In your opinion, who is the consensus #4 running back, after LJ, LT and SA?

Please backup your choice. ;-D

I voted Barber, but Portis is a nice option as well.

I said clinton portis, not only because he is just a stud, but because he is in his third year with the system I believ along with a fairly decent O-line, and defences obviously have to respect santana moss, along with Brandon lloyd who obviously has some serious talent, and antwaan randle el, who seems to be able to do just about anything. the only other person I might take here is steven jackson, he is in great position to have a monster year, especially with faulk out for the season, not that I expecte him to have any real effect, but the insurance helps, tiki's schedule is just too hard, and he is aging, and he has had too much of a load the past couple years, I don't see him having another year like he did last year.

I actually have a very slight edge (1 fantasy point) to Tiki in my season projections, but I'd pick Portis if I had the fourth pick. With a new offensive cord. and improved wideouts, he has more upside than Tiki, whose owners have Jacobs and age to worry about.

I think Portis is the way to go. Tikis tempting but Portis is in too good of a situation to pass up at 4.

I also went with Portis....

In a PPR it would be really hard to pass up Tiki there but in a redraft Portis easily.....

Portis. Much less risk then the other guys vying for the spot.

How about in a PPR league? Does Tiki take the cake?
