LeSean McCoy RB PHI 5 Days5 Comments
McCoy had 23 carries for 88 yards and caught his lone target for 18 yards in Sunday's 53-20 loss at Green Bay.
McCoy posted better numbers than last week, when he had 13 carries for just 19 yards, but fantasy owners are probably not impressed. Whether it's the presence of Darren Sproles or something else, McCoy has not been used much as a receiver, especially lately, catching 12-of-16 targets for 46 yards over the last eight games. He's got a great matchup next week, facing a Titans' defense that has not been able to stop opposing RBs this season.

McCoy had 13 carries for 19 yards and a touchdown, with one reception for a two-yard loss, in Monday's 45-21 win over the Panthers.
The Eagles couldn't get anything going on the ground, and they didn't really give it much effort until they were up big in the second half. McCoy was oddly still getting early in the fourth quarter, though Chris Polk closed things out when it really got down to garbage time. Darren Sproles only had one carry, but the speedy veteran made it a frustrating one for McCoy's owners, scoring from eight yards out. It's surprising that the Eagles couldn't run against the Carolina defense, though again worth mentioning that they barely tried. Next week's matchup should favor the running game, as the Packers have been fantastic against the pass this season.

McCoy wasn't listed on the Eagles' injury report Thursday, the team's official site reports.
McCoy missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness, but the Eagles weren't required to release an injury report with a Monday night contest on tap. Thus, a fantasy landmine was avoided, and owners can keep the running back in their lineups, as they normally would. While his opponent Sunday, the Dolphins, has yielded just 3.8 YPC to running backs this season, they've allowed seven total touchdowns to the position through eight games.

McCoy didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Fortunately, the Eagles have an extra day of prep with a Monday night tilt on tap against the Panthers, thereby allowing McCoy sufficient time to recover. Nevertheless, he's expected to practice in some capacity Thursday, when the first injury report of the week will establish his Week 10 availability.

McCoy (undisclosed) didn't appear to take part in the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.
The reason for McCoy's potential absence is unknown, but perhaps he's receiving a veteran's day off in order to keep his health intact. After averaging 22.5 carries over the last four games, the rest is likely a welcome relief, if an injury isn't the culprit.

McCoy had 23 carries for 117 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for six receiving yards Sunday against the Texans.
After a fairly tough start to the season, McCoy has been heavily used over the last four games, averaging 22.5 carries for 107.5 yards, though he has now gone six straight games without a touchdown. Starting quarterback Nick Foles suffered a shoulder injury in the game, and if backup Mark Sanchez is forced to start Week 10 against the Panthers, the team could turn to an even heavier workload for McCoy against a Carolina defense allowing the sixth-most rushing yards per game this season, while allowing the second-most rushing touchdowns.

McCoy had 21 carries for 83 yards in Sunday's loss at Arizona. He also had three receptions on five targets for 14 yards.
McCoy nearly had a short touchdown late in the game, but got stuffed around the goal line, and finished with modest numbers. After a slow start to the season, McCoy owners thought he had turned things around with a 149-yard game before Philadelphia's bye, but to be fair, Arizona boasts one of the best rushing defenses in the league. On a positive note, McCoy posted his third straight game of 20 or more carries. Next week, McCoy should have an easier task, facing a Texans' defense that has been average against the run this year.

McCoy gained 149 yards on 22 carries and five yards on two receptions in Sunday's 27-0 win over the Giants.
McCoy came out of the gates fast and furious, burning the Giants for gains of 12 and 18 on the first drive of the game. He piled up 139 rushing yards in the first three quarters, but it was Darren Sproles who scampered in from 15 yards out for the night's only rushing touchdown. Sproles, who suffered a knee injury at the end of the third quarter, finished his night with a 7-39-1 rushing line but didn't catch any of his four targets. McCoy looked fast and healthy during Sunday's game, and the Eagles' injury-riddled offensive line turned in its best performance since at least Week 2. Philadelphia figures to get center Jason Kelce (sports hernia) and left guard Evan Mathis (knee) back by the end of the season, but Mathis isn't eligible to return until Week 10, while Kelce will likely miss at least another game or two. Following a Week 7 bye, McCoy will head to Arizona to face a feisty but injury-marred Cardinals defense.

McCoy had 24 carries for 81 yards and caught four passes on four targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-28 win against St. Louis. He also lost a fumble at one point.
McCoy seemed to be pressing on his fumble, trying to make a spectacular play out of nothing, ultimately putting the ball on the ground. There has been speculation that McCoy might be playing with an injury, but he got nearly 30 touches Sunday. As long as he's getting volume, the big plays should come, although he's still searching for his first 100-yard rushing game of the season.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said that McCoy is healthy, and not currently on the list to receive treatment for an injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "He's healthy," Kelly said. "He's not on the treatment list. He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him."
McCoy's struggles this season (2.7 YPC) have led to speculation that he's been attempting to play through an injury. Kelly's assertion that his starting running back is healthy is certainly good news, as is the return of tackle Lane Johnson in Week 5 following a four-game suspension to begin the season.
