Eagles tight ends coach Ted Williams said Thursday that Chip Kelly's offense in the pros will be similar to what he deployed at the University of Oregon. That means a lot of running, and that means LeSean McCoy is looking for big things this season.
"The last few years, I've had good years, but I don't think I was dominant," McCoy said. "In this offense, [I'll have] the ability to run the ball more, where I can take over a game."
McCoy added that Kelly "has shown that he runs the ball tons."
Of course, Kelly was always using multiple running backs at Oregon, so Bryce Brown should play regularly. But McCoy is the biggest benefactor. He is only 25 years old, and outside of last year's concussion, he has been able to stay relatively healthy. He has the speed, quickness and versatility to be the perfect back for Kelly's run-heavy, spread-out, up-tempo scheme. McCoy is a first-round lock in fantasy and should be drafted as high as fourth overall. Brown is worth picking up in the middle rounds as an RB4.
