2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a solid season in 2010 in his first year as the Eagles starting running back, McCoy was even better in 2011, rushing for 1,309 yards and 17 touchdowns while chalking up 315 receiving yards and three more scores – good enough to finish as the 2nd ranked fantasy running back. The icing on top of that fabulous fantasy production was that he was remarkably consistent, reaching double digit fantasy points in every game until the Eagles season finale against Dallas. The question is whether McCoy can generate that production again in 2012? First off, the Eagles ran the ball more in 2011 than in previous seasons so a reduction in McCoy’s rushing attempts seems to be in the offing. No issue there since the Eagles have said they plan to get the ball to him more in the passing game to reduce his wear and tear and that seems like a genuine plan given that his receptions dropped from 78 in 2010 to 48 last season. Second, the Eagles have said they plan on giving him more rest but we’ve heard coaches spout that off before and it seems a little disingenuous this time given the team’s backups consistent of diminutive, second year player Dion Lewis (who found himself in some hot water for pulling a fire alarm in the offseason) and a pair of rookies in Bryce Brown and Carlos Polk. Finally, can we expect another 17 rushing touchdowns from McCoy given that quarterback Michael Vick scored just once last season? Probably not. Other than that, McCoy’s got a sunny fantasy outlook for 2012. Nab him as a top five running back and enjoy the show.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury LeSean McCoy practices Friday, questionable     -- Fri Oct 21 11:45 am --

Ryan: "We're not ruling Shady out at all"
LeSean McCoy was front and center in the stretching line at Bills practice Friday and went through some basic pass-catching drills during the portion of practice that was open to media. Receiver Robert Woods and defensive tackle Marcell Dareus were not at the start of Friday's practice. (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: Rex Ryan went on to say: "We're not ruling Shady out at all. We'll be smart with him, but he looked pretty good [today]." It sounds like McCoy will be a gametime decision. If he sits, Mike Gillislee would get the start and be a solid RB2 against the Dolphins defense.
Injury McCoy not expected to play Week 7     -- Thu Oct 20 4:40 pm --

Could miss multiple weeks with hamstring injury
I'm told Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is not playing this Sunday and could miss more time thereafter, depending on healing. (Josina Anderson on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: McCoy also battled hamstring injuries last season as well. Owners should be prepared for a multi-week absence, although there has been no indication yet this injury is anywhere near as serious as the one that sidelined McCoy for four weeks in 2015. Mike Gillislee is the next man up and should be expected to receive a fairly heavy workload, getting the occasional breather from Reggie Bush and Jonathan Williams. Gillislee should be treated as a RB2 until McCoy returns.
Injury LeSean McCoy exits practice early     -- Wed Oct 19 4:06 pm --

Tight hamstring
LeSean McCoy left practice early with a hamstring injury. Bills coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday the running back's hamstring was tight and will be checked by the medical staff. Ryan said he wasn't immediately sure of the severity of the injury. (

FF Today's Take: This is a noteworthy development considering LeSean McCoy's injury history and the Bills reliance on their star rusher. He'll likely miss practice Thursday and be questionable heading into the Bills' week 7 tilt with the Dolphins. Backup Mike Gillislee and his 5.7 YPC would see more touches in the event McCoy is unable to play.
Bills release RB Karlos Williams     -- Sat Aug 20 2:30 pm --

Four-game suspension
The team cut the second-year pro prior to its second preseason game against the New York Giants at New Era Field. Without Williams, the Bills will rely on Reggie Bush, Mike Gillislee, rookie Jonathan Williams and James Wilder Jr. to provide depth behind starter LeSean McCoy. (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: A four-game suspension and showing up to off-season workouts out of shape isn't going to make a good impression. Williams was very productive last season (9 TDs in eleven games) but the Bills have decided to cut ties leaving an unsettled RB group behind LeSean McCoy. Gillislee should get first crack at meaningful snaps.
Bills still talking with Reggie Bush     -- Tue Jul 26 11:15 am --

Source claims deal could still happen sending veteran RB to WNY
From Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk: "After reports emerged linking running back Reggie Bush to the Bills, Bush tapped the brakes. At some point, however, it looks like he’ll be dialing up Western New York on the GPS." Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks between Bush and the Bills continue. The Bills view Bush as a potential option at punt returner and as a replacement/clone of LeSean McCoy, if he needs a break or is injured." (PFT)

FF Today's Take: the Bills really do need to be ready for the four-game suspension imposed recently on running back Karlos Williams, and whether Bush fits after Williams returns from his looming exile is a secondary issue.
