Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy saw his lowest number of rushing attempts of the season, but he still put together a decent afternoon on Sunday. McCoy finished the game with eight carries for 38 yards. He added five receptions for 68 yards to his day. McCoy's eight carries is unusually low. What's even more unusual is the fact that McCoy was the only Philadelphia running back to carry the ball.
The Minnesota Vikings were expected to struggle against McCoy heading into Week 15, but it was the Eagles who struggled to keep up with the Vikings for most of the day. With the running game practically abandoned, McCoy was used more in the passing game. McCoy's numbers were a far cry from his 217-yard, two-touchdown performance from Week 14.
Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners were likely disappointed with McCoy's numbers after such a huge Week 14. However, 106 all-purpose yards is far from a dud performance. The good news for fantasy owners is that McCoy has a date with the porous Chicago Bears run defense in Week 16. He'll continue as a strong RB1 option moving forward.
