2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Willis McGahee was supposed to be a complimentary back to Knowshon Moreno last season, but seized the starting spot and looked to have a new life in those legs


(+) Averaged 4.8 yards per carry last season, the second highest mark of his career (previous high was 5.0 in 2009 with minimal carries)


(+) Definitely has the inside track on the starting job with the team having lost faith in Moreno and rookie Ronnie Hillman not quite ready


(+) Should get most of the Red Zone carries and usually excels in the role


(+) Has 64 total TDs in 120 games (79 starts), which comes to over eight TDs per 16-game season


(+) Had seven 100-yard games in 2011


(+) Running backs in a Manning-led offense usually put up great numbers and can expect to get the ball both on the ground and through the air…


(–) …however, he hasn’t had more than 15 catches in a single season since 2008


(–)At 31-years old (in October), Willis isn’t really a premier back anymore so you can’t expect too much out of him


(–) The offense should quite be a bit more wide open this season with Manning at the helm…meaning McGahee’s number of carries could suffer

Featured Pieces

Despite his current RB2 status on the Ravens, McGahee has had himself quite a career thus far.  6,779 total yards (5,787 rushing) and 53 total TDs (50 rushing) over the course of his 6-year career are numbers any running back would be happy with.


It's amazing to think of how good he might have been if not for this fateful play:

Injury Report

Green

Despite dealing with various injuries in the past (including, of course, that blown-out knee), McGahee has missed just 6 games in his 6-year career and none in 2009

McGahee not a fan of the Muppets

"We have an unusual situation, we’re making the best out of it," said Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner about the bevy of backs. "McGahee’s giving us plays, Ogbonnaya’s giving us plays. We’ve got Bobby giving us some plays. Now we’re going to use Fozzy (Whittaker) a little bit and see how he does. No question it’s a group effort."

Whittaker, claimed off waivers by the Browns two weeks ago, will take his turn on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Whittaker, released by the San Diego Chargers, was undrafted when he signed with the Arizona Cardinals last season. His brief career has been limited to special teams, but that should change on Sunday.

"The coaches told me to be ready for whatever," Whittaker said. "There's a couple of situations where I may get into the game. Obviously it's not for certain I'll get in, but whenever my number's called, I'll be ready and make sure I'm focused in on everything that's going on."


Pyro's take: Willis has been the man leading the backfield since the Browns traded Trent Richardson, but he is going to lose some carries to Fozzy Whittaker…Wacka Wacka Wacka!!!

The simple truth here is that there is not one running back on the Browns that should be in your starting fantasy lineup this season. Brandon Weeden has not been consistent enough to take pressure off the running game, and the offensive line has been poor at opening holes. There is no fantasy savior to run the ball for the Browns, not even Fozzy Bear.

Willis McGahee taking physical with the Browns

McGahee will take a physical with the Browns and if he passes, the team will sign him, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

As of Wednesday, the only running back currently on the Browns roster is second-year player Bobby Rainey. The 26-year-old running back served as the Browns kick returner in Weeks 1 and 2, but has never recorded an offensive carry in an NFL game.

McGahee ran for 731 yards and four touchdowns in nine starts for the Broncos last season.

Pyro's take: I have absolutely no clue as to what these fools are doing with Browns, but it is a complete dismantle. McGahee is not going to add any real fantasy value, while he struggles with the rest of the Cleveland offense. The Browns are starting Brian Hoyer at quarterback this week and Bobby Rainey at running back with McGahee...Oy vey!!!

Nothing McGahee can do about it

With the way Ravens running back Ray Rice has been playing, the coaches don't see a reason to ever take him off the field.
“It’s hard to refute with what Ray’s done,” coach John Harbaugh said. “You look at that game on offense, Ray was the guy making the plays. So, it’s pretty hard to take him off the field when he’s making the plays. I don’t think it has anything to do with Willis as much as it has to do with the way Ray’s playing.”


Pyro's take: Ray has had 20+ touches four games in a row now while fellow RB Willis McGahee has had 12 touches in those four games combined. Basically, there is no RBBC in Baltimore, and Rice has now become a high-end RB2, if not a low-end RB1 play for your fantasy football team.

As expected, McGahee will start season as backup

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice said that he will start in the backfield against the Chiefs on Sunday. Rice had been starting ahead of fellow RB Willis McGahee all preseason as well.

Pyro's take: This isn't what you would call a shocker, as the writing has been all over the wall for this one for quite some time now. McGahee is an injury-prone headcase, and LeRon McClain has been moved back to the FB position. The doors are wide open for Rice to become a stud this year and should be drafted and used as a high upside RB2 on your team.

Willis McGahee has improved attitude

Baltimore Ravens RB Willis McGahee, known for his questionable work ethic, injury-prone history and dodgy attitude, has really impressed RB coach Wilbert Montgomery during training camp. "“We’ve got a smarter Willis McGahee, more of a student of the game with a good work ethic."

Pyro's take: While this may not seem like much, this is actually high praise for McGahee. Unfortunately, he's still second behind Ray Rice on the depth chart, but he'll see his fair share of carries as the Ravens use a RBBC system.

Willis McGahee to be part of RBBC

Cam Cameron, the Baltimore Ravens OC, said that he will be using a, "running back by committee. You could see all three of them in the game at the same time. You could see any combination of the two."

Pyro's take: With his injury problems and relatively old age, McGahee will take a back seat to Rice in this system. McGahee will still get a decent amount of carries, but Rice will get the majority of them and McClain will be used on short-yardage and goal-line situations.

Willis McGahee 100 percent

McGahee, the veteran RB for the Baltimore Ravens, was put on the active/PUP list for the start of training camp but was activated on July 30.

Pyro's take: The oft-injured RB underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason for 34th time and the Ravens were just monitoring its progress. It looks healthy and he's ready to return to full training.

Willis McGahee to backup

The Baltimore Ravens RB, coming off knee surgery, said he expects to enter training camp as the backup to second-year RB Ray Rice.

Pyro's take: McGahee said, "it's not how you start but how you finish" but we don't expect McGahee to even get the chance to start. He's too fragile and he's getting old. His carries will diminish significantly this year.
