McCoy rushed 19 times for 63 yards and caught six passes for 26 yards in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati.
McCoy, surprisingly, has yet to score this season, and you can add one more game to that when you count Week 17 of 2016. That's almost unheard of for a player who was taken within the top 10 or so picks of almost any draft. McCoy remains a major part of the offense, and his 468 yards from scrimmage through five games are nothing to sneeze at, but the Bills just can't get their running game working like they did the last few seasons. McCoy will get to rest any nicks and bruises for two weeks as the Bills get their bye in Week 6, then they get the Buccaneers at home in Week 7.
McCoy rushed 20 times for 76 yards and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
The 108 yards from scrimmage is nice and was typical Shady, as his work on the field certainly helped the Bills to an upset victory. On the negative, he still hasn't scored a touchdown this season and the Bills haven't been able to run over teams in a way they did last season. Still, the running game looked like it started to click more Sunday compared to the previous two weeks, and as the Bills get more comfortable with the new zone-blocking scheme, there may be more productive days ahead for McCoy. It could be a good time to acquire him from an impatient owner.
McCoy has been nicked up a few times this season, but he'll be as healthy as can be expected heading into Week 4's matchup against the Falcons. Of bigger concern is the lack of output the last two weeks, as McCoy has an unsightly 30 yards on 26 carries. We don't feel he's lost a step, but it's become apparent the Bills are having growing pains instituting a new run-blocking scheme.
McCoy was held to just 21 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's win over Denver, though he did have a decent outing in the passing game with seven catches for 48 yards.
True, it was the Denver defense, but McCoy had run up 12 straight home games with at least 90 yards from scrimmage. Couple this outing with the ugly 46 scrimmage yards McCoy put up last week, and owners are certainly starting to look for more from the top-five pick. He gets a tough match-up at Atlanta next week.
McCoy was listed with a (wrist) next to his name, but that's seemingly soreness stemming from a Week 1 ding, just like the minor groin issue that sidelined him for a practice next week. The Buffalo offense revolves around McCoy, plan and simple, and rest days are going to be part of his routine throughout the season.
