Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Positives Expect good yardage out of McGahee.
The defense should improve with everyone back from the injury reports last year, providing more opportunity for the offense. Negatives Questionable QB and OL situations.
Knee injury is a concern.
Ray Rice could eat into some starting time. Draft Strategy The RB talent is beginning to drop off and McGahee feels like a good value here at the end of the 2nd round.
Grant was chose immediately before the pick, and I would have preferred Grant with the idea of him having a higher ceiling than McGahee. (Contributed by: ledford1)
Round 3, Pick 3
Positives Solid RB when healthy. Puts up average or better points almost every week. Negatives Bone chips being removed, doesn't sound too bad, but people are making quite a big deal out of it. Might not be 100% for a few weeks. Draft Strategy After drafting Manning with 2.10, only one other RB was taken (Thomas Jones). I would not have taken him anyway. Needed a good second RB from this second tier, and McGahee is it. (Contributed by: Ed_Leduke)
