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

Bills Resign TyGod, Bring in DiMarco

Pyro's take: The Bills have been busy addressing offensive needs by resigning Tyrod Taylor and adding FB Patrick DiMarco.

Fantasy Goo: The major winner from these transactions is Shady McCoy. Bringing back a dual threat QB and a top end FB should clear up even more lanes for Shady who hasn't shown signs of slowing down.

MCCoy a Lock in Week 15

Pyro's take: The Bills welcome the Browns on Sunday. Cleveland is allowing the second most rushing yards per game this season.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy has put up over 100 all-purpose yards and/or scored a TD in 10 games this season. He is one of two of my official RB DFS picks.

The Real Slim Shady has Stood Up

Pyro's take: McCoy has totaled 598 yards with four touchdowns and a two-point conversion over his last five games. He continues that run against the Bills this week.

Fantasy Goo: The Browns have allowed 146 rushing yards per game and 14 touchdowns. Gillislee has been a touchdown vulture, but with the matchup both have stand alone value. Shady is a must start RB1 and Gillislee is flex worthy.

In the Cold Rain and Snow

Pyro's take: They are possibly calling for snow and fog in Buffalo. Not rain, nor sleet, nor Josie Hatfiled can slow this McCoy. He can truck in the snow. To my chagrin, we have seen McCoy do it in the snow before, yes... I realize t'was against the Lions, the image is not completely repressed from memory.

Fantasy Goo:

-Out of the top 8 most expensive RBs on DK - only 2 at home – McCoy is one.
-Pitt's nose tackle Javon Hargrave has not practiced all week
o Only 3 S's giving up more DK pts to opposing RBs

Recent bruising backs to do well v Pitt
 Ware – 82
 Ajayi – 204 and 2TDs
 Blount 127 – 2TDs
 Elliot 114-2TDs

OC Says Gillislee Red Zone Back

Pyro's take: The Bills will continue to try to keep Shady fresh by working in Gillislee and having him as the primary goal line back.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is still a must start when healthy, but expect the TD numbers to drop. Gillislee has earned some stand alone value and could be used as an RB2.

McCoy Looks to Carry the Load Alone

Pyro's take: Gillislee is indeed out against the Jags.

Fantasy Goo: Only one other team runs the ball more than the Bills. Not only that, no other team has a higher percentage of their red zone TDs come from rushing. Against Jacksonville, those number should be bolstered as a positive game-script is very likely for the Bills. A do-run-run-run, a-do-run-run

Fantasy Inactives for Buffalo

Pyro's take: Goodwin and McCoy are officially out.

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee is a great play. He has a 5.7 YPC on a team that runs the ball more than 50% of the time.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday

Pyro's take: LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

McCoy is In: Gillislee Owners None Too Happy

Pyro's take: McCoy is active despite early reports this week to the contrary.

Fantasy Goo: There is lots of hesitation now as it relates to Gillislee. On Draft Kings, he is minimum priced, thus I think he is still a great play there as he will reach his 4xfloor. In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week. If you remember, Ware was the man, and Gillislee is just too talented.

LeSean McCoy Week 7 Status is Shady After Getting Injured In Practice

Pyro's take: LeSean McCoy left practice early Wednesday with an apparent hamstring injury and did not return.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy did not finish practice due to "tightness" in his hamstring. The Bills are currently awaiting results from a medical evaluation regarding the severity. Owners should keep an eye out for future updates, and if you haven't already, you should look to add Mike Gillislee in the case that McCoy misses time.

DFS - RB Plays for Week 6

Pyro's take: McCoy and the Bills have a high implied total and a large spread. That spells positive game script. Hyde faces the Bills who have allowed 4th most RB1 FF Points, only 4 teams giving up more RB rushing TDs. Murray's been amazing and the game script against Cleveland is exactly what Malarkey and company wants, this highly favors the run game today.

Fantasy Goo: Gamescript and matchup plays a big factor in these two games. This is a RB DFS week

Shady Is The Real McCoy

Pyro's take: LeSean McCoy rushed for 150 yards on 18 carries, and caught both of his targets for eight yards.

Fantasy Goo: Shady looked explosive again in Week 5, totaling 158 yards on 20 touches. McCoy was unstoppable throughout the contest, most noticeably on a 53-yard rush where he burst through the line of scrimmage seemingly untouched until finally being stopped just short of a touchdown. Week 5 marked the third game under Offensive Coordinator Anthony Lynn, and owners can now safely assume that McCoy's increased workload is no fluke. McCoy is and will continue to be the focal point of the Bills' offense, making him a must-start RB1 for the foreseeable future.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo

Mike Clay

Pyro's take: Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Shady McCoy To Get Limited Touches This Preseason

Buffalo Bills RB

Pyro's take: Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) was held out of the majority of the drills in minicamp due to an ankle injury that is said to be minor. The Bills are also expected to limit McCoy's reps throughout the training camp and preseason portions of the offseason "by design" to "keep him fresh" for the regular season.

Entering his eighth season in the NFL, LeSean McCoy is still regarded as one of the league's best at his position. McCoy played in 12 games last season and tallied 895 yards and three touchdowns, adding another 292 yards off of 32 receptions and two scores as a receiver out of the backfield. The multidimensional running back should be considered a mid-to-low end RB1 in the upcoming fantasy football campaign.

Karlos Williams overweight after skipping OTAs to be with pregnant fiancée

Rex Ryan didn't want to put a number on it, but it’s clear Williams needs to be in better shape.

Pyro's take: Rex Ryan didn't want to put a number on it, but it’s clear Williams needs to be in better shape. He took part in individual drills Tuesday and then spent the rest of practice working with the strength and conditioning staff on some basic conditioning drills.

Fantasy Goo: Karlos is carrying sympathy weight gain. Let us hope he is not the next Eddy Lacy for 2016. Karlos Williams had 7 touchdowns in his first 6 games played in the N.F.L. last year. He is a must have for any owner who drafts Shady McCoy or any owner who does not think LeSean can stay healthy in 2016.

Philadelphia district attorney’s office is "pushing back" against issuing an arrest warrant for LeSean McCoy for his alleged involvement in a nightclub brawl with off-duty police officers.


Pyro's take: More than a week after the Philadelphia Police Department completed its investigation, the District Attorney’s office is “pushing back” against issuing an arrest warrant for LeSean McCoy for his alleged involvement in a bar brawl with off-duty police officers, law enforcement officials told CSNPhilly.com on Thursday.

According to law enforcement officials, tension between the District Attorney’s office and PPD has risen over the last few days because of the delay in charging McCoy and three other men for their alleged role in a fight at Recess Lounge in Old City early on the morning of Feb. 7. Sources told CSNPhilly.com that the D.A.’s office is hesitant to issue warrants because it has questions about the conduct of the officers that evening, including that the officers did not call 9-1-1 during the incident and whether they were drinking to excess.

LeSean McCoy assault investigation told the Buffalo News police are expected to hold a press conference regarding their case on Thursday or "Friday at the latest."


Pyro's take: An attorney for Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy told The Buffalo News Wednesday that his client “did nothing wrong” in the Feb. 7 nightclub brawl that sent two off-duty police officers to the hospital.

As of Wednesday, no charges had been filed in the incident, which also involved three other men who were with McCoy and a third off-duty police officer.

“We continue to investigate,” Cameron Kline, a spokesman for the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, told The News Wednesday.

It was unclear if that also meant arrest warrants would be issued. If so, according to another source close to the situation, anyone charged would be instructed to turn himself in.

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."
