LeSean McCoy Racks Up Fantasy Points, Doesn't Score

LeSean McCoy racks up the touches. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy moved the ball effectively on his 20 carries for 110 carries while adding six catches for 22 yards in the victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Analysis: The only thing missing from the big fantasy day was a score. 26 touches while your quarterback puts it up 56 times is a testament that McCoy owners should not be worried about his workload being limited. He was projected to be our top back this week, but next week fantasy owners won't be so lucky as they take on the Ravens. Obviously, there's absolutely no reason to bench one of the best players in fantasy football.
