Bills | LeSean McCoy ready to move on

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 20:08:32 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is "ready to move on" a day after he was informed the Philadelphia Eagles planned to trade him to the Bills, a source close to the running back said Wednesday, March 4.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy remains an RB1 for fantasy owners heading into 2015, but he is no longer in the conversation for top pick on draft day, especially as long as Fred Jackson remains healthy. The good news for Bills fans is that McCoy has come to grips with the deal and now sounds positive about his new team. He might come to enjoy the offense of Rex Ryan quite a bit more than that of Chip Kelly's, as Rex loves the ground and pound style.

Bills | Buffalo to restructure LeSean McCoy

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 17:02:08 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will reportedly be given a revised contract with his new team. McCoy is currently without any guaranteed money in 2016, which would change. The Bills play to "take very good care of him," according to a source familiar with the team's thinking.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how McCoy's unhappiness with his trade to Buffalo might affect things, but a restructuring of his contract is a good place to start for the Bills to appease him. His move to Buffalo is a mixed bag for his fantasy value, since Fred Jackson and Bryce Brown are also in the picture. Consider him a high-end RB that could come at a reasonable discount.

Bills | LeSean McCoy unhappy with trade

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 07:54:30 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is unhappy with the trade to the Bills, according to a source close to him. "He's a Pennsylvania kid. He's never played football outside of Pennsylvania," the source said. "So of course he's not happy. Sounds like it's pretty final to me unless LeSean is refusing to go to Buffalo." When the source was asked if McCoy was going to make the trade difficult, they said: "he's not going to make it easy, that's for sure."

Fantasy Tip: McCoy didn't appear to fit Chip Kelly's offense very well, and the offensive line was pretty rough at times. Rex Ryan is known to run the ball often. Shady might not be used as a receiver as much, but that could actually bode well for him through the course of 16 games. He's still a low-end RB1, but he might actually come at a slight discount because of his down year and the clouded outlook of Buffalo's offense.

Bills | LeSean McCoy will be costly for BUF

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 15:58:06 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy has two years left on his current contract that will cost $6.9 million and $7.6 million, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills needed another running back with C.J. Spiller becoming a free agent, and McCoy is a dynamic back, but he's not coming cheap. Still, as long as McCoy stays healthy, he should remain in RB1 territory with Buffalo.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy to be traded

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 15:39:53 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy will reportedly be traded for Buffalo Bills LB Kiko Alonso.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy will inevitably start with C.J. Spiller on his way out and Fred Jackson aging; although, Jackson will likely still cut into some of McCoy's time. Jackson was used frequently in the passing game in 2014, while McCoy regressed in that area in Philadelphia. As for the Eagles, Darren Sproles figures to see a nice boost in fantasy value, while Chris Polk becomes a sleeper candidate.

Eagles | Tough financial decisions ahead

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 11:28:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin had a career year in 2014, but the team may have trouble re-signing him due to salary cap issues. The Eagles may not be able to retain both Maclin and RB LeSean McCoy. McCoy is under contract for another three years, but his salary cap number increases to $11.9 million in 2015, unless he restructures his current deal. If the Eagles cannot re-sign Maclin, they would have to commit more than $12 million for using the franchise tag on him.

Eagles | Chris Polk the goal-line back?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:18:47 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk appears to have become the team's goal-line back of late, and two of the three snaps he played in Week 15 led to short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the five-yard line, RB Darren Sproles took the ball for a TD. The Eagles have struggled in the red zone this year, and they think Polk's size and power gives him an advantage at the goal line. "Some of the short-yardage stuff, Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game," RB LeSean McCoy said. McCoy has 10 carries inside the five-yard line this year and has three touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Polk ($3,300) is a very deep flex play, at best, at FantasyScore, and the matchup against the Washington Redskins isn't a good one for either Polk or LeSean McCoy ($7,100) in Week 16.
