2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Shady McCoy finished as the #2 RB in overall fantasy points and points/game last year


(+) Has averaged five yards/carry over the past two seasons (30 games)


(+) Had 17 rushing TDs and 20 in total, making him just the 22nd player ever with 20+ total TDs in a single-season


(+) Had at least one TD in 13 of 15 games last season


(+) Despite dropping slightly below the 50-catch mark in 2011 (48), we fully expect 60+ catches this year like he did in 2010 (78)


(+) Can hit pay dirt any time he touches the ball


(+) Gets all the goal-line carries for the Eagles and does well with them, as evidenced by his nine rushing TDs from the one or two-yard line last season (also had one receiving from that distance)


(–) With only maybe a middle-tier backup RB on their roster, the Eagles may feel forced to keep McCoy healthy at all costs


(–) Though not bad, he only had six 100-yard games in 2011


(–) Being a smaller guy that gets a lot of touches, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him break down if the Eagles over-use him

2009 Review

For a speedy second-round draft pick that was put into a great situation with every chance to succeed, rookie LeSean McCoy turned in quite a disappointing season in 2009.  With Brian Westbrook shelved by injuries most of the year, McCoy was given every opportunity to show the Eagles he could play at the next level, but instead, he flaunted the many areas of his game that people thought he might need work on coming into the league.  First of all, he can’t block worth a crap.  As an NFL running back, in order to keep yourself out on the field, you absolutely must have that skill as part of your repertoire.  Second, he was awful in short-yardage situations, which is yet another essential to staying on the field.  McCoy did show to have Westbrook-like qualities though, as he caught 40 passes out of the backfield on the year.  Nonetheless, his rookie campaign left a bunch of questions on the table and with regards to his favorable circumstance, a lot to be desired.


~  Ranked 36th in the league with 116.5 RB fantasy points (basic scoring system)


~  Tied for 31st in the league with 4 rushing touchdowns


~  Tied for 93rd in the league with 4 total touchdowns


~  Tied for 35th in the league with 637 rushing yards


~  Tied for 43rd in the league with 39.8 rushing yards per game


~  Ranked 32nd in the league with 155 attempts


~  Tied for 68th in the league with 1 rushes of 20+ yards


~  Tied for 38th in the league with 28 rushes for first downs


~  Lost 2 fumbles on the year


~  Tied for 16th among running backs with 40 receptions


~  Ranked 17th among running backs with 308 receiving yards


~  Set career bests in every major statistical rushing and receiving category

2010 Fantasy Outlook

LeSean didn’t do much with his grand opportunity last season, but he’ll get another shot at stardom come 2010.  The Eagles offense is built for an RB with his skills, as long as someone taught him how to block in the offseason.  Philly’s West Coast style of play turned Westbrook into a fantasy monster over his career, and McCoy fits that mold to a T.  His only competition for playing time will be from Mike Bell and Leonard Weaver, so he should have ample room to run wild out there.  Being in the top 3-5 RBs in receptions should be a lock, but his one big fantasy drawback will be in the TD arena as Bell and Weaver will take those all year.  1,500 total yards is within his reach, but he’s much better suited for PPR leagues than anything else as 1,000 rushing yards is iffy and 100-yard games will be scarce.


~ Westbrook is gone, so the starting job is his to do what he will with it


~ His blocking and short-yardage deficiencies have to change for him to make a serious fantasy impact


~ Mike Bell will start to steal some playing time if McCoy falters at all


~ Defenses can’t stack the box due to the Eagles excellent receiving corps

Injury Report

Yellow

McCoy is going to be an injury risk in the NFL. If he thinks that he can stop and dance before turning the corner on tosses and sweeps, he is going to get his clock cleaned by pursuing LBs and DEs. His tendency to stop and juke will get him a couple of hard hits by season’s end, and his small size further increases his risk for injury.
The most troubling sign of potential injury trouble, however, is that McCoy shattered his ankle in 2006, requiring major surgery to repair. Though his college career went without incident, major injuries such as broken bones are highly susceptible to re-injury. McCoy’s flashy running style, small size, and injury history are factors that put him at a moderately high risk for injury

McCoy says he is the best running back

Coming off of arguably the best season of his career, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did not hold back on ESPN when asked if he was the best running back in the NFL.

