2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
To say that 2018 was a disappointment for Shady McCoy would be a gross understatement. The former fantasy stud dealt with offseason domestic issues and was limited to just 14 games due to injury.

His 6.7 fantasy points per game were the worst of his career and the first time since his rookie campaign in which he failed to post double-digit FPts/G. At age 31, McCoy is getting up there in age for running backs, and the best is certainly behind him. However, should he make the roster and not be a trade or cap casualty, Shady could be one of the better late-round running back options.

The Bills have the most talent at wide receiver since the departure of Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins, and Josh Allen's rushing ability will make it difficult for defenses to zero in on McCoy.

McCoy is a high-risk, high-reward player with a sizable range of outcomes that could include RB2 production, or he could be released in favor of third-round pick Devin Singletary.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Tyreek Hill out, Damien Williams expected to play
Crowded RB room in KC
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 4, 2:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Tyreek Hill will not play for the Chiefs in Sunday night's game against the Colts. He will be listed as out on the final injury report of the week. "He got out and mixed it up and worked in some team periods,'' coach Andy Reid said of Hill's practice week. "He did a nice job but he's just not ready to go yet . . . He wants to play but at the same time it's not your normal injury that you have. We've just got to make sure that he's right and you don't have any setbacks.'' (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Tyreek Hill will sit out another week with his chest injury but it's possible he could return in Week 6. The Chiefs will head into the Colts game with all three of Damien Williams, LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams available making it difficult for fantasy owners to trust any of them in Week 5 lineups.


Injury Tyreek Hill, Damien Williams practicing
WR limited, RB practicing in full
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 3, 7:20 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was limited in practice again, while Damien Williams (knee) practiced in full for a second straight day Thursday. (chiefs.com)

FFToday's Take: It seems unlikely Hill will play this week after being out since Week 1, but it's a good sign for his Week 6 prospects. The real intrigue is in the backfield. Williams began the season as the starter but did virtually nothing on the ground before getting hurt. LeSean McCoy's role is the most secure, but he has registered no more than 11 carries in a game. Darrel Williams has played too well for HC Andy Reid to bench. Owners are advised to sit tight until this thing sorts itself out.


Injury Damien Williams misses practice Thursday
Trending towards missing Week 4
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 26, 12:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Damien Williams will again not practice for the Chiefs today. Looking like a second straight week off for him. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams missed Week 3 with a knee injury and appears to be headed for a similar fate in Week 4. That would leave the running back duties to LeSean McCoy (ankle) and Darrel Williams with Williams being the healthiest of the two. Both will be Flex considerations against the Lions.


Injury Damien Williams out, McCoy practices Friday
More opportunities for Darwin Thompson
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 20, 3:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Rookie running back Darwin Thompson played a handful of snaps in the Chiefs’ first two games but his first significant playing time could come on Sunday against the Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium. Starter Damien Williams will not play because of a knee injury, so there’s some playing time available. LeSean McCoy appears he will be ready to play but the Chiefs are likely to be cautious about overloading him. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Williams out, the Chiefs will head into Week 3 with McCoy, Thompson and Darrell Williams at running back. McCoy got in a full practice on Friday and is expected to start. McCoy feels like a low-end RB2 given his ankle injury while Thompson is more of a flex option against the Ravens.


Injury Kansas City RBs struggling to get healthy
Damien Williams has yet to practice; LeSean McCoy limited Thursday
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 19, 11:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Damien Williams has not practiced Wednesday or Thursday due to a bruised knee and was "limping considerably." LeSean McCoy (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. (NFL Network - James Palmer)

FFToday's Take: HC Andy Reid mentioned earlier in the week that he wants to make sure he can trust rookie Darwin Thompson with his assignments before he gives him significant playing time. He may not have a choice if things continue down this path. Make no mistake; if Thompson gets a chance to prove he's ready and performs as well as he did during the preseason, there's a solid chance he will force his way into the mix. Thompson needs to be rostered in all the most shallow of leagues right now.


Injury Damien Williams misses practice Wednesday
LeSean McCoy may give it a go
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 18, 12:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
LeSean McCoy (ankle) will try and practice today and Damien Williams (knee) will not practice, per Andy Reid. (BJ Kissel on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Andy Reid described Williams' injury as a bruise on his knee. He gave the impression that McCoy would try and do a little bit in practice, giving the impression he'll likely be labeled as "limited" on Wednesday. If either one of the two Chiefs' RBs sits this week, Darwin Thompson would likely see increased snaps.


Injury LeSean McCoy's MRI shows no significant damage
Chiefs veteran RB "has a shot" to play Sunday
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 17, 8:55 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) on Twitter: "#Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy’s MRI showed no significant damage to his ankle, sources say, and he has a shot to play in Sunday’s AFC showdown with the #Ravens." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McCoy apparently has a "shot" to play in Sunday's Week 3 showdown against the Ravens, but there's no word on the status of Damien Williams, who's injury has been listed as both knee and groin in different reports. Stay tuned, because rookie Darwin Thompson could get few more touches and vault into flex status if either back sits. Williams would be a RB2/3 if he plays and McCoy will assume his normal RB3/FLEX status if he's active.


Injury Chiefs RBs banged up in Week 2
LeSean McCoy, Damien Williams go down late
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 16, 5:20 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs RB Damien Williams left with a right knee contusion. RB LeSean McCoy left late with an ankle injury. (Chiefs Digest)

FFToday's Take: For as much as Patrick Mahomes doing for the passing game, the running game has been a bit lacking. Williams has produced as a receiver so far, but he's mustered a mere 34 yards on 22 carries through two games. McCoy was very good in the opener but bottled up in Week 2. Should either player be forced to sit out Week 3, fantasy owners might get a chance to see what preseason star Darwin Thompson could do in more of a full-time role.


Chiefs bring in LeSean McCoy
One-year, $3 million guaranteed
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 31, 11:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Former Bills’ RB LeSean McCoy is reuniting with Chiefs HC Andy Reid, per source. McCoy getting a one-year, $4 million deal that includes $3 million guaranteed from the Chiefs. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs were a handful of teams that were linked to McCoy once he was released along with the Chargers, Eagles and Patriots. This moves puts a damper on the fantasy value of Damien Williams and fantasy community darling Darwin Thompson.


Bills release RB LeSean McCoy
Fire up Devin Singletary
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 31, 9:05 am

Buffalo Bills
Surprise cut: Bills are releasing LeSean McCoy, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Buffalo was expected to release a running back but most thought it would T.J. Yeldon. By releasing McCoy it signals the Bills are impressed enough with Devin Singletary to make him a part of their offense in 2019. With Frank Gore and Yeldon still in the mix, Singletary won't be a workhorse but he's the favorite to lead the Bills in RB touches. There are a couple RB-needy teams out there (HOU, TB) so expected McCoy to land a job soon.


Frank Gore still ticking away, added to NFI list
Veteran RB "fine," competing for snaps
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 23, 8:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN: "I'm told Bills RB Frank Gore is "fine" despite being added to the Non Football Injury list. This is an effort to limit the wear on his body in what will be his 15th NFL season. Expect increased opportunity for 2019 third-round pick Devin Singletary." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Frank Gore is 36 years old and won't get too many snaps behind starter LeSean McCoy & Singletary, a rookie who has impressed his peers and coaches. Singletary makes for an excellent dynasty pick in such an old backfield. It's hard to know how this things will shake out this season, but Singletary could be the starter by 2020.
