2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jun-24-2014 by Rob Warner
ARGUABLY THE BEST BACK IN THE GAME: At just 26 years old, McCoy is a popular choice with the No. 1 pick in both dynasty leagues as well as redrafts. In 2013, he set career highs in carries (314) and rushing yards (1,607). He has also topped 50 catches in three of the past four seasons, but that could be in jeopardy with Darren Sproles on board. McCoy has missed six games over his first five seasons, which isn't a whole lot, and will benefit from running behind one of the best offensive lines in the game in Chip Kelly's run-focused offense. In 2013, under Kelly's tutelage, McCoy tallied 11 touchdowns and has 49 scores over five seasons. Although the Eagles will likely scale back his workload, another season with around 2,000 total yards is a distinct possibility as the bell-cow in the one of the game's most efficient offenses.
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy expects five pounds to make a big difference for him this season.
The league's leader in rushing and yards from scrimmage last season said Thursday that he has lost some weight by cutting junk food out of his diet, Specifically, Doritos late at night. He estimates that he is down from 215 pounds to about 210 and is very pleased with the results so far.
"At a lighter [weight], I feel like I'm so much more effective," McCoy said. "I looked at all my old film and saw how much quicker I was when I was 210 [pounds], 209. It's a big difference. And I'm feeling like that again. I've always made plays. Even last year."
McCoy was already one of most elusive backs in the league, if not the most. His cuts are the stuff of legend. He regularly jukes linebackers out of their shoes. Now he feels like he's better? Man, just take him first or second in your draft and please try not to brag.
