LeSean McCoy scores twice to keep fantasy owners happy in Week 8

Rich Schultz

LeSean McCoy scored the only two touchdowns for the Eagles in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy only rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries in Week 8, but one touchdown on the ground and another through the air padded his stats against the Falcons. McCoy provided the only two scores for the Eagles all afternoon.

Philadelphia still isn't getting him as involved as they should, but McCoy continues to make the most of the workload he sees.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy managed to score in the fourth quarter on a 7-yard dump-off pass from Vick, which seems to be a recurring theme. The Eagles were stifled on the ground by a team that has given up big yardage to running backs so far in 2012. McCoy couldn't quite get things rolling on Sunday.

He'll take on the Saints next week, and should see plenty of success against their porous defense.
