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.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy not injured

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 14:27:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is not dealing with any injuries at this time, according to head coach Chip Kelly. McCoy rushed for only 17 yards on 10 carries in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy has struggled to find running room this season but could be helped with the addition of Lane Johnson to the offensive line. McCoy could perform better if he is given the ball in space and allow him to make plays. Owners should continue to start McCoy each week but will need to lower their expectations until he posts better numbers.

Eagles | Line play hurting LeSean McCoy

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:27:28 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 10 carries for 17 yards Sunday, Sept. 28, and has 29 carries for 39 yards in the last two weeks. "We got whooped up front," head coach Chip Kelly said. "We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality."

Fantasy Tip: McCoy has a good matchup in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams and remains a must-start in all formats.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy not concerned

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 11:35:03 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is not concerned with his rushing numbers from Week 3, and said he does not feel like he is struggling after posting 22 yards on 19 carries. "I don't think I'm struggling at all," McCoy said. "I don't know what you mean by that. I don't think I'm struggling, at all. So I don't know what you mean by that."

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Chip Kelly credited the Washington Redskins front seven for doing a good job against the run after the game, and pointed out that it opened some things in the passing game. While the slow start is not ideal, it is something to monitor moving forward.

Redskins | WAS defense contained LeSean McCoy

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 06:55:23 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was held in check by the Washington Redskins' big nickel package and base defensive front Sunday, Sept. 21. He was rarely able to bounce outside and averaged 1.1 yards per carry in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: It was an off day for Shady, who left the game briefly with a head injury. He's still a must-start on a weekly basis.
