Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy carried the ball just 13 times in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy carried the ball just 13 times in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals but declined to criticize the play calling after the game. McCoy said (via The Philaldelphia Inquirer) that he just goes with the plays that are drawn up, and added that the offense just needs to do better. McCoy finished with 70 rushing yards.

Fantasy Imact: Sunday's game against Arizona seemed like an opportunity to exploit McCoy, especially with top wide receiver Jeremy Maclin inactive because of a hip injury. Only four of McCoy's carries came in the first half and by halftime the Eagles trailed 24-0. Expect McCoy to get more chances in Week 4 against the New York Giants.
