushed into a clear reserve role and David Wilson being shut down, we’re going to see this type of work from Brown for here on out. It probably won’t be 31 touches a week mind you, but he roughly tripled Hillis’ snap count and had...

Brown fractured the same leg last season and losing him puts the Giants in a jam as the regular season approaches. Brown was set to be the primary backup to David Wilson.

Potential starter Andre Brown among running Backs to target late

So, Andre Brown went and fumbled in his first preseason game, which is a shame because he isn’t as talented as David Wilson, but don’t fret, he is going to get the chances to punch home TDs and his fair share of carries. He is a back who should be targeted, even if he doesn't start he'll have value as he plays with a powerful offense and will be seeing the majority of...
