LeSean McCoy Fantasy Football News 2017

11:12am EST 12/3/17

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee) is active for today's game against the Patriots. He was held out on Friday with what HC Sean McDermott called “knee soreness,” but McCoy wasn’t even listed on the final injury report. He’s safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy was held out of Friday's practice with what HC Sean McDermott deemed "knee soreness." McCoy isn't listed on the final injury report, though, so the team fully expects him to play against the Patriots. We'll check on his status on Sunday morning, but McCoy is fine to keep penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy isn't listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He was held out of Friday's practice with a sore groin, but HC Sean McDermott said that he's "very confident" that McCoy will be able to handle a full workload vs. Carolina. We'll keep an eye on his always-shaky durability, but McCoy is safe to keep in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy was held out of Friday's practice with what HC Sean McDermott called groin "soreness." McDermott added that it was scheduled to be a rest day for McCoy anyway. "There doesn't sound to be concern about McCoy's status for Sunday's game," ESPN's Mike Rodak wrote. We'll keep an eye on this, but keep Shady penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but returned to a full workout on Friday. McCoy is a strong bet for 20+ touches in Sunday’s home game against the Jets.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy missed Thursday's practice with an illness, according to insider Joe Buscaglia. We'll see if McCoy is able to get back on the field tomorrow, but there's no reason to worry about his Week 1 status at this point.

The Bills have signed RB Mike Tolbert. The notorious TD vulture has 45 scores on 833 career touches, although just 5 of those TDs have come over the last 3 seasons. Tolbert is 31 now and certainly won't be a 2017 fantasy option in Buffalo. But he could prove frustrating to LeSean McCoy owners.

The Bills have hired Rick Dennison as OC. Dennison spent the past 2 years as Denver's OC under Gary Kubiak -- and also coordinated Kubiak's Texans offenses from 2010 to 2013. It's notable that Dennison worked with Tyrod Taylor as Baltimore's QB coach in 2014. We'll see if Taylor is Dennison's QB in Buffalo in 2017 and beyond.

The Bills have hired Sean McDermott as their HC. He's spent the past 8 seasons as a defensive coordinator -- 1st in Philadelphia, then in Carolina -- but has no HC experience. McDermott and the Bills should make an OC hire within the next couple of weeks.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Jets. It's a tough break for those who used him in fantasy lineups -- he finished with just 16 scoreless yards -- but the injury shouldn't impact his 2017 offseason. McCoy was as good as ever this year, averaging a career-best 5.5 yards per carry and scoring 14 total TDs. He turns 29 in July but has shown no signs of slowing down.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy injured his lower right leg in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets. Trainers appeared to be looking at his ankle on the sidelines before he was carted back to the locker room. We'll update McCoy's status when we learn more.

Update: McCoy has an ankle injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Update: McCoy's status has been updated to "possible return."

The Bills have fired HC Rex Ryan and DC Rob Ryan. The news is only surprising in that it came before this weekend's season finale. Ryan finishes his 2-year Bills tenure with a 15-16 record. OC Anthony Lynn will take over as interim HC and reportedly has a shot to earn the full-time gig next season.

The forecast for today's Browns-Bills game calls for a slight chance of snow but winds of 20-30 mph. That's certainly enough to impact the passing games. Hopefully you're not relying on any part of Cleveland's passing attack. Downgrade Bills QB Tyrod Taylor and WR Sammy Watkins a tad, but both are still fine fantasy starters. Expect a heavy dose of RB LeSean McCoy today.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy performed for fantasy owners with 6 grabs for 81 yards. He added just 12 carries for 27 yards in snowy conditions vs. Pittsburgh, although he found the end zone from 3 yards out in garbage time. He’s now reached 16 PPR points in 4 of his last 5 outings. Next up is a dream date against the Browns. They just surrendered 142 total yards and 1 score to Jeremy Hill.

The forecast for today's Steelers-Bills game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and winds of 10-15 mph. Those certainly aren't ideal conditions for the passing and kicking games, but it's also not enough for us to lower the projections for anyone involved. Use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked guys.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. The thumb issue might impact his pass-catching ability, but he’s expected to be a full-go on the ground.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) will play against the Jaguars today. Rapoport adds that McCoy "may actually get more carries than usual with RB Mike Gillislee out." So it doesn't sound like the thumb will limit his rushing role. We'll see about his involvement in the passing game, but McCoy is safe to lock into fantasy lineups.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (thumb) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He was limited in practice all week and was still sporting a "huge wrap" on that injured thumb on Friday, per insider Joe Buscaglia. McCoy is expected to play vs. Jacksonville, but the thumb issue certainly adds some risk. For what it’s worth, HC Rex Ryan said Friday that McCoy should be “ready to get the majority of the reps.” RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) is out for Week 12, leaving Reggie Bush and Jonathan Williams as McCoy's backups.
