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.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:13:41 -0700
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (head) has been able to return after missing time with a head injury.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should watch to see if McCoy will be able to finish the game and have any problems in the next day or two. McCoy should be a starting option in most weeks when healthy.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:51:59 -0700
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (head) is being examined for a head injury after leaving the team's Week 3 game. It is not known if McCoy will be able to return.
Fantasy Tip: Darren Sproles and Chris Polk likely will fill in at running back while McCoy is sidelined. Both players could be options on FantasyScore next week if McCoy has to miss at least one week.
Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:43:04 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) was slow to get up after suffering an apparent helmet-to-helmet hit during the team's Week 3 game. He was able to walk off the field under his own power.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy could be checked for a concussion and may not return to the game depending on the severity of the injury. Owners will need to watch his status during the game and over the next few days.
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 20:47:27 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 20 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Sept. 15, and he added four receptions for 23 yards.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy had a decent stat line for fantasy owners, but it was Darren Sproles who stole the show and is eating into the fantasy appeal of Shady a little bit. Still, McCoy is an unquestionable RB1 in all formats, as he is still getting ample touches.
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 06:02:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles had 11 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown and four receptions for 14 yards in Week 1. He played 33 snaps (38 percent) while RB LeSean McCoy played 67 percent of the snaps. The two took four snaps together.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles broke a 49-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that inflated his box score numbers. He won't always be that productive in limited work, but he might be a great flex option against the Colts in Week 2.
Sun, 24 Aug 2014 20:42:19 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb, toe) said he will be fine for Week 1 after suffering a thumb injury in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. McCoy also said that a toe injury that kept him out of a practice last week was "feeling good."
Fantasy Tip: Although McCoy's status still needs to be checked on before the season begins, it sounds like he will be on the field in the opener.
Sat, 23 Aug 2014 11:12:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) practiced Saturday, Aug. 23, after spraining his thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Fantasy Tip: This is a good sign that McCoy should be good to go for the regular season, as long as he doesn't aggravate the injury.
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 20:34:04 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) said he expects to be ready for the regular season after spraining his right thumb during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Fantasy Tip: Any type of injury isn't ideal for a player of McCoy's caliber, but it doesn't look like this thumb sprain should affect his status as one of the top picks in fantasy drafts.
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:57:15 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy's (thumb) X-rays on his right thumb came back negative, but he will not return to the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like McCoy avoided a serious injury. As the centerpiece of a high-powered offense, he should be one of the first players taken in any fantasy draft.
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:28:40 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) left the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21, and went to the locker room for X-rays on his right thumb.
Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on his condition. McCoy is an option for the No. 1 overall pick in all formats, and a serious injury would have a major impact.
Wed, 20 Aug 2014 07:02:41 -0700
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) has a painful condition similar to turf toe that flared up last week. He had an MRI and an X-ray on the toe, and he even had conversations about shutting it down if the pain became unbearable.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy has returned to practice, but this may be something he'll have to monitor all season. It shouldn't affect his draft stock much, but it could certainly give owners pause when he's one of the first names selected in drafts.
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 10:53:06 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 18. McCoy said he suffered a toe injury during practice last week but underwent an MRI and everything is fine. He plans on playing in the third preseason game but does not think he will need many reps.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy is expected to be involved in the running and passing game this season and likely will be in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick in many fantasy drafts.
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:43:04 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 18.
Fantasy Tip: They'll likely be careful with him the rest of the preseason, and his draft stock shouldn't suffer.
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:15:19 -0700
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) was out of practice Sunday, Aug. 17, due to a physical ailment, but nothing serious, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Fantasy Tip: The team is being coy about the ailment, but it doesn't sound like anything that should hinder his draft stock.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 08:50:23 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Tip: This is likely just a rest day for McCoy with the team on a short week. Still, check back tomorrow to make sure McCoy returns to the practice field.
Fri, 15 Aug 2014 16:45:39 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Henry Josey is expected to handle a majority of the carries after RBs LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Tip: Josey is one of the candidates for the No. 3 running back job in Philly, and his competition - Chris Polk and Matthew Tucker - are sidelined by injuries.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:36:48 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy and LB Trent Cole squared off in a fight during training camp Sunday, July 27. "Next thing you know, they're on the ground scuffling," LB Brandon Graham said. "It was just a friendly thing, you know. They're always competing and talking stuff to each other. It was just one of those things." The fight was broken up before any damage was done.
Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:24:51 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is unlikely to be in line for a smaller workload this year after leading the league in carries (314) and touches (366) last year. There were no signs that McCoy's production suffered because of his heavy workload in 2013, and he often mentions that his running style helps him take fewer big hits.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the presence of Darren Sproles in the backfield, McCoy is one of the most talented all-around running backs in the NFL. He should be considered a top-three fantasy running back in this high-paced offense.
Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:24:08 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk should serve as RB LeSean McCoy's primary backup this year with RB Darren Sproles maintaining a secondary role in the offense, according to ESPN.com's Joe Kaiser.
Fantasy Tip: With Bryce Brown being traded to the Buffalo Bills in the offseason, an injury to McCoy would mean a serious workload for Polk. He is worth considering as a handcuff if you draft McCoy.
Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:21:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy praised QB Nick Foles, saying this is the year Foles has a great season. "Nick, he wants to play, he wants to get better," McCoy said. "He's playing lights-out even in camp, but he still wants to be at a higher level. He's at that peak where people know him like, 'Man, this Foles, is he that good?' Because you see the stats, you see the numbers. I think this is the year he blows 'em out like, 'Yeah, I'm Nick Foles. I'm Philadelphia's quarterback. I'm the guy.' And this is the year he blows it away."
Fantasy Tip: Foles surprised everyone and had a fantastic season in 2013, but losing his best wide receiver in DeSean Jackson may be a lot to overcome in 2014. Temper your expectations with Foles.
Mon, 19 May 2014 12:07:45 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy thinks he's the best running back in the NFL. "My brother always rips me all the time, trying to make me play harder. I say, 'I'm the best,' and he'll say, 'Did Adrian Peterson retire?' I look at the last three years and everything. I think AP has been the best back for so long, and he's been doing it for so long, that's why he automatically gets the best running back (title)," McCoy said.
Fri, 25 Apr 2014 20:17:24 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he believes the addition of RB Darren Sproles will help him this upcoming season, because it will allow him to stay fresh longer in games. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together. I think having me fresh in the fourth quarter with fewer carries can be even more dangerous," McCoy said.
Thu, 13 Mar 2014 05:59:11 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for an undisclosed package.
Fantasy Tip: Sproles fits the offense well and will continue to be a good running back to own in point-per reception leagues. However, he'll be 31 next season, and he could have landed in a better spot for fantasy purposes. Sproles' presence may also limit LeSean McCoy's touches, but it should add more longevity to his career after his phenomenal, but taxing, 2013 season. Sproles should often be a good RB3 in PPR leagues, but is a RB4 or handcuff material in others. McCoy remains a stud RB1 in all formats.
Tue, 18 Feb 2014 23:44:34 -0800
The Philadelphia Eagles need to add depth at running back behind RB LeSean McCoy, and ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan speculates the team may draft a running back in May rather than sign one as a free agent.

