LeSean McCoy stands by his word


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy stands by what he said about being the best running back in the NFL, even if that bother Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, reports ESPN.

McCoy, who beat Peterson for the NFL rushing title last season, believes himself the most complete back in the league. That led to a media back-and-forth with Peterson last month, which started when McCoy said he was the NFL's best back.

"I don't know how people may take that," McCoy said after Monday's practice session. "It was a question I was just being honest about. I can't worry about how other people think about it. That's why we work every day. That's why I try to perfect my game. So that if people want to prove me wrong, they can."


LeSean McCoy: I'm better than Adrian Peterson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who led the league with 1,607 rushing yards last season, said he's surpassed the Vikings' Adrian Peterson as the NFL's best back.

"My brother always rips me all the time, trying to make me play harder," McCoy said on ESPN. "I say, 'I'm the best,' and he'll say, 'Did Adrian Peterson retire?' I look at the last three years and everything. I think AP has been the best back for so long, and he's been doing it for so long, that's why he automatically gets the best running back [title].

"But the last three years? I've been All-Pro, first-team, twice. I never leave the field. I block. I catch. I never leave the field. I don't have anybody do my job; I do it myself. Tons of credit goes out to Adrian Peterson. I'm a big fan of his, for sure. But I feel I'm the best."


Eagles address WR need with Jordan Matthews


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Eagles needed a receiver with DeSean Jackson gone, and they addressed the position by drafting Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews in the second round.

Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and he will have minimal Fantasy value in 2014. He should, however, help Nick Foles and the Eagles offense.

Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.

As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.


Eagles will be OK even without DeSean Jackson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) The Eagles lost DeSean Jackson this offseason, and Fantasy owners are concerned their offense could struggle without a deep threat down the field. It's possible, but there's still plenty of talent for Fantasy owners to tap into even though Jackson is gone.

For an in-depth look at some of the top Eagles players -- Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz -- check out this blog I wrote in looking at their preseason outlooks. A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but here is one view on the Eagles heading into this year.

If you disagree, feel free to discuss any differences with me on Twitter @jameyeisenberg


LeSean McCoy optimistic about addition of Darren Sproles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy has claimed that the addition of Darren Sproles will prove beneficial to his own production. McCoy cited overwork he experienced in 2013.

"I think 366 touches is a lot," he told ESPN. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together. I think having me fresh in the fourth quarter with fewer carries can be even more dangerous."

McCoy already boasts the NFL record for fourth-quarter touchdowns of 40 yards or more with seven. He led all backs last season with 441 yards and a 5.96 per-carry average in the fourth quarter. It is believed keeping him fresher might make those numbers even better.


LeSean McCoy aims for more explosiveness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy led the NFL with 1,607 rushing yards last season, but thinks he can do better.

"I want to be more explosive and in better shape," McCoy told Fox Sports. "I want to take over more games in the fourth quarter. Whether if it’s in the air or on the ground, it’s about being productive and effective at all times.

"I do a lot of one-on-one things: one-legged squats, one-legged hops, one-legged jumps. Those kinds of things will help me be more explosive."

McCoy credited coach Chip Kelly for a lot of his success.

"He really lets you be yourself," McCoy said. "The biggest thing I like about him is he’s always trying to find ways to make us better, whether it’s recovery, the training loads. He’ll do whatever it takes to make the athlete better. That’s what I love about him. He’s always trying to make us better."


LeSean McCoy: Darren Sproles will help me be more productive


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who got 366 touches last season, said he'll be fresher thanks to the signing of running back Darren Sproles.

"Signing Sproles helps me out as a running back," McCoy said, per Fox Sports. "I can go in a game even more fresh because I’m getting less carries and less attempts. I had 366 touches, which is a lot. I think me having less attempts can help me be more productive and more deadly. Being fresh in the fourth quarter, things that you don’t think matter really do make a big difference.

“Now defenses have another guy that they have to prepare for. They have to watch out for so many different things, and it’s hard. They only get a week to prepare for us.”


No need to worry about LeSean McCoy's Fantasy ranking


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The addition of Darren Sproles to the Eagles running back corps might sound scary at first when you think about LeSean McCoy's prospects, but the reality is that the Eagles do so much with running backs that it shouldn't sink McCoy too much.

McCoy had 314 carries and 52 catches last year. The rest of the Eagles' running backs combined for 86 carries and 12 catches. While there was probably a concern in Philadelphia to reduce McCoy's touches, the arrival of Sproles shouldn't signal anything close to a 50/50 or even 70/30 split. Remember, Sproles' best work in New Orleans came as a receiver out of the backfield, not as a pure rusher. I would be surprised if McCoy lost any more than five percent of his rushing workload and maybe 15-20 percent of his receiving workload. 

