Clinton Vs Julius

Postby fantasyfiend » Sun Sep 04, 2005 3:07 am

Scenario

The draft clock is ticking, you need a 2nd RB, two names go back and forth in your head, Clinton Portis or Julius Jones.

---

Who do you take?

A) Clinton Portis - Questionable offense, lack of td opportunities, but is no doubt the focal point of a run oriented offense and has had huge (controversial) success in the past

or

B) Julius Jones - Untested, possible fluky 2004 success, A-train might be stealing some carries, but monster upside, some have him pegged for 1700 yards and double digit td's.

is it A or B

portis by a wide margin.

his schedule is VERY easy. gibbs changed the offense to better match his skills. their offensive line is much better than last year (there were a lot of injuries there). JJ has been hit by nagging injuries throughout his college and NFL career.

portis will have a bounce-back year. he probably won't put up the same numbers he did in denver again...but they'll be much closer to that then last year.

Portis is more of a safer pick, imo. JJ is more risky. Take clinton here cuz he won't bust, but if you're feeling gutsy take JJ

Portis was a bust last year because people took him as their #1. He is an excellent #2 back this year.

I was a downer on Portis until I saw him in pre-season play. Take that with a grain of salt but the Redskins O-line looked very good against the Pittsburgh D. Plus Portis has elite speed so I'd expect a few huge TD runs. Put him at 1,500+yds and hovering around double digit TDs this year. I like Portis better. JJones should do very well also. I don't think you'll hurt yourself either way.

I'd take Portis as a #1 again this year. So by a pretty wide margin.

Portis si a freakin' monster this year! If you don't already know he added 20 pounds of muscle! The guy already was solid as hell. Now he is just huge! I saw him in the preseason game, WOW! I would take him as #1 and he is better than JJ by a pretty big gap!
Keep it lit.
