LeSean McCoy practices Wednesday, seems good to go for fantasy

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles running back practiced on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is practicing on Wednesday, according to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer. McCoy says that his ankle is sore, but there's no swelling, so he seems like he's good to go.

McCoy left Thursday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs and went back to the locker room to be examined. He eventually returned to the game, but didn't do much once returning. His absence was missed, though the Eagles probably wouldn't have won that game if he were healthy, given the way things were going.

McCoy has been excellent this season. He's carried the ball 62 times for 395 yards with two touchdowns and a per-carry average of 6.4 yards. He's the NFL's leading rusher, almost a full 100 yards above No. 2 Doug Martin (297). The X-rays given to McCoy looked good, so it seems likely he'll play in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy has been fantastic for fantasy owners this season. The Eagles will face the Denver Broncos and their tough run defense on Sunday, however. McCoy will struggle against Denver, whether he is healthy or not. That said, he should be in your starting lineup regardless. You don't have McCoy on your fantasy team and sit him on the bench, unless there's a very good chance that he won't play. Simple as that.