"Yes sir," McCoy responded.

McCoy has never been one to lack in confidence, but a look at the numbers says he might be right.

McCoy finished last season with a league-leading 1,607 rushing yards, close to 300 yards more than Matt Forte of the Chicago Bears, who finished second. With 540 yards receiving as well, McCoy finished with 2,147 total yards -- an Eagles franchise record for yards from scrimmage.

"The last three years, I've been All-Pro first-team twice," McCoy explained. "I never leave the field. I block, I catch. I don't have anybody else do my job -- I do it myself."

When asked about his closest competition, McCoy made sure to give credit to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

"My brother always messes with me when I say I'm the best. He goes 'Did Adrian Peterson retire?" McCoy said. "(Peterson) has been doing it for so long. I'm a big fan of his for sure."

But?

"I'm the best," McCoy said.

Pyro's take: McCoy has been great, and last season was a monster year for him. I will give him that in Chip Kelly's offense he was used extremely well. The biggest problem with this statement, is that I believe the best running back changes almost every year. In fact, I would make the argument that Jamaal Charles was the best back 2013. Don't be too upset by that, as I currently have you as my top rated back for 2014.

McCoy a deadly weapon this week

Q: LeSean, his numbers are better each quarter, first, second, third, fourth quarter. How much of that do you think is him getting stronger or staying strong and the O‑line?

Kelly: Good question, I think it's a combination of all that. I think obviously there is a cumulative effect as the game goes along. I also think your guys up front have to continue to do what they are doing.

At times it doesn't matter how strong the running back is, if we are not strong up front we are not going to get any initial push at the line of scrimmage. Therefore, it's going to be a little bit difficult so it is a combination of both of that.

Q: How tough do you think he is to defend against? He can catch the ball and he obviously can run the ball. If you're on the other team trying to stop this guy, how tough does he make it?

Kelly: He's a tough matchup because you can use him in the passing game and he does have good hands and he can run routes. He had a big play for us in the Chargers game on just a short little three‑ or four‑yard option route that he turned into a 60‑yard gain down the goal line. He is a tough matchup. Some of these guys are runners and other guys are really good receivers out of the backfield but I think he's a combination of both.

Pyro's take: McCoy has had some monster games this season, but last week was snowtactular. McCoy will not be able to run around in the snow this week, as the Eagles will be in the Metrodome.

The Vikings have been extremely poor on defense this season, and with Adrian Peterson most likely missing this game, they could be on field a lot Sunday. Shady should continue to help lead the way in your fantasy playoffs, and if you are playing against him...sorry.

Shady with a tough match-up this week

While the Lions defense has been vulnerable against the pass, it is an elite unit against the run and has particularly ramped up its performance in that area since the first month of the season. The Lions run defense ranks third the in the NFL and only gives up 82.7 yards per game, while the Eagles run offense still ranks second in the league at 146.8 yards per game despite being less explosive than usual in recent weeks.

“It’s going to be a good battle,” Schwartz said. “We’ve played the run very well lately and really all year. Earlier in the season our run stats weren’t that good because we gave up a few big plays (but then would shut teams down the rest of the game). Particularly these last six or seven games we’ve shut down some good run teams and pretty good running backs. We have a great challenge ahead of us in LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown and even Nick Foles – Foles will pull the ball and run it. It’s going to be a great challenge. We’ve faced similar schemes in the past – well, it’s a similar philosophy but a different scheme when you talk about the Redskins and what (Robert Griffin III) does. That’s obviously going to be a big part of this game because they’re committed to the run and it sets up a lot of the stuff that they do, and we’ve been a team that’s been good against the run.”

Pyro's take: If you are starting the playoffs and are going against McCoy you can feel pretty good. The Lions have not given up over 100 yards rushing in a game since week 6.

Shady is going to have trouble finding running lanes this week. His best chance for production will be in the passing game, but you can forget about him having a blow up week. It is more likely he get blown up this week.

