  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy gashing defenses on first down    Tue Oct 15, 02:57 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy leads all rushers - minimum 20 rush attempts - with 6.79 yards per carry on first down. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ranks second at 6.32, while Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (5.87), Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (5.83) and San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (5.71) round out the top five.

Footballguys view: McCoy can still play at a high level...provided he hangs onto the rock and does a good job in pass protection. The Chiefs travel to Denver to play the Broncos on Thursday night. McCoy has flex appeal in that matchup.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy benched due to pass pro issues    Mon Oct 7, 02:34 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy played only 14 snaps in Week 5 versus the Indianapolis Colts due to problems in pass protection, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Patrick Mahomes was under constant fire on Sunday night. He was sacked a season-high four times against the Colts and banged up in the process. With Damien Williams returning to the lineup, the Chiefs RB situation is even more cluttered. That makes McCoy more of a 'what the heck' flex in Week 6 against the Texans.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy rushed 11 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions and he added two grabs for 33 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: McCoy wasn't an engine of the offense but he broke a run for a long gain and converted a touchdown to account for an RB2 worthy day. Even if Damien Williams can return next week, McCoy has established himself as a flex play.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy's (ankle) MRI didn't show any significant damage, and he could play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran back here. With Damien Williams also banged up, Fantasy GMs with enough bench space should be adding Darwin Thompson if he's out there. The Chiefs are at home to play the Ravens in Week 3.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 81 yards on 10 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1. He also caught one pass for 12 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McCoy might not quite be the player he used to be but he can still be effective. This high-powered offense features multiple weapons, so it's not like McCoy will face a lot of 8-man boxes. He will continue to work in with Damien Williams in the Chiefs RBBC.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy expected to play Sunday    Tue Sep 3, 09:59 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy is likely to be available for his team's Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Andy Reid. 'We'll see what he can pick up in a short period of time here, how comfortable he is with it, and then we'll go from there,'' Reid said Monday, Sept. 2. 'He's a pretty sharp kid so I think we'll be OK. He's been practicing and playing in these preseason games so the conditioning part is not an issue. It's just becoming familiar with the protections and the run game part. 'This is different than what we did in Philadelphia. There will be some familiar things, but it's quite a bit different. He's going to have to get in and learn (the offense) and then we'll just see how that goes.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy reunites with Andy Reid in KC    Sun Sep 1, 01:05 AM

Free-agent RB LeSean McCoy (Bills) agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $4 million - including $3 million guaranteed - with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: McCoy should at least get enough touches to open the season to be a flex worthy play if not more, but the rest is up to him. Damien Williams is probably still the starter, but he won't have as big a share of the backfield if McCoy plays well. Darwin Thompson is more of a late round stash now.

  Chargers | LeSean McCoy of interest to Chargers    Sat Aug 31, 02:24 PM

Free-agent RB LeSean McCoy (Bills) is of interest to the Los Angeles Chargers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The move makes sense, especially with Melvin Gordon's continued holdout. Head coach Anthony Lynn was the Buffalo Bills' offensive coordinator in 2016 when McCoy ran for 1,267 yards and 13 touchdowns. Stay tuned.
