McCoy gets the challenge of facing the top ranked Arizona Cardinals defense this week, but remains confident in his ability to perform. “I’m sure they’ll try to key out and take the run away, but we’ve just got to play ball,” McCoy said. “They’re a good team" (Source: PhiladelphiaEagles.com)

Fantasy Impact: With McCoy having his best game of the season in Week 6 against the Giants running for 149 yards, he now has had an extra week off to prepare for the Cardinals and should be fresh after the Eagles Bye Week.

After three straight weeks of hesitation and no room to run, McCoy found the light on Sunday Night against the Giants. He ran for an impressive 149 yards on 22 carries for a 6.8 yards per carry average.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy looked like his elusive self once again after he previously had every fantasy owner questioning his worth to start the season. McCoy ran hard, followed his blocks and made his own holes as he looked as confident as ever in his running ability. He will get a well deserved rest with the Eagles on a bye Week in Week 7.

With McCoy having a few struggles early in the year, this week's Sunday Night game might just be what he needs to turn things around. Since 2010 McCoy has played in 9 Sunday Night games and carried the ball 187 times for 1,132 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Not only has he played well in those 9 Sunday Night games over his career but he has also played the Giants 3 out of those 9 games. In those 3 games he has 60 carries for 347 rushing yards and 1 touchdown, averaging 5.78 yards per carry. Could Sunday Night be the turning point for the rest of McCoy's 2014 season?

Fantasy Impact: In the previous two weeks, he carried the ball 29 times for 39 yards so this week's game was a step in the right direction. However, it was still a below average performance for McCoy. He is yet to average greater than 4 yards per carry in a game this season. You have to keep plugging away with McCoy, although it has been easy to be disappointed in his results. The Eagles got Lane Johnson back today which looked to open some lanes in the run game so hopefully, things will continue to improve for him as the season moves forward.

The Eagles run game had 12 carries for 22 yards against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday, September 28th, 2014. (Source: Rich Hofmann)

Fantasy Impact: It is now apparent that the Eagles are just getting beat up front with all of the injuries along the offensive line. Head coach Chip Kelly said in his post game press conference that they were beat up front all day despite the 49ers playing zone and rushing only 3 or 4 guys all day. I would continue to be realistic about how productive the team will be on the ground until they are able to get some linemen back healthy up front.

LeSean McCoy gained only 22 yards on the ground in 20 attempts in the Eagles win against division opponent Washington Redskins on Sunday, September 21st, 2014. (Source: Eliot Shorr-Parks)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles offensive line is banged up and McCoy is yet to average over 4 yards per carry in a game this season. The real story may be that McCoy did not catch a single pass in the game therefore limiting his points in ppr formats to only 2. It isn't time to panic yet, but some reduction in production is expected with the current Eagles' offensive line woes.

Fantasy Impact: Despite Darren Sproles strong performance, McCoy is still making fantasy owners happy with another strong showing in week 2.

Eagles' Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis has a sprained left MCL and starting right tackle Allen Barbre is also expected to miss time with a high ankle sprain. No definite timetables have been given as of yet, but Mathis is expected to miss at least a month and Barbre is probably close to that. The likely starters will be Dennis Kelly at left guard and Andrew Gardner at right tackle. The Eagles will get Lane Johnson back at right tackle after he has finished serving his 4 game suspension for his use of performance enhancing drugs. (Source: Les Bowen)

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles will have to adjust upfront but the production of the Eagles' running backs and Nick Foles could decrease for a few weeks until they get back to full strength up front.

With Sproles shining, McCoy took a back seat on Sunday. Even though the Jaguars came to Philadelphia with one of the worst run defenses in the league, the starter ended with just 74 yards on 21 carries and failed to make it to the end zone. "We all struggled," McCoy said. "I didn't feel like myself today. I didn't make the right plays I normally make." (Source: NJ.com)

Fantasy Impact: LeSean McCoy didn't blow up the stat sheet as most people would have expected but he still had a solid game. He touched the ball 27 times, so no reason to panic about Darren Sproles cutting into his workload. Expect McCoy to rebound next week as the Eagles play the Indianapolis Colts Monday Night.

LeSean McCoy was sent for X-rays on his thumb in the first quarter of Thursday's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. McCoy called for the trainer after his first touch on the opening series. NFL Media Insider Jeff Darlington reported X-rays on McCoy's thumb came back negative. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: LeSean McCoy looked good in the limited time he played. He rushed 4 times for 24 yards and had 2 receptions for 26 yards including a 22 yard screen that went for a touchdown.

LeSean McCoy had an injury scare when he missed practice Sunday, August 17th for a problem with what he called “a small version of turf toe.” He had an X-Ray and MRI as a precaution, but is reportedly fine. (Source: Profootballtalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: McCoy is a valuable commodity and top fantasy pick, so any injury news will cause an owner's heart to skip a beat. However, he seems to be in the clear from this injury. Any major injury would propel backup Chris Polk into fantasy relevance, since most McCoy owners probably wouldn't have insured him with the aging scat back Darren Sproles.

McCoy didn't have a big game last week but his overall play is improving fast. The O-line is getting better and he should be poised for a big second half.

We’re a quarter of the way through the 2014 fantasy football season and the dust is starting to settle. Not to make excuses for myself for less than stellar predictions I’ve had in the past, but finding trends with just a week or two sample size is largely inaccurate. Now that we’ve seen a fair amount of football, we can (hopefully) start to make more accurate predictions. Actual...

Any time you get a win it's a great feeling as they are so hard to come by in this league. And anytime you can score a TD while winning it's a really good feeling. Admittedly, I've yet to play my best football but we are right where we want to be as a team in terms of record at 2-0 so I can't complain. Believe me no one puts pressure on me like myself so I'll stay pushing for that signature game. ...

Man, that was not the Philadelphia Eagles’ best game last week. The first half we couldn’t do anything right and the Jacksonville Jaguars could. That team has a lot of young talent, but one player caught my eye: that rookie out The U (Miami), Allen Hurns. That kid is a beast and definitely a fantasy pick. I met him in Miami training this summer and he was real quiet but you could tell ...
