  Browns | Willis McGahee probable    Fri Dec 27, 04:33 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Footballguys view: McGahee should play, but fantasy owners don't care. We'd like to see more from Edwin Baker. The young back has been impressing in a limited role over the last two weeks. Give him more touches to see if he can flash for next season is the best call in a meaningless game for the Browns.

Footballguys view: Well the Browns need all the help they can get but McGahee won't be a help to fantasy owners and you can bet he won't be a big part of the team next year.

  Browns | Willis McGahee expects to return    Tue Dec 17, 02:19 PM

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.

Footballguys view: This just complicates the Browns backfield even further. We thought more of Edwin Baker could be on the menu based on his play in Week 15. Instead, it sounds like McGahee, Baker and "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya could all three have some sort of role this week. Avoid the situation if at all possible in your fantasy championship.

  Browns | Week 15 Inactives    Sun Dec 15, 11:34 AM

The Cleveland Browns have declared QB Alex Tanney, TE Andre P. Smith, TE Keavon Milton, OT Martin Wallace, OT Reid Fragel, RB Willis McGahee inactive for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Chris Ogbonnaya gets the start against the abysmal Bears run defense. He is a high risk (fumble could get him pulled a la Stevan Ridley because of his recent problems) high reward play as a flex or desperation RB2.

  Browns | Willis McGahee ruled out    Fri Dec 13, 03:05 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya should be a fine RB2 play as long as he doesn't fumble and get benched a la Stevan Ridley. The Bears run defense is far and away the worst in the league.

  Browns | Willis McGahee sitting    Fri Dec 13, 11:31 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker will split the work in the backfield this week. They are longshots, but the Bears run defense has been so bad that it won't be shocking if either or both have a nice stat line. They are terrific "what the heck flex" plays.

  Browns | Willis McGahee sits out    Thu Dec 12, 06:24 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Have an alternative ready, if for some reason you had to have McGahee in your lineup. "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya is an alternative if you need an RB3.

  Browns | Not sure if Willis McGahee's season is over    Thu Dec 12, 10:12 AM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rod Chudzinski said he's not sure if RB Willis McGahee's (concussion) season is over. He may have lost consciousness when he suffered his concussion.

Footballguys view: Not that you could confidently start McGahee anyway, but have an alternative ready. At worst, you might get a start out of Chris Ogbonnaya, who could fill in as an on RB3.

  Browns | Willis McGahee does not practice    Wed Dec 11, 06:00 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can't really rely on McGahee anyway (at least you shoudn't). The team may have to start "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya if McGahee can't play in Week 15.

  Browns | Willis McGahee sits    Wed Dec 11, 10:57 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: There's better options out there. Fantasy owners need to be ready with those other options in case McGahee is not cleared this week. If McGahee is shut down then we'd see Chris Ogbonnaya as the team's starter.

  Browns | Willis McGahee has concussion    Mon Dec 9, 01:06 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said RB Willis McGahee (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 14 game.

Footballguys view: McGahee will have to pass the NFL's protocol for dealing with concussions before he can return to the field. If McGahee can't play against the Bears in Week 15 then we'll likely see "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya as the starter.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: McGahee has plodded his way back into RB3/flex range for fantasy owners. He's not going to do much with the carries he gets, but McGahee is a compiler who can score touchdowns.

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

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: It would be an important note if McGahee was actually doing something on the football field. We like "Silent G" Chris Ogbonnaya as a better fantasy start than McGahee this week against the Steelers.

  Browns | Chris Ogbonnaya to see more carries    Fri Nov 8, 10:58 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya is a sneaky waiver wire add on his bye. He has been involved as a receiver and in the red zone, so adding more carries could make him an RB2 play in PPR leagues. The Browns offense looks better than expected in the passing game with Jason Campbell, which should loosen things up for the running game if the trend continues.

  Browns | More carries for Chris Ogbonnaya?     Tue Nov 5, 02:36 PM

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

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in need of running back help should perk up here. Willis McGahee is just not getting it done. Ogbonnaya is a weapon who can contribute as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial in case we do see more carries for him going forward.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) fully practiced Friday, Nov. 1, and is probable for Week 9.

Footballguys view: McGahee continues to be largely a flex play especially against the Baltimore Ravens. Even with a depleted defense, running has been hard against Baltimore so check your expectations.

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

Footballguys view: Nothing to worry about here, though you can worry a little about his production against the Baltimore Ravens. He's no more than a desperation flex player in most weeks.

  Browns | Willis McGahee misses practice    Thu Oct 17, 05:55 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: Chris Ogbonnaya should be ready to go post-concussion and they'll need him if McGahee is out. This is generally an RBBC but one where McGahee had some value. If he's hurt this could knock what little value he had to the ground.

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

Footballguys view: He was already familiar with the offense, which is why they stuck him in there right away. You should still handle him with care as he's only just getting back into game shape and the Cleveland Browns haven't exactly been doing well running the ball with their running backs.

  Browns | Willis McGahee to play    Fri Sep 20, 08:39 AM

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.

Footballguys view: McGahee is still only a desperation play on the road at Minnesota with Brian Hoyer at quarterback. Going forward, he is a flex play with RB2 upside in good matchups, but McGahee is not worth a big chunk of your free agent bidding budget.
