Sun, 21 Nov 2010 08:51:46 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis (groin) will start in Week 11 with RB Ryan Torain (hamstring) inactive, reports Redskins.com.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Portis is starting, Keiland Williams is still probably the safer bet to start in most league types, especially point-per-reception leagues. Portis' start doesn't mean he'll carry the bulk of the workload, and they'll probably have closer to an even split of the touches.
