Brandon Jacobs is a 49er. Different team, same old story?
Dorian “The Trashman” Colbert, RosterWatch.com
Former Giant Brandon Jacobs (also known in these parts as the Tiptoe Burglar) is now a west coast man. He reached a deal with the 49ers that effectively adds him to the roster as the third best back on the team. There are no guarantees here as Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter are both capable backs, but Jacobs could end up seeing a good bit of goal line work in an effort to keep Gore healthy for as long as possible. I really don’t see his role changing much from his recent career in New York, so I would rate him about the same. Possibly slightly worse in fantasy leagues. He’ll most likely continue to be the headache he has been for the past few seasons.
