LeSean McCoy RB PHI 8 Days

Philly Mag's Sheil Kapadia does not expect the Eagles to lighten LeSean McCoy's workload.

LeSean McCoy went over 130 rushing yards four times in Nick Foles' final seven games of last season.

McCoy initially suffered a dip in production when Michael Vick went out of the lineup, as defenses were able to crash on the zone read play Chip Kelly loves. But the Eagles adjusted by adding some wrinkles, and McCoy proved to be even more explosive despite Foles' lack of Vick-like mobility. Shady is currently our No. 1 overall fantasy player.

According to the Allentown Morning Call, the Eagles' goal is "definitely to move a lot faster this year" on offense.

Per beat writer Nick Fierro, the offense is "moving so much faster between plays" at OTAs, and "the Eagles are making significant strides in that area." Adds Fierro, "it was like a drag race out there." As a rookie coach, Chip Kelly expressed some disappointment with his offense's tempo as it finished 13th in the NFL in plays from scrimmage. More plays equal more touches, equal more box-score stats. The increased emphasis on speed is good news for Philly fantasy players.

LeSean McCoy said he expects to get fewer touches this season with the addition of Darren Sproles.

"I think 366 touches is a lot," McCoy said. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together." McCoy led the NFL with 314 carries in his first season under Chip Kelly. The signing of Sproles is going to cut more into his receiving game usage and third down snaps than his rushing workload. Sproles had just 53 carries in 2013, but was fourth among running backs with 71 receptions.

Beat writer Sheil Kapadia says it's "unlikely" LeSean McCoy "sees a significant decrease" in usage next season despite the acquisition of Darren Sproles.

Yes, the Eagles want to ensure they don't overwork McCoy, who played the second-most snaps of any running back in the league last year and piled up 366 touches. But we're talking about one of the game's most valuable players, one that draws fair comparisons to Barry Sanders for his raw running ability. McCoy is going to get his 18-20 carries per game plus all the goal-line work, leaving him right there with Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles atop the fantasy running back rankings. Just knock his reception projection (52 last season) down a peg.

LeSean McCoy rushed 21 times for 77 yard with a touchdown and caught four passes for 15 yards in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.

The Saints surprisingly held McCoy under four yards per carry, the first time that's happened to him since Week 11. It's a bitter end to a truly spectacular season. McCoy stayed healthy for all 16 games, won the league's rushing title with 1,607 yards, graded out as PFF's No. 1 running back by a wide margin, ranked fifth in YPC (5.11) and drew very fair comparisons to Barry Sanders with insane cutting ability/jukes. With a running-game friendly Chip Kelly up-tempo offense in place, there's reason to believe the 25-year-old McCoy will put up even more fantasy production in 2014 as he'll improve on his touchdown rate (11 in 2013). Shady is the early favorite to go No. 1 overall in next year's drafts.

LeSean McCoy had 18 carries for 133 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Bears.

McCoy gashed the Bears' league-worst run defense, averaging an impressive 7.4 yards-per-attempt before being rested in the fourth quarter. He added six catches for 29 yards in the passing game. McCoy scored on a dive play from one-yard out in the first quarter and did a spin move around three defenders for his second touchdown. He all but locked up the rushing title and now leads Jamaal Charles by 189 yards with the performance. The Eagles will take on the Cowboys in Week 17 to decide the NFC East.

LeSean McCoy expects a massive workload in Sunday night's game against the Bears.

Even if the Cowboys beat the Redskins at 1pm, coach Chip Kelly said he will not rest any of his players against the Bears. So the game plan will almost certainly be built around McCoy as the league's leading rusher faces the league's worst run defense. "I feel like this game, I need to put the offense on my back," McCoy said. He's easily fantasy's No. 1 RB for Super Bowl week.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed he will not rest his starters on Monday Night Football in Week 16 even if the NFC East title is locked up by a Dallas loss to Washington on Sunday.

The Eagles will seal the division if Kirk Cousins' Redskins knock off the nosediving Cowboys next Sunday. Kelly confirmed he has no interest in resting starters in an effort to stay healthy for the NFL playoffs. Kelly's approach could perhaps change in Week 17, but there is no threat to LeSean McCoy, Nick Foles, DeSean Jackson, or Riley Cooper's Week 16 fantasy start-ability.
