2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-21-2016 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (7/21): The suspension of Karlos Williams should give a McCoy a better all-around opportunity in 2016. He has three-down ability. If he plays well, he may secure a nice bump in touches.

After five games in 2015, McCoy only had 229 combined yards with seven catches and one TD while missing two games due to a hamstring issue. Over his next eight games played, LeSean regained some of his explosiveness that he showcased in his days in Philly. He gained 921 combined yards with 24 catches and four TDs, which projected over a full season to 280.2 Fantasy points in PPR leagues or a solid back-end RB1. He suffered a knee injury in week 16 limiting him to 37 combined yards while missing week 17 as well. In the offseason, McCoy was involved in an incident in a nightclub in Philly, but no charges were filed. In his career, LeSean has four 1000 yards seasons while only scoring 47 TDs in 102 career games. The Bills attempted 509 rushes in 2015 with RBs delivering 394 runs for 1815 yards and 15 rushing TDs. Karlos Williams is a talented back who will steal goal line TDs and touches from McCoy. This season LeSean should be in line for 250 to 275 touches leading to 1300+ yards and half dozen TDs. I don't view him as an impact back, and his bar should be between 200 to 225 Fantasy points if healthy for 16 games.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
4.04 Matt De Lima - Even if LeSean McCoy isn't close to what he once was and Karlos Williams sees even more work than he did last year, the Bills want to run the ball and McCoy is as safe as they come when drafting your RB3
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
3.04 Two QBs - Salvatore Stefanile - Played in only 10 games last year, but scored the 10th-most PPR PPG. The Bills like to run and if he plays a full 16 games a top-five season isn't out of the question.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.03 So-Called Fantasy Experts - David Gonos - Still just 28 years old, no one can dart through holes like a healthy McCoy. He could also eclipse 50 catches if he can keep that hamstring stretched.
