Willis McGahee racks up fantasy points against Raiders

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Willis McGahee found plenty of room to run against Oakland. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Raiders could not find an answer for Willis McGahee in Week 4. Denver's leading rusher finished with 19 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown, also adding six receptions for another 23 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Despite initially looking like a question mark for Week 4, McGahee proved his rib injury wasn't holding him back as he ran all over the Raiders. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry while Ronnie Hillman averaged just 3.1 yards on 10 touches. McGahee isn't going anywhere right now, so you shouldn't have a problem starting him every week. He'll take on some weaker run defenses in the coming weeks, and his fantasy owners will want to make sure they take advantage of those matchups.
