McCoy's teammate Josh Allen has already been ruled out for Week 7 with an elbow injury and could miss a few more weeks of action. Derek Anderson will start at quarterback this week against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

It's not like Allen was lighting the world on fire, but he had been keeping the Bills in games on the other side of what's been an excellent defense, which in turn meant the Bills -- and hence McCoy -- could run the ball more, something the team wasn't able to do earlier in the season. McCoy has put up 158 rushing yards over the last two games, so at least he's starting to provide owners with some value, though we're already entering Week 7 and he still hasn't found the end zone. This may be the league's worst offense, so hopefully for McCoy owners the 35-year-old Anderson can at least keep the chains moving, otherwise McCoy might get swept up in the mess, as was the case the first two games when he only saw 16 carries combined. If you're looking for some good news, McCoy does get the Colts and their bottom-10 defense this week, plus you can bet the Bills will give him the ball early and often in an attempt to protect a quarterback that's not even fully familiar with the playbook yet.

McCoy carried 16 times for 73 yards and caught three passes for an additional 21 yards during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy averaged a respectable 4.6 yards per carry against a stout Texans front, posting his second-best rushing output of the season. He tied for third on the team in targets and chipped in as a pass catcher in what was another encouraging performance. McCoy has been much more effective over the last two weeks, totaling 202 scrimmage yards on a healthy 45 touches. Shady should continue to produce through sheer volume if nothing else, but he's still yet to find the end zone this season and could struggle even more in that regard if Josh Allen (elbow) is forced to miss time. Next up is a matchup with the Colts on Sunday.

McCoy isn't expected to be traded from the Bills to the Eagles this season, as the two sides haven't even reached the point of discussing compensation in any potential deal, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy was linked to his former team after the Eagles lost starting running back Jay Ajayi to a season-ending knee injury last Sunday. While Rapoport notes that Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman reached out to the Bills, it appears his communication with the Buffalo front office was more of a feeler than anything, as no serious trade talks for McCoy emerged. According to Rapoport, the Bills reportedly have a high asking price for the 30-year-old, which has halted the momentum in any teams' pursuit for McCoy. While the Bills will undoubtedly continue to listen to offers on McCoy, at this point, it appears fantasy owners should proceed with the expectation that he'll remain in Buffalo for the remainder of the campaign, a reality that dims his outlook. McCoy has failed to score a touchdown this season and is averaging only 58.5 scrimmage yards per game over his four appearances.

Coach Sean McDermott tried to defuse trade rumors about McCoy during a Wednesday morning press conference, Sal Maiorana of The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports. "Just to get out in front of this LeSean thing a little bit here the best I could, as best I can, LeSean is one of our better players, thought he had a good game the other day and we're just looking forward to playing the Houston Texans," McDermott said.

EDGE Analysis

Rumors about a potential trade date back to the offseason, as a 30-year-old running back doesn't seem like the best fit for a team headed for a rebuilding season. Of course, the Bills have managed to stay somewhat competitive with two wins in their first five games, and McCoy is still the centerpiece of an otherwise undermanned offense. The rumors kicked back into gear Monday when it was announced that Eagles running back Jay Ajayi (knee) will be out for the rest of the season. A reunion between McCoy and his former team might make some sense, but it seems likely the Bills hold onto their lead back for at least a few more weeks. McDermott did acknowledge the likelihood that general manager Brandon Beane has fielded calls about McCoy's availability. The Bills are traveling to Houston this weekend to face a Texans defense that allows just 3.4 yards per carry and 95 rushing yards per game.

McCoy rushed 24 times for 85 yards and caught two of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy delivered his best effort of the season, having previously failed to top 40 rushing yards in a game. Game flow was responsible for much of his success, as the Bills were able to commit to the rushing attack in a tightly contested matchup. The veteran running back had not received double-digit carries in a game prior to this contest, so it's tough to predict what his workload will look like in Week 6 against Houston.

McCoy, who has been dealing with a rib issue and also appeared to hurt his hand this past Sunday, does not appear on the Bills' Week 5 injury report.

EDGE Analysis

That puts McCoy on track to continue to lead the Bills' ground game Sunday against the Titans. In the three games that the running back has appeared in this season, McCoy has logged just 21 carries (for 85 yards), a low figure that can largely be attributed to game flow due to lopsided scores. Per Chris Brown of the team's official site, coach Sean McDermott is hoping to get McCoy more involved (both as a runner and as a pass-catcher) in the coming weeks. This weekend, he'll take aim at a Tennessee defense that is allowing an average of 118 yards per game on the ground to date.

Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that McCoy (hand) should be okay, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy returned from a rib injury for Sunday's 22-0 loss in Green Bay, taking five carries for 24 yards and catching three of six targets for 13 yards. He was spotted with a wrap around his left hand after the game, but the Bills don't seem to think it's a serious issue as they begin preparation for Week 5 against the Titans.

McCoy (ribs) rushed five times for 24 yards and caught three of six targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 22-0 loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Quarterback Josh Allen was atrocious in this one, leaving little room for the ground game to operate. Chris Ivory was also involved on the ground with 15 yards on six carries. With Buffalo's offense looking like the worst unit in the league outside of last week's surprise upset over the Vikings, McCoy will be fighting an uphill battle to provide strong value this season.

McCoy (ribs) is active Sunday against the Packers, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports

EDGE Analysis

McCoy has logged three consecutive limited practices leading up to the Week 4 showdown at Lambeau Field, and after getting through pregame warmups without a hitch, he'll be ready to suit up against the Packers. While Green Bay is a bottom-six rushing defense that allows 124.3 yards per game on the ground, it remains to be seen if McCoy will be able to play through the pain of cracked ribs and take advantage of the matchup. Should he need a breather at any point, backup Chris Ivory would be ready to step in.

McCoy (ribs), who practiced on a limited basis for a third straight day Friday, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Green Bay, the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy, who sported a non-contact jersey at practice Friday, says he's playing but coach Sean McDermott is being more tepid in his approach to his start running back's status, saying "we'll see" when asked about it earlier Friday. At least owners will get a final decision Sunday before the early wave of games kick off, though this is looking like a true game-time decision for Shady owners.
