I dropped him this week for Tyrone Wheatley. God, that's sad.
What do you guys think of McGahee's chances come playoff time? Will Buffalo maybe looking to showcase Henry a little before the off-season to enhance his trade value?

I cut him yesterday for , are you ready for this, Joey Harris.
I had C Brown, Dillon, Staley and S. Davis so I was kind of hurting. Mr Harris rushed for 2 yards on 4 carries, so much for the Joey Harris is starting link.

i like the idea of trading him to mcgahee owners so they can handcuff him...at least maybe you can get something, luckily for me i didnt draft him

IRON CHEF wrote:I blamed Buffalo's anemic offense for Henry's struggles earlier in the year, but I really don't know how to explain it now with McGahee performing. I tend to think its his bad ankle, but he played great on a broken leg before.

Honestly, I still stand by the fact that the McGahee factor was completely overblown in the preseason. McGahee had done nothing all year, it wasn't until Henry was injured that Willis saw action. Luckily for him, he took advantage of the opportunity and should be valuable the rest of the year.



I totally agree here. Henry got injured early in the season and it really limited his performance. It doesn't help that Bledsoe was one of the most ineffective quarterbacks in the league en route to their 0 and whatever losing streak to open the season. Hand Henry the ball 37 times against the Jet's on Sunday and there is no doubt that he puts up 100+ and a TD. Obviously he is not the starter at this point, but if he gets a chance to play again he will be a valuable player.

Mcgahee was a backup RB at the beginning of the season and he got lucky enough to get a chance to start. He has performed very well so far in the season, but I think it's still premature to consider him a better back than Travis Henry. I'm not sure that it's time to throw Henry in the trash bin this early in the season, just like I wouldn't throw Mcgahee to the curb if Henry was still starting.

The Bill's have one of the best late season schedules in the NFL for a RB and I think you need to hang onto Henry if you have a bench spot open.

I agree with kensat, and more importantly it is too difficult to completely igrnore two monster seasons that are worthy of the title "stud". Howver, mcgaheee will likely keep the role unless he gets injured, so henry won't have too much value this year. But, I would not rule out the possibility that at some point down the stretch, Henry starts to get more carries since they will want to deal him next year, and he is going to have to prove himself to the other teams that will be looking for a future back late in the season. The fact reamins, the bills are a running team, and if they think mcgahee is as good as he is, then they can still give him 25 carries a game and get what they want out of him, while giving henry another 10+ and bolstering his value (which i suppose could lower his value too, but not likely). Nonetheless, if you are in a keeper league, you damn well better hang onto him because there are about 10 teams that need a running back next year, and not many of the FA's are better than travis henry.
