LeSean McCoy fantasy value looking strong after week of practice

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

LeSean McCoy got in a full week of practice leading up to Eagles-Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy (knee) put in a full week of practice and is probable to face the Steelers on Sunday.

Analysis: There was never really a doubt and McCoy has been one of the more durable backs in the NFL. He is in his fourth year and has only missed two games despite 896 touches of the football. He's a no-brainer start this week even though he faces a usually stout Pittsburgh D. For what it's worth, the Steelers rank just 14th so far against the run. Bryce Brown has emerged as the handcuff to Shady, so if you're a bit of a worrier, Brown could make sense as a grab.
