Summary

LeSean McCoy may not feel as though he was wanted in Philadelphia with the Eagles, but there are still questions about why he struggled so much last season. Even after their offensive line was healthy, McCoy still had issues, running the ball outside too often and dancing behind the line way too frequently. Despite that, McCoy still managed to top 1,300 yards, though his per-carry-average fell almost a full yard, from 5.1 to 4.2. His touchdown totals also took a severe hit, and he caught far fewer balls in 2014 than he did in almost any year previously. Can McCoy turn things around and get back to the back we saw previously? On the plus side, he's behind a decent line (if not quite as good as the one the Eagles have), has a coach who wants the run the ball as much as possible and just enough talent at the receiver position perhaps keep the defense from just stacking the box against the run. He will also see plenty of use in the pass game as whatever quarterback ends up under center is likely to use him on a lot of screens. In terms of negative, neither Matt Cassel nor EJ Manuel are huge threats at quarterback, so the passing offense will only hold the defense off so long. McCoy also will split at least some portion of carries with Fred Jackson or rookie Karlos Williams, though how much is unclear. In the end, McCoy doesn't seem like quite the elite back he used to be, and his situation is shaky. He should still be a solid player and a fringe first rounder in most ten-team leagues, with a bump in any league which awards points for receptions. (May 16)
