Your gambling on a player that hasn't played since 2011 (who only averaged 3.6 ypc). Playing again for the team that cut him. David Wilson doesn't have a history of putting the ball on the ground and, most importantly, they didn't bring Jacobs in as a result of Wilson's game last week, his workout was already scheduled.
The simple fact is, Brandon Jacobs was signed off the street to be a #3 RB, not the #2. Sure he might get a couple goal line carries and plays on 3rd down, but he isn't Michael Bush. I agree you have to take gambles and calculated risk. This doesn't fall into that category. This is just falling into the hype. You can believe that or not, but it's how the Fantasy Football world really works.
Let's check back in in two weeks when you decide to drop Jacobs for someone else and someone else has already scooped up Bush.
