Willis McGahee reverts back to unusable for fantasy owners

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

A week after his first touchdown of 2013, the Browns running back was quiet Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Willis McGahee was quiet Sunday, rushing for only 37 yards on ten carries, as the Browns lost to the Detroit Lions 31-17. McGahee did add two receiving yards on a single reception.

A week after McGahee had 72 yards and a touchdown against the Bills, the running back slid back Sunday, though his 3.7 yards per carry was his best mark of the season.

Fantasy impact: The Browns looked to running back Chris Ogbonnaya more than expected in this game, giving him five carriers for 24 yards and seven receptions for 61 yards and a score, taking some of the attention McGahee's fantasy owners might have expected him to get.

It looked like McGahee was showing signs of fantasy relevance in that Bills game, but this week shows he's not really viable yet. He's a fine if-you're-desperate type of play, with bye weeks and injuries in the mix, but anyone relying on McGahee going forward is probably in a bad state.
