Fantasy Sleeper of the Week--Brandon Jacobs

Ahmad Bradshaw will sit for at least one more week, which means the big man, Brandon Jacobs, gets the call to start at running back again for the Giants on Sunday night. Jacobs may not be one of the best options out there on a regular basis, but once again there are four teams on bye -- New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Indy and Houston (hey, did anyone else notice that the Saints have two weeks to prepare for the Giants?). So if you have Darren Sproles, Rashard Mendenhall or Arian Foster, Jacobs is a good RB to plug in this week against the Eagles.

In Week 3 against the Eagles, Jacobs carried 7 times for 19 yards, and he also caught two passes for 42 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Bradshaw had 139 all-purpose yards and a score. The Eagles rank 17th against the rush and Jacobs seems to be running with more of a purpose as the starter. So while I'm not saying Jacobs will put up Foster type numbers or even Bradshaw type numbers, he could very easily crack 100 all-purpose yards with a touchdown or two.
