Summary

There are only a handful of running backs that could legitimately be considered the best in the league; McCoy is at or near the top of that list. After back-to-back elite seasons in 2010-2011, McCoy took a step back in 2012 and missed time while failing to finish among the top 20 at his position. Those who dismissed his 2012 as an anomaly were handsomely rewarded last year as McCoy became the centerpiece of Chip Kelly's offense. McCoy led the league in rushing yards (1,607), yards per game (100.4), and yards from scrimmage (2,146) to go along with 11 touchdowns and 53 receptions. At 26 years old, McCoy remains in his prime and should be one of the top picks in any draft this year. (May 24)

Eagles | LeSean McCoy, Trent Cole involved in fight (Mon Jul 28, 12:36 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy and LB Trent Cole squared off in a fight during training camp Sunday, July 27. 'Next thing you know, they're on the ground scuffling,' LB Brandon Graham said. 'It was just a friendly thing, you know. They're always competing and talking stuff to each other. It was just one of those things.' The fight was broken up before any damage was done.

Eagles | LeSean McCoy's workload won't be lightened (Thu Jul 17, 12:24 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is unlikely to be in line for a smaller workload this year after leading the league in carries (314) and touches (366) last year. There were no signs that McCoy's production suffered because of his heavy workload in 2013, and he often mentions that his running style helps him take fewer big hits.

Our View: An important note for fantasy owners here. Some thought with the addition of Darren Sproles there would be a drop in touches for McCoy. At this time, that doesn't sound like the case. McCoy has a current ADP of RB1 (1.02) in 12-team PPR leagues. Sproles is checking in at RB31 (7.01).

Eagles | Chris Polk in line for more carries (Mon Jul 14, 10:24 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk should serve as RB LeSean McCoy's primary backup this year with RB Darren Sproles maintaining a secondary role in the offense, according to ESPN.com's Joe Kaiser.

Our View: Polk is a talented back and a fantastic receiver out of the backfield. He fell undrafted in 2012 due to concerns about chronic shoulder problems that plagued him in college. So long as he's healthy, Polk should be a fine reserve player behind McCoy. With Bryce Brown getting traded to the Bills earlier this offseason, it looks like Polk is the back fantasy owners should handcuff to McCoy. At the very least, Polk should be on your waiver wire speed dial.
