I'm so tired of seeing people say you have to play your studs and then list Portis under this category, he has flat out sucked since becoming a Redskin, this is not an opinion it is fact, and here is my evidence:
Portis has rushed the ball 170 times this year, he scored on his first rush of the year, and has scored 1 other rushing TDs this year, that means he has only 1 TD in his last 169 carries!!!! Stud, I think not
Portis only has 2 games over 100 yards this year, he is not even averaging 4 yards per carry, if you take out the 2 100 yard games he is averaging 68 yards per game in the other 5 games, with no TD's and minimal at best receiving yards meaning from you're so called stud RB, you're getting on average about 6-7 points a week. That's a joke. Not once has he even ranked in the top 5 in RB's for any given week and the week he came closest he finished 6th, but didn't score any TDs that day either.
He is the biggest bust of the year, especially relating to where people drafted him this year, people talk about Kevan Barlow being the biggest bust, but more was expected from Portis and he's not even close, hell Barlow has actually scored more rushing TDs than Portis, he is no longer a stud and unless you have nobody better, but remember just because Portis has the name doesn't mean he's better, Portis should be relagated to spot starting duties against teams with weak run defenses, I've said my peace, now bash me if you like!!!
