Free agent Willis McGahee is not expected to be re-signed by the Browns.
We'd be surprised if McGahee got signed by anyone. He'll turn 33 in October and is coming off a season that saw him rush 138 times for 377 yards (2.73 YPC) with two touchdowns. The Browns desperately need to upgrade on in-house options Edwin Baker, Dion Lewis and Chris Ogbonnaya. Thu, Feb 20, 2014 10:26:00 AM

Free agent Willis McGahee said he wants to play four more years.

In related news, we want an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii with Mila Kunis. Neither fantasy is happening. McGahee was scraped off the street by the desperate Browns last season, rushing 138 times for a pathetic 377 yards (2.73 YPC) with two touchdowns. He'll turn 33 in October and will be lucky to get one more cup of coffee in the NFL. The Browns desperately need to add backfield talent, where new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will be installing his zone-blocking scheme. Free agent Ben Tate makes plenty of sense.

Willis McGahee was held without a touch in Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

McGahee closes out 2013 by failing to touch the ball in either of Cleveland's final two games. McGahee has had a long and productive career, but looked out of gas this season, wheezing to 2.7 yards per carry across 138 totes. He caught only eight passes in 13 games. Going on 33, McGahee is unlikely to generate any interest on the open market before training camp injuries start piling up, and even then his phone might not ring.

Willis McGahee didn't register a single offensive touch in Week 16 against the Jets.

McGahee was active but played maybe one snap. Edwin Baker got the start and handled much of the work. Chris Ogbonnaya received two touches as the backup. McGahee was in on a short-yardage play, but the Browns chose to pass. Baker is the Browns' new lead back and will handle the work in Week 17 at Pittsburgh.

Willis McGahee (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 16.

McGahee's return makes Cleveland's backfield hands-off in Week 16 fantasy lineup decisions. There's simply no telling who will get carries and touches.

Willis McGahee said he wants to play four more years.

"That would give me 15 years," McGahee said. "This would come from a guy who was never supposed to play again. My back has always been against the wall." McGahee, of course, is referencing the catastrophic knee injury he suffered while in college. At 32 years old, he's averaged a pitiful 2.7 YPC this season and didn't have a job until Week 3. McGahee is set to become a free agent again. These last two games very well could be it for him. McGahee sits in the No. 37 spot on the all-time rushing list with 8,474 career yards.

Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) remained limited on Thursday.

McGahee is going to suit up against the Jets' stout run defense, but could be in an early-down timeshare with Edwin Baker, whom the Browns appear keen to evaluate. McGahee should be nowhere near championship-week lineups.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 04:42:00 PM

Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

McGahee is on track to play this week, but his starting role is in doubt. He'll likely be returning to a committee with Edwin Baker and Chris Ogbonnaya if active in Week 16 against the Jets.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Willis McGahee (concussion) has been cleared to practice and play in Sunday's game against the Jets.

The Browns want to get Edwin Baker some more chances over the final two games, so we can't be sure McGahee will even get his starting job back. He's averaging a pathetic 2.73 YPC on 138 rushes this season. No Cleveland runner is a realistic fantasy option against Rex Ryan's strong front seven.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 11:06:00 AM

Willis McGahee (concussion) said he expects to return for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Speaking Monday, McGahee said he's feeling "pretty good." The doctors will have the final say on his Week 16 status, but it sounds like he's been cleared or expects to be cleared shortly. If McGahee suits up, he'd likely share the early-down work with Edwin Baker. Chris Ogbonnaya will remain the pass-catching back. Regardless, the entire Browns backfield is going to be "hands off" in fantasy against Rex Ryan's elite run defense. Look for another pass-happy game plan out of Norv Turner and Rob Chudzinski.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 09:55:00 AM

Willis McGahee (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 versus Chicago.

McGahee didn't practice at all this week after running into a brick wall named Brandon Spikes last Sunday. Coach Rob Chudzinski even hinted McGahee could be done for the season. Chris Ogbonnaya will draw the start in his place, with Fozzy Whittaker working in as a COP back. Ogbonnaya has RB2/flex appeal.

Willis McGahee (concussion) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

McGahee isn't going to play this week after colliding head-on with wrecking ball Patriots LB Brandon Spikes last Sunday. Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker will handle the work against a painfully bad Bears run defense. Ogbonnaya is the favorite to lead the pack. He has some RB2/flex appeal for Week 15.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 11:36:00 AM

Willis McGahee (concussion) remained out of Browns practice Thursday.

Seeing as coach Rob Chudzinski is talking about McGahee's season potentially being over, it's looking like it will be the Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker show against the Bears' putrid run defense. Despite the enviable matchup, Ogbonnaya wouldn't be more than a desperation RB2 for Week 15. The situation will be updated Friday.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 01:36:00 PM

Coach Rob Chudzinski didn't rule out Willis McGahee's (concussion) season being over.

McGahee may have lost consciousness when he took a headshot late in the loss at New England. It doesn't sound like the Browns are anticipating his return anytime soon, as they've signed Edwin Baker. Chris Ogbonnaya is shaping up as a desperation RB2 play against the Bears Sunday.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 09:30:00 AM

Willis McGahee (concussion) will not practice Wednesday.

The Browns running back situation is normally a fantasy black hole, but there's intrigue this week because they have a home game against the Bears. Chicago has given up at least 100 yards rushing to opposing running backs in six straight games. McGahee was sent home from the facility Wednesday, suggesting that he's not on track to get cleared in time for Sunday. Chris Ogbonnaya is in line to draw the start, with Fozzy Whittaker and newly signed Edwin Baker in supporting roles. Ogbonnaya would have some desperation RB2 appeal, especially in PPR formats.
