Bills | LeSean McCoy reached milestone

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:18:01 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy surpassed 1,000 yards from scrimmage on the season in Week 13. It's his seventh season accomplishing such a feat. The only season in which he did not total 1,000 yards from scrimmage was his rookie year (945 total yards).

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for McCoy owners, he was vulture twice last week by Mike Gillislee. Gillislee has proven to be a valuable handcuff, but McCoy remains an every-week starter. He's in low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 territory heading into Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bills | LeSean McCoy able to finish up

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:36:45 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) was able to return to the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders after leaving with an undisclosed injury, and he finished strong. He ended up with 17 carries for 130 yards and seven receptions for 61 yards, both team highs.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy remains a RB1 in all fantasy formats as long as he can stay healthy. Lately that has been the only concern using Shady on a regular basis.

Bills | LeSean McCoy injured after run

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 15:22:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) was shaken up after a run in the third quarter of the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was down for a few moments and being attended to by trainers.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain what the issue is with Shady right now, but his leg buckled rather awkwardly upon being tackled. When there is more information we'll pass it along to you. Mike Gillislee, who already has two touchdown runs in the game, will benefit the most if Shady cannot return.

Bills | LeSean McCoy has big game

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 18:00:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) posted 19 runs for 103 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also added two receptions for 31 yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Shady started out a little slow, and perhaps he was tentative after having a splint on his surgically repaired thumb. As the game progressed, however, he looked like himself. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 13.

Bills | LeSean McCoy to play Sunday

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 07:46:30 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) will play in Week 12's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is expected to see a heavier workload than normal because RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) will not be active.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy was limited in practice throughout the week while recovering from a dislocated thumb and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a high-end RB2 in all fantasy formats.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy probably will receive most of the work against the Jacksonville Jaguars since Mike Gillislee has been ruled out. It is not known how much the thumb injury will affect McCoy's play, but he should still be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Bills | LeSean McCoy set for heavy workload

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 11:22:10 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) will be "ready to get the majority of the reps" in Week 12, according to head coach Rex Ryan, who added, "I think (McCoy's) thumb is fine."

Fantasy Tip: This is what we have been led to believe all week, but it is always nice to get confirmation from the head coach. With backup Mike Gillislee and Robert Woods both ruled out and Sammy Watkins not ready to assume a full complement of snaps yet, the Bills need McCoy to carry the offense for now. Although his receiving numbers could take a hit in the nature of his injury, "Shady" is poised to put up RB1 numbers again this week.

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 12:13:46 -0800

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Bills | LeSean McCoy to see limited work

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 09:18:13 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) will see limited work in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23. Head coach Rex Ryan said one of the challenges would be to keep McCoy's thumb away from infection.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy faces a Jacksonville Jaguars team in the midrange against the RB position the last five weeks. However, there has to be serious concern starting a back that had surgery on his thumb the same week. How will he be as a receiver? Can he hang on to the football? Will he see a limited role? These are all questions to consider, and he's a risky RB2.

Bills | LeSean McCoy likely to play

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 06:45:42 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) had a procedure done on his dislocated thumb Monday, Nov. 21, but barring something unexpected, he's expected to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills face the Jacksonville Jaguars next week in what is a decent matchup for McCoy. The Jags are in the bottom half of the league at defending the position the last five weeks.

Bills | LeSean McCoy has dislocated thumb

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 13:47:34 -0800

Updating previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) suffered a dislocated thumb in Week 11, but the team does not seem concerned about the injury, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for a possible timetable for McCoy over the next few days, but it appears like he may not miss a lot of playing time. McCoy will should be a starting option if he plays in Week 11, but Mike Gillislee could be a flex option in McCoy is ruled out.

Bills | LeSean McCoy ruled out

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 12:24:54 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) will miss the rest of the game Sunday, Nov. 20, against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy owners may want to go out and get Mike Gillislee as insurance, as Gillislee just became the No. 1 RB in Buffalo as long as McCoy is out.

Bills | LeSean McCoy injures thumb

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 11:30:07 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) suffered a thumb injury in Week 11 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of McCoy's injury is not known at this point, so owners should monitor the situation. McCoy is one of the better running backs in fantasy and is a must-start option if he is healthy. Mike Gillislee would receive most of the work if McCoy misses time and can be a flex option.

Bills | LeSean McCoy totals 120 yards

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 21:26:51 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 85 yards in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Nov. 7. He also hauled in four receptions for 35 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Shady has been nicked up, but he fought through his hamstring injury and put up a solid amount of yardage against a good defense. He is a tremendous RB1 in all fantasy formats when active, although you'll need to make other plans in Week 10 with Shady and the Bills on a bye.

Bills | LeSean McCoy active

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 16:19:22 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 9 game.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if McCoy will be limited during the game, but he probably will receive most of the work at running back. He will be a risky option for owners but can still be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Bills | LeSean McCoy expected to go for MNF

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 12:15:11 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is expected to be active Monday, Nov. 7, against the Seattle Seahawks to wrap up Week 10, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: We'll see for sure when the inactive list is announced about 90 minutes before the start of the game, but it would be very surprising at this point if he doesn't go and log his usual 20 touches. Even in a difficult matchup, "Shady" is a solid RB2 option this week.

