Wed, 18 Dec 2013 13:29:16 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, McGahee should play against the New York Jets this weekend. It's a weak matchup. Leave McGahee to your bench with all the marbles on the line in Week 16.

Browns | Willis McGahee expects to return

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 11:19:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) said he's feeling "pretty good" and expects to return in Week 16 after being inactive in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee must first pass all of his concussion tests this week in order to play, so it's no sure thing just yet. The Browns could use Chris Ogbonnaya plenty to spell McGahee, too. McGahee is a weak play versus the New York Jets and should probably be on your bench.

Browns | Willis McGahee ruled out

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 12:05:04 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Chicago Bears. RB Chris Ogbonnaya will receive the majority of the workload in his place, with RB Fozzy Whittaker also seeing some work in relief.

Fantasy Tip: Ogbonnaya isn't a bad flex option, since he's going up against one of the worst rush defenses in the league, even though they may be improving a bit.

Browns | Willis McGahee probable

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 11:42:30 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee's 2.8 yards per carry mark this year just goes to show that he doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank. However, he's still the best option the Browns have in the backfield. The fact that he returned to double-digit carries last week is a positive. Consider him a flex play, at best, in deeper leagues.

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 15:21:59 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as probable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee likely will still be the team's starting running back, but owners probably have better options to start at running back.

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:46:11 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) was able to practice fully Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee is likely to start in the Week 13 game, but he is only worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 11:16:53 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: You've got to be extremely desperate to be starting McGahee these days. If he's on your roster, he's probably just clogging it up.

Browns | Willis McGahee practices in full

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 15:04:54 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee is virtually useless this year, averaging less than three yards per carry. If you're starting him, you better be extremely desperate. He's better left on the waiver wire.

Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya to see more carries

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 07:58:03 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya will start receiving more carries and dip into RB Willis McGahee's workload. McGahee is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry in 100 rushes.

Browns | More carries for Chris Ogbonnaya?

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 11:36:12 -0800

Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said RB Chris Ogbonnaya could start to receive more carries.

Fantasy Tip: Willis McGahee is still listed as the No. 1, but he's clearly running out of steam and has an extremely limited ceiling. Ogbonnaya has more upside and should be considered the more attractive running back in this backfield.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee looks to be good to go for the team's Week 9 game. Get him into your lineups as you normally would.

Browns | Willis McGahee gets the day off from practice

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 10:08:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knees) is getting the day off from practice Thursday, Oct. 31, to rest his knees.

Fantasy Tip: Even with the day off from practice, it is likely that McGahee will be good to go in Week 9. You have to be down to some pretty thin options at running back to consider starting McGahee these days. Avoid him if you can.

Browns | Wednesday practice report

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 14:11:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Quentin Groves (ankle) and DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. RB Willis McGahee (knee), RB Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs), CB Christopher Owens (finger) and LB Jabaal Sheard (wrist) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Expect both McGahee and Ogbonnaya to suit up in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, both running backs are weak fantasy plays, especially against a tough Ravens run defense. McGahee's age is starting to show, and Fozzy Whittaker's opportunities are going up.

Browns | Willis McGahee probable

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 12:21:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: On paper, the matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs is a bad one. It'll be tough to find running room for McGahee, making him a very weak starting option in Week 8.

Browns | Willis McGahee misses practice

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 14:55:33 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 17. The team was just giving McGahee a day off from practice to rest his surgically repaired knee, and he rode a bike and worked on the side during drills. Cleveland expects him to play in Week 7 versus the Green Bay Packers, but he'll likely be on the injury report for the rest of the year. "We have an unusual situation, and we're making the best out of it," offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. "McGahee is giving us plays. Ogbonnaya is giving us plays. Bobby's giving us some plays. Now we're going to use Fozzy a little bit and see how he does. No question it's a group effort."

Fantasy Tip: McGahee will continue to see the majority of touches in this backfield if he can stay healthy. That counts for something. However, he's on the wrong side of 30 and isn't much more than a flex play most weeks.

Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya suffered concussion

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 10:08:04 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 5 game Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Ogbonnaya will have over a week to prepare and pass concussion tests leading up to Week 6. Willis McGahee is clearly the back to own in Cleveland, though.

Browns | Willis McGahee expects improvement

Thu, 26 Sep 2013 08:33:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee expects improved performance in Week 4 after his first full week of practice with the team.

Fantasy Tip: He has very little competition and should be owned in most leagues.

Browns | Willis McGahee ineffective

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 08:03:00 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee rushed eight times for 9 yards in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: No other running back had more than four carries. McGahee's workload should increase with a full week of practice. However, the impact he can have is in question. He's a bye-week fill-in right now.

Browns | Willis McGahee in great shape

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 10:16:57 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee is reportedly in great shape after passing physicals with three separate teams.

Fantasy Tip: He may be healthy, but his place in a lackluster offense won't give him a ton of value. He should be owned in deep leagues, but starting him this week would be a mistake. Chris Ogbonnaya will likely be the better play against the Minnesota Vikings.

Browns | Willis McGahee to play

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 05:39:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee will play in Week 3. The team's offense is similar to the one he was involved in with the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: We can't speculate how many touches he'll receive, but it's hard to imagine him getting 20 or more without a training camp.
