LeSean McCoy has season-worst game for Eagles, fantasy owners

Tom Pennington

The running back didn't score and had his worst yardage of the season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Entering Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy hadn't had worse than nine fantasy points or 92 all-purpose yards in a game this season. Sunday, he was held to 81 yards and only seven fantasy points as the Eagles fell to the Dallas Cowboys 17-3.

McCoy had 55 rushing yards on 18 carries Sunday, adding 26 receiving yards on six receptions. The Eagles' offense struggled to get any traction Sunday, with their only points coming from a second-half field goal.

Fantasy impact: McCoy, like all of his teammates, couldn't get anything going Sunday, but odds are it was more of a one-week aberration than a long-term indictment. The Eagles were fourth in the league in points entering Sunday, so there is no reason to think three-point outings is the new Philadelphia standard.

The Eagles play the Giants, Raiders, Packers, and Redskins in their next four games before their Week 12 bye. Despite a bad game Sunday, McCoy's long-term outlook remains high.
