So what do you think about Willis McGahee? He has let me down all year, should I go with Rhodes?

Ole,

Great question. McGahee is in a job share situation and the Ravens are not an explosive offensive team.

I think that Rhodes will be a better play even against the Packers defense. McGahee is going against the Dolphins defense which is not as good but they are improving and spunky.
