Am I crazy for wanting Portis over Williams?

Postby StickaforkinRogers » Thu Jun 12, 2003 12:43 pm

I just got the 2nd pick in our league. We still don't draft for a while. I'm very confident the guy in front of me is going to take LT2. As of right now I'm going to go with Portis. 1pt reception/ 1 pt 10 yds/ 6pt TDS, basic scoring. Some reasons I want Portis over Williams: more receptions, more explosive, I'm still nervous about Williams' injury history. What do you guys think?

I think i'd look at the teams each will be facing, I slightly favor Williams, he has been getting better and better.
Then again I dont think you will go wrong picking Portis, his upside is HUGE.
If you follow conventional wisdom, I think most would draft Williams, however none would be disappointed if they got Portis :-)

I agree. Along with the teams each will be facing, you should weigh how each will do in your league's scoring format. With pts for each reception, along with yardage/td's, I do like Portis. I think Plummer will have a heck of a time starting out and he'll look to his rb and te for a dump pass here and there.

I'd take Portis, but a strong argument can be made for either.

I would definitely take Portis over Williams. Partly because I'm weary of William's injury history but also because I think Plummer is going to help the Broncos big time and the passing game will open it up for the run. I also agree with slowkidz - Plummer is gonna have a tough start and Portis will carry the load for a while. Fiedler (or Griese) knows the system well and will continue from where he left off last year.

I can see arguments for both of them. I don't think many people took Priest Holmes before Faulk last year. It's a new season we're drafting for this year and sometimes you gotta go with your "Gutt" feeling.

trade down.....

Postby danaka » Fri Jun 13, 2003 7:23 am

its simple if you really want portis trade down a couple spots where you still know you will get him and pick- up an extra 4, 5, or 6th rnd. pick at the same time.

I can understand why someone would ask the question but the answer is clearly RW

why?

1) same personnel as last year
2) same system as last year
3) full training camp with them
