Eagles HC Andy Reid thinks RB LeSean McCoy has a chance next week

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid informed reporters Monday that running back LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 has a "chance" to play in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins. The former Pittsburgh Panther has been medically cleared to return after weeks off due to a concussion. McCoy hasn't played in a full month though. Rookie Bryce Brown @BryceBrown_34 has excelled at times and with little to play for, the Eagles may opt to severely limit McCoy's playing time and touches should he play.

Fantasy Analysis:

Fantasy owners who have remained patient with McCoy could be rewarded if they still have something to play for in their leagues. He has 985 total yards and five TDs on the year. If he's healthy enough to play, he is worth at least a flex play despite the obvious risks. We are still talking about one of the best players in the league in an offense led by a rookie QB. Obviously they'd lean on McCoy if he was in the starting lineup.

Assuming McCoy plays, do I have him in my flex or Cecil Shorts? Shorts has a great matchup and I'm worried that McCoy and Brown may split.

Championship weekend! Andy Reid has now said McCoy is starting. “When you’re healthy, you play,” Reid said, via the Philadelphia Daily News. Also more time he plays with Foles the better they are for it. They are the future of that team. Needing a little help with this one for the flex spot.

leaning towards going for broke and starting Shady. No guts no glory, right?
