Summary

LeSean McCoy only missed one game last season, after missing four in 2015. As a result, he was back over 1,000 yards on the ground. He added in 13 touchdowns - the second highest total in his career - and 51 receptions for 356 yards. As the Bills will continue to pound the ball, McCoy is going to see numbers like that again, assuming he stays healthy. We have no reason to believe he'll miss more than a game or two, so it's a safe bet he's going to produce. Speaking of health, if the Bills have injuries at receiver again McCoy will likely a lot more catches than your average running back. That's part of what he does already, of course, but it's worth noting that if Sammy Watkins goes down, there's only a rookie and unproven players to take up the slack. That could mean a very high rate of catches for McCoy. (May 22)

Bills | LeSean McCoy doesn't plan to slow down (Fri Jul 21, 11:27 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy said he still feels young and owes his longevity to his ability to avoid big hits.

Our View: McCoy looked like he was slowing down in his last year with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia, but he has been keying one of the best running games in the league the last two years in Buffalo. He's a solid late first-round pick in drafts.

Bills | LeSean McCoy excited for offense (Thu Jul 13, 09:13 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy said he is excited about the zone running scheme offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is implementing this year. 'With this offense they give you different options whether it's inside or outside,' McCoy said. 'When you want to stretch it, you can stretch it just enough to get the DBs where you want them so you can cut inside.'

Our View: Dennison is a Shanahan/Kubiak disciple and the zone-blocking system is a perfect fit for McCoy. The choice is to "bend, bang or bounce" as the offensive line moves laterally in front of the back. McCoy is an expert at knowing when/how to run with proper patience in that system. He's a top-5 fantasy back already, but we wouldn't be shocked to see him finish the year as the best RB in fantasy football.
