LeSean McCoy rewards fantasy owners with 155 rushing yards on Sunday

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

LeSean McCoy rushed for 155 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

It was business as usual for LeSean McCoy on Sunday. McCoy rushed for 155 yards as the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Green Bay Packers, 27-13. He added one reception for six yards to his stat line. He was largely absent from the passing game with just one target, but quarterback Nick Foles only attempted 18 passes on the afternoon. The Eagles held a lead throughout the entire game. As a result, there was more emphasis on eating clock and wearing down Green Bay's defense throughout the afternoon. Backup running back Bryce Brown saw just four carries for 11 yards.

Fantasy impact: Despite the fact that he couldn't find the end zone for a fifth straight game, fantasy owners have to feel a bit relieved with McCoy's performance. There was some concern that McCoy's usage was declining with Foles under center. Those concerns should be a thing of the past, as McCoy saw 25 carries on Sunday. He'll remain an elite RB1 moving forward, and he faces a generous Washington Redskins run defense in Week 11.
