The Stats Say This Is Brandon Jacobs' Week

Andy Behrens at Yahoo! has an excellent column for your perusal this week, chock full o’ stats. Amongst the other goodies to be found is this surprising declaration – Brandon Jacobs will go off this week. Why Jacobs? The matchup stats for the Chargers defense says so.

In a week where the NFL’s most user-friendly run defenses all have byes (Buffalo, Cleveland, Oakland, St. Louis), the Chargers are the team to pick on. They’ve given up 132.1 rushing yards per game. San Diego allows more fantasy points to opposing running backs than any other team active in Week 9. And right now, Ahmad Bradshaw is running on a peg leg. Jacobs is an outstanding play. Start him with full confidence.

Direct all emails to Andy Behrens if Jacobs bombs this week. Check out the rest of the article for a plethora of stats.
