I like a lot of these rankings. What is becoming more and more clear as when head into mini-camps to me though, is that Clinton Portis is being underestimated across the board. In no way shape or form should this guy fall outside of anyone's top10 rankings. Hell, I have to struggle just to keep him out of my top5.
The guy fell to the 2nd round last year based on a late injury scare, but even on one foot, with Betts cutting his touches, the guy performed at a stud level until he went down.
In 6 or 7 games of football with RBBC in some:
In the remaining 8 or 9 games of football with no RBBC:
Betts = 1100/4
Washington is a very good place for fantasy RB production. People were asking where the vaunted Saunder's led O is going to turn out a stud? It already happened! And Clinton Portis is going to tote their rock in 2007. Mark that one down. I don't care if they went out and traded for Mcgahee this offseason, like Portis advised a couple years back. Clinton Portis is a premier fantasy RB. 2nd round is just outrageous. Betts should make a quality backup and change of pace. But the only factor Betts should have for fantasy purposes is to make him an ideal handcuff to Portis in a later round. Trust me, you want a piece of that Washington run game in 2007.
