Le'ron McClain - viable waiver wire pick up?

Postby JimiRayThunderaxe » Tue Sep 20, 2011 5:38 pm

McClain is 26 years old, rushed for 1,000 yards just three years ago and the Chiefs have, what?, 34 year old 3.4 yards per carry Thomas Jones and Reggie-Bush-Light-McCluster as their other options? Cassel can't hit the ocean from a boat.
He could arguably be their best offensive weapon.

Problems: As witnessed with J Charles, Hailey is one stubborn HC when it comes to dividing up carries among RBs regardless of talent. Another issue is who will be the lead blocker for McClain?

Still, if you were the head coach in KC, wouldn't you be tempted to give the rock to McClain?

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Would it be worth dropping, say, Scott Chandler?

McCluster is a glorified WR and Thomas Jones is 50 years old?

McClain told the press today that nothing has changed in this week's game plan and he has been practicing in his normal role as a lead blocker.

Haley is one stubborn SOB.

Thank the fantasy gods I have San Diego's D this week.