Bills | LeSean McCoy practices Saturday

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 09:29:59 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) logged a third consecutive practice Saturday, Nov. 5, and is expected to play in Week 9 versus the Seattle Seahawks despite being labeled as questionable on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a near-lock for roughly 20 touches per week and this week should be no different, making him no worse than a high-floor RB2 despite the unforgiving matchup. Mike Gillislee will return to a pure relief role and should be benched in fantasy.

Bills | Optimism for LeSean McCoy

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 18:21:35 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is "really close" to returning, according to head coach Rex Ryan, and Ryan said he feels McCoy will play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy draws a tough matchup and will likely be less than 100 percent if he does suit up. He is no more than a flex option if he plays.

Bills | LeSean McCoy limited Friday

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 17:42:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a risky option for owners since the team plays on Monday Night Football, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation this weekend. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he plays, but owners will need to have other options available in case he is not able to play.

Bills | LeSean McCoy feels ready

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 06:23:16 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) said he feels ready to return in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: That doesn't mean he'll play this week after re-injuring his hamstring. The Bills face off against the Seattle Seahawks, and it won't be an easy draw for McCoy. He's a risky flex option if he suits up.

Bills | LeSean McCoy limited Thursday

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 19:04:25 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy has an extra day with this one being played on Monday night, so that is encouraging. However, with an upcoming bye week after the Seattle game, there is little reason to chance it from Buffalo's perspective.

Bills | LeSean McCoy to be limited

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 08:48:25 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Shady appears closer to returning. If it's this week, he'll have a tough draw against the Seattle Seahawks. This may not be the week to activate him, but you probably have to unless you're stacked at the position.

Bills | LeSean McCoy progressing

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 14:46:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) has made progress and head coach Rex Ryan hopes McCoy will be back to practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy's practice status will be telling this week. If he practices then he could very well be limited in order to lessen the risk of aggravation. Mike Gillislee may still have a decent role in Week 9, so don't release him even if McCoy is active. This situation is far from solidified.

Bills | LeSean McCoy could play in Week 9

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 06:51:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) could return for Week 9's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He has already been ruled out for Week 8 versus the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills play on Monday night in Week 9, giving McCoy a little extra time to recover from his left hamstring injury. Mike Gillislee will remain the starter for as long as McCoy is sidelined and should be viewed as a RB2 or flex option in all fantasy formats.

Bills | LeSean McCoy out for Week 8

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 22:33:21 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will not play in Week 8 against the New England Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McCoy was officially listed as doubtful.

Fantasy Tip: This was always the likely scenario, but now you can pencil in Mike Gillislee as the Bills' top back against the Pats. Look for Gillislee to get plenty of touches in what figures to be a physical game, and consider him an RB2.

Bills | LeSean McCoy doubtful for Week 8

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 10:46:35 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice at all this week and is listed as doubtful for Week 8 versus the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: We'll see if the Bills do the right thing this week. His absence from practice all week suggests he won't play, so Mike Gillislee needs to be in lineups for a Buffalo offense short on playmakers and ravaged by injuries. Gillislee should see enough volume to be a RB2, but his matchup is a difficult one.

Bills | LeSean McCoy sits again Friday

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 07:54:38 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Gillislee (foot) is also banged up, but he's likely to see a decent role if he's able to suit up against the New England Patriots. Reggie Bush could also be a factor, but his age restricts the amount of work he's likely able to see. Gillislee is a flex consideration, but it's a risky one.

Bills | LeSean McCoy's status uncertain

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 11:19:29 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said he is not sure about RB LeSean McCoy's (hamstring) availability for Week 8 and that team will see how he progresses over the next few days.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like McCoy may be a game-time decision again, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He was not able to finish the last game because of the injury, which makes him a risky option for Week 8. Owners may want to consider other options to use in their lineups.

Bills | LeSean McCoy out of practice

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:49:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy's status for Week 8 is up in the air, but the matchup against the New England Patriots isn't a great one. He had an OK game against them earlier this year with 19 rushes for 70 yards and a 6-38-1 receiving line. However, with his hamstring recurrence last week, he's pretty questionable this week.

Bills | LeSean McCoy does not practice

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:49:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy was not able to finish the team's Week 7 game because of the injury, so his status for Week 8 is uncertain. McCoy is a must-start option when he is healthy but is a risky option because of the injury. He could be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he is active.

Bills | LeSean McCoy likely questionable

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:55:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will probably be questionable for Week 8 after aggravating his hamstring injury in Week 7, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Rex Ryan's gamble didn't pay off yesterday. His star running back is looking like he'll be limited again in a crucial matchup with the New England Patriots. If McCoy is indeed limited or unable to play, then Mike Gillislee and Reggie Bush would see more work like they did in Week 7. Gillislee would be the better option, but neither is reliable enough to start, especially after a disappointing outing from Gillislee. McCoy is avoidable too if his workload is anything like it was yesterday.

