Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 11: Willis McGahee, Lance Ball Risky Leading Up To Thursday Game

Fantasy football owners will need to make a tough decision as game time approaches between the Denver Broncos and the New York Jets. Running back Willis McGahee is expected to start--unless, of course, he doesn't look right when he takes warmups. The Broncos beat writers weren't that optimistic before Thursday afternoon. They called him a game time decision and stated that warmups would determine if he goes. While the two positions are somewhat similar, the latest report is the far more optimistic of the two.

This could spell bad news for Lance Ball, who was in line for the start. Ball will still get some carries if McGahee starts, but don't expect him a repeat of his 30-carry, 96-yard performance last week. The Broncos run the ball a lot, but not that much. He'll be a decent flex option, but not much else with McGahee getting the lion's share of the carries.

In the end, if you have McGahee START him. He's the best running back on the team and has proven his fantasy worth even while injured (as seen with his broken hand).
