New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is listed as questionable for the team's Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers. Jacobs missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday. His hamstring injury has been an issue for over a month.
He hasn't been on the field since Oct 10 and his outlook has been worse just about every week. Jacobs has seen the Giants turn to Peyton Hillis, but now they're fully comfortable in using Andre Brown as the featured runner. Brown ran the ball 30 times for 115 yards and a score against the Raiders on Sunday.
Fantasy impact: The Giants aren't going to be using much of Jacobs. He was just a stop-gap option for them with Brown, David Wilson and just about every other back on the sideline earlier this year. Jacobs has dropped to the third-string back, so he would need a lot to happen for his fantasy value to start trending up. As for Brown, he makes for a very strong RB2 in almost all leagues.
