After a hamstring injury limited Willis McGahee's play against the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets, the Denver Broncos running back got back into the thick of things with a strong performance against the San Diego Chargers. He had 23 carries for 117 yards. Though he didn't score any touchdowns, averaging 5.1 yards per carry certainly shows that McGahee is still up to the task of getting hit and staying up after initial contact.
NumberFire, however, is conservative in its initial projection of McGahee this week. He's projected to have 14 carries for 59 yards. He also had three receptions for 24 yards. However, he is projected for zero touchdowns (0.48, but we're rounding all these numbers).
The Vikings do have a good run defense, which could limit McGahee's value, but since the team will need to prepare for both McGahee and Tim Tebow, it could provide for some interesting situations.
