Pros: McMichael looks to be healthy for his contract year after a leg injury stopped his 2008 season after just four weeks. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is installing a West Coast-style offense that would probably feature McMichael in a bigger role. He didn't miss a game in his career until last season. He has little competition at his position.
Cons: The focus on running back Steve Jackson's offensive game may not leave much for those outside of wide receiver Donnie Avery. Quarterback Marc Bulger may be on his last legs as Rams quarterback and has thrown more picks than scores since 2006; sure, health has been an issue, but he has fallen off significantly. McMichael has had just two games with more than four receptions in a Rams uni.
Fantasy tip: McMichael isn't selected in drafts on average; it's worth taking a flier on him as a No. 2 option if you want to wait until the last round of extremely deep drafts. If he's healthy, you could acquire a former dynamo at the position, someone proven that isn't too far from showing his skills.
