LeSean McCoy expects to play 'same role as last year'

LeSean McCoy told reporters that he expected to play the same role that he did in 2018. McCoy said, "I mean, I'm a dominant player. I think that speaks for itself. But I'll be in the same role as last year. And I look forward to putting some numbers up and bouncing back from that last season."

Fantasy Impact

By this, McCoy is insinuating that he'll be the leader of the Bills' backfield. While he could enter the season as the team's starter on the depth chart, he should face competition for carries from a number of sources, including veterans Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon as well as rookie third-round pick Devin Singletary. While McCoy was considered a solid RB2 by many entering 2018 drafts, he's now a fringe RB3 as the RB34 in our latest consensus rankings.

LeSean McCoy saves Week 17 outing with touchdown

LeSean McCoy rushed 10 times for 26 yards and a touchdown and caught two of his three targets for 18 yards in the Bills' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

McCoy was out-touched by Chris Ivory in this contest, though the Bills had little to play for, so that should not be a concern. McCoy will be in his age 31 season in 2019, so unless he is on a roster devoid of other RB talent, he will be a tough sell in fantasy drafts. McCoy has had a stellar career, particularly in fantasy football terms, but his time as a potential fantasy starter is likely coming to an end.

LeSean McCoy goes nowhere vs. Pats

LeSean McCoy rushed six times for nine yards and caught all three of his targets for 10 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Patriots. McCoy did not start the game due to a "situation" with coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Impact

McCoy is slowly fading from fantasy relevance, as he isn't the reliable workhorse of years past, and the Buffalo offense is not providing touchdown equity. McCoy could be used based on matchup more than anything for Week 17 if needed, but his floor and ceiling are both in free fall this year.

LeSean McCoy fully practices Thursday

LeSean McCoy was able to fully practice Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

McCoy was sidelined by a hamstring injury Week 15, but he's on track to return against the Patriots. It's not a great matchup considering the Bills are heavy underdogs, but McCoy will still be a volume-based RB2 as teams have had success running against the Patriots this season.

LeSean McCoy limited Wednesday

LeSean McCoy was limited Wednesday. He's dealing with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

McCoy missed Week 15, but he's on track to return this weekend against the Patriots. Given the expected game script, McCoy is nothing more than a volume-based RB2 against New England if he does return this weekend.
