Brandon Jacobs is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Jacobs (knee) didn't practice all week and is questionable for Sunday against the Vikings.

Analysis: Jacobs isn't expected to play and his knee injury has kept him from playing all year. He is very unlikely to play and fantasy owners in the very deepest of TD-heavy leagues shouldn't even consider putting the Southern Illinois product on their roster. Frank Gore has looked solid and fresh at this point of the year and his backup, Kendall Hunter, boasts a 4.6 YPC on his 14 carries this year. Obviously, he'll have to get healthy first, but then he'll need at least Gore or Hunter to go down to have value in standard leagues.
