LeSean McCoy can't score, but managed 100 yards for Eagles, fantasy owners

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles running back had his worst game in a month Sunday, but he still had his value. We break down the fantasy implications.

Running back LeSean McCoy was not immune to the Philadelphia Eagles team-wide malaise in Weeks 7 and 8, producing only 12 fantasy points in the two weeks combined. Outside of that stretch, though, McCoy has been as good as any running back in the game, and even his middling games, like Sunday's, offer production. McCoy didn't score Sunday, but topped 100 total yards as the Eagles beat the Arizona Cardinals, 24-21.

McCoy had 79 rushing yards on 19 carries Sunday, adding 36 receiving yards on five catches. It was McCoy's eighth game with more than 100 yards from scrimmage in 12 games this season; three of his sub-100-yard games have been Eagles losses.

Fantasy impact: This is, for all intents and purposes, as bad as it gets for McCoy, and he still offered 10 fantasy points to his owners. With a bunch of bad defenses on the Eagles' schedule down the stretch, there might not be a running back in football fantasy owners would like more than McCoy for the rest of 2013.
