Summary

Right now, LeSean McCoy is the starter, but he may still be in trouble due to an off-season incident in a Philadelphia bar which left two off-duty police officers injured. So there is always the chance he might yet see suspension. That said, if he doesn't, we expect him to put up a good season. He was on his way to that last year before his 2015 was derailed by injury. Despite missing four games, he totaled 895 yards while catching 32 passes for 292 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He shouldn't see his role degrade too much because of Karlos Williams or rookie Jonathan Williams, so as long as he isn't hurt or in jail, he should bounce back to where he was pre-injury. (May 20)

Bills | Trio of Buffalo RBs see important reps (Wed Jun 15, 10:07 PM) - Buffalo Bills RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams saw the reps in practice Wednesday, June 15, with RBs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams sidelined. Williams was most impressive in the practice, showing surprising ability to shift direction and make defenders miss.

Our View: The rookie Williams could be the guy who has the best chance to make an impact this year but he will need McCoy and Karlos Williams to stumble before he becomes fantasy relevant. For now, he's going as the 261st player off the board in drafts as RB77. If anything you can pick him up late but be prepared to let him go early in the season if you have to make room on your roster.

Bills | LeSean McCoy to be limited in camp (Wed Jun 15, 12:16 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is expected to have his touches limited in training camp next month, according to running backs coach Anthony Lynn. McCoy also said not to expect McCoy in for more than one or two drives in preseason games.

Our View: They'll be careful with him. We hate that he's already banged up but he's already on the mend so we're not really worried much. We see him as a solid RB2, but we do have concerns. Limiting his load in August should help allay those fears.

Bills | LeSean McCoy does limited work (Wed Jun 15, 02:27 AM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) did not take part in team drills at practice Tuesday, June 14, he was able to take part in individual drills and beat writer Joe Buscaglia notes that it appeared McCoy was exploding through the drills quicker than he was last week. Originally the team said McCoy was dealing with a hamstring issue, but he has actually been bothered by an ankle injury.

Our View: We're a little concerned he's banged up already, but are happy he looks to be healing quickly. McCoy looks like a high-end RB2 due to the sheer number of carries he could get in the offense as well as his ability. The rest of the offense could make things tough on him, as might the shaky offensive line, which keeps him from RB1 territory.

Bills | LeSean McCoy has ankle injury (Tue Jun 14, 05:15 PM) - Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is dealing with an ankle injury as opposed to a previously reported hamstring injury, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Our View: Clarity is always a good thing. An ankle injury seems more severe than a hamstring injury...especially if it's a high-ankle sprain. However, this doesn't seem like something that's going to bother him during training camp. Fantasy owners know that McCoy can be an impact player--if healthy.
