Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has yet to pass his concussion test. We breakdown the fantasy implications.
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has still not passed his concussion test, per Jeff McClane. Once again, the Eagles feature back will not practice on Wednesday.
Filling in for him has been Bryce Brown, who's done a tremendous job in McCoy's absence. Brown will likely get the start again this week when the Eagles take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Analysis: McCoy will remain sidelined this week, as we're still waiting to see signs of progress. At this point, no one can be sure McCoy will even return by season's end.
Rookie tailback Bryce Brown has been exceptional, and with the season gone, there doesn't seem to be any need to rush McCoy back into the lineup. Brown is a solid flex option this week, but be cautioned, he will be faced with the league's No. 1 run defense.
