all the goalline carries? your nuts, ya, he'll probably see alot at first, and then when they realize that he sucks short yardage, they'll take him out and run a bootleg to tiki.

Plus alot of you guys are saying your very high on him, but mainly if tiki gets hurt, what if tiki doesn't get hurt? Im not totally sure of his injury history, but he's a very illusive runner that breaks the big play fairly often as far as "big plays" go for a running back, cutting down on touches for jacobs, not to mention his huge role in the passing game, also they have a fairly tough schedule this year which means more passing, and alot of screens and such to tiki.

I like the analysis of Jacobs potential. How bout a comparison? How would you rate him in a generic scoring league (20 yds/pt 1 TD/6pts) vs. taking a chance on a Jets or Texans backfield or even a Mike Anderson or LenDale White? This would be based strictly on a "this year" situation.

I would rather take my chances on Barlow or White. Jacobs will primarily be a vulture. He might have 7 - 10 TD but that sounds a lot better at the end of the season than it is practically during a H2H season. Jacobs scored in 6 out of 16 games last year. The chances of getting all 7 TD into your lineup were slim and in order to do it you had to eat a lot of scoreless weeks.
