LeSean McCoy explodes again for fantasy owners despite injury scare

Rob Carr

LeSean McCoy logged a monster game once again versus the Redskins, but gave his onlookers a scare after heading to the locker room in the first half with a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy took his fans on a roller coaster ride versus the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Late in the first half, after what had already been a huge day for McCoy on the ground, he exited the game after buckling into the ground without contact, which was later ruled a hamstring injury. It was the second time McCoy left a game this season due to his hamstring, but just like the first time it happened versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, he returned to the game. McCoy finished with 150 total yards and two rushing touchdowns to cap off another monstrous game.

Fantasy Spin: Though McCoy's numbers took a dip in the second half, it should not be of any long-term concern for his fantasy owners. McCoy looked just as shifty and spry as ever, making tacklers miss in space and showcasing his trademark burst. He will have a difficult matchup in Week 13 after his bye against a stout Arizona Cardinals front seven, but there aren't more than two running backs who make better week-to-week starts than McCoy. He's a must-start every week.
