Quick fantasy outlook: Pop quiz...how many times did the University of Oregon run the ball in 2012? If you answered, "685 times", you get the prize. There seems to be a misconception that Chip Kelly's offense is a spread passing attack, but he's a run first, run second coach. The Ducks ran the ball almost twice as often as they threw it under his watch, and that's great news for LeSean McCoy. McCoy is used to a lighter workload than other franchise backs, because Andy Reid was a pass first coach. Under Kelly, McCoy stands to set career marks for attempts, but not at the expense of his role in the receiving game. McCoy is one of a handful of elite runners in the NFL, and has the talent and opportunity to vie for All Pro and MVP honors if things fall right. McCoy came into the league with a reputation for impatience, but he has evolved into disciplined, versatile runner equally equipped to break a long run to the outside or hammer the interior of a defense while breaking tackles. The only fly in the ointment is McCoy's history with concussions. In today's NFL another concussion could mean significant missed time. You may or may not want to factor that into your draft day planning.
