Do you see any McGahees out there for 2012?

Postby Shark1225 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 6:03 pm

Someone past there prime yet can make a very solid contribution. Last year I picked up Mcgahee late and he became quite valuable. Not sure how late he'll go but Tony Gonzalez I see as one of those "don't count me out yet" players.

My 2 cents is that Gonzalez is about done. He faded down the stretch last season as Julio Jones emerged and Roddy White got over his early season slump. He's already lost at least a step, but his savvy veteran receiving skills kept him relevant the past few years. I just don't see much upside, even as ATL goes to more of a passing attack.

As for the next McGahee? I have a few guesses, but I play in too many leagues with too many people on this board for me to give out those names. Sorry.

Does Mike Goodson count when Darren Mcfadden has his annual injury spell? He's only 25 so I guess not.

Peyton Hillis if Charles goes down again will be a stud, but he's only 26.

Michael Bush on the Bears if Forte pulls up lame after holding out all summer, but he had a pretty rock solid year last year so he probably doesn't count. He's only 27 too.


Ronnie Brown with Ryan Mathews' injury history seems like the only obvious name to me, although Curtis Brinkley might be a better talent at this point.

Joe Addai and Brandon Jacobs have way too many mouths to feed in their backfields for me to suggest them.

This made me laugh. I'll throw my name out there anyway. I like Reggie Wayne to vastly outperform his ADP and be a solid WR#2

Oh I thought we were just talking RBs for some reason...

Well, yeah I like Reggie Wayne in a bounce back. With Garcon gone and a MAJOR upgrade at QB and a new contract, he should dominate targets. I'm thinking a Steve Smith type resurgence isn't out of the question.
