Eagles RB LeSean McCoy unlikely to play, RB Bryce Brown in line for start

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 is not expected to play in Week 13 as he continues to recover from a concussion, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane. This gives rookie Bryce Brown another opportunity to start after he rushed for 178 yards on 19 carries and two TDs. Brown also lost two fumbles, which could lead to Dion Lewis @DionLewis28 to seeing more action against Dallas next week. The Eagles have lost seven straight and haven't won a game since September.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Eagles are a mess but Brown did play very well which is at least a good sign for the future. He broke a huge 65-yard run in the second quarter and added another score in the third. Fantasy owners should be all over him since Michael Vick @MikeVick might return on Sunday. If that's the case, running lanes should be easier come to by. Philadelphia in general should be avoided by fantasy owners though. There's just not enough consistency for any player to live up to expectations.
