NYG RB situation?

After watching Wilson and Scott fumble the game away on Sunday night the Giants have signed Brandon Jacobs again.

So does this make Jacobs the guy to pick up over Scott?

I feel like Jacobs looked pretty good running for us in the preseason last year. He just acted Luke an ass when he didn't get playing time. But I could see him getting a lot if touches and doing well with them if Wilson stays in the dog house.

What do you guys think?
I won't bother picking up either one, I'll believe Wilson being in the doghouse when I see it for more than a couple of quarters.
Ok good to know.

I will continue to use my #1 waiver priority on Julius Thomas then.

Thanks!

Even if NY's worst case scenario plays out with WIlson and Scott, you'd probably still be better off taking your chances with J.Thomas
Coughing said Wilson still the feature back today
Stay away from jacobs. scott would be better but id have neither on my team. grab a Rams, Broncos, or Steelers RB or maybe even turbin from Shiitehawks. peirre thomas, bilal powell or even knowshon moreno would be better pickups

FWIW if you have a questionable RB situation on your squad like me in two leagues he is worth the pickup. Just remember Jacobs in the goal line, pass protection, and his receiving skills make him an asset. He is also very familiar with the scheme and playing under Coughlin. Wilson is vulnerable in pass protection and carrying the ball (duh). Even if Jacobs does not start all it takes is one more error and Wilson could be in the doghouse for quite some time.

Sure, if you're trying to make your RB situation more questionable...

Fantasy Football is all about taking gambles. I dropped Michael Bush for him. It is not like I lost out big time.

WRONG! Its all about finding value through the draft and through waivers. You must take risks, but they need to be calculated risks. I bet all those that gambled on David Wilson to emerge as a RB1 this year even tho he had no track record are wishing they hadnt gambled.

Umm please tell me the difference in a risk and a gamble? A risk is a risk calculated or not bottom line.

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.

LOL ummm ok. Dropping a 2nd string RB for possibly another 2nd string RB is not considered the same move? Dude he played last year and had 5 snaps in regular season for SF. He injured his knee in preseason and if I recalled he scored twice in one game. Somehow he got on the coaches bad side. Players come back from having a year off and still play perform well sometimes. Look at Ricky Williams for example and the amount of time he had his hiatus. To me he has a better chance of starting than Bush other than the fact than Forte gets hurt. All it takes is Wilson to fumble one more time...
I picked Wilson over Murray and Ridley..........
