Willis McGahee injury update: RB probable, will play for fantasy owners

The Browns running back is listed as probable and will suit up for Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Willis McGahee (knee) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 14 game against the New England Patriots. His knee issue isn't considered serious and he isn't in any danger of missing time this week.

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year-old back has been far from a fantasy asset this season. However, he did manage to provide owners with some reasonable production last week, rushing for 57 yards and a touchdown and chipping in two catches for 14 yards. Other than last week's performance, McGahee has one other touchdown on the year, hasn't topped more than 72 yards rushing in a single game, has had a wildly inconsistent amount of carries and has seven total catches on the year. Last week's moderate production was a nice surprise, but there weren't likely too many owners who had him in their starting lineups to begin with.

McGahee doesn't have a particularly imposing matchup in the Patriots. However, there still isn't much of a reason to have faith in the 10-year veteran. He has slightly more value in standard leagues than PPR due to his goal-line carries, but is an extremely weak flex play.
