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
Rick Dennison set to become Bills' new OC     -- Thu Jan 19 7:25 pm --

Longtime Broncos OL coach/play-caller
The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team has agreed to terms for Rick Dennison to become the team's offensive coordinator. (

FF Today's Take: After flirting with Greg Olson initially, Buffalo lands a solid veteran play-caller in Dennison, who helped mold some of Denver's great offensive lines in the late 90s. He was the QB coach in Baltimore in 2014 when Tyrod Taylor was still Joe Flacco's backup, so perhaps Taylor will stick around after all. Dennison has been more of a run-oriented play-caller throughout his career, so LeSean McCoy owners should be fine with this hire.
Mike Gillislee to remain goal-line back     -- Thu Dec 8 8:35 pm --

Backup RB already has six scores in 2016
Bills OC Anthony Lynn says Mike Gillislee will continue to get red zone carries. "That's his role," Lynn says, praising Gillislee's decisive running. Gillislee had two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Oakland, getting goal line carries over LeSean McCoy and Jonathan Williams. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The news is a bummer for McCoy's fantasy value but not exactly something that has kept him from being a RB1 all season in one of the run-heaviest offenses in the league. As long as Shady is getting his usual 20-plus touches every week, his RB1 status should be secure.
Injury LeSean McCoy expected to play Week 12     -- Mon Nov 21 9:52 am --

Surgery on broken thumb
Bills' RB LeSean McCoy had a surgical procedure on his thumb today and will be ready to play this Sunday, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: McCoy dislocated his thumb in Week 11 and never returned to the game but it sounds like he's got a chance to play after having a procedure to set his thumb in place. McCoy owners have dodged a bullet.
Injury Rex Ryan confident McCoy will play     -- Sat Nov 5 12:30 pm --

Bills RB listed as Questionable
Rex Ryan says he's confident LeSean McCoy will play Monday night in Seattle. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: McCoy was able to practice this week on a limited basis and it sounds like he'll be a go for Monday night. The Seahawks don't provide a stellar matchup but McCoy should be in line for 20 touches making him a solid RB2.
Percy Harvin signs with Bills     -- Tue Nov 1 11:22 am --

WR emerges from retirement to ink one-year, $1.5M deal
Sports agent Greg Barnett on Twitter: "My client Percy Harvin has come out of retirement to sign with the Buffalo Bills for the remainder of the season!" (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Wow. If this were 2011, the Bills would be looking stacked with LeSean McCoy, Reggie Bush and now Harvin, who will be getting around $1 million prorated. Harvin finished 2015 on IR and mulled a comeback before retiring. He's 28 years old and hasn't been fantasy relevant in years, so he's probably left on the waiver wire until he gets in some games and we see what he can do.
Injury McCoy doubtful, Gillislee expected to start     -- Fri Oct 28 12:30 pm --

Hamstring injury
Bills running back LeSean McCoy didn't practice all week after aggravating his hamstring injury in last Sunday's loss at Miami and is officially listed as doubtful to play this week against the Patriots. "Obviously he never practiced," Rex Ryan said, "so I think you guys can figure that out." (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: Mike Gillislee is expected to get the start and is on the RB2 radar in Week 8 against the Patriots. Reggie Bush and rookie Jonathan Williams will fill backup roles. The Patriots have given up 2 rushing TDs to running backs this season.
Injury LeSean McCoy misses practices Thursday     -- Thu Oct 27 1:00 pm --

Hamstring injury
LeSean McCoy not spotted at start of Bills' practice Thursday. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Rex Ryan went on to say that he's "not real sure" about McCoy playing in Week 8 against the Patriots. Given McCoy was a shell of himself last week, expect Mike Gillislee to get the start.
Injury LeSean McCoy "probably questionable"     -- Mon Oct 24 6:05 pm --

Aggravated hamstring injury
After LeSean McCoy aggravated hamstring Sunday, one source said Bills RB “will be same position this week, probably questionable” for Sunday. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It was apparently obvious to just about everyone except the Bills that resting McCoy after a mid-week hamstring pull was the right move. As a result of pushing Shady to play in Week 7, Buffalo will probably now play the week-to-week game with him instead. Owners should expect McCoy to miss multiple weeks and be thrilled if only misses one or two. Mike Gillislee will start and should be considered a serviceable RB2 in his absence.
