I would have to grab Portis at #4 in a regular league. As stated Saunders and Gibbs both love to run the ball and the added weapons and a very good defence help Portis out alot.
Tiki is a very solid choice too but Brandon Jacobs vultures some of his TDs giving Portis the edge. If Jacobs was not there I would say Tiki. PPR I would take Tiki no question.

Portis. Third year in the system and Ds can't stack on him due to the other weapons around him. Edge, questionable line, new system, Jackson, new system. Jordan, new system. Barber, getting old, might be 'hit the wall' time.

I like Tiki in a redraft, Portis in all other formats.

Woah...I'm a bit shocked by the results. I'm quite high on Portis but I've still got Tiki #4 in redrafts. Looking at these results you'd think we were talking dynasty here.

I think it's Portis easily in all formats but PPR

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Portis end up outscoring one of the so-called "Big 3" by the time it's all said and done.

Pretty much says it all. Portis is the most proven, given that he's still in a familiar system. Tiki is my 5th, right behind Portis and that's mostly due to age and Jacobs being a slight goalline threat. Edge's change of scenery is a bit scary, but shouldn't kill his value.
