Police are investigating a home invasion at a home owned by McCoy. Attorneys for the victim released a statement that said a male assailant entered the home without signs of forced entry and demanded items of jewelry that she had received from McCoy. The NFL is reviewing the matter and it could affect his status for the 2018 season.

Summary

Despite a somewhat dysfunctional passing offense, and defenses which knew he was the center-point of the Buffalo offense, LeSean McCoy still managed 1,138 yards and a 4 yards per carry average. He also added 77 targets, resulting in 59 catches and 448 yards -- both of the latter categories were his highest totals since 2013 in Philadelphia. He also saw his highest volume of carries (287) since he left Philadelphia in 2014, which shows you just how focused teams were on him (his yards per carry dropped last year from 5.4 the season prior) and how effective he remained despite that. McCoy is likely to be the focal point in the offense again this year, as the passing offense will be in the hands of either an unproven former backup in A.J. McCarron or a raw rookie in Josh Allen. He should see a high volume of both handoffs and passes, and continues to be slick enough to overcome the defensive focus. If there is one big negative for his game it is the overall lack of touchdowns, with just 6 on the ground last season and 8 total. The volume and his effectiveness makes him a solid fantasy back, but the defensive attention, lack of touchdowns and lack of support around him tamp down the expectations a bit, making him a RB2 with some upside.

Latest News

Bills | LeSean McCoy blamed for abuse (Tue Jul 10, 02:22 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy has been accused of beating a woman, her son and a dog and for using performance-enhancing drugs. The claims were made against McCoy Tuesday, July 10, but McCoy quickly denied them in a statement on his Instagram account. 'For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,' McCoy stated. 'Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any people involved in months.' The Bills are investigating the alleged incident.

Our View: There's been a lot of information moving very rapidly here, so expect more information throughout the next few weeks. Aside from McCoy's rebuttal, the instagram post has been removed. We don't know much for sure right now, which makes McCoy a big question mark in drafts right now. If guilty, he could see at least a six game suspension from the league and much worse from the legal system. If not guilty, he may still find himself on the wrong end of a suspension, as Ezekiel Elliott did. We'll wait for clarity, but make sure if you're drafting now, that you factor all this in when deciding if that second round pick is worth the price. Hopefully you draft closer to the start of the season and we have more clarity.

Bills | LeSean McCoy called league's best (Sat Jul 7, 09:23 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is the best running back in the NFL, according to Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore.

Our View: McCoy's talent and skill is undeniable, but he will face the toughest challenge of his storied career this year. The Bills lost their three best offensive linemen in the offseason, will likely have one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the league no matter who wins the job, and have the worst set of passcatchers in the league. McCoy will get a ton of volume, but will be the focus of defenses. He's one of the most difficult calls in the early rounds.
