Willis McGahee Fantasy Projection: Denver Broncos RB Projected As No. 18 Back

Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee is looking for his seventh 100-yard plus rushing game when he faces the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon. The Patriots defense allows slightly over 107 yards per game, good for a top 15 rush defense, which makes it no surprise that McGahee is projected for a conservative day.

NumberFire sees McGahee with 11 carries for 50 yards, which is similar to last week's performance of 17 carries for 34 yards against the Chicago Bears. However, McGahee's total points projection is for 10.52 since he has three receptions for 30 yards. While nothing exciting in that regard, McGahee might very well be a nice target for Tebow to look for throughout the day. If his normal receivers still have a case of the dropsies, Tebow might want to look to McGahee to dump the ball off to on passing plays.
