LeSean McCoy rewards fantasy owners with 92 yards and a touchdown

Maddie Meyer

LeSean McCoy managed 92 all-purpose yards along with a touchdown on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy continued rewarding fantasy owners on Sunday. The Eagles' star running back rushed for 46 yards and a touchdown along with six receptions for 46 yards. The bulk of McCoy's production was in the first half before Nick Foles relieved an injured Michael Vick. McCoy's biggest gain in the second half was a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter. Backup running back Bryce Brown was given several opportunities at the end of the game, but didn't make much of an impact.

Fantasy impact: It remains to be seen whether or not McCoy's production will truly suffer without Michael Vick complementing the run game. Whether it was a coincidence or not, he wasn't able to find many lanes with Foles under center. Regardless of who will be Philadelphia's signal caller in Week 6, McCoy remains an elite RB1. He'll continue to play a role in the passing game whenever defenses are able to contain the Eagles on the ground. McCoy now has 514 rushing yards, two touchdowns, and 186 receiving yards through five games.
