Week 12 Projections
McClain battled a neck injury in training camp, but the veteran told Patricia Traina of Bleacher Report he's used to the chips being stacked against him. 'Nothing is ever picking roses for me; I always gotta go in and fight and prove day in and day out what I represent and this year is no different. What do I have to hold back? I got nothing left; I'm going to empty it all out, every day, every second. I'm going to give fire and I'm going to influence my fire on my teammates because that's what's necessary for this game, and that's what's going to be necessary for us to win.' McCalin might give it all on the field, but most of his IDP value was tied to Jon Beason's injury woes. As a two-down SLB, McClain's IDP upside is limited.'
