Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy will start in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins, coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday. McCoy hasn't played since being carted off the field after suffering a concussion in Week 11 gainst Washington. Bryce Brown has started in McCoy's place.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should not expect for McCoy to get a full workload but he has to be considered an upgrade over Brown at this point. Brown had two outstanding weeks and has not done a whole lot since.
McCoy should be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back, while Brown should be considered a No. 3 or low-end flex play for Week 16.
