LeSean McCoy maintains fantasy value in the passing game for Week 9

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Shady McCoy rushed for just 44 yards, but added 36 receiving yards and a touchdown to his Week 9 performance. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy didn't light up the stat sheet on Sunday, but he put together a serviceable afternoon in Sunday's 49-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders. McCoy carried the ball just 12 times for 44 yards. He also caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. Despite the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles dominated the scoreboard, the team only rushed the ball 24 times. Nick Foles simply couldn't be stopped attacking the Raiders in the air. Foles threw for 406 yards and seven touchdowns on Sunday. The Eagles had enough of a lead to give running back Bryce Brown eight touches, which also diminished McCoy's Week 9 output.

Fantasy impact: Owners were spared a poor output from McCoy when he caught a 25 touchdown pass in the third quarter. Foles likely won't see the same success in the passing game on a weekly basis, so owners shouldn't worry about a potential decline from McCoy moving forward. The last time Foles played well was in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins, and McCoy eclipsed 100 yards that week. The Eagles face the Green Bay Packers in Week 10. If the running game is limited against the Packers, McCoy figures to maintain a prominent role in the passing game. He'll remain a RB1 moving forward, as expected.
