LeSean McCoy aims for more explosiveness
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy led the NFL with 1,607 rushing yards last season, but thinks he can do better.

"I want to be more explosive and in better shape," McCoy told Fox Sports. "I want to take over more games in the fourth quarter. Whether if it’s in the air or on the ground, it’s about being productive and effective at all times.

"I do a lot of one-on-one things: one-legged squats, one-legged hops, one-legged jumps. Those kinds of things will help me be more explosive."

McCoy credited coach Chip Kelly for a lot of his success.

"He really lets you be yourself," McCoy said. "The biggest thing I like about him is he’s always trying to find ways to make us better, whether it’s recovery, the training loads. He’ll do whatever it takes to make the athlete better. That’s what I love about him. He’s always trying to make us better."

LeSean McCoy: Darren Sproles will help me be more productive
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who got 366 touches last season, said he'll be fresher thanks to the signing of running back Darren Sproles.

"Signing Sproles helps me out as a running back," McCoy said, per Fox Sports. "I can go in a game even more fresh because I’m getting less carries and less attempts. I had 366 touches, which is a lot. I think me having less attempts can help me be more productive and more deadly. Being fresh in the fourth quarter, things that you don’t think matter really do make a big difference.

“Now defenses have another guy that they have to prepare for. They have to watch out for so many different things, and it’s hard. They only get a week to prepare for us.”

No need to worry about LeSean McCoy's Fantasy ranking
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The addition of Darren Sproles to the Eagles running back corps might sound scary at first when you think about LeSean McCoy's prospects, but the reality is that the Eagles do so much with running backs that it shouldn't sink McCoy too much.

McCoy had 314 carries and 52 catches last year. The rest of the Eagles' running backs combined for 86 carries and 12 catches. While there was probably a concern in Philadelphia to reduce McCoy's touches, the arrival of Sproles shouldn't signal anything close to a 50/50 or even 70/30 split. Remember, Sproles' best work in New Orleans came as a receiver out of the backfield, not as a pure rusher. I would be surprised if McCoy lost any more than five percent of his rushing workload and maybe 15-20 percent of his receiving workload. 

Sheil Kapada of Philadelphia Magazine suggests, it's unlikely McCoy will see a significant decrease in work in 2014 and I agree. McCoy should land with at least 300 touches while Sproles settles for roughly 110 touches. The backups on the roster will probably cobble together another 50 touches. 

I think it's fair to ballpark McCoy for 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's no longer the top overall player for me in Fantasy -- that goes back to Jamaal Charles -- but he's still in the Top 3.

Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.
