LeSean McCoy has been one of the best running backs in fantasy football this year, at least when looking at the value received from the running backs selected early in August's fantasy drafts. McCoy wasn't quite able to live up to the impressive performances his owners probably expect from him on Sunday night, but the Philadelphia Eagles dynamo still had a solid game.
McCoy rushed 23 times for 113 yards against the New York Giants in a 17-10 victory on Sunday Night Football, but he was held out of the end zone for the first time this season. McCoy's longest run, a 60-yard jaunt late in the fourth quarter to seal the game, almost ended up in the end zone -- but it was apparently just not meant to be.
The Eagles' starting running back was actually better last season with Michael Vick in the lineup than he was without, meaning fantasy owners probably should have tempered their expectations for McCoy considering backup quarterback Vince Young was starting under center in Week 11.
