Denver Broncos running back Willis McGahee missed practice on Wednesday with a rib injury, per Levi Damien. The Broncos have had a rocky start to the season, but could steal a big division win against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4. McGahee's status is still unknown but don't be surprised if he's in the lineup on Sunday.
Fantasy Analysis: The Denver Broncos have displayed a much more balanced attack than we thought they would, after signing Peyton Manning in the offseason. McGahee has assumed his role as the No. 1 back in that offense, and benefits from Manning's presence. When healthy, McGahee is a great flex option, despite the team's rocky start to 2012. McGahee is a sturdy, savvy veteran back in an offense that's capable of production. If McGahee is good to go this weekend, he is worth a start against Oakland Raiders.
