Eagles' Chris Polk gets first-team reps in practice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk received first-team reps in practice on Wednesday, according to CSNPhilly.com.

Polk opened practice with the starters and ran a couple of plays. LeSean McCoy watched the plays from the sideline. Following practice, McCoy stressed that it wasn't a big deal. "We rotate all the time," he said. "[Running back coach Duce Staley] pulled me out. [Darren] Sproles wasn't in either." Polk is coming off a three touchdown performance in Week 15. It's possible he could find his way into more playing time given the practice situation. 


Nothing goes LeSean McCoy's way in Week 15


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy couldn't catch a break Week 15 against Dallas, his second straight game with disappointing Fantasy production after his two most productive of the season in Weeks 12 and 13.

The Eagles ran four plays inside the Cowboys' 5-yard line. Only one of them went to McCoy, and he went out of bounds after a 3-yard gain. Darren Sproles got the ball on the very next play and ran it in for the score.

On the other two -- the first two, actually -- Chris Polk took a handoff and successfully ran it in. His presence is a little troubling since he doesn't have a role apart from short-yardage situations, but the last time he got Fantasy owners all worked up, rushing for 50 yards and a score Week 9 at Houston, he followed it up with a combined seven Fantasy points in his next five games. That the Eagles went back to McCoy for their third play inside the 5 after Polk had already converted on the first two is also a positive sign.

Seems like McCoy's Week 15 performance was just "one of those things," which isn't what his Fantasy owners want to hear, especially if it got them eliminated from the playoffs. But that's kind of the way McCoy's season has gone. If you expected an assured 100 yards every week, you haven't been paying attention.


Eagles notch three rushing TDs, none for McCoy in Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy racked up a team-high 64 yards on 16 carries but didn't score any of the Eagles' three rushing touchdowns in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

McCoy, who also added just one reception for one yard, had 16 of his team's 21 carries, but saw Chris Polk score on both of his touches while gaining six yards and Darren Sproles pick up five yards and a touchdown on just three carries. Sproles also added 11 yards on two receptions.

McCoy enjoyed big performances in Weeks 12 and 13 but has managed just 115 yards and no touchdowns on 34 touches over the last two weeks. He'll look for a bigger game when he faces the Redskins in Week 16.


Eagles' LeSean McCoy limited Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was limited Week 14 against the Seahawks.

McCoy carried the ball 17 times, gaining just 50 yards. He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry. Things got worse right after the half. On the team's first play of the third quarter, McCoy lost a fumble. Seattle scored just two plays later. McCoy only received five carries the rest of the contest. Surprisingly, McCoy was not targeted in the passing game.

He'll look for more Week 15 against the Cowboys. 


Eagles' LeSean McCoy misses Friday practice


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Eagles reported running back LeSean McCoy did not participate in practice Friday.

The Eagles listed McCoy’s absence as non-injury related. He was able to practice Wednesday and Thursday.


LeSean McCoy busts out on Thanksgiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles RB LeSean McCoy busted out for a season-high 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Thursday's win at Dallas. McCoy sprinted 35 yards around right end on his second rush and averaged 6.4 yards per carry on the day.

Midway through the third quarter, McCoy used a vicious stiff-arm to scoot 38 yards for a touchdown, his third score in the past four games and fourth this season. McCoy has run for 289 yards over the past two weeks. He was not targeted in the passing game.

McCoy coughed up his second fumble of the season, but it didn't matter in this blowout. He plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


LeSean McCoy looks as good as ever


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) After he averaged just 3.8 yards per carry Week 11 at Green Bay, questions about whether or not Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has lost a step resurfaced leading up to Week 12. He did his best to invalidate them against the Titans, though, rushing for 130 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.

His defining play was a 53-yard run early in the fourth quarter in which he juked a defender and turned on the jets, breaking away from the secondary before getting run down deep in Titans territory. It was the kind of athletic move you'd expect from a 26-year-old coming off a rushing title but one we haven't seen much from McCoy this season.

Of course, whether or not McCoy has lost a step is kind of a moot point for his Fantasy owners. The window to trade him has most likely passed them by, and while he hasn't lived up to his average draft position, mostly because he hasn't been as involved in the passing game as in years past, he's been good enough to start every week, rushing for 80 or more yards in six of the Eagles' last seven games.

Perhaps the Titans defense, which entered the game ranked 31st against the run, contributed to this performance, but even if that's the case, you wouldn't consider sitting McCoy for Week 13 at Dallas.


Eagles RB LeSean McCoy runs wild in win over Titans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy turned in a vintage performance, as he ran wild and led his team to a comfortable 43-24 victory over the Titans in Week 12.

McCoy registered his third 100-yard performance of the season and also added a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He carried the ball 21 times for 130 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He was held to only one grab for 1 yard.

McCoy has 859 yards and three touchdowns on the ground this season. He'll look to keep rolling Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys.


Eagles RB McCoy in 2014 struggles: 'I am the same player'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy has reacted angrily to suggestions that he has regressed as a player this season.

