McGahee is coming off of his 33rd 100-yard rushing performance, which ranks first among active NFL players. Excluding his fumbles, which the Broncos are looking to correct, McGahee’s motor has been a reliable option for Denver’s offense this season. Here’s how he stacks up against fellow NFL backs:
|RB Willis McGahee||Yards||Avg.||Yds/G||TD||Long||1st||1st%|
|*Excluding QBs, low-carry RBs|
As the numbers show, McGahee’s attempts, average, and yards-per-game average rank near the middle of the NFL. Meanwhile, his number of scores, first downs, and first down percentage numbers rank near the top of the league. The veteran can still be counted on to move the sticks and is Denver’s best short-yardage option.
What have you thought of McGahee’s performance through the season thus far? Has he lived up to your expectations?
