Ben Jacobs is a well established player by now, with all the required development over his career to have made it at the top level.

Supercoach Context

Ben Jacobs is pretty average when it comes to supercoach. Ben Jacobs may post a decent score from time to time, but will mostly hover around the pretty forgettable score zone. Selecting Ben Jacobs will likely lead to copping some sub 60 scores during the season.

Durability

Ben Jacobs misses the occasional week with a slight niggle, which can be very annoying for supercoaches. Generally it's the type of injury that sees Ben Jacobs miss a week, but then return fine the week after. These are the type of players who are often a late withdrawal from games. Ben Jacobs is also likely to be not risked by North Melbourne at the slightest hint of a minor injury.

Ben Jacobs is expected to play the majority of the season, but probably not every match. Will likely miss a few matches for one reason or another. This makes Ben Jacobs a bit risky for supercoach, but it shouldn't totally scare you off selecting him, especially if it's a cash cow inspired selection where you take him at a price too good to refuse.

Expectation

Ben Jacobs will remain in the 70pts area for most of the season. Not where you want long term players scoring, but it's acceptable for a cash cow or emergency player.

Team Type

Ben Jacobs will drive you nuts. The ups and downs of his scoring will cause coaches to tear their hair out. And just when you are ready to part ways and trade him, he will pull out a monster score. Putting this player in your lineup is not for the faint hearted. It's gunna be a thrilling rollar coaster ride. Coaches wanting to take an unpredictable, enigma type player in their side have defintely landed on the right option here.
