Willis McGahee practiced in full pads Wednesday for the Denver Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Willis McGahee practiced in full pads for the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, Andrew Mason of Mile High Sports reports. McGahee suffered a ribs injury during Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, and had to leave the game after rushing for just 36 yards on 12 carries.

Fantasy Impact: With McGahee a full participant in practice, odds look better that the Broncos won't have to rely on a committee of Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. McGahee has been productive when he has been on the field. In Week 2 he rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. He is the only proven commodity in the Broncos' backfield, making him a good RB2/Flex play in standard fantasy leagues most weeks.
