Dropping him for Engram however is just as questionable - especially with Djax returning and Jurevicius emerging.
ateam - when you say you thought he would return to his mean - what mean were you talking about? The one from last yr where he had career highs in YPG, YPC, and tied for TDs - or the 34.3 YPG career average? Point is, the return to the mean theory suggested Porter would have roughly a 550 yd, 4 TD season - that is, if he played all 16 games.
In the last 2 seasons in which he played a full season, he's scored 9 TD's. This year he has none thus far. In fact in his 1st 9 TD campaign, he caught only 51 balls, he has 25 thus far. As previously mentioned, I feel Collins is just as due. I like his chances vs. TEN/KC upcoming ahead of Gabriel or Engram. I will start him Sunday ahead of Burleson in fact.
