Better second half.. Westbrook or McGahee

Actual rushing yards its not even close. Mcgahee has doubled his with 856 to Westbrooks 414. So like we have all said with Mcnabb down Westbrook will get more carries but his recieving yards should go way down. Defesnes can now stack the box not having to worry about Mcnabb slinging it out or Owens gettting behind them deep.

I would much rather have Willis for this second half ;-D

Based on the first game, you were dead wrong.

He had about the same amount of carries that he's had all season and he had about the same receiving yardage that he's had all season.

By the way, why in the world would defenses stack the box against a team that throws it 70% of the time? Doesn't make any sense to me.

RD 1 goes to Westbrook.

Westbrook - 66 rushing and 57 receiving = 11 points standard scoring

McGahee - 39 rushing and 2 receiving = 3 points standard scoring

I think this shows the difference in the two. Westbrook will consistently get you 10 points with a TD here and there.

McGahee will get you inconsistent numbers. This week he doesn't even get 40 yards but next week he may go for 100 and 2 TD's

I'm willing to bet that Westbrook matches him the rest of the year and provides more consistency to fantasy owners.

I bet that fool is doing pretty well with Westbrook.

Round 1

Westbrook - 66 rushing and 57 receiving = 11 points standard scoring

McGahee - 39 rushing and 2 receiving = 3 points standard scoring

Round 2

Westbrook - 117 rushing and 11 receiving = 18 points standard scoring

McGahee - 53 rushing and 0 receiving = 5 points standard scoring

Total points through 2 rounds

Westbrook - 29

McGahee - 8

Everyone still so sure about McGahee being clearly better??

Well, Westbrook is still a little undervalued, and McGahee overvalued. In the end, they'll probably finish within 2 ranks of each other, which one ends up better is a lot more of a coinflip than most would think.

Yea, I thought so too but now I am beginning to wonder about McGahee. That's 3 stinkers in a row.

It's funny how us Fantasy players can be blinded by a big back with talent over a smaller versatile guy.

Yea damn that size and talent combo it's a real killer.
If you watch the Bills it is not McGahee's fault, the offensive line looks atrocious and has a lot of trouble handling talented defensive linemen and has gotten worse since the season began. Add to that McGahee probably has at least 300 yards called back on unecessary holding penalties this year and his o-line is doing him a disservice.

Thats why situation is just as important if not more important then actual skill for a RB.

Mcgahee has skill but the bills offense is horrible so he just can't do much in that offense.

I think the last 2 weeks show just how much talent Westy has because the philly offense is pretty bad right now with no Mcnabb, no Owens, and 3 Offensive linemen out.
