Upgrade Giants RB Jacobs for Week 12

Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been dealing with a cracked bone in his left foot for the past six weeks. Now he has a sprained right ankle that could keep him out of Thursday’s game in Denver.

If that comes to fruition, it’s good news for RB Brandon Jacobs.

The bruising back is dealing with an injured leg, but he’s expected to start against the Broncos and their faltering defense. In their last four games, this Orange Crush has allowed an average of 15 fantasy points to running backs.

That makes Jacobs a viable No. 2 fantasy option.

RB Danny Ware would see more work if Bradshaw is out, but I wouldn’t use him right away. He could be worth adding off the waiver wire if Bradshaw’s ailments keep him out for an extended period.