His numbers have certainly regressed. He led the NFL in rushing a year ago with 1,607 yards and 5.1 YPC. He is currently sixth in the league with 729 yards and is averaging a career-low 3.7 yards per attempt. McCoy only has two touchdowns in 2014. But injuries to the offensive line have certainly factored in.

"I'm not going to address, 'Am I the same player?' I won't address that," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. "For what? What are we talking about, am I the same player. That's for y'all to figure out. You crazy? Am I the same player? I am the same player."


Chip Kelly sticks up for LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy averaged under 4 yards per carry Sunday for the sixth time this season, notes Philly.com. Still, coach Chip Kelly stuck up for McCoy on Monday.

"LeSean's our guy," Kelly told the website. "Right now, I think LeSean's done a good job."

McCoy is averaging 3.7 yards per carry this season after averaging 5.1 last year.

"A lot of runs he made, when you really watch them, I thought he did a good job of being patient, getting up inside, following blocks and doing things on the outside," Kelly said of McCoy's performance against Green Bay. "I don't think LeSean played poorly."

Kelly said he is not considering giving any of McCoy's carries to backup Darren Sproles, according to the website.


LeSean McCoy can't gain traction Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy struggled with his footing in the Week 11 loss at Green Bay, slipping several times while trying to cut back. He still finished with 88 yards on 23 carries (3.8 ypc) and added an 18-yard reception.

McCoy has made exactly one catch in each of the past three games and has only two touchdowns all season. He was fortunate not to get charged with a fumble when he failed to secure a third-quarter handoff from Mark Sanchez. McCoy plays the Titans in Week 12.


Eagles RB McCoy not blamed for poor ground game Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Chip Kelly believes that Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy need not look in the mirror to find blame for the team's poor performance on the ground Monday night against Carolina.

McCoy gained just 19 yards on 12 carries the win, though he did score his first touchdown since Week 2.

"I think LeSean is doing a good job," Kelly told the Philadelphia Daily News. "Sometimes the blocks aren't there."

McCoy is averaging just 3.7 YPC this season, down from 5.1 a year ago, when he led the NFL in rushing with 1,607 yards.


LeSean McCoy finds end zone for first time since Week 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy gained just 19 yards on 12 carries Monday night against Carolina, but he hit paydirt with a 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. It was McCoy's second touchdown this season, first since Week 2.

Last year he totaled 11 touchdowns.

McCoy again was not heavily involved in the passing game. He caught one of three targets for minus-2 yards, with one bad drop.

McCoy visits the Packers in Week 11.


LeSean McCoy misses practice with illness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. The paper said McCoy is expected to return to work Thursday and play Monday night against the Panthers.

LeSean McCoy looking to break the seal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy posted another vintage performance in Week 9's 31-21 win over the Texans, though he had a touchdown vultured from him that could have led to even bigger things.

McCoy rushed for 117 yards in the game, his second best total of the season, after his 149-yard performance two weeks before. The 5.1 yards per carry mark also represents his second-best of the season, and gives him three games in a row averaging at least 4.0, a level he failed to reach in each of his first six games.

McCoy is still struggling to get anything done in the passing game, and has failed to score a touchdown since Week 2. However, his offense line is getting healthy and he is starting to find his way. The touchdowns should come in this offense, assuming Chris Polk doesn't keep getting goal-line carries.

McCoy has averaged 11.3 touchdowns per season in the previous four, so he should be able to get going at some point. He will take on a Panthers defense that has allowed nine rushing touchdowns in nine games to opposing running backs, and could begin to turn his luck around in Week 10.


Eagles stud RB LeSean McCoy rushes for 117 in Week 9 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles workhorse Pro Bowl back LeSean McCoy obliterated another foe Sunday by just pounding away. He didn't score in Houston, but he certainly helped keep the Texans offense off the field.

McCoy rushed for 117 yards on 23 carries and played a particularly key role in a touchdown drive late in the third quarter. He added two catches for six yards. He has 430 yards rushing in his last four games combined, though he has been kept out of the end zone during that stretch and has scored just once this year. McCoy has not visited the end zone since Week 2.

He will attempt to rectify that when Carolina comes to town next Monday night.


LeSean McCoy disappoints again Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ran 21 times for 83 yards (4.0 ypc) in Sunday's loss at Arizona, adding three catches for 14 yards. He got stuffed on 3rd-and-1 from the Cardinals' 2 with under three minutes left in the 24-20 defeat.

This marked McCoy's fifth straight game without a touchdown, as he remains stuck on one score this season. However, it was his third consecutive outing with at least 80 rushing yards.

McCoy, who was targeted five times, visits the Texans in Week 9.


LeSean McCoy should see bigger role if Darren Sproles is out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With Darren Sproles likely out for Week 8 against the Cardinals, how will the Eagles fill the hole in their offense this Sunday?  

Chris Polk is the third running back on the depth chart, but he might not have the skills to fill in for Sproles. He has just four career receptions in the NFL, and wasn't much of a pass-catcher in college, with a career-high of 31 catches as a senior. And, of course, he is dealing with his own injury issues, with a hamstring that may still keep him sidelined Sunday.

