They just kind of rotate each back in for 4 or 5 plays at a time. The exception here being that Ward appeared to be in for a majority of passing situations.
I'm a Jacobs owner, and I really have no problem with this. He still got plenty of touches, and should have had a couple more catches on screens if the timing wasn't all screwed up. I think there is plenty of work here for both backs. Jacobs is the easy favorite, but Ward should not be on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Agree. And since he (Jacobs) lasted until the 4th round I am not expecting stellar numbers.
Even though he didnt find the endzone I am still happy with the 100 yards. When he ran that DB over I almost lost it.
