Flex: Jacobs or Finley? WHIR

Postby cpmcda01 » Sat Nov 05, 2011 8:57 am

Just a week or two ago I was considering dropping Jacobs. Now he might be the primary in a committee. I seriously don't know what to do here. Our TE position gets 0.5 PPR, but I don't think that should be a factor since Finley's targets have not been nearly as high as some of the other elite TE's. I guess I'd like to see Jacobs (or rather, Coughlin) prove it to me for a week, but I'm facing the best team in the league and maybe it's time to take some chances. Thoughts?

QB: E.Manning
RB: Peterson, Wells, Tolbert, Jacobs
WR/TE: Wallace, Finley, Gates, S.Rice

+1, the Giants will probably pass much more than relying on the run, but Jacobs will still get his touches being the #1, but they will still run it. With Finley its going to be a boom or bust kind of thing.

Especially since you said you'll need the risk, go with Jacobs. He's one of the better back ups and a RB is always good to start over a TE
