It is all about Td's in fantasy football. Portis can run all day long for yds , but you opponnent just needs to punch it in from the two yd lin a couple of times and it means another loss for your team. Portis has been unable to get Td's, and much of the blame must go to him.
Tatum Bell put up the numbers portis was supposed to. And he did it on 12 carries!
In all fairness, portis ran real well this game. He had a 40 yard run called back on a penalty as well. It's too bad he's not finding the house or he could be a real force. TD's are variable though in all but the elite backs, so we could see a TD outburst at some point from Portis this season.
