Tue, 10 Dec 2013 18:11:22 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) is already pushing to return to the team in 2014, and he indicated that the team would be his first choice over any of the other 31 clubs. "Listed, there is no place in the (NFL) that I'd rather be than right here at 1925 Giants Drive," Jacobs said Tuesday, Dec. 10, after landing on season-ending Injured Reserve. "Nowhere. We could've went 0-16 and I would be happy and smiling in this locker room because I'm a Giant at heart, I love the organization, I love the fans, I love that 'ny'. So there's not a better place for me. I'd rather be here than go somewhere and be undefeated. There is where I belong."

Giants | RB roles clearer

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 14:57:58 -0800

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Jacobs has the lead role, he's basically a must-start, especially with a juicy matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Jacobs will be inconsistent in his production, making him a flex play in deep leagues.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs inactive

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 08:24:53 -0800

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring, knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 10 game.

Giants | Peyton Hillis likely to be big part of Week 10 plans

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 20:38:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is expected to be a big part of the team's plan for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillis is expected to be the primary option, with RBs Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs sprinkled into the equation. "I'm pretty sure they are going to switch us in, switch us out," Brown said Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Hillis is your best best as a low-end RB2 or flex play, followed by Jacobs. Brown isn't worth using in any fantasy format, as he makes his way back from injury. However, monitor the situation and be ready to grab him off the waiver wire if he plays better than expected. The job is likely an open competition right now, with the hot hand getting the bulk of the carries going forward.

Giants | David Wilson not cleared yet

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 13:24:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, an MRI showed RB David Wilson (neck) significant improvement in his recovery from a neck injury, but he has not been cleared to resume football activities at this point. Wilson will undergo another evaluation in a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be out for a few more weeks, so Andre Brown, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will handle the carries for now. Brown is expected to be activated this week and should be owned in all leagues. Hillis and Jacobs likely will see their fantasy value drop because of the return of Brown. If you've been stashing Wilson, this might be the time to give up if you're in need of the roster space.

Giants | Andre Brown fully healthy

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:25:24 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is 100 percent healthy and recovered from his fractured left leg, but he said he will wear a protective shin guard "for the rest of my career." Head coach Tom Coughlin said he's "going to have to wait and see" when Brown will return. It's unclear if RBs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will have a roster spot when Brown returns.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Brown is much closer to returning than David Wilson (neck). Brown could return in Week 10. Grab him off the waiver wire now and stash him if he's still available.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs expects to play after bye

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 11:25:35 -0700

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) said he injured hamstring is feeling good and expects to play after the team's Week 9 bye. He said he could have played Week 8 but wanted to be cautious.

Fantasy Tip: The team's backfield situation will get more complicated after the bye because Andre Brown will return to the team. Owners should wait until next week to get a better idea of how the playing time will be divided between the players. Jacobs likely will receive a lesser role once everyone returns healthy.

Sun, 27 Oct 2013 08:21:41 -0700

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox likely will share playing time at running back in the game. Hillis could be a starting option or a flex option while Cox should only be seen as a flex option.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs doubtful

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 10:45:27 -0700

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 8. RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox will split repetitions for the second straight week.

Fantasy Tip: Hillis is worth a start, but Cox should only be a flex option, at best, in cavernous leagues. Jacobs' short-term value is dwindling by the day with the emergence of Hillis and the returns of David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) looming.

Giants | Peyton Hillis ready for bigger role

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 09:51:19 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis said he's ready to take on a bigger role in the running game after making his season debut in Week 7. "Most definitely," Hillis said. "I think it always takes a couple weeks to get back into shape when you're on the couch for five weeks. I'm thinking that, no matter what they ask me to do, my body is going to be in a lot better shape than it was last week, for sure."

Fantasy Tip: At least for another week, Hillis is a decent option for starting lineups as an RB2 or 3, especially with Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) ailing. Hillis is a short-term solution, however, with David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) looming on the horizon.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs not committing to return

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 12:09:24 -0700

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), who missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 24, said it "feels good" but won't commit to returning in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles because "hamstrings are tricky."

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect to rely on Jacobs this weekend. Peyton Hillis looked good in his debut in Week 7 and should receive the majority of touches again against the Eagles. Hillis is a flex play in deeper leagues.

Giants | Brandon Jacobs not a fan of some fantasy owners

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 21:03:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs said Wednesday, Oct. 23, that some people take fantasy football way too seriously. The statement comes just one day after he received death threats. "To the people that take it too serious, us as football players don't owe you nothing," Jacobs said. "It's up to (you) to manage your team the way you want to manage it. The only owners and general managers I owe anything to is Jerry Reese, the Mara and Tisch family. Everybody else, I don't concern myself with."

Giants | Michael Cox does little with chance

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 21:04:52 -0700

New York Giants RB Michael Cox carried 11 times for just 23 yards in a start in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21. Cox started with RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants didn't appear to trust Cox in pass protection, and by the end of the game the team leaned more heavily upon Peyton Hillis, who was just signed a few days ago. Cox doesn't look like a fantasy option with much of a future.
