FANTASY FOOTBALL: WEEK 7 PRE-GAME PLANNER-BE WARY OF PORTIS, BARBER AND MARONEY



As we head toward Week 7 games, Clinton Portis, Marion Barber and Laurence Maroney are shaping up as disappointments in the backfield.
First, this week's waiver-wire flavor of the week, New England back Maroney, won't likely produce the surprising numbers of last week - 123 yards and a TD. Yes, Sammy Morris is out this week but Maroney will be sharing carries with BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Kevin Faulk is expected to get most goal-line carries.
Be advised that Dallas Cowboys back Marion Barber, although listed as probable today, won't be a dominating factor with Felix Jones and Tashard Choice sharing the work. In fact, Internet reports, including the Dallas Cowboys' Web site, state that Jones will be the starter today, not Barber. And even if Barber started he would likely only get you something in the range of 70 yards and maybe a TD.
On Monday night, Washington Redskins back Portis is expected to start. But his right ankle isn't 100 percent and there is no telling when backup Ladell Betts will take over. If you have another option, go for it.
