Giants RB Brandon Jacobs reportedly wants to be traded. The Giants should totally consider that.
For purely fantasy reasons, of course. Although, I would surmise that some Giants fans are tired of Jacobs, too.
RB Ahmad Bradshaw has shown himself to be perfectly capable of being a No. 1 back. And having Jacobs there just seems to ruin the flow when he gets in there during his limited opportunities. Well, when he was not chasing his helmet that he tossed into the stands. Jacobs four rushing attempts against the Colts seemed like wasted plays that could have been saved for the Giants players who actually perform.
Jacobs looks like a guy who should just barrel over defenders, and he is good for about one highlight per season, leading somebody in your league to draft him well before he should go. Which is cool. But he gets annoying when he is running when Bradshaw should be out there.
Obviously, this is the NFL and not baseball, so trades do not happen as often. But from a selfishly fantasy perspective, sending Jacobs to a team that needs a running back seems like a pretty good idea.
And speaking of trades that should happen, could somebody step up and take Vincent Jackson before we lose a full season of his value? Looking at you, Minnesota.
