I agree with Hoosierdad. Portis is the epitome of overrated IMO. I believe Beanie is going to finish strong this year and make a case for being starter next year. Definitely see if there's ANY other decent RB you could trade for though. In case I'm wrong.
okay well i don't think Portis is overrated at all. Just look at his stats every season. There are many issues to Portis, he plays folr the worst organization (and one of the worst teams) in football. They are trying to turn a QB whose strength is ability to rush out of the pocket into a west coast pass first QB (and offense) and it hasn't been working for 2 years yet they don't stop trying. Now they went back to running the football last week and Betts had a good day. That could be Portis every week when he comes back.
And believe me, i've tried getting a trade done for several other RBs, but no one is willing to trade me a RB for Ward, i think partly because people think Ward sucks but this guy has been scoring like crazy every week so only i get it - which becomes an issue when trying to trade him. My first real chance to land a RB came when Portis is out for 2 games.
Beanie is kind of risky imo. Whisenhunt said despite his performance, he won't start because he is a rookie. And the team is a passing team, they were last in rushing attempts last year. I picked up Beanie right when he had a TD weeks ago but has been really disaapointing since (until last week). But you may be right in that things could pick up for him, but i figure its good to have a backup plan or for beanie to be the back up plan. I hear you guys, but im still a bit unsure, i would seriously regret the move especially if one of my 3 starting WRs got injured down the stretch.
