Willis McGahee Fantasy Recap: Broncos RB Bounces Back From Hand Injury

The Denver Broncos came into Oakland on Sunday and stunned the Raiders to climb to within a game of first place in the suddenly wild AFC West. Tim Tebow will get much of the praise, but Willis McGahee was the man who took care of business Sunday afternoon. McGahee finished the game with 163 rushing yards and two touchdowns, leading all NFL running backs in both categories.

McGahee fractured a bone in his hand a few weeks back and sat out last week's game against Detroit. He had a plate and some pins inserted in his ball carrying hand, but that didn't seem to be an issue for him. McGahee has had a resurgent 2011 season and he looks to be back on track after the hand injury.

The Broncos travel to Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs this coming week and he should be good to go once again. Given Tebow's passing struggles, they will likely rely heavily on the rushing attack in what should be a raucous Arrowhead Stadium.
