LeSean McCoy submits modest fantasy performance in loss

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Shady McCoy came back to earth on Sunday's loss at Denver. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a quiet afternoon in an ugly 52-20 loss to the Broncos, totaling 73 rushing yards on 16 carries to go with one catch for 21 yards.

The Eagles couldn't get the ball moving on the ground like they usually do, but as a team they put up 161 rushing yards on a 4.7 yards-per-carry average. The Broncos are ranked third in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, but that may be due to their ridiculous offense.

The Eagles decided to use a little bit of Chris Polk and Bryce Brown to complement McCoy. Polk scored the only rushing TD on Sunday as part of his three-carry, 33-yard game while Brown put up 19 yards on eight carries.

Fantasy impact: Despite the sub-par game, Shady is leading the NFL in rushing by 47 yards over Adrian Peterson. It's also good news that his leg injury from Week 2 looks to be all cleared up. He's arguably the top asset in fantasy football and we're not worried about Polk or Brown limiting his upside.
