Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) has been cleared to practice and play in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Toss McGahee into the mix with Chris Ogbonnaya, Fozzy Whitaker and last week's surprise scorer, Edwin Baker as the Browns try to find someone who can run the ball with success against the Jets.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) said he's feeling 'pretty good' and expects to return in Week 16 after being inactive in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Good to see McGahee bouncing back after it appeared his season -- and possibly his career -- might be over, but he doesn't belong in fantasy game-plans at this point as the Browns have struggled rushing the ball all season, no matter who's starting or taking the handoffs.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rod Chudzinski said he's not sure if RB Willis McGahee's (concussion) season is over. He may have lost consciousness when he suffered his concussion.
Huddle Up: Concussions are not to be trifled with, and whether he wants to play or not McGahee will need to pass the league-mandated tests before returning. This sounds a little more serious than a typical concussion, so don't bank on a return from McGahee this season; the Browns will just have to get by with Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whitaker.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Yeah, McGahee will play -- and likely start -- again the Steelers on Sunday, but by now most of his fantasy owners should realize that Chris Ogbonnaya -- coming off a season-high 15 touches for 99 yards in Week 11 -- has overtaken the veteran as the Browns' top fantasy back.

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya will start receiving more carries and dip into RB Willis McGahee's workload. McGahee is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry in 100 rushes.
Huddle Up: McGahee hasn't been anything special, so why not give Ogbonnaya some work to see if he can at least play a role in the Browns' backfield going forward. He's already the team's third down back, so if you're in a PPR league desperate for backfield help he'll get you a few catches in addition to the extra carries he's expected to receive.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knees) is getting the day off from practice Thursday, Oct. 31, to rest his knees.
Huddle Up: McGahee's success has been limited to be certain as he's topped 50 rushing yards in only 1 of his 6 games with the Browns and has accounted for only 1 TD. He's a RB depth option at best right now in most leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8.
Huddle Up: McGahee returned to practice after sitting out Thursday and could see a few extra carries Sunday as the Browns and new starting QB Jason Campbell don't want to be forced to pass against the league's top pass-rushing team in the Chiefs.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: It more or less sounds like a day of rest for the veteran RB and his sore knee. Expect him to return Friday and play Sunday in K.C.

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee expects improved performance in Week 4 after his first full week of practice with the team.
Huddle Up: It will be interesting to see how much McGahee is utilized going forward. We all knew last week was going to be light given he had just been signed off the street.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee will play in Week 3. The team's offense is similar to the one he was involved in with the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: McGahee will be in a backfield mix with Chris Ogbonnaya and Bobby Rainey; facing an 0-2 Vikings team in its home opener, with a backup quarterback at the helm, doesn't feel like a good place to look for fantasy help.

The Cleveland Browns signed RB Willis McGahee (Broncos) Thursday, Sept. 19. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: McGahee joins Chris Ogbonnaya and Bobby Rainey as only active RBs on the roster following the surprise trade of Trent Richardson. If you're thinking down the road this season, McGahee is the best fantasy bet, but until he gets up to speed after joining a new offense, not attending training camp, etc., give Browns backs a wide berth.