With Westbrook's release, McCoy gets the nod

The Philadelphia Eagles decided to cut ties with former All-Pro running back Brian Westbrook and released him on Tuesday. Westbrook played his entire eight-year career with the Eagles and leaves the franchise ranking 1st in yards from scrimmage (9,785), 2nd in rushing yards (5,995), 3rd in rushing TDs (37), 3rd in receptions (426), 10th in receiving yards (3,790), and 10th in receiving TDs (29).

Pyro's take: Westy still has a ton of talent and can probably still produce at the NFL level, it just won't be for the Eagles. His injury woes are too concerning for the team's management at this point, so LeSean McCoy will get the chance in 2010 to take over for Westbrook as the starting RB of the future.
The 30-year old running back has already stated that he will not be retiring, so we'll see where the multi-talented RB shows up soon enough.

McCoy looks to be starting for a few weeks

According to Eagles coach Andy Reid, running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) will be out of action for at least the next three weeks of the season.

Pyro's take: This was expected and definitely the best thing for Westy's long-term health. However, his absence opens the door for rookie RB LeSean McCoy to put his stamp on the starting job not just for the rest of this year, but for the future as well. With games against the Bears, Redskins, and Falcons (all three in the lower third of the league in rush D) over the next three weeks, McCoy could end up being a nice RB2 for your fantasy football team.

McCoy looks to be main man with Westbrook out

Eagles rookie running back LeSean McCoy looks set to get the bulk of the work in the backfield with Brian Westbrook (concussion) out indefinitely. Leonard Weaver could factor into the action as well as the team's fullback.

Pyro's take: Westbrook has been sorely missed this year as the Eagles don't seem able to get in sync on offense with him either out, hobbled, or simply just not playing well. McCoy has a bright future, but at this point is merely a flex on your fantasy football team.

McCoy likely to see split carries this weekend

Eagles coach Andy Reid held running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) out of practice on Friday, but fully expects him to be ready for the game on Sunday.
"[Westbrook] has taken every rep for the last two days here," Reid said. "We've been rotating {Westbrook and McCoy], so that's what we will continue to do."

Pyro's take: Westy is listed as questionable on the injury report, but he should be able to go. Expect a split of the action between him and rookie LeSean McCoy, and either one could be used as a flex option this week on your fantasy football team.

McCoy misses practice with the flu

Eagles rookie running back LeSean McCoy missed Wednesday's practice with a "severe case of the flu" according to Sal Paolantonio of ESPN.

Pyro's take: McCoy is still expected to play on Sunday, but you might want to check back throughout the week in case you were going to start him at the flex position on your fantasy football team.

Rookie McCoy gets RBBC mate back

Unless there is a setback over the next few days, Eagles running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) has been cleared by team doctors to participate in practice and get back into live game action immediately.

Pyro's take: We'll see how he responds in practice the next couple of days, but Westy looks like he's good to go this Sunday night against the Cowboys. He and LeSean McCoy will most likely see a time-share at RB for a bit, but both can be used on your fantasy football team as at least a flex play each week.

Westbrook still not practicing

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) sat out practice once again on Thursday.

Pyro's take: It doesn't look good for old Westy this weekend. LeSean McCoy will pick up the slack if the Eagles decide to keep him out for a week or two to recover from his concussion last Monday. McCoy is a decent flex option on your fantasy football team if he gets the start.

Still looking like McCoy will start in Week 8

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook (concussion) missed practice on Wednesday and is still being listed as "day-to-day".

Pyro's take: Westy was knocked completely unconscious Monday night and experienced some memory loss, so the likelihood of him playing Sunday is extremely low. Rookie LeSean McCoy will take over and could be a decent flex play for your fantasy football team this weekend.

10/28/09, 11:30 AM CDT by Dawgmaticå

Rookie McCoy in line to start in Week 8

Eagles running back Brian Westbrook suffered a concussion in last night's game against Washington and doesn't look to be in the lineup next week against the Giants. LeSean McCoy would get the start if Westbrook can't go.

Pyro's take: McCoy has the skills, but would likely be a bit overwhelmed against the Giants in a hard-nosed, inner-division match-up. He would be a decent flex option on your fantasy football squad, but we wouldn't be able to advise more than that.

