Brandon Jacobs named Giants starting RB

Giants HC Tom Coughlin said RB Brandon Jacobs will start Sunday ahead of Ahmad Bradshaw.

Fantasy Impact: 

The starting job doesn't necessarily mean Jacobs will get more work than Bradshaw, but it's clear that Bradshaw's fumbling problems have cost him the starting job, at least for now. Jacobs will get a bump at Bradshaw's expense in the rankings, but Bradshaw will likely still be the better fantasy play.

Jacobs has been running well though, and is worth adding if available. It could be that the Giants want to go to a more power running attack after the losses of Steve Smith and then Hakeem Nicks.