Of course, the Eagles already have a pretty fantastic option to catch passes out of the backfield in LeSean McCoy. McCoy has taken a step back as a pass-catcher this season, with just 16 through six games, but he does have at least 50 in three of the last four seasons. He should do just fine.

This is a tough matchup for McCoy, as the Cardinals have allowed just 10.7 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Still, with McCoy likely to get a steady workload given the injuries, he has to be in your starting lineup for Week 7, even given his struggles.


LeSean McCoy back up to form


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) After showing signs of breaking out of his early-season slump Week 5 against Rams, rushing for 81 yards on 24 carries, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy finally looked like himself again Week 6 against the Giants. Of his 22 carries, six went for more than 10 yards, including a long of 28 in the third quarter. He finished with 149 yards on the ground, more than he had in his previous three games combined.

Even including this performance, the Giants rank in the middle of the pack against the run, so it's not like McCoy just took advantage of a favorable matchup. He finally did what we all thought he'd do at the beginning of the year, and judging by his comments after the game, he plans to do more of it.

"I never lost confidence in myself; you guys did and the people out there did," McCoy said.

The Eagles are on bye in Week 7, but plan on starting him every week thereafter.


LeSean McCoy goes over 150 yards from scrimmage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who entered Week 6 averaging 2.9 yards per carry, ripped off 149 yards on 22 carries (6.8 ypc) in Sunday night's blowout of the Giants. McCoy caught both his targets for 5 yards.

McCoy did not find the end zone, but he produced his first 100-yard game of the season and 11th in his last 17 primetime outings. In the process, McCoy passed Steve Van Buren to move into third on the franchise's all-time rushing list behind Wilbert Montgomery and Brian Westbrook.

McCoy is off Week 7 before visiting Arizona on Oct. 26.


Eagles deny RB controversy between LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made the point to deny a running back controversy with his team, according to ESPN on Wednesday. LeSean McCoy took the backseat to Darren Sproles, who earned five of his seven carries in the fourth quarter of a Week 5 win at home over Philadelphia. Running backs coach Duce Staley told Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia that the fresher back will play.

"What you've got to understand is it's all about being fresh at running back," Staley said. "So when you study what we do, we're a tempo team, we're a tempo offense, and to go fast, you've got to have players out there who aren't breathing hard, that aren't tired, so you've got to have players out there that you can rotate and have with energy."

McCoy is averaging 2.9 yards per carry, while his running mate Sproles has 25 carries and is averaging 6.9 yards per attempt this season.


Celebrating small victories with LeSean McCoy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) What a difference a year makes. Last season, LeSean McCoy was the league's best running back, a terrifying option out of the backfield that seemed unstoppable leading the Eagles' leauge-best running game.

Now, we're celebrating 3.4 yards per carry. McCoy's performance in Week 5, which saw him rush for 81 yards on 24 carries, is a lesson in the power of small victories. After rushing for just 39 yards on 29 carries in the previous two games, we needed to see some life from McCoy.

There is still plenty of reason to be concerned, as he had just 5 yards on four receptions and lost a fumble. Still, after watching him struggle so much in the previous two games, this gives some room for hope.

McCoy is far too talented to consider sitting out, even as he continues to post mediocre production. You just have to hope that he breaks out at some point. 


LeSean McCoy manages just 81 yards on 24 carres in Week 5


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 81 yards on 24 carries while adding five yards on four receptions in his team's 34-28 win over the Rams in Week 5.

McCoy, who didn't reach the end zone for his third straight game, lost a fumble on an extremely poor play, scrambling backwards looking for yards that just weren't there while having the ball extended from his body at times. Though the line was an improvement on his absymal numbers from the last two weeks (29 carres for just 39 yards), McCoy is still looking for a 2013-level breakout performance. The Eagles will host the Giants in Week 6.


Good opportunity for LeSean McCoy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) As all of the football-watching world, including the player himself, struggles to figure out what's wrong with LeSean McCoy, let's not lose sight of two facts:

One, the second of his two clunkers came against a 49ers defense known for stopping the run, and two, he'll be facing a Rams defense in Week 5 that ranks third-to-last in stopping the run, allowing 155.0 yards per game. The Rams allowed 100 yards to the Cowboys' DeMarco Murray in Week 3 and 144 yards to the Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey in Week 2.

McCoy's performance against the Redskins in Week 3 remains an enigma, but I'm giving him a pass against the 49ers. In other words, it hasn't become a trend yet from my perspective. I don't particularly care to join in the guessing game as to what's wrong with him because a guessing game is all it is, but I'm optimistic he bounces back against the Rams and wouldn't even dream of sitting him in Fantasy.

Judging by where Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank him this week, they feel the same way.


Eagles RB LeSean McCoy: 'I'm just not getting it done'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy is at a loss to explain his recent struggles.

"I'm just not getting it done. I don't know what to tell you," he said to CSNPhilly.com.

McCoy performed well enough in the first two games, but has proven ineffective since. He has just 39 yards in 29 carries for a 1.3 YPC average over the past two games. He has also not caught a pass after snagging 10 in the first two games combined.
