Start McGahee if he plays?

Postby Sydewinder » Thu Nov 17, 2011 12:16 pm

As my flex? Other option is Greg Little.

For other McGahee owners out there, post other options your exploring besides McGahee and I'll answer who I would start over Willis if he is active tonight.

I have a feeling that I'm starting McGahee if he starts no matter what...but only getting 1.7 last week was rough...

I have a feeling the Jets D is going to force Tebow to throw, I would go with Little

Hmm...interesting perspective. Even more so because I have Tebow also, but am choosing to bench him for Carson Palmer against the Vikings horrid defense this week...

Any concern about Little facing the Jags D, ranked second against opposing WRs?

I disagree with the first reply. Look... The Broncos have allowed Tebow to throw VERY little. The owners don't care for him, and don't want to give him the entire playbook and see what he can do. This team is ALL about running the ball. Tebow is playing in a COLLEGE like offensive system. the JETS D absolutely knows this and CANT WAIT to tee off on Tebow and Pick 6 ALL NIGHT if he goes to the air. Hello... Jets D...There won't be much passing.

Therefore, the majority of Broncos yards tonight will come from the running game.

I too have Mcgahee and am nervous to start him even if they say "he will play". Lance Ball looks to be the best choice I would assume. Likely for Mcgahee to get reinjured or the Broncos will slowly work him back in. That said, Mcgahee is tough as nails, just had surgery and came back the next week for 20 Fantasy pts.

I would wait to see some more info before the game before starting him... I will be waiting as well.

I have MORRIS MORRIS. Just picked him up 5 minutes ago. You should pick him up if available, granted if you dont have a better option. He is going up against the worst Run Def for Fantasy Points Given Up-Carolina. And Stafford banged up, they should run it a lot. expect perhaps 100 yards with Morris.

He gone in my league... With all the RB injuries this year and us having 14 teams, our backs are VERY thin...best options on waivers right now are Lumpkin and Ryan Grant...yuck

I think I'm starting j battle over McGahee this week. Too risky for me. And if he does play the whole game I don't see huge results.
