Have you caught your breath? The season hasn’t even started yet. The last 24 hours was action-packed as any in the last four months of the NFL calendar and just when we thought we understood the new landscape, something else would change. The reality is that as we try to gauge the impact of these events, the games in September will change even more than cutdown day events and require even more flexibility and quick reactions on limited information and projections. So keep those brains limber and agile!
LeSean McCoy, RB, KC - He’s getting paid the most, the coach has the most experience with him of anyone in the backfield. I still won’t draft him before “starter” until now Damien Williams, but he should go off of the board no later than the 6th-7th because this is such a rich opportunity. McCoy’s role could easily shrink on performance or injury, and when they play the games he could easily be less effective than Williams and Darwin Thompson and quick fade away. There’s always the possibility that Andy Reid sticks with his comfortable known back or that this situation is so that McCoy excels even in the autumn of his career.
