2014 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
Eagles backfield to stress defenses     -- Wed Jul 16 3:15 pm --

McCoy marvels at Sproles' quickness
Darren Sproles' role in Chip Kelly's offense will be one of the intriguing plot lines as we encroach upon training camp. "Sproles has the quickest feet I've ever seen out of any player," McCoy said. "He'll help us out tremendously. I think the best thing about him, what he brings to this team is not only leadership and experience, but also just another big playmaker on the team. You talk about losing DeSean (Jackson), but I think Howie (Roseman) and Chip did a great job of bringing another playmaker to our team." (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Instead of feeling threatened or challenged by the addition of another veteran running back, LeSean McCoy is excited to share the backfield with another playmaker. In fact, no other running back tandem in the NFL boasts the combined explosive running and pass-catching abilities of LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles. They should be the focal point of Chip Kelly's dynamic offense this season but fantasy owners should keep a close eye on how often they see the field together where they will be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.
Polk may be in line for regular touches     -- Mon Jul 7 3:55 pm --

Eagles possibly looking to lessen reliance on McCoy
One of the few guys on offense who can expand his role in 2014 is Chris Polk, and given the success he had last year, I’d expect Polk to produce even more as LeSean McCoy’s backup than Bryce Brown did last year. Even though the Eagles traded for Darren Sproles this offseason, they almost surely would put the ball in Polk’s hands for most of the carries if LeSean McCoy got hurt. It wouldn’t shock me if Polk averaged between six to eight touches per game this coming season. For a guy with 11 NFL carries, that’s a hefty increase. (CSN Philly)

FF Today's Take: Polk made enough of an impression on the Eagles last year that they were willing to part with Brown. Even so, with McCoy and Sproles in front of him, the six to eight weekly touches probably represents Polk's ceiling than his 2014 if everyone stays relatively healthy. Nevertheless, Polk makes sense as the most likely handcuff for McCoy.
Lane Johnson suspended four games     -- Mon Jun 30 4:05 pm --

Eagles RT tested positive for PEDs
Per league sources: RT Lane Johnson has tested positive for PEDs and will miss first four games. (Paul Domowitch on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Johnson graded out well as a run blocker in his rookie season according to Pro Football Focus, but gave up 10 sacks. The Eagles signed Allen Barbre to a three-year extension earlier this month, so he will likely get the first shot at replacing Johnson at right tackle. While the passing game doesn't figure to fall off significantly during Johnson's absence, it is possible LeSean McCoy's numbers take a slight hit.
Sproles running as McCoy's direct backup     -- Thu Jun 5 5:20 pm --

Former Saint has never had more than 93 carries in a season
Darren Sproles will turn 31 in June and averaged 4.2 yards per carry last season, the second-worst mark of his career. But during the two OTAs that were open to the media, he took almost all the reps with the second team at running back. He's yet to take reps as a slot receiver (from what we've seen). With the Bryce Brown trade, the question of what the Eagles' plan will be should LeSean McCoy go down needs an answer this summer. Given his frame and age, Sproles doesn't seem like a viable option to carry the load; he's never had more than 93 carries in a season. (Philly Mag: Birds 24/7)

FF Today's Take: McCoy played all 16 games in 2013 for the first time since his rookie year, so the Eagles do need to find his direct backup. Chris Polk was beginning to emerge near the end of the season, but underwent what was reported as "major" shoulder surgery in the offseason. In the event of a long-term McCoy injury, Polk would likely become the lead back and Sproles would remain the passing-down back.
