Week 8- The Falcons are very vulnerable on the ground, and the Eagles should run it down their throat. Key word: Should. For some reason Andy Reid refuses to use McCoy as much as he should, and then admits he should have used him more after the game. I think Reid won’t be able to resist running the ball consistently in this one, and McCoy is locked in as a RB1.
Week 6- Don’t be scared away by McCoy’s slow start to the season. Keep him in your lineup as your RB1.
Week 5- McCoy is a superstar, we know that much. Even though he is facing the Steelers, you still need to keep him in your lineup as a RB1.
Week 4- The Giants have a solid Run Defense, but you need to start McCoy every week. After Andy Reid admitted he did not run the ball enough in week 3, you can expect him to hand the ball to McCoy more and more often this week. He’s an obvious RB1 for this week.
Week 3- I know, I know. We said this last week as well about Ridley against Arizona, but the Eagles should be up almost all game. That means a lot of running the ball, and that means a lot of McCoy. Obviously your going to want to have McCoy in your starting lineup every week, and this could end up as a big game for him.
Week 1- It didn’t feel right putting McCoy with a really nice matchup at #4. Don’t think for a second that we’re considering McCoy an elite option in week 1. He is a must-start no matter who he plays, and a matchup against a weak Browns defense just leaves the door wide open for a huge game. He broke down a bit at the end of last season, and now that he’s fresh you can expect a great game every game.
LeSean McCoy was one of the top RB’s in 2011, and is projected to once again run wild in 2012. With defenses concentrating on Michael Vick and the electric wide receivers corps, McCoy should find plenty of space to run and catch, and in PPR formats he is our #1 overall RB, narrowly in front of Arian Foster of the Houston Texans. Chances are Foster will go first in your draft, and we recommend McCoy with the second pick come draft day.
