Eagles RB LeSean McCoy will play Sunday

Along with Washington's Robert Griffin III, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 is expected to play in Week 16 against the Redskins. McCoy has not played since Nov. 18, back in Week 11. In that time, rookie back Bryce Brown has had some great and not-so-great performances. Brown should still see some carries although no official team announcement has clarified exactly how many. The rookie should see time as a change-of-pace option and little more.

Fantasy Analysis:

McCoy may not have had the type of year fantasy owners were hoping for when they took him with a Top 3 selection, but he is still a must-start across all formats given his abilities as both a runner and receiver. Since this was not a knee, ankle, or some other leg injury, McCoy should be 100-percent physically and treated as such. Washington has been solid against the run (sixth-best run defense) and terrible against the pass (30th-ranked pass defense) so McCoy should accumulate yardage one way or the other.

How deeply do you read into Andy Reid's comments about monitoring McCoy and his workload?

For my last flex spot, I'm trying to decide between Shady, Mikel Leshoure v ATL, Brandon Lloyd v JAC, & Shon Greene v SD
