Fantasy Football Outlook: The Giants decided not to bring Bradshaw back for another season and he’s still looking for a new team. We will have to keep an eye on his situation, but he will be signed at some point during the summer.

He will likely fall to a team that will allow him to have RB3 value, at least in PPR leagues.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections

Some of you may look at the projected stats I have below and think I’m being harsh about Ahmad Bradhaw’s outlook. That’s fine, but my main concern for Bradshaw is that I don’t believe he will hold up for an entire year, because of his chronic foot issues.

As of OTA’s Bradshaw maintains he feels great, and while it’s nice to hear, we won’t know for sure how he will feel as the pounding of the season takes it toll on him, on draft day.

When it comes to injuries I’ve been wrong before; just last year I was down on Maurice Jones-Drew because he had microfracture knee surgery, and as things turned out, he held up fine and led the league in rushing.

When healthy Bradshaw is a high end RB2, and he should go no lower than a mid to late RB2 on draft day.

The Giants are maintaining Bradshaw will be the “lead dog” in the running game, but if you select him (even if you don’t) it’s advisable to stash first-round pick David Wilson in the later rounds.

Wilson has been knocked by draftniks for bouncing runs to the outside, but that is typical for many rookie running backs. As the season moves along Wilson will likely figure things out and if Bradshaw goes down, this is a RB2 running back.

If something should happen to Wilson, Da’Rel Scott should be the next man up; Scott has talent and can be a game breaker in the open field, so keep an eye on him through camp.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

After Ahmad Bradshaw tested the free agent waters and found out that it’s a buyers market, he worked his way back to the Giants and signed a four year deal. Look for Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs to split the carries in much of the same way they did last year.

That will make Bradshaw the starter and gives him value as a top twenty option for standard redraft leagues, and a possible top fifteen in PPR fantasy leagues. One area of Bradshaw’s game I would like to see improve is his fumbling issues as he coughed up the football seven times last season. Still, the Giants continued to use him as an active part of the offense, despite the fumbles and were willing to bring him back, as he provides them a play-maker in the backfield.

2011 June

It’s hard to know what to make of Ahmad Bradshaw’s fantasy value because we don’t know if he will have the chance to test free agency, or if he will remain with the Giants. Basically it all comes down to if four year veterans have the right to test the free agent market or if the league decides to keep them restricted free agents in the labor disputes.

If Bradshaw is to stay a Giant, he is worthy No.2 running back in fantasy leagues as he broke out last season taking over the starting job from Brandon Jacobs. While Bradshaw has his fumbling issues, he did total over 1,500 yards from scrimmage on the season with 47 receptions to give him added value in PPR leagues.

2010 Preview

Ahmad Bradshaw is the starting running back for the Giants and a top twenty five option at his position most weeks. Look for Bradshaw to provide steady points at your flex play position.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: I thought Ahmad Bradshaw was primed for a good season last year as Brandon Jacobs backup, and he did post respectable numbers. Bradshaw posted a 4.8 yard per carry average for 778 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. It seemed he always had explosion and was clearly the best running back for this team in 2009.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Bradshaw had to have surgery on his ankle and both feet this offseason but late in June, he was running with the team in OTA’s. If it wasn’t for Bradshaw’s durability issues, he might have been able to unseat Jacobs this season if the big running back started out slow.

Instead the Giants will probably have to lean on Jacobs like it or not for another season as Bradshaw just doesn’t seem to stay healthy enough to take a full load. Still, Bradshaw will cut into Jacobs overall production and could provide a spark for your team if Jacobs goes down for any time.
