LeSean McCoy: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

McCoy was officially traded to the Bills on Tuesday in exchange for Kiko Alonso.

McCoy will sign a new five-year contract with the Bills, after his trade from the Eagles is completed, the Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The deal will reportedly net McCoy $16 million in 2015 and $26.5 million guaranteed, along with $40 million overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCoy's trade to the Bills can't become official until Tuesday, but along with the trade will come a new contract that's believed to award him more guaranteed money up front. The Bills went with a committee at running back in the past few seasons with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, with a little mix of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon as well last season. McCoy will give them the possibility of a feature back, though the 26-year-old fell short of most of his expectations heading into the 2014 season.
McCoy has been traded to Buffalo in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCoy would have represented nearly a $12 million cap hit for the Eagles in 2015, but they'll instead ship him out of town in a move (which is slated to become official next week) that significantly bolsters their defense. The 26-year-old back was one of the top players taken in standard fantasy drafts in 2014, but he didn't really live up to that ADP, rushing for 1,319 yards and recording just five combined touchdowns. His projected fantasy value takes a bit of a hit in Buffalo, where a slower-paced team will mean fewer opportunities for touches. On the bright side, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both on expiring contracts, so McCoy may be able to earn the elusive title of "feature" back. He'll still have to hold off Anthony Dixon and former teammate Bryce Brown for touches, however.

McCoy had 17 carries for 99 yards and one catch for 15 yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants. He left the game late in the fourth quarter with a left knee injury.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCoy was able to walk off the field under his own power and was moving around fairly well on the sidelines, so this doesn't seem like an injury that will linger deep into the offseason. McCoy started slow in 2014, but he got going eventually, finishing with 1,319 rushing yards, 155 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He should again be a first-round pick in most fantasy leagues in 2015.

2015

2014

Aside from Nick Foles, McCoy was perhaps the greatest beneficiary of the Chip Kelly offense last year. He easily posted the best campaign of his career – his first in which he averaged more than 100 rushing yards per game – and with his outstanding pass-catching abilities, he established himself as the top dual-threat back in the league and was particularly golden in PPR formats. Although McCoy has shrugged off Barry Sanders comparisons, it's worth noting that Sanders himself only exceeded McCoy's total of 2,146 yards from scrimmage last season two times. It's also hard to stereotype McCoy as merely an elusive runner – he also showed a lot of power, finishing with a career-high 51 broken tackles last year, second only to Marshawn Lynch . While his role as the Eagles' top runner is not in doubt, there's reason to believe McCoy will take a step back following his first 300-carry season. That reason is Darren Sproles, the super-talented pass-catching back whom the Eagles acquired from the Saints in March. Philadelphia's coaching staff will likely deploy Sproles in the same way New Orleans did, which makes it likely that McCoy will see his pass targets reduced this year. Further, the Eagles will likely be cognizant of potentially overusing McCoy, who hadn't played 16 games in any of the prior three seasons before last year; it's unlikely he hits 300 carries again in 2014. Nonetheless, McCoy went into the offseason 100 percent healthy and has firmly established himself as one of the truly elite running backs in the game. Even if Sproles and third-stringer Chris Polk take a good number of touches from McCoy, the rest they'll afford him may make it worthwhile as he looks to stay healthy and deliver another Pro Bowl campaign as a featured cog in the Eagles' balanced spread attack.

2013

McCoy was bound to regress from his 20-touchdown 2011, but five scores last year – two rushing – was a bigger letdown than most expected. McCoy missed four games with a concussion and averaged a three-year low 4.2 YPC thanks to a beat-up offensive line and an ineffective passing game. He still averaged more than 100 yards from scrimmage, though, and should be highly productive in new coach Chip Kelly’s spread offense this season. A bigger concern is the emergence of Bryce Brown, who displayed big-play ability in McCoy's absence. The Eagles will use both players, though as the incumbent and better all-around back, McCoy doesn't appear in danger of a dramatic loss in fantasy value. Plus, McCoy is also the better receiver – in only 12 games, he had 67 targets, seventh among running backs.

