New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Jacobs has the lead role, he's basically a must-start, especially with a juicy matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Jacobs will be inconsistent in his production, making him a flex play in deep leagues.

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox likely will share playing time at running back in the game. Hillis could be a starting option or a flex option while Cox should only be seen as a flex option.

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 8. RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox will split repetitions for the second straight week.
Fantasy Tip: Hillis is worth a start, but Cox should only be a flex option, at best, in cavernous leagues. Jacobs' short-term value is dwindling by the day with the emergence of Hillis and the returns of David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) looming.

New York Giants RB Michael Cox carried 11 times for just 23 yards in a start in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21. Cox started with RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: The Giants didn't appear to trust Cox in pass protection, and by the end of the game the team leaned more heavily upon Peyton Hillis, who was just signed a few days ago. Cox doesn't look like a fantasy option with much of a future.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 16:12:38 -0700
With New York Giants RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) each inactive, RB Michael Cox will draw the start in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 15:12:09 -0700
New York Giants RB Michael Cox is expected to start at running back in the team's Week 7 game.
Fantasy Tip: Cox is expected to start but will be sharing playing time with Peyton Hillis during the game. Cox should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.
Tue, 15 Oct 2013 13:11:43 -0700
The New York Giants waived RB Da'Rel Scott Tuesday, Oct. 15. The team also released LB Darin Drakeford from the practice squad.
Fantasy Tip: Brandon Jacobs will be the main ball carrier now, with Michael Cox likely spelling him at times. It looks as though the G-Men will sign either Danny Ware or Peyton Hillis to the squad tomorrow.

New York Giants RBs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) both missed practice Monday, Oct. 14, with hamstring injuries, leaving RB Michael Cox as the only runner to practice. RB David Wilson (neck) is receiving a second opinion on his neck injury. Jacobs is expected to make it back to practice by Thursday, Oct. 17. However, Cox was told by coaches that he'd play in Week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings. He's been active in four games this season but hasn't had a single carry.
Fantasy Tip: Cox's playing time will depend on whether Scott is healthy enough to play on Monday night. Jacobs looked healthy and in shape in his start in Week 6 on Thursday night. He'll be a popular waiver wire addition this week.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 10:47:29 -0700
New York Giants RB David Wilson's (neck) injury is not believed to be serious, and the team kept him from returning to the Week 5 game as a precaution. Wilson will undergo more tests Monday, Oct. 7.
Fantasy Tip: The short week for New York might still keep Wilson out against the Chicago Bears this Thursday. In that case, Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox will likely share the running duties. Stay tuned on Wilson's status.
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 13:03:09 -0700
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin indicated RB Michael Cox still needs to learn the offense to earn a bigger role this season.
