Fantasy Football Tips: Clinton Portis Will Start For Redskins, Shouldn't Start For You

If you've been following along with our Redskins Vs. Titans story stream, you know that Clinton Portis is expected to play this Sunday, and Ryan Torain is not. So does that mean that you should sign Portis off waivers in your fantasy football league and insert him into your lineup in place of Torain?

Not so fast, bro.

We expect Portis to start for the Redskins, but we also expect him to split time with Keiland Williams.

Don't count on Mike Shanahan moving Williams back into a reserve role after his 31.90 fantasy point performance on Monday night. If I had to bet, I would probably say that Williams will get more carries than Portis, and will also be utilized as a pass catching back out of the backfield, but the rookie will step aside for the veteran in goalline situations.

So is either one of them a good fantasy option this week? Probably not. Not against Tennessee' 11th ranked rushing defense that has only given up four rushing touchdowns this season.
