LeSean McCoy makes fantasy impact in his return

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy totaled 1222 yards of offense in his first game back after missing a month with a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy made an impact in his first game back from a concussion against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. McCoy had 13 carries for 45 yards and nine receptions for 77 yards, but it wasn't enough for the Eagles, who lost 27-20.

McCoy had not played since he suffered a concussion the last time the Eagles played the Redskins on Nov. 18. He returned to his starting role, replacing Bryce Brown, who received just four carries and had zero receptions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: There was some concern about how much McCoy and Brown would split touches, but McCoy showed that he is clearly still the number one option in Philly. He failed to find the end zone, but got enough yards to be productive and really came through in PPR leagues with nine receptions.

The lack of touchdowns is a concern for McCoy, but he is the top back and will receive the majority of the touches going forward.
