I just think he's not handling being hte #1 very well. He had Brown and Rice taking the top 2 cover guys, and he could sneak around and get grabs. Times change and he isn't stepping up.
This is where reality and fantasy football don't intersect. By garnering double coverage and having safeties cheat to his side, Porter is letting others (the aforementioned Curry and others, like Whitted) draw single coverage and get open.
Sure, he's been a huge fantasy disappointment, but the guy is doing his "job" in that he's making others around him better.
Now, if OAK can get a running game going (forcing safeties to cheat up), and other teams start respecting the other OAK WR's, then maybe Porter's numbers will improve. Unfortunately, those are big "if's" that I don't see happening.
