McCoy's knee is OK: The Philadelphia Daily News reports Eagles running back LeSean McCoy's knee is OK following discomfort at practice on Monday. He was back at practice on Tuesday. (Updated 5/22/13)
No information available at this time (Updated 5/25/13).
We assumed McCoy was OK in the first place. Hopefully he stays that way as he figures to be a very integral part of the Eagles' new offense under coach Chip Kelly, which is very run-heavy. He has potential for a very good year, making him a Top 15 pick in all formats. Pairing him with Bryce Brown in Round 9 is a very smart idea. (Updated 5/22/13).
05/15/2013 20:58 Finding the Fits: Barkley is the future in Philly
While not as athletic as the quarterbacks Chip Kelly featured at Oregon, Matt Barkley's intelligence, quick set-up and delivery and accuracy (especially on the move) make him an intriguing fit in high-tempo attack that already boasts plenty of playmakers.
There are some Fantasy owners worried about LeSean McCoy this season. He is coming off a bad year, playing for a new coach in Chip Kelly and has some potential competition for carries in Bryce Brown. All of that is true, but have no fear because McCoy remains an elite Fantasy option. Yes, 2012 was a tough year for him. He missed four games with a concussion and went from 20 total touchdowns in 2011 to just five. He also failed to reach 1,500 total yards (he had 1,200) for the first time since 2009. But despite his struggles, McCoy still had double digits in Fantasy points in 10 of his 12 outings. He still remains the starter, and Kelly will lean on him. And even if he comes off the field for Brown at times, it's not like this is a 50-50 split. McCoy will continue to do the heavy lifting for this offense. We definitely recommend drafting McCoy in Round 1, and he should be considered a Top 10 overall pick. Brown is worth a late-round selection as a handcuff, but figure McCoy to be around 1,500 total yards again with the chance for double digits in touchdowns and close to 50 catches. He's an elite Fantasy option, and he will regain his form this year. (Updated 4/26/13)