Sheil Kapada of Philadelphia Magazine suggests, it's unlikely McCoy will see a significant decrease in work in 2014 and I agree. McCoy should land with at least 300 touches while Sproles settles for roughly 110 touches. The backups on the roster will probably cobble together another 50 touches. 

I think it's fair to ballpark McCoy for 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's no longer the top overall player for me in Fantasy -- that goes back to Jamaal Charles -- but he's still in the Top 3.  


Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.


LeSean McCoy earns FedEx honors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has won FedEx Ground Player of the Year honors for the second time in three seasons.

McCoy rushed for 1,607 yards in 314 carries for a fine 5.1 yards-per-carry average and added nine touchdowns on the ground.


LeSean McCoy scores TD in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy enjoyed a solid performance as he found the end zone in his team's 26-24 loss to the Saints at home in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

McCoy scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter. He finished the game with 21 carries for 77 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and a touchdown. He also caught four of his five targets for 15 yards.

McCoy captured the NFL rushing title in the regular season with 1,607 yards and also led the league with 2,146 all-purpose yards.

Three Eagles named to All Pro team


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Eagles RB LeSean McCoy, OL Evan Mathis and OL Jason Peters have been named to the All Pro team.

McCoy was recently named the NFC Player of the Month, and led the league in rushing yards. Both Mathis and Peters started 16 games for the club this season.


LeSean McCoy takes home December hardware


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month in December. 

McCoy rushed for 598 yards in five December games. He also scored five touchdowns. McCoy had three games in which he rushed for at least 130 yards during the month, including a 217 yard performance against the Lions. His strong performance won him the rushing title. 


LeSean McCoy claims rushing title with 1,607 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy capped the regular season in style, rushing for 131 yards on 27 carries and catching a 3-yard touchdown in the win at Dallas. McCoy won the NFL rushing title with 1,607 yards and led the league with 2,146 all-purpose yards.

McCoy is the first Eagles player to win the rushing title in more than 60 years. Sunday night, he caught his second touchdown this season to go with nine rushing scores. 

McCoy enters the playoffs on a tear, having rushed for 264 yards the past two weeks while scoring three times.

LeSean McCoy to dominate Week 17


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2013) The Cowboys did a nice job on Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in Week 7, holding him to 55 yards on 18 carries (3.1 ypc) and 26 yards on six receptions. It was McCoy's second-worst performance this year.

But that's when middle linebacker Sean Lee was healthy and the Dallas defense wasn't a punch line. Lee made a game-high 11 tackles and an interception in the Cowboys' 17-3 win.

Things will be different Sunday night in Dallas. McCoy, the NFL rushing leader, has piled up 489 yards from scrimmage the last three weeks. Lee (neck) isn't expected to play. Dallas ranks dead last in total defense (418.6) and 27th in rush defense (127.9).

The Cowboys give up the 2nd-most Fantasy points (23.6 per game) to running backs. RBs average 4.8 yards per carry and have scored 20 touchdowns vs. Dallas. With Kansas City's Jamaal Charles expected to watch from the sideline Sunday, McCoy is Fantasy's top running back play.


LeSean McCoy all but sews up rushing title


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ripped the Bears for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries, putting him 189 yards ahead of Kansas City's Jamaal Charles for the NFL rushing title. McCoy is up to 1,476 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns.

McCoy also made a team-high six catches for 29 yards, hauling in every pass thrown his way. He scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and used a wicked spin move on his 1-yard score in the third period.

McCoy posted his sixth 100-yard rushing game, averaging 7.4 yards per carry, and went over 2,000 yards from scrimmage. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 17.


LeSean McCoy to get robust workload Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got a season-low eight carries Week 15 at Minnesota. That sets him up for a huge game vs. the Bears, as Philly should feed McCoy early and often in a great matchup.

The Eagles called 56 pass plays and nine running plays in the loss at the Vikings. That won't happen again.

“We got down a little bit there, and we really weren’t moving them very well up front,” coach Chip Kelly told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “But I think trying to take advantage of some of the matchups in the passing game, trying to free up DeSean [Jackson] and those guys.

"I also thought LeSean was a very good weapon in the passing game itself with the screen passes and some of the underneath routes," Kelly added. "Didn’t convert in the red zone and then we were down. It felt like we were down two scores all the time, so just trying to get back into it.”

McCoy, who averaged 23.3 carries over the previous four games, faces a Bears defense giving up the 3rd-most Fantasy points (22.6 per game) to running backs. RBs average a league-best 5.1 yards per carry against Chicago and have scored 16 touchdowns (2 receiving).

