What Happens if Tiki goes down?

Postby prince.malachi » Sat Aug 26, 2006 2:48 pm

Does Brandon Jacobs become the feature back? Will he be able to cary the load for an extended ammount of time? Will he be able to put up decent fantasy numbers? I just picked him up (I have Tiki), does it seem worth while to handcuff the Giants running game?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

They'll trade or bring in a Vet. Brandon Jacobs would not be the starter... IMO. Derick Ward was set to be the backup, but he's out for several weeks.

BJ is just too 1 dimensonal.

I guess it depends on the severity of any injury. If out for a week or two I think Jacobs would be the starter. If out for the season they might explore other options. Jacobs does look much improved over last season though so it wouldn't shock me to see them stick with him as the starter.
