Daily Haze: Ray Rice Minus Willis McGahee, Le'Ron McClain in 2011?
Few things frustrate fantasy owners like touchdown vultures. Next year, however, fantasy owners may be without two of the biggest in one crowded backfield.
"McGahee has a $6 million salary, part of three years and $19.7M left on his massive contract. The Ravens are likely to move on from their backup running back after McGahee averaged just 6.6 carries per game in 2010. With Le’Ron McClain also a free agent, Ray Rice has a chance to emerge as the goal-line back in 2011. Baltimore will likely also add talent to the position."
Clear the way for Ray Rice.
Fantasy owners drafted Rice in the upper-to-mid first round of fantasy drafts last year despite McGahee’s presence. Without McGahee? Rice would find himself in that range once again this summer, but perhaps with renewed fantasy support.
Rice finished ninth among RBs in 2010. Imagine his ceiling with a few more goal-line touches sprinkled in next year.
