I also have Portis and just read this morning on the denver post website that a deal is close.

Just for informational purposes the S.Alexander info:

I think that Portis fantasy football stock will still be the same even if he's traded. Gibbs knows how to use rb's and likes to play a ball controled offense.
I agree with M_Zimm about Denver having the better offensive line, but I'm sure Gibbs can mold or retool Washingtons to make it again formitable.
In a way, maybe Portis will do better in Washington because he'll have no other rb taking reps away from him, especially at the goal line. It was so frustrating when Portis would get 99 out of 100 yards on the drive only to see Mike Anderson inserted for that 1 yard td plunge.
I'm hoping that the trade does not happen, but if it does, I'm not trading Portis or worrying about his #'s. He'll still be a stud rb.
One last point. It looks like Mike Anderson is looking to be traded as well. If he is, then the Portis deal is probably just a smoke screen. Because the Bronco's can't possible think that Quentin Griffin, Reuben Droughns and Ahmaad Galloway are better then Portis and Anderson, or could they??
