LeSean McCoy leads NFL with 184 yards in fantasy-friendly win vs. Redskins

Patrick Smith

The Eagles featured their star running back early and often, allowing him 32 touches in the team's 33-27 victory over the Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy carried the ball 31 times for 184 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles 33-27 win over the Redskins.

McCoy simply looked too much for the Redskins defense to handle, routinely finding cutback lanes and making would-be tacklers miss. He had several highlight-worthy runs during the night, but the most memorable one came in the third quarter when he scampered 34 yards into the end zone to put the team up 33-7.

Fantasy Spin: This is what fantasy owners who drafted McCoy in the first round expected to see. The usual elusiveness, coupled with a run-heavy offense tailor-made for his skill set could make McCoy a lock among the top-three running backs this season. His one target in the passing game was not what many owners expected to see, but the fact remains that McCoy will be featured early and often in this new-look Eagles offense.
