Broncos RB Willis McGahee skips opening day of OTAs

Despite speculation that Willis McGahee's hold on the starting job - or a job at all - with the Broncos is tenuous, the veteran running back skipped Monday's OTA in Denver. It's not unusual for the 31-year-old veteran to miss a portion of the voluntary workouts, though he was the only non-injured veteran not in camp. The Broncos have an overflow of options in the backfield after drafting Wisconsin's Montee Ball in the second of the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Analysis:

The reality is either McGahee or fellow veteran Knowshon Moreno @knowshonmoreno is unlikely to stick around now that the Broncos have youthful thunder (Ball) and lightning (Ronnie Hillman) combination. Following the 2011 lockout, he signed a four-year contract and then rushed for 1,199 yards. McGahee's 2012 campaign was cut short after suffering a torn MCL and a compression fracture in his right tibia. Even if he makes the roster and assuming Ball doesn't flop in camp, McGahee's days of being a fantasy RB2 are just about done, at least in Denver.
