I think we will go with Gore, Hunter, James, and....wait for it......Dixon.
I know some just remember his dancing from a couple of years ago, and some want to bash him for that failed 3rd down attempt. But from what he showed in preseason last season (cut back on the dancing)..I think he will be kept around over Jacobs.
last preseason, he was play quite well...it was just that Hunter was playing amazing and earned the starting spot. He seems to have been working hard in the offseason with Kaep...and I wonder if he trimmed down a bit, after putting on weight for the team to play fullback last year.

If you are going to claim something you need to have proof of it. Otherwise the webzone becomes a place where Rock Cartwright is a Mike Alstott/Blake Costanzo hybrid even though he may never have played fullback in his career.
And yes, you were taken to the woodshed last night.

Touchdown machine solely because he has been the goal line back for the Giants. Ask any Giants fan and he'll tell you that he's never been a particularly good short yardage or goal line back, though. He's definitely a more talented RB than Cartwright, but doesn't provide ST value or value as a backup FB (he has always been big, but soft).
