I'm benching David Wilson week 2 for __________ (1 Viewer)

Idk. My bench has Lacy, Ivory, Powell and a bunch of WRs.
I'd feel fine rolling with Lacy against Washington. I'd wait to see what happens this week regarding Wilson before yanking him though. If they don't bring in a veteran, I'd probably go with Wilson again.

 
I have no choice. I have to start him.
Lets hope Coughlin says the same thing.
I have a feeling the only thing Coughlin will have to say on the matter this week is "Welcome to the team Willis. Your job is to make sure this punk never touches the ball again."
McGahee fumbled five times in ten games in 2012. And at age 32 and after a summer in which none of the 32 teams chose to sign him even to a backup role, he doesn't exactly offer the same upside as Wilson.

Darren Sproles
in PPR this isn't even a discussion.

 
Only other RB2 options are Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas, Ingram, Bryce Brown and Shonn Green. Woof. I think I'm going to roll with Wilson.

It's McGahee and Jacobs. And we all know how much Coughlin loves Jacobs. I'm thinking it's McGahee if he can run.

 
My rb3 is Matthews so if he shows something good tonight as in no fumbles and some positive yardage, I'll be starting him from here on out

Yeah, this exactly. You act like the guys the Giants are giving tryouts to are some all-stars who are going to come in and immediately take the ball from Wilson's hands. That's not the case, these guys are old washed up veterans who nobody wanted all offseason. Lets look at who they're looking at:

McGahee: Averages slightly over 3 fumbles per season over his career. He had 5 last season in only 167 carries... I'd actually be shocked if he's the one who actually gets the call in the veteran signing. It'd be kind of funny if they sign a veteran cause of Wilson's fumbling woes and bring in a guy who is notorious for having zero ball security.

Brandon Jacobs: Averages slightly under 3 fumbles per season over his career. He hasn't actually seen real game time since the 2011 Super Bowl run. So he's about 1.5 years removed from football activity. Oh he's also like McGahee on the wrong side of 30.

What you're telling me is two guys who have had more fumbles in their last season than Wilson has on his entire career are going to be brought in by Coughlin to as you say "Make Wilson never touch the ball again" please. McGahee and Jacobs are old dogs, Wilson is still incredibly young. As the saying goes, you can't teach and old dog new tricks. Wilson can still be bred and trained how to hold a football, McGahee and Jacobs are natural fumbling machines.

I think McGahee is a much better fit.

He can pass block, catch the ball and run short yardage well. All tools to make a good complementary back/3rd down back/short-yardage to Wilson on base downs.

Jacobs advantage is a familiarity with the playbook. Despite his size, he's piss-poor at short yardage running and he has hands of stone making him a ####ting 3rd down/short-yardage back.
