The Muscle Hamster fell out of favor early last year, but he did gain some momentum with two strong performances to end the year. He's still a guy to watch.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

He's the face of Buffalo's ground and pound offense. The difficulty is in deciding if thats a good thing or not.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

This is a make or break year for Martin, as the Buccaneers declined to pick up his 2016 option. I think he will be the lead back in Tampa Bay, but it is going to be a frustrating committee there this season.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

McCoy had a "down season" last year with 1,319 yards rushing and 5 rushing touchdowns. Part of his problem is the Eagles offensive line was a mess and he also did not live up to expectations. He has a fresh start in Buffalo and is likely to see 300 carries or more this season.

Rex Ryan loves to run the football and he is going to feed McCoy. McCoy played with a bit of turf-toe last year, but should now be fully healthy again. McCoy also has great hands and will no doubt be getting a ton of dump-offs so if you are in a PPR league you will benefit.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Projected RB1 but hard to like with a 3.6 YPC average and just 3 TDs over the last two years.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

Coach Ryan's run-first attack a plus, but new offense/QB situation much weaker than Philly's.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

 
McCoy is a tough nut to crack for prognosticators this season. We know he has tremendous ability, but had a sharp decline in efficiency last season with a 4.2 yards per carry mark and just five total touchdowns on 312 carries. McCoy's workload should remain high in Buffalo, but the number of plays run and red zone attempts should drop considerably under offensivecoordinator Greg Roman whose 49er offense ranked 19th in total rushing attempts last season despite being a run heavy team. Add in the fact that the Bills will be scraping the barrel for a quarterback and McCoy will be dependent on volume, which thankfully should come, but his ceiling is much lower in Buffalo than it could have been in Philadelphia.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

 
I don't see McCoy getting many balls thrown his way but he should see plenty of touches on the ground. Rex Ryan has himself a true RB1 to work with.
