Willis McGahee is listed as probable for Sunday's game between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Willis McGahee is probable for Sunday's game between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders, according to the Broncos' official site. McGahee suffered a ribs injury during last week's game against the Houston Texans and was limited in practice Wednesday. He was able to practice fully on Thursday and Friday, however.

Fantasy Impact: McGahee should be fine to start Sunday against the Raiders. He is by far the Broncos' most effective runner at the moment, and doesn't seem to be in any danger of losing carries to Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman or Knowshon Moreno. If McGahee sits, expect that trio of running backs to rotate in and out of Denver's backfield. Until then, McGahee will shoulder the load in the running game, making him a solid RB2/Flex play in standard fantasy leagues.
