2015 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
Bills' FB thinks McCoy can reach 2000-yard mark     -- Fri Jul 31 4:00 pm --

Uncertainty surrounds former Eagle as he joins new team
"I want him to break records," Bills fullback Jerome Felton said. "I want him to get 2,000 yards. I want him to lead the league in rushing. Him and Adrian are cut from the same cloth. I would be very disappointed if he's not the leading rusher in the league next year, that's for sure." Reaching the 2,000 yard mark is incredibly difficult, but it's not out of the question for McCoy. He piled up 1,607 yards in 2013 on 314 carries. He has averaged a healthy 4.6 yards over the course of his career, and has remained relatively healthy each year - both key factors in rushing for a big number of yards. Having a confident fullback as your lead blocker helps, especially when he's blocked for another 2,000-yard rusher in Adrian Peterson. (Fox)

FF Today's Take: Caution: it can be hard to predict how a star running back will fit in with a new team. LeSean McCoy is an elusive runner who can pound the ball between the tackles or bounce outside and turn on the jets. Historically, he has done a lot of damage receiving the ball as well. He will likely be the focal point of the team's offense this season, and if he stays healthy, should help the Bills improve upon the 92.6 rushing yards they averaged per game last year.
Bills wouldn't mind if McCoy led NFL in carries     -- Thu May 21 5:25 pm --

RB coach would like to cut Fred Jackson's 2014 load in half
LeSean McCoy has led the NFL with 626 carries over the past two years and will be 27 at the start of the season. RB coach Anthony Lynn, though, is confident he can handle a similar workload going forward. “I talk to the guys all the time about Curtis Martin. This guy led the league in rushing his ninth year," Lynn said. “I’d love to see him get that many rushes.” While Lynn would like to see McCoy’s workload stay the same, he’d prefer if Fred Jackson’s was scaled back. Jackson played 548 snaps last season, a number Lynn said he’d like to see cut in half. “I think he wore down a little bit at the end of the season,” Lynn said. “ (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: Given the E.J. Manuel/Matt Cassel/Tyrod Taylor quagmire at quarterback, it would probably be best if Buffalo let McCoy carry the ball as often as possible. Jackson is little more than a McCoy handcuff at this point. Lynn also spoke about the need for Bryce Brown, who is away from the team dealing with a personal matter, to return so the Bills' new coaching staff knows what they are working with there. One year after Buffalo traded for him to be its future feature back, Brown is edging closer to the roster bubble.
