Redskins | Might rotate RBs with Betts in Week 10

Sun, 15 Nov 2009 09:19:24 -0800

The NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports Washington Redskins RB Ladell Betts (ankle) will start in Week 10 in place of RB Clinton Portis (concussion), but Betts still isn't 100 percent. The Redskins may rotate other backs with Betts to keep him fresh. Head coach Jim Zorn said Friday, Nov. 13, RBs Rock Cartwright and Quinton Ganther could be used in a committee approach this week against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: The reality is that the Redskins will use Betts as much as they can. Cartwright might serve as the goal line back and vulture an opportunity or two, but neither of the backups is a fantasy play or serves as reason to bench Betts. Betts is a solid flex play this week, at least in PPR leagues.

Fri, 21 Aug 2009 14:06:39 -0700

Jason Reid, of The Washington Post, reports Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis should, in theory, be able to remain energized from start to finish this year because he will have less plays with RB Ladell Betts taking over as the team's third-down back.
