Giants | Running back roles shaping up

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 05:26:14 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis handled the bulk of the repetitions with the second-team offense Thursday, July 31. RB Michael Cox is also in the mix. RB Andre Williams continued to receive most of the goal line carries.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins the backup spot has RB5 value.

Giants | David Wilson's career likely over

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:48:17 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" from his surgeon's evaluation to be able to continue his playing career, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson had some value as a RB4 or RB5. However, his career, and obviously his fantasy prospects for 2014, are in serious doubt. Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis or Michael Cox could elevate to RB5 status.

New York Giants running backs coach Craig Johnson said he is looking forward to seeing RBs Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins once training camp starts. "They're young guys, they want to prove it. They're hungry and they want to go after it. All the backs are pretty good size and pretty physical so I'm excited about the position," Johnson said.

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, 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 | 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.
