Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw has scored twice in the first quarter against the Raiders. His second touchdown came on a 19-yard run. He now has 37 yards on three carries. Bradshaw was a great sleeper coming into the weekend, and fantasy owners are reaping the benefits.
As for Brandon Jacobs, he has eight carries for 24 yards and failed to score on three chances inside the Raiders’ 5-yard line.
In Detroit, Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall has already posted 34 yards and a touchdown on just two carries against the Lions. Willie Parker might have a hard time keeping his starting role in the offense if Mendenhall continues to play well.
