Last week, during the fourth quarter of the Denver Broncos 45-27
victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Denver, Bronco’s running
back Clinton Portis was spotted on the sideline sporting a title
The belt, engraved with the professional wrestling seal, was a
gift from southern rapper “Pastor Troy” and had been sitting in
Portis’ locker waiting for a special moment to be displayed to a
national audience. And with five TD’s to his credit, there was no
better moment for Portis to display the belt than Sunday.
But after a closer look, the belt does stand for something:
Portis’ performance on Sunday was the best fantasy performance in
the history of Fantasy Football.
Portis totaled 253 yards from scrimmage (218 yards rushing and
36 yards receiving) and scored five touchdowns. After much research
done by not only the Fantasy Forum, but also by many other Web
sites that carry fantasy football contests, Portis broke the record
previously held by Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander and
Raiders receiver Jerry Rice.
With that said, let’s get to helping the remaining fantasy
playoff teams in their push toward the title.
Jamal Lewis, RB BAL: In his push for not only 2,000 rushing
yards, but for the all-time single season rushing record, Lewis
will see many carries and many yards this weekend against the
Thomas Jones, RB TB: Named the starting running back in Tampa,
Jones will make the most of his chances this week against
Javon Walker, WR GB: The Packers play in San Diego, so weather
will not be a factor and Walker will be the top target for
quarterback Brett Favre.
Stephen Davis, RB CAR: Davis and the Panthers take on the
Arizona Cardinals this week, enough said.
Steve McNair, QB TEN: Injuries are starting to catch up to the
poor guy. If you have another decent starting quarterback go with
him, but if McNair is your franchise, I suggest staying with
New England running backs: There’s no telling who’ll get the
carries for the Pats, and New England’s opponent, the Jacksonville
Jaguars, has played stellar on ‘D’ lately.
Any player for the New York Giants: They are playing terrible
football, and last week’s performance was the final straw in this
team’s disappointing season.
