2014 Outlook
Having been signed by the Broncos prior to last season to supplement Knowshon Moreno, nobody can say that McGahee did not exceed expectations in his first year in Denver. Rather than supplement Moreno, he supplanted him and by seasonís end had topped 1,000 rushing yards for the first time since 2007, his first season with the Ravens. McGahee finished the year with 1,199 rushing yards, 51 receiving yards and five total touchdowns. While you could make the argument that Tim Tebow pilfered some touchdowns from McGahee, you could make an equaling compelling argument that Tebowís presence necessitated a run-first philosophy and also forced opposing defenses to account for him in the running game. Either way, itís all moot for 2012 with Tebow having been jettisoned to the Jets and Peyton Manning in town to lead a far more heavily passed based offense. Look no further than the Colts rushing production during the 2008-2010 seasons as the team finished 29th, 32nd and 31st in rushing yards. On the plus side, McGahee is clearly the Broncos best short yardage back and there doesnít appear to be a player on the roster capable of stealing his starting position by opening day but his ability as a receiver has steadily eroded over time as evidenced by his 41 receptions over the past three seasons. Basically, his fantasy value will come as a rusher so you need to believe that the teamís offense will generate enough red zone touches and 4th quarter clock eating work if you want to draft him as a starter. He will likely be chosen as a low end RB2 but I would be more comfortable grabbing him as my RB3.
