Chargers RB Mike Tolbert has some competition for league’s biggest touchdown vulture.
Giants RB Brandon Jacobs looked destined for the fantasy wood pile after disappearing in Week 2 and Week 3, but the bruising back has become a fantasy vulture after scoring his second touchdown of the game.
This is the third consecutive week that Jacobs has scored a touchdown.
Jacobs — as mentioned previously was a good spot start this week — and now he continues to hold fantasy importance because he is getting all of the goal-line looks. Not a good development for those holding RB Ahmad Bradshaw right now.
Bradshaw was one of my favorite running backs, but his value takes a serious hit here if this trend continues. And really, there is no reason to believe that it will not. And Jacobs is a decent option as a spot starter — important because Arian Foster, Jahvid Best and LaDainian Tomlinson all have byes next week.
