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


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

Rex Ryan said Monday the Bills will "err on the side of caution" regarding LeSean McCoy's (MCL) Week 17 status.


Pyro's take: Joe Buscaglia via Twitter "#Bills HC Rex Ryan: Not sure on McCoy, but if it's going to limit him, then we'll err on the side of caution."

McCoy vs. Kelly round 2


Pyro's take: "I mean, you all know who's next," McCoy said.

"It's gonna be special," Ryan said. "There's no question, it'll be special. We're not gonna send him out for warm-ups. Maybe that's what we need to do. But no, I think obviously it's gonna be special. He cares a great deal about a lot of those guys over there. His teammates and things, and you know what that community means to him, and he's a Pennsylvania guy. So obviously that's gonna be a huge game for him."

LeSean McCoy rushed 19 times for 112 yards adding five receptions for 47 additional yards.


Pyro's take: The only thing McCoy didnt do was score a touchdown. He displayed his talents all over the field as he blasted the Jets run defense. "Shady" is back and dominant once again,

Rex Ryan now says he expects LeSean McCoy (shoulder) to be 100 percent for Thursday's game against the Jets.


Pyro's take: Mike Rodak mentioned via Twitter "Bills RB Karlos Williams says he expects LeSean McCoy (shoulder) to play Thursday night and to be 100 percent. "

LeSean McCoy may be limited depending on his health, and with Karlos Williams in the back field the Bills can rest McCoy. I would take caution on both McCoy and Williams due to the tough match up against the New York Jets.

Rex Ryan considers LeSean McCoy (shoulder) day to day.


Pyro's take: Joe Buscaglia reported via Twitter "HC Rex Ryan: We'll see how this week goes with LeSean McCoy."

Issues I see is that McCoy has a short week, and Karlos Williams is healthy, if he can get through those two barriers, consider him a RB2 against the Jets

Buffalo Busting with RB Action


Pyro's take: McCoy was banged up with a shoulder injury during Week 9, although he says he would have gone in at the end, had it been closer, but there was no need. Well, that, on Karlos Williams. McCoy finished with 112 yards, two more than Karlos, except it took McCoy 7 more tries. Oh, another thing, Karlos double MCCoy's TD total with 2.

McCoy Will Play in Week 6


Pyro's take: McCoy will make his return in Week 6. The back has not played since Week 3. He faces a Bengals team that just surrendered 169 yards to Rawles last week.

McCoy Inactive in Week 5

Pyro's take: There is a litany of inactives in Buffalo: Watkins, McCoy, Karlos Williams. Harvin and Dixon should be asked to step up, maybe even a little Herron, although he is still learning the playbook.

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice 10/07/15


Pyro's take: ESPN reporter Mike Rodak has mentioned via twitter "LeSean McCoy, not practicing Wednesday for Bills"

More than likely McCoy will be out for week 5, be prepared to go in a different direction.

Rex Ryan conceded Wednesday that LeSean McCoy is almost certainly out for Week 4.


Pyro's take: Rex Ryan to @WFAN660 on LeSean McCoy vs. NYG: “I’m telling everybody, ‘Oh yeah, he’s got a great chance,’ but we all know he doesn’t."

Another week down the tubes for "Shady" Its getting to that time to call LeSean McCoy a bust.

If you do own LeSean McCoy or are in the market for a running back, look toward Karlos Williams. He has a chance to start showcasing himself this week against the Giants.

Not the news that fantasy owners wanted to hear. He did some things well against Indianapolis, but was not used in goal line situations. He finished the day with 17 carries for only 41-yards (2.4 yards per carry average)

McCoy Looking Good

LeSean McCoy looked like his original self last night against the New York Giants. Catching the ball, making players miss, and breaking tackles. "changing directions with stutter-step moves that left defenders grasping and letting the stadium lights sparkle off the silver soles of his cleats. By the end of the first half, McCoy had 85 yards on 12 carries, more yardage than he had gained in any full game this season. By the end of the game he had 149 yards on 22 carries, his first 100-yard game of the season."

With LeSean McCoy running well it took pressure off of Nick Foles. The Eagles ran the ball nine times in their 19 first-quarter plays and then, with the Giants sucked in, threw it 14 times in their 20 second-quarter plays as they built a 20-0 halftime lead. "I feel I made better decisions. Just go and hit it, whether the hole is there or not," McCoy said. "But the guys up front were blowing them off the ball the whole game."

Pyro's take: McCoy had his best game this season, but it was off of a poor defense in the New York Giants, and instead of gaining momentum he will now have to get it back after the bye-week. Keep starting him, as he is just too versatile to keep on the bench.

Not Getting it Done

Very surprising the year that LeSean McCoy is having this season. He is averaging 2.7 yards per carry, the worst since arriving in Philadelphia, and it didnt help that he had only 17 yards on 10 carries against the 49ers.

Even with all this, McCoy remains confident "just not getting it done," he repeatedly said - and he is unbothered by the criticism.

"I'm confident in my game," McCoy said. "I know who I am. The teams we play know what type of player I am. That doesn't bother me. I can't answer why we can't get the running game going. And I'm not going to. I'm not going to fight that battle."

Pyro's take: Owners should not have to worry about McCoy, because he is too good not to be able to turn it around, and plays in an offensive system that is top notch. Keep plugging him in your line-up, as he will eventually break-out, and you dont want him on the sidelines when he does.

A bit shady

LeSean McCoy suffered a possible concussion on Sunday, I say possible, because he was cleared by team doctors to continue to play. Ask anyone who saw him play, they would confirm something was not right. With just 10 minutes left in the game, McCoy was turning in a Matt Asiata type performance, on 14 carries LeSean McCoy had just 21 yards. He finished even worse, 19 carries for 22 yards. The Eagles will visit the 49ers this weekend.

Pyro's take: Its hard to believe in this day, that the Eagles staff would liablly allow LeSean McCoy to resume his play not being 100% able to. This is the year though that believing in things strange has gotten a lot easier. If he is cleared for the 49ers trip, which includes getting on a plane for a cross-country flight, expect the same ole' McCoy, but keep an eye out in case he isnt.

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."


"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.