10/27/09, 09:45 AM CDT by Dawgmaticå

McCoy looking at reduced role going forward

"I think I can carry the load," said Eagles running back Brian Westbrook. "I think I have the ability to go out there and touch the ball 20, 25 times a game. I haven't had the opportunity yet, so really you don't know for sure 110 percent until you have the opportunity."

Pyro's take: He'll get his opportunity now, as the Eagles schedule only gets tougher from here on out. Coach Andy Reid will need him to be the Westy of old just to get to the playoffs, so look for LeSean McCoy to take a back seat to the fantasy football juggernaut going forward.

10/23/09, 11:00 AM CDT by Dawgmaticå

Westbrook and McCoy to split touches for now

According to coach Andy Reid, Eagles running back tandem of Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy will continue to share the load for the foreseeable future. "We'll do that as long as we need to," Reid said.

Pyro's take: As long as the team is winning, the Eagles will try to keep Westbrook fresh, but that won't last for long. The schedule gets tougher after this next game, and Westy will be needed. Keep using him as your fantasy football RB2.

10/13/09, 02:15 PM CDT by Dawgmaticå

McCoy likely to rotate with Westbrook on Sunday

After taking the entire bye week off to get healthy, Eagles running back Brian Westbrook (ankle) will return to the field and play against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Westy was expected to be back this week, but look for the Eagles to rotate him and LeSean McCoy a bunch going forward as the team can ill-afford to lose their star RB for anymore time than they already have. Westbrook is still a good RB2 fantasy football play this Sunday.

10/07/09, 01:00 PM CDT by Dawgmaticå

LeSean McCoy to split time with Westbrook?

Eagles coach Andy Reid hinted on Monday that in order to keep his No. 1 tailback healthy, the Philadelphia backfield could move towards a RBBC for the remainder of the year using rookie LeSean McCoy in a rotation with Brian Westbrook.

Pyro's take: McCoy looked real good on Sunday with Westbrook sitting out. The Eagles would be smart to rest him as much as possible if they want to make a run in the playoffs this year. If this happens, expect Westy's fantasy numbers to take a hit.

Eagles release Lorenzo Booker

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Saturday that they have waived RB Lorenzo Booker.

Pyro's take: This would make LeSean McCoy the new backup RB to Brian Westbrook this year. Make sure you grab the young McCoy in your draft as Westbrook's handcuff for 2009.

LeSean McCoy doesn't do much against Colts

Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB LeSean McCoy rushed the ball five times for just four yards against the Colts last night, but did have three catches out of the backfield for 31 yards.

Pyro's take: After a stellar performance in the first preseason game, McCoy came back down to earth a bit this past game. He's still the guy to grab as your handcuff to Brian Westbrook, but let this game serve as a reminder that Westy is still the stud of the team and won't be supplanted for any reason besides injury.

No one more impressive than McCoy

Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB LeSean McCoy was the most impressive offensive player for the Eagles in their first preseason game. McCoy rushed the ball 10 times for 55 yards with a long of 16, added a couple of receptions for 12 yards, and was great in picking up the blitz.

Pyro's take: This kid has all the makings of a future stud in the league, much in the way of his teammate Brian Westbrook. He's a shifty runner, isn't shy of contact, can catch the ball well, and is getting better and better at picking up the blitz as well. We can't stress enough how important it is to make sure you grab McCoy if you own Westbrook on your team. He could be one of the best handcuffs to have once all is said and done this year.

Booker not a lock to make roster

Philadelphia Eagles RB Lorenzo Booker has been a virtual bust since the Eagles traded for him on draft day, 2008. He only had 26 touches last year, gaining 64 yards, and has been dropping passes left and right coming out of the backfield during training camp this year. "He's got good hands," head coach Andy Reid said. "I'm not sure what the deal is. He dropped a couple yesterday and a couple today. He'll work through that."

Pyro's take: The Eagles only gave up a fourth-round draft choice to pry him from Miami before the 2008 season, so there's not too much invested in him. It's clear that rookie LeSean McCoy is going to be the handcuff to Brian Westbrook this year, not the meek, underachieving Booker this season.