McCoy is the No. 2 Fantasy running back despite his subpar outing Week 15. He's a top-two play, along with Jamaal Charles, in Fantasy's championship week.


Chip Kelly won't rest starters regardless of Cowboys' outcome


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) By the time the Eagles play Chicago on Sunday night, they'll know if that game means anything in the division race. If Dallas beats Washington earlier Sunday, the Week 17 Eagles-Cowboys game decides the NFC East no matter what.

So this item from the Philadelphia Inquirer should come as a relief to Fantasy owners. Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed he won't rest starters -- including quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and receiver DeSean Jackson -- even if the Cowboys beat the Redskins.

Still, it's fair to wonder whether Kelly will play them the entire game if Week 17 is all that matters.


LeSean McCoy held in check Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was held in check Week 15 against the Vikings.

McCoy ran the ball just eight times for 38 yards. Though he had a solid 4.8 yards per attempt, the team chose not to stress the run against Minnesota. McCoy did play a substantial role in the passing game, catching five balls for 68 yards. He was targeted seven times. McCoy will look to get back on track on the ground Week 16 against the Bears.


LeSean McCoy shatters personal mark with 217 rushing yards


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) It seemed early in the game Sunday against Detroit that Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy had as much chance of breaking personal rushing records as did the weather becoming warm and sunny.

A blizzard and a strong Lions run defense held McCoy to just 19 yards on seven carries in the first 25 minutes of action. But he gained traction with 32 yards on the last possession of the half, slowed down a bit in the third quarter, then ran wild in the fourth quarter.

McCoy bolted up the middle for a 40-yard touchdown in the first minute of the quarter, added a 57-yard score a minute later for his sixth career touchdown in three games against Detroit, and by the final tick of the clock had a career-high 217 yards on the ground. He had also exceeded 5,000 yards rushing for his career. Not bad considering the Lions entered with the third-stingiest run defense in the NFL.

The Eagles are slated to play next Sunday at Minnesota.


LeSean McCoy enjoys record-breaking day against Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has shattered a personal and franchise single-game mark midway through the fourth quarter with 206 yards rushing Sunday against Detroit. The team record was set by Steve Van Buren in 1949. McCoy has also exceeded 5,000 career yards on the ground in the game.

LeSean McCoy could struggle against stingy Lions run defense


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) This era of weak production from featured backs around the NFL hasn't affected Eagles stud LeSean McCoy. And that's good news for his owners, especially with Fantasy playoffs here or on the horizon.

McCoy has rushed for at least 77 yards in each of his last three games. He is second in the NFL on the season with 1,088 yards and his 4.7 YPC average ranks second among backs with more than 150 carries. He is also one of the most productive pass-catchers out of the backfield with 39 receptions for 435 yards.

But such sterling numbers come with a precaution on Sunday. Week 14 opponent Detroit has been lights-out against the run all year. They rank third in the NFL with 992 rushing yards surrendered, sixth in touchdowns yielded on the ground with five and fourth in average yards given up per attempt at 3.7.

There is a reason McCoy ranks between sixth and 12th among NFL backs by the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers. He remains a No. 1 option in all formats, but keep in mind that he has had several off-days this year, including five games with 55 yards rushing or less, and this could be one of them.


LeSean McCoy has 115 total yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had 19 carries for 79 yards in Sunday's 24-14 win over the Cardinals. McCoy also caught five passes for 36 yards; he was targeted a team-high six times. 

McCoy lost 37 rushing yards in the fourth quarter when a long run was called back for an illegal block. He also missed two touchdown opportunities, as the Eagles went with Zach Ertz and Brent Celek on passing scores from within the 10-yard line in the first and second quarters, respectively. 

This was the second straight game with fewer than 80 rushing yards for McCoy, and the fifth time in his last seven games with fewer than 80. Conversely, it was the fourth time in the last seven with 30 or more receiving yards. 

The Eagles face the Lions in Week 14. 


LeSean McCoy has tough Week 13 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has carried the ball 20 or more times in each of his last two games. He has already surpassed 1,000 rushing yards on the season (with 1,009) and has five games with 20 or more receiving yards.

Coming off a bye, McCoy's legs will be fresh, and any possible hamstring issues (he left Week 11 in the second quarter, but returned to start the second half) are behind him. To balance that out, though, McCoy has to face Arizona in Week 13. The Cardinals have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs; they've allowed just three running backs to score this season. And in the last four games, only one player has run for more than 50 yards against the Cardinals, with just one 100-yard rusher on the year.

McCoy is an elite back with fresh legs and a high-powered offense behind him. Arizona has been tricky for running backs all season long. You'll have to downgrade McCoy a bit for the tough matchup, but it'd be from No. 3 among running backs to No. 6. He should be started in all Fantasy formats.
