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
Polk becoming Eagles' new goal-line back     -- Thu Dec 18 4:00 pm --

Eagles own one of the worst red-zone offenses in NFL
It appears Chris Polk has become the Eagles' goal-line specialist. He played three snaps against the Cowboys Sunday and two were short rushing touchdowns. On another snap inside the 5, Darren Sproles got the carry and scored. LeSean McCoy led the NFL in rushing last year and is on pace for 1,293 yards this year, fourth-most in the NFL. But the Eagles have struggled in the red zone all year, and the Eagles believe Polk’s size and power give him an advantage through traffic near the end zone. The switch from McCoy to Polk deep in the red zone has helped the Eagles address what was the worst red-zone offense in the NFL through 12 games. (CSN Philly)

FF Today's Take: In his six-year career, McCoy has 64 carries inside the 5-yard line with 24 touchdowns and 24 runs for no gain or a loss. Polk is a free agent at the end of the year, so it is quite possible that McCoy gets another chance next season. For now, McCoy needs to be considered a RB2 with RB1 upside in the right matchup.
Injury Nick Foles (broken collarbone) out 6-8 weeks     -- Tue Nov 4 9:40 am --

Mark Sanchez to assume reins to offense
McLane posted "Looks more and more like Mark Sanchez at QB for the rest of the #Eagles season and possibly the playoffs." Both McLane and ESPN's Adam Schefter set Foles' timetable at 6-8 weeks, and that may even be on the optimistic side. Coming in cold off the bench Sunday, Sanchez completed 4-of-4 targets to Jeremy Maclin for gains of 52, 7, 21, and an eight-yard touchdown. Sanchez struggles to throw the ball outside the numbers, however, which could put a dent in Riley Cooper's already limited fantasy appeal. (Twitter (Jeff McLane))

FF Today's Take: McLane is the Eagles beat writer for the Philly Inquirer, and Chip Kelly sounded Monday as if Sanchez had a tenuous lock on the starting job the rest of the way. Given Sanchez's checkdown game, it's likely that we'll see more Zach Ertz and receptions for RBs LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles going forward. Sanchez is worth an add in all formats in this potent offense.
