Who sounds like a better start this week? Travis Henry or Clinton Portis.

NOTE: I would have to trade Keyshawn Johnson in order to get Portis. Is it worth it?

Henry is nursing a injury, so the decision may be made for you.

Keyshawn for Portis... ohhhh.. that is a tough call. I'd keep Key if I could. Portis is still very ifffy..

Here's my team:

QB - Aaron Brooks (active)
QB - Jake Plummer (reserve)

RB - LaDainian Tomlinson (active)
RB - Travis Henry (???)
RB - Olandis Gary (???)
RB - DeShaun Foster (reserve)

WR - Peerless Price (active)
WR - Andre Davis (active)
WR - Ike Hillard (reserve)
WR - Keyshawn Johnson (reserve)

TE - Roland Williams (active)
TE - Marcus Pollard (reserve)

K - Sebastian Janikowski (active)

DT - Broncos (active)

I start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2WRs, 1 TE, 1 K and 1 DT.
Now, the question remains, should I trade Keyshawn to pick up Portis? And if I pick up Portis, should I start him instead of Travis Henry?

Thanks for your time all!

I think in your case I'd do the trade. You seem a little thin at RB. Portis will be given every chance to be the man in Denver. Hopefully you can pick up a free agent WR for some depth.

I've never been impressed with Keyshawn Johnson. Make the deal and start Portis over Henry because the Broncos are playing the Ravens and the Ravens D was roughed up by Lamar Smith for 145 yards. Even the Bucs managed 78 yards rushing against Baltimore.

i wouldnt do that trade, portis has too many questions surrounding him. key is a proven player, and is great if ur league gives points for receptions.

i agree with terpfan, besides you would leave yourself very thin at wr, with price being your main man. hold on to key for now and look for a better deal.

So do you think I should start Johnson instead of Davis then? I just realized that Johnson is going up against the Bengals. Is that a major factor?
