ABC Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia considers LeSean McCoy a dark horse to lead the Bills in receptions this season.
Buscaglia considers Sammy Watkins the favorite to pace the Bills in catches, but points out new OC Rick Dennison's history of targeting running backs in the passing game. McCoy is a smooth pass catcher, and has a 78-catch season on his résumé. He's averaged a healthy 48 receptions through eight NFL seasons. McCoy's role is as mouthwatering as ever for his age-29 campaign. Aug 7 - 3:05 PM

Coach Sean McDermott said the Bills will "manage" LeSean McCoy's reps during training camp and into the season.

The Bills are trying to keep their 29-year-old back fresh. With the post-Mike Gillislee depth chart behind McCoy painfully thin and no guaranteed money left on his contract, the Bills need to take every step possible toward keeping McCoy away from the trainer's table.

LeSean McCoy said he expects to play until his age-33 season.

McCoy, 29, is currently signed through 2019. He has less wear than most backs his age given his shifty playing style, though McCoy has missed five games the last two years to injuries. Even if McCoy's body doesn't hold up, his receiving skills give him a good chance to have a role into his mid-30s.

The Bills' official website expects only "subtle changes" to the team's running scheme under new OC Rick Dennison.

Dennison is a zone disciple of Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak, but the Bills were employing plenty of zone runs under ex-OCs Anthony Lynn and Greg Roman. Dennison has insisted he plans to "carry over' many of the successful principles from the Bills' dominant rushing attacks of the past two seasons. For his part, LeSean McCoy expects to catch more passes. Even with Shady headed into his age-29 season, he remains a high-end RB1 bet.

LeSean McCoy is excited about his potential role in the passing game under new OC Rick Dennison.

"That’s something I’ve been a part of, but it’s been a while since I’ve actually got the ball a lot in the air," McCoy said. "(Dennison is) big on that, you look at all the successful running backs that’s been in his offense, from Arian Foster who I’m a big fan of, he did it on the ground and in the air." McCoy caught 78 passes as a sophomore with the Eagles, but he has not topped 55 in a season since. While 78 is likely out of the question in what should be a run-heavy attack, McCoy is a good bet to top the 50/356/1 receiving line he put up last year, especially considering the Bills' thin depth chart at receiver. McCoy is a high-end RB1.

LeSean McCoy was pictured working out with his teammates this week.

McCoy made a bit of noise by skipping the first week of voluntary workouts, but the Bills never seemed concerned about the absence. McCoy should remain the focal point of the offense moving forward.

Profootballtalk reports LeSean McCoy's absence from voluntary OTAs is not contract-related.

McCoy is a 28-year-old, highly-paid running back coming off a monster season who didn't want to show up for pad-less practices during his offseason. Many others will make similar choices in the coming weeks.
Apr 4 - 1:24 PM

LeSean McCoy is skipping the Bills' voluntary workouts this week.

McCoy is the lone absentee for new coach Sean McDermott. "It’s voluntary," McDermott said when asked about the absence. "I am encouraged by my conversations with LeSean throughout the whole offseason since I got the job." The reason for McCoy skipping is not clear, but the coach does not seem concerned. Pro Football Talk reports McCoy's absence is not contract related.
Apr 4 - 10:30 AM

Speaking on PFT Live, agent Drew Rosenhaus said he is "flabbergasted" by rumors the Bills plan to trade or release LeSean McCoy.

McCoy's big cap number ($8.875 million) has sparked speculation the new coaching staff might look for a cheaper option, and Shady, perhaps unintentionally, put fuel to the fire by tweeting, "Buffalo was so special ... thanks for everything," on Sunday. McCoy appears to have been tweeting about an appearance at an autograph signing, however, and Rosenhaus said he believes McCoy will play for the Bills for "many years to come." It makes little sense for a team with few offensive weapons and who might be without a quarterback in the near future to move on from a player of McCoy's caliber.

LeSean McCoy suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Jets.

McCoy was carted off in the second quarter but returned to the sideline after undergoing X-rays. He was hoping to return but the Bills obviously did the right thing by keeping him out. McCoy finished with five carries for 10 yards, giving him 1,267 rushing yards for the season. McCoy will be ready in plenty of time for the start of OTAs and should be treated as a top-five back in all fantasy formats heading into next season.
Jan 1 - 4:29 PM

Updating an earlier report, LeSean McCoy has been upgraded to a "possible return" after being carted off with an ankle injury early in Sunday's Week 17 game against the Jets.

McCoy had been ruled out after exiting in the second quarter but returned to the sideline after undergoing X-rays. It's unclear why McCoy is pushing to return in a game that means nothing, but fantasy owners certainly appreciate his efforts. Mike Gillislee led the Bills with nine first-half carries.

LeSean McCoy was carted off with an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 17 game against the Jets and will not return.

That will end his season. The Bills ran the ball better than any team in football this year and McCoy was the biggest reason why. Shady was a beast whenever he was healthy and rushed for 100 yards or more in four of his last six outings. He was also a reliable pass-catcher, reeling in 50 receptions for 356 yards over 15 appearances. McCoy turns 29 in July but doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. He checks off all the boxes for an elite running back and should be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues next summer.

LeSean McCoy (illness) returned to practice Thursday.

McCoy was sent home Wednesday after showing up sick, but he was back on the practice field Thursday. McCoy should be good to go for the season finale.

LeSean McCoy (illness) did not practice Wednesday.

McCoy was sent home after showing up sick. It gives the Bills a reason not to play McCoy in a meaningless Week 17 game. If McCoy is unable to play, Mike Gillislee would be an attractive play against the Jets.

LeSean McCoy rushed 24 times for 128 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Dolphins, adding five receptions for 17 additional yards.

McCoy got off to a slow start, but still ended up blowing by 130 yards from scrimmage for the fourth time in five games. Averaging 5.48 yards per carry heading into Week 17, McCoy has been one of the best players in the NFL this season. Provided the Bills don't lay down on possible lame duck Rex Ryan, McCoy could have a total blow up against the packed-in Jets.
