It’s obvious that the New York Giants have had their share of troubles this season. Aside from their offensive line issues, quarterback play and defensive struggles, one of their big spots that needs improvement is at running back.
Starting back David Wilson went down with a neck injury against the Eagles on Sunday. This left the aging Brandon Jacobs as the only running back to carry the load for the Giants.
The Giants have chosen to re-sign Da’Rel Scott, the same player they released only a couple weeks before. Scott came into the season as the backup to David Wilson and registered only 56 rushing yards.
As far as fantasy owners are concerned, it would be wise to look elsewhere when adding a running back to your team. Combine the lackluster offensive line with the inconsistent play of the running backs and you would be wise to steer clear of Scott and Jacobs.
