Giants to sign RB Peyton Hillis, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Since DaRel Scott was also injured in Week 6, this isn't necessarily a sign that Brandon Jacobs won't be ready to play in Week 7. Michael Cox will also be in the mix for snaps, though the Giants haven't shown much faith in him so far.

David Wilson (neck) could be out several weeks
Thursday, October 10, 2013, 2:09am

NY Daily News - [Full Article]

Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is expected to make his first start in nearly two years on Thursday night. And it may not be his last.

That all depends on what former starter David Wilson hears on Monday when he gets a second opinion on his injured neck. As it is, Wilson is out of the Giants’ Thursday night game in Chicago with what one NFL source said is a disc-related injury. Another source familiar with the injury said the Giants believe Wilson will likely be out several weeks.

But nothing will be certain until Wilson meets with Dr. Robert Watkins, a spinal surgeon in Los Angeles. As one source said “With treatment, this thing could settle down within a couple of weeks.”

Fantasy Impact:

It's a sad state of affairs for the Giants, who turn to Jacobs, a player who often couldn't crack the gameday roster of the 49ers last season. Wilson owners should hold on for another week and see if his prognosis improves after his second opinion early next week. Consider Jacobs a RB4-type for the time being. DaRel Scott will likely to have more value in PPR formats.

Brandon Jacobs will start in Week 6
Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 11:43am

ESPN - [Full Article]

In David Wilson's place, veteran Brandon Jacobs will get the start at running back, according to Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

But the Giants also re-signed running back DaRel Scott, who was cut just a week ago. It's possible they could look for a more desirable replacement next week, when they have 10 days between games and can get a new backup to speed. But Scott made the most sense as a fill-in on this short week because of his familiarity with the offense. The only other halfback on the roster is rookie Michael Cox.

"I can handle a full workload, there's no question," Jacobs said. "I might be hurting the next day, but I can definitely handle a full workload or whatever they ask of me."

Fantasy Impact:

This is a bad place to look for fantasy value given the matchup (CHI) and the likelihood that the Giants fall behind and abandon the running game. DaRel Scott is in the mix, and may end up playing more snaps than Jacobs due to his previous role on third down. But the fact that he was recently cut by the team makes him a very dicey start as well. Avoid if possible.

If on short term IR, first game for which Giants RB Andre Brown would be eligible is Week 10 vs. Oakland (Giants off Week 9).

Fantasy Impact:

David Wilson gets his chance to show his stuff. Da'Rel Scott and Michael Cox are behind Wilson on the depth chart until Brown gets back. But, the Giants have been linked to free agents Kevin Smith and Tim Hightower.

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

The Giants like former Redskins running back Ryan Torain -- who was the next running back into the game after Andre Brown got hurt -- as a pass protector. And Da'Rel Scott got significant action Thursday night for the first time this preseason and looked good as a runner. Rookie Michael Cox has impressed as a runner and a kick returner, but he likely has more to learn in protection.

Fantasy Impact:

Torain may fill in for Brown, but isn't a threat to David Wilson's workload.
