Player Outlook

LeSean McCoy had mixed results in his first year in Buffalo in 2015, and he will look to play better this season. McCoy had 203 carries for 895 yards and three touchdowns and 32 catches for 292 yards and two touchdowns. It was the first time he failed to rush for 1,000 yards since 2012, and he was limited to 12 games due to two separate leg injuries. He also split time with rookie Karlos Williams, and the Bills could reduce his workload again this year with a combination of Williams, Mike Gillislee and rookie Jonathan Williams. However, with Karlos Williams being suspended for the first four games of the year for violating the league's substance abuse policy, that could allow McCoy to get off to a good start and prove he shouldn't come off the field much. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 Fantasy running back worth drafting in Round 2 or 3 in the majority of leagues.

  • Bills' LeSean McCoy: Checks in at 210 pounds
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCoy (ankle) said he weighs about 210 pounds, which is the lightest he has reported to training camp in years, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports. McCoy presumably drops some pounds during camp each year, as his current weight is right around his usual listed playing weight. This probably doesn't mean much for fantasy owners, but the Bills should still be happy to get a piece of good news regarding their backfield, after Karlos Williams (suspension) and rookie Jonathan Williams (pending DWI charges) both had poor offseasons. The team is expected to add Reggie Bush (knee), who isn't a real threat to McCoy at this stage of their respective careers. If he stays healthy, the former Eagle could be headed for his heaviest workload in years. There hasn't been a meaningful update on the ankle injury that bothered McCoy this summer, but it still won't be a surprise if he's a limited participant early in camp.

  • According to a league spokesman, the NFL will not take action against McCoy (ankle) for his alleged involvement in a Philadelphia nightclub fight in February, Bills' writer Vic Carucci reports. This was expected, as no one could prove McCoy was directly involved in the injuries off-duty police officers sustained in the fight. McCoy could still face sanctions from the Bills if they decide to punish him for the incident, but he's now in the clear legally and with the NFL.

  • Bills' LeSean McCoy: AG closes investigation
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Pennsylvania Attorney General has closed its investigation of McCoy's (ankle) involvement in an alleged fight at a Philadelphia nightclub back in February, NFL.com reports. While the NFL is still reviewing the incident, it's thought that the running back will not be punished, as no one can prove McCoy was directly involved in off-duty police officers being injured in the brawl. The running back's attorney maintains McCoy was merely trying to break up a fight between his group and the officers.

  • Bills' LeSean McCoy: Handle with care
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Bills are going to limit McCoy (ankle) in training camp and may try to keep his preseason reps limited to one or two drives, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. Said running backs coach Anthony Lynn said this is "by design," adding, "[to] keep him fresh, going into his eighth year, [there is] a lot of miles on those legs. So we'll do the same thing without training camp with him." Hamstring and knee issues held McCoy back in his first season with the Bills, so given his experience and the fact that's he's already nicked up, this seems like a smart tact. Even though McCoy has been relatively healthy over the course of his career - he's played in 15 or 16 games in five of his seven NFL seasons - he'll carry some injury risk if you take him in the first two rounds of your draft. That said, his upside remains high, given his skill set (his cuts looked great when healthy last season), while the Bills have one of the league's better offensive lines and lean heavily toward the run.

  • Head coach Rex Ryan said McCoy is dealing with an ankle injury, rather than the hamstring injury that was previously reported, Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News reports. Ryan said he misspoke when discussing the injury last week. While it isn't believed to be anything serious, there is actually significance to the latest update, as McCoy was persistently bothered by his hamstring for the first half of last season. He later dealt with shoulder and knee injuries and ultimately played just 12 games, yet still managed 1,187 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns, with 4.4 yards per carry (203 attempts) and 9.1 per reception (32 catches, 50 targets). McCoy did all that despite sometimes ceding second-half work to Karlos Williams, who reportedly showed up to minicamp out of shape. The early rumblings are worth keeping an eye on, but the Bills will likely enter training camp with the backfield among the least of their concerns. Rookie fifth-rounder Jonathan Williams should further bolster a strong group.
