2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jun-24-2014 by Rob Warner
ARGUABLY THE BEST BACK IN THE GAME: At just 26 years old, McCoy is a popular choice with the No. 1 pick in both dynasty leagues as well as redrafts. In 2013, he set career highs in carries (314) and rushing yards (1,607). He has also topped 50 catches in three of the past four seasons, but that could be in jeopardy with Darren Sproles on board. McCoy has missed six games over his first five seasons, which isn't a whole lot, and will benefit from running behind one of the best offensive lines in the game in Chip Kelly's run-focused offense. In 2013, under Kelly's tutelage, McCoy tallied 11 touchdowns and has 49 scores over five seasons. Although the Eagles will likely scale back his workload, another season with around 2,000 total yards is a distinct possibility as the bell-cow in the one of the game's most efficient offenses.
While being interviewed at Super Bowl Radio Row on Thursday, Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he didn't "want to take less money" in order to keep the current team together. At $11.95 million for 2015, McCoy's cap number will be the second-highest of any running back in the league. Philadelphia is expected to retain the stud back, but the organization would save $7.55 million if he was released. Understanding that a pay cut would free up enough cash to bring back some of his teammates, McCoy remains adamant about being paid what he was initially promised.Fantasy Analysis:
If McCoy isn't open to at least restructuring his deal, the Eagles will have trouble bringing No. 1 WR Jeremy Maclin back. Shady managed to stay relatively healthy for the whole of 2013 and 2014, but his productivity dipped this past season. McCoy remains a stud, but Maclin had a career year. It'll be interesting to see how far Philly will go to keep both of its stars in the City of Brotherly Love.
