Can someone convince me why Clinton Portis is a better pick this year than Shaun Alexander? Over the past two seasons, they're stats have been nearly identical from a fantasy vantage point. If I were building a team for real, I would want Portis as my #1 back, but should he be your #1 back in fantasy this year given these two choices with all the questions about his new situation?
290 rushes 1591 yards 5.5 ypc 14 TD
38 receptions 314 yards 8.3 ypc 0 TD
326 rushes 1435 yards 4.4 ypc 14 TD
42 receptions 295 yards 7.0 ypc 2 TD
Should Alexander deserve to be rated higher than Portis given that he is in a much more stable situation? Not to mention, in one of the most potent offenses in all of the NFL? Debate please...
