Bills | LeSean McCoy could limited in Week 1

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:35:07 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) may not be in great "football shape" once Week 1 rolls around, according to a source. He's not at full speed in practice but is doing rehab work including light footwork, agility and cardio conditioning. A source told ESPN's Josina Anderson McCoy's MRI showed, what was described internally as, a "small tear," adding: "They say it tore in a spot where it couldn't have been any better for us. It tore in a spot that is kind of high up, surrounded by stronger muscles in the glutes and things like that."

Fantasy Tip: McCoy doesn't sound like a great daily play on FantasyScore for Week 1, but he's still a legit RB1 in traditional leagues. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown could be one-week plays in the opener.

Bills | Concern LeSean McCoy won't be ready?

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:32:19 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) seems to be in some danger of missing the season opener Sept. 13. "Well we certainly expect him to be ready to go, I hope," coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Aug. 31. "If not then the next man has to step up. Boobie (Anthony Dixon) got a lot of reps out there today. Bryce Brown got a lot of reps today. So we will see. I am not going to put that all on one man. If he is not ready to go, he won't be in there."

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on the situation if you're a McCoy owner, obviously. However, this also means that Dixon and/or Brown could be excellent one-week plays in traditional leagues and FantasyScore.

Bills | Buffalo optimistic about LeSean McCoy

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 10:42:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) injured his hamstring in practice earlier this week, but head coach Rex Ryan is "cautiously optimistic" that the running back will return in time for Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. The team didn't reveal the results of McCoy's MRI exam, but Ryan said that McCoy's hamstring was intact and hadn't separated from the bone.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy's injury will worry fantasy football owners, but as long as he's healthy in time for the start of the regular season, he should remain an RB1 worth taking in the early rounds. McCoy should have a heavy workload in what will likely be a run-first team.

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 05:58:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be ready for Week 1, a source said after McCoy had an MRI.

Fantasy Tip: Shady's injury comes at a bad time and could be something that can linger. He's still a high-end RB1, but he has some worries involved as well.

Bills | LeSean McCoy will have MRI

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 16:47:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will have an MRI on the hamstring injury that caused him to leave practice Tuesday, Aug. 18. The hamstring is not off the bone, however.

Fantasy Tip: It could have been worse, but McCoy could still be sidelined for a bit even if it's a strain. This situation will obviously need to be monitored, as the MRI will show the extent of the injury.

Bills | LeSean McCoy leaves early

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 16:12:15 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (leg) limped off the field Tuesday, Aug. 18, as he grabbed the back of his left leg. McCoy was looked at by team trainers and went to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: This could very well be a hamstring injury, which can be extra annoying, especially for running backs. McCoy's status will obviously need to be monitored as training camp and the preseason continue. As it stands, McCoy is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2, but this injury could set him back some if he misses any time. If McCoy does end up missing time, Fred Jackson will gain value, particularly in PPR leagues.

Bills | LeSean McCoy admits to rust

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 19:32:19 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy had six carries for 16 yards in a preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 14, and said after the game that he didn't play well and needs to knock of some rust.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is set for a big workload with the Bills this season. He should be considered a RB1 in all formats and should slip past the second round.

Bills | Coach has high hopes for LeSean McCoy

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:00:39 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy has the ability to record 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards this season, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "LeSean McCoy is a special back, a very talented guy. His merits stand up for themselves, he's led the league in rushing, but he's a multi-dimensional guy," Ryan said. "He can dominate a game in the passing game and the running game, so that's what we're going to use him for, that Marshall Faulk - does he have 1,000 receiving and 1,000 rushing? That's a real possibility."

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is expected to be used a lot this season, and his value would receive a boost if he is involved in the passing game as well. McCoy should be selected in the first or second round in every draft this season.

Bills | LeSean McCoy's toe a non-issue

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 15:44:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy's (toe) toe injury is of no concern, and he looked great in practice Thursday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a fair target late in the first round in all types of leagues, but he'll also need to continue catching plenty of passes out of the backfield in order to be worth the squeeze in point-per-reception formats. Will he get that in Buffalo?
