Brandon Jacobs fantasy value limited, even with full week of practice

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Brandon Jacobs practiced in full, but is still a limited fantasy option. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Jacobs (knee) has been back at practice all week and is probable to face the Bills on Sunday.

Analysis: Fantasy owners that have paid attention since before August might remember the talk of Jacobs being a thorn in the side of Frank Gore. That's especially true on goal-line plays. Jacobs has struggled to stay healthy most of his career and the 49ers aren't likely going to give him much of a workload. However, they are likely going to run the ball relentlessly against the 30t-ranked Buffalo run D. Frank Gore is still a low-end RB1 until further notice and he could have his best day of the season given the struggles of the Bills. In case you missed it, the Patriots ran the ball 40 times on Sunday against them and ran the ball 40 times.
