Brandon Jacobs sees fantasy value soar in Week 6

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

With David Wilson out, Brandon Jacobs made the most of his starting gig. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Jacobs rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in Week 6 against the Bears. David Wilson was ruled out with a neck injury earlier in the week, leaving Jacobs to shine as the featured back in the Giants offense.

Jacobs appeared to injury his thigh late in the game, but he returned to action. He has 10 days to rest up before Week 7's matchup with the Vikings.

Fantasy impact: If "sell high" was in a fantasy football dictionary, Jacobs' face would be appear all over the page. The Giants finally committed to running the football (of course, Wilson owners are thrilled about now), and Jacobs took advantage of the decent holes his offensive line produced.

Don't expect the veteran power back to produce like this every week. His value is up with Wilson out, but it would be wise to get a solid return investment on him while you can.
