LeSean McCoy Highly Used, Moderately Useful Again, Sell High for Fantasy

Indeed, LeSean McCoy was a fantasy disaster early in 2018; however, he’s finally finding some consistency these past two weeks. Despite playing in the league’s most anemic offense, McCoy has topped 10+ FPs in back-to-back contests thanks to a healthy volume spike. Most recently versus the Texans, Shady carried the ball 16 times for 73 yards (4.56 YPC) while adding 21 yards on 3 catches (5 targets). Though he’s a risky weekly bet with the worst “Surrounding Talent” grade in the game, McCoy still looks like his old shifty self, and can do damage with high volume.

Still, despite remaining one of the last remaining “Workhorses” in the league, McCoy is a recommended “Sell High.” He gets a juicy matchup versus the Colts, who surrender the 10th most FPs to RBs; if he feasts, move him immediately. The Bills average a league worst 12.7 PPG (8.7 over the last three), which completely caps McCoy’s ceiling — rare when you are literally the entire attack.

The only glimmer of hope for McCoy’s long-term value would be a trade. The Eagles are reportedly interested in a reunion, but the Bills ruined fantasy dreams by asking for a second-round pick. For whatever reason, amidst a lost year, Buffalo apparently like his locker room presence. A trade could give Shady long-term life, but if that’s a carrot that helps execute a fair deal (Jarvis Landry, anyone?), execute immediately.
