Like I said in the Injury forum, I'm in no way concerned about Portis still being injured, he milked the knee thing to get out of playing pre-season games, but he'll be ready to show he's still got it come Week 1.

Possible, but at the same time tendonitis is an aggravating thing. I know because I have it in my hip flexors and knees. Basically the more activity you do, the more inflamed they get. Nothing to take lightly.

Personally, I think Portis is ready. Aside from his asinine dog fighting comments, I have always liked the guy. That team needs him, otherwise teams will force campbell to beat them, and I think he is a year away from being able to do that.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

What to do.....what to do? How many people here are biting on Portis in the third round? It's so tempting. If he's milking his injury he could be the steal of the draft. Personally, I hope he gets picked in the 2nd round so I don't have to worry about it.

In a 12 teamer, I'd take Portis late 2nd round. If I had pick 1 or 2, I could auto-pilot that. LT or S-Jax plus Portis is great. If you can get him mid to late 3rd, he's likely the pick that can win you your league. I love the idea of going best RB-Steve Smith-Portis with a pick anywhere in the 8-10th range first round.

Well, Portis was being taken in the late 1st round in many early mocks... I'm not sure why he'd even be a questionable selection in the third.

very much agreed, im pairing him with s alexander, and depending on where u get him, or for how much in a trade, he could easily win the league for u...portis has NEVER had a down season, and is almost a lock for 1400 yds, 10+ tds...do the math and check the points especially for a RB2


i traded chestor taylor and crayton for him, so his value was low in my league do to not playing much, but i think he's ready to go back to form...in terms of the draft, in the 3rd he shoulda been a no brainer, 2nd maybe iffy