2012

McCoy had a monster 2011, totaling 1,624 yards and easily leading all backs with 20 touchdowns (five more than any other). After seeing the third-most snaps the year prior and despite sitting out Week 17, McCoy finished with the most snaps among all running backs in football last season. Although he caught 30 fewer balls and saw his receiving yards nearly cut in half compared to 2010, his 14 carries for 20-plus yards led all backs. After getting just 11 attempts at the goal line over his first two years in the league, McCoy got 21 carries there last season, converting nine for scores. He no longer appears to be in danger of being removed from the field in any situation, and the Eagles are certainly capable of providing many scoring opportunities. Head coach Andy Reid has stated he wants to lessen McCoy’s workload, but there are few viable alternatives on the roster, and it’s not like last year’s 273 carries were exorbitant. A healthy year from Michael Vick and a bounce-back campaigns from DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin would likely lead to big offensive production in Philly, and McCoy would benefit. Although with his skills, he’s not overly dependent on team context. McCoy signed a five-year, $45 million contract in May, with $20.8 million guaranteed, so unlike Ray Rice, Maurice Jones-Drew and Matt Forte, he’ll be a happy and willing participant all spring and summer.

2011

After a nondescript rookie campaign, McCoy totaled 1,672 yards with nine touchdowns last year. He gained 5.2 YPC, and his 78 receptions easily led all running backs (and his 592 receiving yards trailed only Arian Foster). There’s some concern about McCoy’s touchdown potential since he received just six goal-line carries, but he also led all backs with 15 targets in the red zone, including four inside the five-yard line. Add those targets in the passing game to his six carries, and you get the same amount of goal-line attempts as Steven Jackson and Matt Forte (and one more than Brandon Jacobs). Moreover, McCoy is highly elusive and explosive, as his five rushes for 40-plus yards led the NFL, so he’s capable of scoring from anywhere on the field. McCoy only received 207 rushing attempts last year, but his 837 snaps tied for the third most among running backs, and that was with him sitting out Week 17 because Philadelphia had nothing to play for. It’s clear the Eagles rely on him heavily, and it’s a safe bet his rushing attempts increase during his third year in the league. McCoy also has the benefit of playing in a terrifically schemed Andy Reid offense that features Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Just 23, McCoy has the upside to finish as the top fantasy back in 2011.

2010

McCoy wasn’t considered a bust during his rookie season, but he was asked to start four games thanks to more injuries from Brian Westbrook, and the organization ultimately came away disappointed in its second-round pick. Still, a 4.1 YPC mark isn‘t awful, and he was never given more than 20 carries in a game, so it’s not like he was truly afforded an opportunity to put up big stats. McCoy is never going to be Westbrook as a receiver, but 40 catches for 308 receiving yards while learning the pro game suggests he could fit quite nicely into Andy Reid’s West Coast Offense. Westbrook is gone, but the team signed Mike Bell during the offseason, so a full workload is hardly guaranteed in 2010. Philly has a lot of playmakers on offense, as Kevin Kolb fits Reid’s preferred WCO even more than the departed Donovan McNabb (and a raw QB could also lead to more rushing attempts), while DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Brent Celek are dangerous weapons as receivers. The Eagles have finished as a top-six scoring offense in three of the past four years, so this is a system with upside. However, Michael Vick’s presence is concerning, since he could become a TD vulture in the red zone. But McCoy impressed during minicamp, showing up slimmer and exhibiting more explosiveness. He’s in the right situation to succeed, so it’s up to him to fulfill that potential.

2009

McCoy totaled 1,793 yards with 21 touchdowns for the University of Pittsburgh last season and possesses a similar skill set to Brian Westbrook, with terrific pass-catching ability. He needs to work on his blocking, but McCoy should immediately become Westbrook’s backup in Philadelphia. Since Westbrook has never played 16 games in a season, there’s a good chance McCoy will get an opportunity at some point, and given the kind of upside that comes with being the lead back in Philadelphia, there’s big potential here. He’s a must handcuff for Westbrook owners.
