Go there for the full read.


I'm not feeling this. They are similar runners stylistically and neither can block. Defenses already have plenty of trouble when there's one good rb on the field to decide whether to focus on stopping the run or the pass.

I would take him this year if you have Henry as well. He is an earlier round pick up in a dynasty or keeper league then in a seasonal redraft league. For this year it all depends on how much time on the field he is given and at this point noone knows the answer to that.


He mayb be waiting for a much longer time than barlow because travis henry is no where near 30... I think Willis we be just specifically a 3rd down back..

Right, so he's really only worth handcuffing to Henry.

In order:
DeShaun Foster
Chris Brown
Maurice Morris
Najeh Davenport

If they aren't on that list, they probably aren't worth much.


Id add larry johnson to that list, holmes is always an injury risk, and he will be gone in a few years and he is the future. That is, if its a dynasty league anyways, if its a redraft league id pick him up in last round or 2 or get him off WW. Just my 2 cents

I've read that Mularkey wants to use both of them on the field at the same time... I don't know how that would work, unless Bledsoe has been hiding some mobility all these years - he'd get killed more than usual with even less blockers protecting him...

I won't bash McGahee much until I see him in pre-season. I've done enough early (maybe) unwarranted bashing of him to last all of next season if need-be. He looked good in college, but is coming back from an injury and I just don't think Henry deserves to be put in this situation... If he were on any other team, I'd probably be spouting the same crap all of the Buffalo homers have been saying... "McGahee is the next Portis," etc.

Allright... I agree in principal that an unproven talent is not worth much. BUT... I am in Toronto and get Buff tv and radio. The coaches and players are really high on this guy. Complete recovery is what they are saying. Who knows for sure...right?

IS McGahee worth Krob in a straight up trade? Forget our rosters... is the deal equal or really lopsided?

I know...second part is in the wrong forum...but I had to ask.
