2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
LeSean McCoy thrived in the Chip Kelly offense, rushing for 1,607 yards and nine touchdowns while adding 52 receptions for 540 yards and another two scores through the air. The Eagles finished 13th in plays from scrimmage with their fast-paced offense and will look to speed things up again in 2014. McCoy was a major part of that offense with 314 carries and 52 receptions. There has been some talk of lessening McCoy's load a bit this season, but it's hard to see a major dip especially if the team does manage to run more plays this season than it did last season. McCoy is one of the more exciting players in the league with the ball in his hands and his ability to stop and change directions with unbelievable cuts and jukes is reminiscent of the great Barry Sanders. McCoy's production initially declined when the team made the switch at quarterback from Michael Vick to Nick Foles, but it quickly rounded back into form after a few weeks. McCoy will turn 26 this month, so he's really just entering the peak of his prime years. McCoy is a player to seriously consider as early as the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts this season.

Comment: Sproles and Polk should eat into McCoy's touches but not enough to drop from the ranks of a RB1.

Eagles backfield to stress defenses
McCoy marvels at Sproles' quickness
By: Doug Orth | Wed Jul 16, 3:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
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)

FFToday'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
Eagles possibly looking to lessen reliance on McCoy
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 7, 3:55 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
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, Iíd expect Polk to produce even more as LeSean McCoyís 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 Polkís hands for most of the carries if LeSean McCoy got hurt. It wouldnít shock me if Polk averaged between six to eight touches per game this coming season. For a guy with 11 NFL carries, thatís a hefty increase. (CSN Philly)

FFToday'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
Eagles RT tested positive for PEDs
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 30, 4:05 pm

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

FFToday'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
Former Saint has never had more than 93 carries in a season
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 5, 5:20 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
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)

FFToday'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.
