|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.

Off-duty officers injured in incident
|Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and former NFL running back Curtis Brinkley were involved in an altercation with three off-duty Philadelphia police officers at an Old City nightclub this weekend. Just before noon on Monday, the Bills released the following statement: "We are aware of the reports regarding LeSean McCoy and in the process of gathering more information. We will not provide any further comment at this time." (CSNPhilly.com)|
FF Today's Take: At this point no arrests have been made but a police investigation is on-going. Stay tuned...
|Charles Clay out, Williams expected to start -- Fri Dec 25 9:00 pm --|
Bills will be without their starting TE
|Barring any setbacks with his shoulder I’d 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)|
FF Today'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.

Likely out Week 16

FF Today'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.

FF Today'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.
