2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
In one of the more shocking off-season deals in recent memory, perennial first-round fantasy running back LeSean McCoy was traded by Chip Kelly and the Eagles to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso. The former Eagle joins a backfield in Buffalo that contains veteran stalwart Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown, and fifth-round pick Karlos Williams from Florida State.

McCoy will be the primary tailback with Fred Jackson also receiving a decent amount of carries. As a run-first team that will attempt to shorten the game and control the clock with a menacing ground attack, there should be more than enough carries for McCoy and Jackson. At age 26, McCoy is still relatively young despite having 1461 carries on his legs. He enters 2015 as a disgruntled player looking to prove his old team wrong by bouncing back from the lowest touchdown total of his career (16 games, only 5 rushing TDs).

In addition, the absence of C.J. Spiller via free agency to the Saints opens the door for McCoy to regain the lost production in third-down receptions that he experienced last season in Philadelphia. Whoever ends up winning the starting role at quarterback for the Bills will lean on McCoy in the passing game as a dump off receiver and third-down threat. Fantasy owners that were burned by McCoys drastic drop in production in 2014 will likely steer clear, opening the door for owners drafting in the later spots in the first round to get excellent value. Although the predicted poor quarterback play may allow teams to load up the box against the run game, sheer volume will allow McCoy to produce top ten fantasy production this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Charles Clay out, Williams expected to start
Bills will be without their starting TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 25, 9:00 pm

Buffalo Bills
Barring any setbacks with his shoulder Id expect Karlos Williams to start in place of LeSean McCoy. Mike Gillislee will have a role however on Sunday serving as a complement to Williams. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: It's important to note that Williams starting is the opinion of Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com and in no way is it an official statement from the team. That being said, we can expect Williams to receive at least a 60-40 split of the touches with Gillislee on the lower end of the RBBC. Williams is a RB2 against the Cowboys.


Injury LeSean McCoy suffers MCL injury, week to week
Likely out Week 16
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 21, 2:00 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills RB LeSean McCoy tore his MCL and is considered week to week for final two weeks, per league source. More testing scheduled for today. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bills will likely turn to a committee running back approach against Dallas in Week 16 with Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee doing the heavy lifting. The Cowboys are giving up the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Karlos Williams (shoulder) spotted wearing sling
LeSean McCoy should get full workload in Week 13

Buffalo Bills
ESPN reporter Mike Rodak said Bills RB Karlos Williams (shoulder) is wearing a sling in the locker room Tuesday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This means that LeSean McCoy should be upgraded to an RB1 against the Texans this week. He'll likely receive a full workload and is a must-play in all formats, even against the surging Texans.


Injury Bills' McCoy and Watkins probable to play
Offensive line banged up
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 11, 3:20 pm

Buffalo Bills
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is expected to play, though it's uncertain who will be available to block for him against the New York Jets on Thursday night. The Bills on Wednesday listed McCoy's status as probable after he was limited in practice because of a sore right shoulder. Receiver Sammy Watkins (left ankle) and defensive end Mario Williams (calf) are listed as probable. (AP - Sport)

FFToday's Take: It looks like Buffalo will two of its biggest play makers available for Thursday night's tilt with the Jets. LeSean McCoy (shoulder) will likely split time with Karlos Williams leaving their fantasy outlooks less than desirable on a short week. Sammy Watkins is coming off a huge performance against Miami will no doubt receive the "Revis Island" treatment. It may be tough to sit Watkins with so many teams on bye but fantasy owners may want to consider other options with greater upside.


Injury Rex Ryan believes McCoy will play Thursday
Bills coach reportedly "not real sure" of RB's role
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 10, 11:38 am

Buffalo Bills
ESPN Bills beat reporter Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) on Twitter: "Rex Ryan says he believes LeSean McCoy will play Thursday. 'How significant his role will be? Im not real sure right now.' (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: That's not necessarily very clear news of McCoy's touches, but the shoulder strain, as it's being called, likely means a larger workload for rookie RB Karlos Williams, who's been magnificent when healthy. Both backs should be considered RB2s until a clear picture emerges.
