Eagles | LeSean McCoy says he is same player

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 10:38:37 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he is the same player he was last season even though he is only averaging 3.7 yards per carry this season, which is the lowest in his career.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy led the NFL in rushing in 2013 with 1,607 yards but has rushed for only 729 yards so far this season. McCoy will be facing a Tennessee Titans defense that has struggled against running backs this season. McCoy costs $6,900 on FantasyScore and should be a solid starting option against the Titans.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy's futility worst of career

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 06:25:21 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy averaged fewer than 2 yards per carry for the third time this season with 12 carries for 19 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. McCoy had two games of fewer than 2 yards per carry in his career before this season.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($7,200; 14.4% of your cap) figures to have a good chance for a big game against the futile Green Bay Packers run defense this week. However, the Panthers ranked 26th in the league. He's a boom or bust RB1 on FantasyScore this week.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy practicing

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 08:16:52 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (illness) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy appears to be improving after missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, because of the illness. He probably will be able to play in Week 10 and should be a solid starting option if owners on FantasyScore are willing to spend $7,200 on him.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy out with illness

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 11:13:29 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (illness) missed practice with an illness Wednesday, Nov. 5, but he should be back Thursday, Nov. 6, and ready to go for the team's Week 10 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($7,200) will be fine for Monday night against the Panthers, a defense that has surprisingly been pretty awful all season long. McCoy isn't a bad option for FantasyScore lineups, and the team could lean more on the ground game with Mark Sanchez in at quarterback.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy hits century mark

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 20:37:13 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy carried 22 times for a season-high 149 yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants, although he was held out of the end zone again. He also chipped in with two receptions for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners finally saw Shady get untracked, but now the team faces a bye in Week 7. McCoy might have the carries all to himself once the team returns, as Darren Sproles left with a knee injury in Sunday's game.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy needs to break free

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 07:52:14 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he needs to break more tackles and felt like he was taken down by a lot of desperation tackles in Week 5. "There's still stuff that we need to do to get better with it, and I think it starts with me," McCoy said. "I need to break more tackles. I feel like last game was too many save tackles, like a guy just gets my leg, stuff like that."

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($6,700; 13.4% of your cap) is still pretty expensive on FantasyScore with his continued struggles. We'd like to see him have a season high of more than 81 yards before investing that much in him. However, he's dynamic enough to do it at any time.

Eagles | Coach removed LeSean McCoy from game

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 09:47:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said running backs coach Duce Staley removed him late in the team's Week 5 win when the team was trying to run out the clock. McCoy was removed in favor of RB Darren Sproles. "They called me out. Duce pulled me out," McCoy said. "For the most part, if I'm tired, I come out. Then Sproles has his different packages, he has his plays to come in, but the majority of the time, it's just how I'm feeling." Sproles popped a 25-yard run the first play after replacing McCoy, who had 81 yards on 24 carries in the game.

Head coach Chip Kelly noted that sometimes defenses play the run differently when McCoy is in the game compared to Sproles. Sproles seems to receive better blocking at times, and he can be savvier at reading what's in front of him in cramped situations.

Fantasy Tip: It was nice to see McCoy have his best game of the season, but we're still waiting for that breakout game. It could come in Week 6 against the New York Giants. McCoy will cost you $6,700 (13.4% of cap) at FantasyScore.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy checks out

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 06:52:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy took himself out of the game in the fourth quarter Sunday, Oct. 5, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team was trying to ice the game with a six-point lead.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy continues to struggle, but he had a season-high 81 rushing yards in Week 5 on 24 carries (3.4 yards per rush). He'll have a potentially good matchup against the New York Giants in Week 6.

Eagles | No LeSean McCoy at goal line

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:48:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy didn't carry the ball on third or fourth down from the San Francisco 49ers' 1-yard line in fourth quarter of the team's Week 4 loss, and head coach Chip Kelly said he didn't trust the offensive line in the situation. "We weren't really getting a ton of push at the point of attack," Kelly said. "I didn't think we were going to be able to pound it in in that situation."

Fantasy Tip: Although it's too early to give up on McCoy, it's not a good sign that the struggling offensive line is costing him goal-line touches. The Eagles have a Week 5 game against a St. Louis defense ranked 30th against the run, and if McCoy can't find some running room in that game, it could be time to hit the panic button.

Eagles | No treatment for LeSean McCoy

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:07:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) is not injured, head coach Chip Kelly said Monday, Sept. 29. "He's not on the treatment list," Kelly said. "He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him." McCoy struggled again in Week 4, and there were rumors his struggles this season have been linked to a turf toe injury suffered during the preseason.