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 11:12:49 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) left the Week 11 game with an apparent right hamstring injury.
Fantasy Tip: He walked off under his own power, so it could be a cramp. We'll keep you posted.
Sun, 20 Oct 2013 16:48:23 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy entered the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys as the league's leading rusher, but he was held to just 55 rushing yards on 17 carries. He also added six receptions for 26 yards.
McCoy had two 100-yard games with two rushing touchdowns through the first three games, but he has hit the century mark just once in the past four games, and he has just one score during the span. He remains an obvious must-start in all fantasy leagues going forward, but as the Philadelphia offense has struggled, mostly due to injury at the quarterback spot, McCoy's production has suffered.
Sun, 13 Oct 2013 21:27:39 -0700

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 05:29:01 -0700

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 06:48:43 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy wants the team to spread the ball around better on offense. "I didn't mind it Monday night," McCoy said. "I think we can do a better job rotating because it's a long season. I don't think I need to have the ball 31, 32 times in a game for us to be a successful offense. We have too many different weapons. I think the running backs we have here can definitely play. Bryce Brown showed you last year he's definitely a talented back. So I think we have to do a better job of monitoring the reps."
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 09:45:53 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles' offense was efficient and quick in their Week 1 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 9; they ran a play every 22.4 seconds and 53 in the entire game. RB LeSean McCoy had big holes to run through, and WRs DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant and TE Brent Celek were wide open most of the time down the field. QB Michael Vick was very successful running the read-option. However, the Eagles players looked fatigued late in the game, often coming off the field for breathers. Jackson didn't catch any passes in the second half. "The tempo really worked," McCoy said. "I don't think anyone has seen it that fast. We've got to learn. We're learning as the thing goes. Coach Chip Kelly is a great coach. Today is the first time a lot of the guys in the locker room had fun. We couldn't wait to get back out there and have fun."
Fantasy Tip: Philly's offense was downright impressive in the first half. The up-tempo attack should continue to create mismatches in opposing defenses, but as we saw in the second half, is this something that Philadelphia will be able to sustain over a full season? Probably not, but for the time being, it makes all of the Iggles' offensive weapons much more attractive.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 21:30:32 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy carried 31 times for 184 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 9. He also added one reception for five yards. His 31 carries marked a career high, and he was just one rushing yard short of tying his career best in yardage.
Fantasy Tip: If you're a fantasy owner in formats which reward points per reception (PPR), maybe you can complain a little bit since he had just one grab, but he still had a giant night.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:10:44 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (knee) is expected to play in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: It is good news that he will see game action, but still, check back to see how he is doing next week before you pencil him in on your running back cheat sheets.
Sun, 11 Aug 2013 09:06:11 -0700