Bills | LeSean McCoy felt pain in hamstring

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:48:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) said Sunday, Oct. 23, that he felt "a little pain in his injured left hamstring in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins while running a pass route in the third quarter. He and the team decided to sit him for the remainder of the game. "I just tried to take off," he said. "The smartest thing to do (was to sit), instead of re-injuring anything or making it worse. I kind of felt it was a warning."

Fantasy Tip: Shady was not himself, running eight times for just 11 yards and he did not have a catch. If Shady is forced to miss time it would be Mike Gillislee and Reggie Bush picking up the slack.

Bills | LeSean McCoy leaves game

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 12:37:04 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) left the team's Week 7 game early because of his hamstring injury and is considered doubtful to return.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy was not effective in his limited snaps during the game and could miss time if he aggravated the injury during the game. Owners will need to look for an update on his status in the next day or two.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 08:55:00 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is active for Week 7's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is unlikely to be able to shoulder his normal workload this week but should have a limited presence in the Buffalo offense. He's worth considering as a RB2 or flex option in certain leagues.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is taking part in warmups before the team's Week 7 game and is looking good, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is expected to have at least a limited role in the offense against the Miami Dolphins but probably will not be able to handle a full workload. He will be a risky option for owners but could be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in certain leagues.

Bills | LeSean McCoy likely to play 25-35 snaps

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 22:18:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is expected to be active in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins, though he could be limited in how much he plays. A source set the range at 25-35 snaps, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: That gives a little more clarity on McCoy's situation, and it's important to read that as snaps and not touches. Clearly, Shady's role will be limited, which erodes his value and brings plenty of risk to the table. If you can plug a steadier play into one of your RB slots, that would be the prudent move.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is expected to be active for the team's Week 7 game and may have at least a limited role in the offense, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will still need to check the inactive list to see if McCoy will be in uniform against the Miami Dolphins. He will be a risky option because of the hamstring injury but could be at least a flex option if he receives touches during the game.

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 12:12:16 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be traveling with the team for their Week 7 game and still has a chance to play, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely will be game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. McCoy may be limited if he is active but would still be a starting option for owners. Mike Gillislee probably would start if McCoy is ruled out and would be an attractive flex option.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:16:29 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely will be a game-time decision, so owners will need to look at the inactive list before they decided on their starting lineups. He may be limited if he is active for the game, which makes him a risky option for owners. Mike Gillislee would be a solid flex option if McCoy is ruled out.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 10:10:49 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be a game-time decision, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy got a limited practice in Friday after suffering the injury on Wednesday and has officially been ruled questionable, but the probability is high he would be limited if he does play. For now, Mike Gillislee is set to receive the bulk of the carries and makes for a fine RB2 against Miami second-worst rush defense.

Bills | LeSean McCoy practicing

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 07:54:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is practicing Friday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Fridays are usually walkthroughs, and it's tough to tell how healthy his hamstring is. There have been multiple reports that he's unlikely to play this week. Even if he goes, you'd have to believe he'd be on some sort of restriction. Mike Gillislee has a 17-117-2 line on the season, and the matchup against the Miami Dolphins is a good one. McCoy is probably going to be a game-time decision, and he's a flex option for now. Gillislee is a flex candidate, but if McCoy is limited, he obviously has upside.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Gillislee has a 17-117-2 line on the season and has a great matchup against the Miami Dolphins. He's a good flex grab for Week 7.

Bills | LeSean McCoy looking like a GTD

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 15:40:04 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be considered a game-time decision for the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 23, according to a person with direct knowledge of the star running back's hamstring injury. Head coach Rex Ryan is "hopeful" that McCoy can play.

Fantasy Tip: Well, luckily, it's one of the early-afternoon games on the slate, so owners will have a chance to get him out of the lineup in case he doesn't suit up. This would be very unfortunate if McCoy has to miss any time, as he's second in the NFL right now with 587 rushing yards, while also scoring seven touchdowns, but it appears it wouldn't be a surprise if he were to miss a week or two at this point. If McCoy can't go this week, Mike Gillislee is lined up to start and would be worth deploying in all formats for his strong potential.

Bills | Medical update on LeSean McCoy

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 18:15:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) suffered a "mild to moderate" hamstring strain Wednesday, Oct. 19, at practice, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: If McCoy is able to play, he will face the league's 31st-ranked rush defense. Shady is a top fantasy option in all formats in Week 7 as long as he is active.

Bills | LeSean McCoy injures hamstring

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 11:39:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during practice Wednesday, Oct. 19, and was not able to finish practice. The team will not know the severity of the injury until McCoy undergoes a medical evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: Owners in all leagues will need to follow the situation because McCoy could miss the team's Week 7 game if the injury is serious. Mike Gillislee likely would start at running back if McCoy is ruled out and could be a flex option in leagues.
