Summary

A season ago Bryce Brown was anointed by most fantasy pundits as the dynasty handcuff to LeSean McCoy. But the new coaching staff had other ideas, and traded Brown this offseason to the Buffalo Bills. Chris Polk may not be 2nd on the depth chart thanks to the acquisition of Darren Sproles, but realistically any injury to LeSean McCoy would mean significant snaps for Polk. Sproles isn't a runner, whereas Polk is a traditional two-down back that can handle a pounding both inside and outside of the tackle box. (May 25)

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.
