Brandon Jacobs (RB, NYG) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Ben Speed Page -

Baller Move: Stash is deeper formats

Analysis: Don’t laugh, please. Against my better judgement, I have added Jacobs to the mix. While he is ancient, and has looked absolutely dreadful all season, his performance on Thursday Night Football warrants an appearance on this list. In a year with such a small pool of reliable backs, Old Man Jacobs’s 106-yard, two-touchdown performance– to say nothing of the upcoming matchup against a soft Viking’s run D– forces me to say he is worth an add, and possibly even a start as a bye-week fill-in. I’m not sold on Jacobs, and have no intention of starting him just yet, but he is worth looking into, even if just for a one-week fill-in, or more likely a hail-mary stash. Good luck if you are in a position to count on him!
