Giants backup RBs deep league options if healthy
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (12/5/13) Giants running backs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs have rotated inactive weeks since Andre Brown's return -- Hillis was out Weeks 11 and 12, Jacobs was out 10 and 13. But when the two have played, they've been fairly helpful to deeper league (16-plus teams) owners.
Hillis had 45 rushing yards in Week 13 against Washington and 21 in Week 10 against Oakland before fumbling and giving way to Brown; Jacobs ran for 75 in Week 12 and scored a touchdown in Week 11.
Neither should be on rosters of standard-sized leagues, outside of handcuffs to Brown. But in deeper leagues, where a touchdown could be a boon for a Fantasy owner, the active back here may have some value on a weekly basis.
Brandon Jacobs practices but is not 100 percent
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (12/4/13) Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, who was inactive Week 13, "sounded like he labored a bit through practice with his knee injury," reports the New York Daily News. Jacobs is unsure whether he'll play Sunday at San Diego.
Brandon Jacobs is looking for a job this offseason after he was cut by the 49ers last year in a wasted season. Jacobs appeared in just two games for the 49ers and had five carries for 7 yards. Itís the only time in his eight-year career heís failed to score a touchdown. Jacobsí best days are behind him, but he might land with a team as a short-yardage back. Keep an eye on where he ends up, but Jacobs isnít worth drafting in the majority of leagues. (Updated 4/25/13)
