This Year's Analysis History
tlandavazo



Positives
backup to Bradshaw; can start alongside Bradshaw in FF.

Negatives
part-time RB

Draft Strategy
handcuff to bradshaw



Prior Year's Analysis History
malone



Positives
Goalline back, main ball carrier behind good o-line. popular pick this year to return to (modest) glory.

Negatives
RBBC. No one quite knows how the touches will be dished out for sure, but Bradshaw should definatley get a bigger piece of the pie this year. Also Andre Brown should get some work. Is Jacobs breaking down? possibly.

Draft Strategy
Can never have too many quality rb's in a flex league. Great value here, 27th RB off the board, will finish better than that. strangely, Bradshaw went at 5.06. over 1 round ahead of Jacobs.


vonbearsalot



Positives
Big, strong runner who went for over 1000 yards just two years ago, and is a great goal line option. Could be a nice bounce-back candidate in 2010.

Negatives
Injuries! He could spend half the season doing nothing for me. Or Bradshaw could start stealing more and more carries. And his PPR upside is limited. Obviously there are reasons a staring RB is still available at 6.09.

Draft Strategy
I wanted a QB, but the 5/6 run took out the QBs I'd consider here (Schaub, Romo, Brady, Rivers), so I went for value with Jacobs. A starting RB with 1000+ yard potential in the late 6th is a steal in my opinion, and with the RB flex, having three legitimate RBs may be a tremendous asset.


feral



Positives
Bruising back. Good offensive line. Should get lots of goal line work.

Negatives
Rarely gets more than 15 carries. Often dinged up or worse. Team really got away from run run focus last year - will that continue?

Draft Strategy
Really wouldn't want him as an RB2, but seems like a pretty good bet for RB3. Looking for a few multiple-TD games to break into the scoring here and there.


Phyrre56



Positives
Proven #1 RB. No longer sharing carries with Derrick Ward. One of the best offensive lines in the league. Giants will be a run-first team.

Negatives
Some injury history, takes a lot of hard hits. Giants WRs are inexperienced so teams may default to 8 men in the box vs. Jacobs.

Draft Strategy
With WRs getting drafted earlier than I can ever remember, I was happy to get a solid #2 RB in Jacobs. Usually the 2.12 pick is scraping the barrel for starting RBs -- not so this year.


jbohrer



Positives
Big strong back who put up good numbers last year when healthy.

Negatives
Carries could be limited by Bradshaw and Ward. Always a significant injury risk.

Draft Strategy
I got him at 3.11 and think he's a good value there. I probably would not take him before the late 2nd round.


DAFLCommish



Positives
Strong runner, capable of putting up good numbers, definitely the goal line go to guy.

Negatives
Rumors of RBBC, could reduce his touches, not necessarily a bad thing

Draft Strategy
Was looking for a strong RB2, Brandon fit the bill.


RayHandley



Positives
When he plays, he's an animal. Averaged about 100 yards a game and is the doesn't have the threat of someone vulturing his goal line touches. And I'm a homer with this pick too.

Negatives
Can he stay healthy for 16 games? Yikes. And, again, I'm a homer with this pick too.

Draft Strategy
I like Jacobs as an RB2. If healthy, he will put up big, big numbers.


kuhnmd1528



Positives
Big strong runner who will get goal line carries. Plays on a team committed to running. Possible big time scorer for the reigning SB champs.

Negatives
Injury risk. I hate saying that, anyone can get injured at any time, especially RB's. Possible RBBC in NY with 2 other guys.

Draft Strategy
Great value at 4.4 and as my RB 3. I'll take a clear goal line back in a RBBC as my #3 RB. I expect him to get at least 50% of the carries in NY to start the year. May not put up a ton of yards this year, but he will have big games and always a threat to score TD's.


rdsalemi



Positives
Jacobs is playing in his free agent year and is one of the only undisputed lead running backs left at this point.

Negatives
He plays for the freaking Giants. I hate the freaking Giants. That and he's likely to get injured at some point in the season.

Draft Strategy
I was surprised to see a back of Jacob's caliber available this late in the draft. There were several WR picks that I wouldn't have made and this left Jacobs open to me.


Pat_Smith



Positives
Runs hard behind a great OL, and is the best goal line option on the team. Should increase his TDs because of that, and if he plays a full season, his barely-1000-yards should be improved upon as well. Oh, and he plays for the Giants. I love the Giants.

Negatives
The emergence of other running options on the Giants may impact his carries. Big (260) bruising back might get hurt again, as he missed 5 games last year.

Draft Strategy
Needed a second RB before the well ran dry. All this talk about a diminished role and the emergence of other backs does not have me worried. Do you recognize these numbers: 22,25,24,15? or how about these: 26,15,19,16? The first set are the carries that Jacobs had the last 4 games of the season (and the 15 was against the Patriots). The second set are Tomlinson's, same time frame. I think the fear of a true RBBC in NY is blown way out of proportion. Sure he might get less carries, but then again, he might not miss 5 games because of that!


Mad_Puppy



Positives
Just the kind of RB that Tom Coughlin likes. he will get the bulk of the carries regardless what is said to the media. He is the best RB on the team averaging 5.0 yds/carry and capable of carrying the load. A RB2/3 with a RB1 upside. **Playing for a contract** His current contract is over after this year and he has said he will not negotiate the contract during this year. He is a man on a mission.

Negatives
running style (upright) opens him to Injury.

Draft Strategy
I took a major risk with Michael Turner in the 3rd round. Now I add a bruiser of a RB who could really produce in a contract year as a #2/3.


Rabblerouser



Positives
Big, strong and fast running back. Drafted by the NYG to be the short yardage and TD RB that Ron Dayne wasn't.

Negatives


Draft Strategy
Drafted at this spot because of his TD potential. With only 3 RBs on my roster, and all of the starting RB's already taken, I am looking for someone who could fill in on an emergency basis and produce a few points.
