Willis McGahee is "day to day" with a ribs injury suffered Sunday, according to Broncos head coach John Fox. We break down the fantasy implications.

Willis McGahee is "day to day" after leaving Sunday's game between the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans with a ribs injury, according to head coach John Fox. McGahee had 12 carries for 36 yards and one catch for six yards before leaving.

Fantasy Impact: If McGahee can't go this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, expect a timeshare at running back among Knowshon Moreno, Lance Ball and rookie Ronnie Hillman. None of the three can be considered a viable starting option in standard fantasy leagues unless one emerges as a feature back. McGahee has been carrying the load for Denver this season. He had 22 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2.
