Willis McGahee, Den, RB (78-percent started)
Matchup: vs. SD
Outside his 155-total yard, 1-TD thrashing of New Orleans in Week 8, the elderly rusher has started to develop a noticeable crust. Against San Diego, Cincinnati and exploitable Carolina, he totaled a mere 3.2 yards per carry, 85.6 total yards per game and accounted for zero touchdowns. Considering his advanced age, slumping production and troublesome case of fumblitis — he's lost four of five fumbles this year — one has to wonder if McGahee's fantasy value is abruptly grinding to a halt. Still, he has the faith of the coaching staff and continues to dominate snaps over rookie backup Ronnie Hillman. However, if another ball squirts free from his grasp, the tables could definitely turn. Four weeks ago in his first meeting against the Chargers, the rusher proved useful tallying 98 yards on 21 touches. Provided he squeezes the rock, another 18-22 touches are on tap in the rematch, but spectacular numbers could be farfetched. Since Week 6, Trent Richardson is the only RB to rack at least 12 fantasy points against the Bolts. And on the season they've allowed a very modest 3.7 yards per carry to RBs. Because of the sizable workload, McGahee remains a suitable RB2 in a hellish bye week for backs, but don't bank on Mile High numbers.
