LeSean McCoy rushed 26 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns and caught his lone target for five yards in the Bills' Week 10 win over the Jets.
The Bills embarrassed the Jets 41-10 in a game that will likely seal Todd Bowles' fate in New York. A colossal Weeks 1-9 fantasy bust, McCoy roared on Sunday against a Jets run defense that has fallen apart since a strong start. Matt Barkley gave Buffalo its most competent quarterback play all season, although the Bills will likely turn back to top-ten pick Josh Allen after their Week 11 bye. McCoy will remain a volatile RB2 option down the stretch. Nov 11 - 4:16 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed ten times for ten yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Bills' Week 9 loss to Chicago.

McCoy has 23 yards on 22 carries over the past two weeks, and it's through no fault of his own. The Bills' offense can't move the ball, and the offensive line isn't opening any holes. Chris Ivory did exit Sunday's loss with a shoulder injury, potentially raising McCoy's workload projection ahead of a Week 10 date with the Jets. McCoy will remain a low-floor RB2/flex in that game.
Nov 4 - 6:06 PM

Bills GM Brandon Beane expects LeSean McCoy to "definitely" be in the team's plans for next season.

"LeSean is still a very good player," Beane told the Buffalo News. "We like what he brings, to the point we'll have him back in 2019." McCoy (3.4 YPC) has looked washed behind a bad offensive line this year, setting career lows through seven weeks. The Bills fielded McCoy offers at the deadline but ultimately didn't trade him. McCoy is going to be a walk year 31-year-old back owed $9 million in 2019 with declined production and questionable off-field baggage. Buffalo can save $6.4 million if they move on from McCoy this offseason.
Nov 3 - 12:12 PM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports LeSean McCoy is not expected to be traded ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

Darlington reports "several teams reached out," but the Bills did not really pursue the matter. The Bills seem to be in the same sort of situation the Browns were with Joe Thomas in 2017. Trading McCoy makes sense on paper but how much worse can they make the team as they try to develop a rookie quarterback? McCoy was also not going to fetch more than a late-round pick. It's not surprising he's staying in Buffalo.
Oct 30 - 2:01 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 12 times for 13 yards and caught 6-of-8 targets for 82 yards in the Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

McCoy gained 12 yards on one run, so the other 12 gained a total of one. He saved his fantasy week by leading the Bills in both catches and yards while tying Zay Jones for the team-high in targets. It's been a real struggle for McCoy as a runner in an offense that has zero threat at quarterback and routinely gets blown out on the scoreboard. A Tuesday trade would be best for McCoy. If he stays in Buffalo, a date with the Bears looms next. He'd be an RB3 in that spot.
Oct 30 - 12:25 AM

LeSean McCoy (concussion) is active for Week 8 against the Patriots.

He cleared the concussion protocol over the weekend. Inactive for Buffalo are QB Josh Allen, RB Taiwan Jones, CB Dontae Johnson, OG Ike Boettger, OT Conor McDermott, OG Wyatt Teller, and DE Trent Murphy.
Oct 29 - 6:55 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LeSean McCoy has cleared the concussion protocol.

This was always the expectation after he was able to practice on Thursday. The Bills have scored 31 points total the last four games, so McCoy does not carry much fantasy upside, but he should be the focal point of the offense in a pretty good spot. That keeps him in the RB2 conversation.
Oct 28 - 4:02 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills are unlikely to trade LeSean McCoy before Tuesday's deadline.

Buffalo has "spoken to at least three teams," but there hasn't been anyone willing to meet their asking price. McCoy (3.9 YPC) has struggled while playing through injuries this year and still has a looming off-field situation, so it's hard to see the Bills getting enough in return to trade him. Buffalo may be better suited to wait until the offseason if they want to move McCoy, who's signed through 2019.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports LeSean McCoy (questionable, concussion) is expected to play in Week 8 against the Patriots.

McCoy has yet to officially clear the concussion protocol, though it sounds like that will happen sometime in the next 24 hours. He was a limited participant at all three practices this week. Playing in one of the league's worst offenses, McCoy hasn't moved the needle much this year, averaging a lethargic 54.8 yards from scrimmage with no touchdowns over his first six outings. Chris Ivory won't be a fantasy option with Shady on track to suit up Monday against New England. Daily Slant: If McCoy ultimately is unable to clear concussion protocol in time for the Bills' Monday night matchup with New England, Chris Ivory would be a lock on any DFS slates involving the Monday night game, as he would assume a heavy workload in both the run and pass game. For now keep an eye on McCoy's Sunday status to get a better feel for his potential Monday availability.
Oct 28 - 8:34 AM

LeSean McCoy (concussion) is questionable for Week 8 against the Patriots.

McCoy was limited in practice all week. He remains in the concussion protocol but is on track to suit up. The Bills play on Monday night, so McCoy may not get cleared until Sunday. With gamescript likely working against him, McCoy is just a Week 8 FLEX.
Oct 27 - 3:10 PM

LeSean McCoy (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol.

When asked about McCoy's status for Monday, coach Sean McDermott responded "we'll see" and "we'll just take it one day at a time right now." Players are ordinarily cleared on Saturday to play Sunday, so McCoy is at least allotted the extra 24 hours before a decision has to be made. He's a true question mark at this time. Chris Ivory (hamstring) is on track to play.
Oct 27 - 10:50 AM

LeSean McCoy (concussion) has yet to clear the league's protocol.

McCoy got in a second straight practice Friday but has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol. He's still on track to play (and get cleared) assuming another limited session on Saturday. Although he'll likely be thrown into a negative game script against the Patriots, McCoy's floor would be safer (making him a more confident option) if Chris Ivory (limited, hamstring) were unexpectedly ruled out. Stay tuned.
Oct 26 - 2:28 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said LeSean McCoy will practice Thursday but remains in the concussion protocol.

While he remains in the protocol, a practice this early in the week great sign for McCoy's availability on Monday night. Barring any setbacks, he should be cleared ahead of Monday night's game against the Patriots.
Oct 25 - 11:39 AM

LeSean McCoy (head) will not return to Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts.

McCoy injured his head early in the first quarter after taking a hit from Colts CB Kenny Moore. It looked like he may have also injured his right leg/ankle on the play. He'll finish his day with just one yard on two carries. With Shady ruled out, ball-carrier responsibilities will now fall with Chris Ivory.
Oct 21 - 1:58 PM

LeSean McCoy left Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts and is being evaluated for a head injury.

It's surprising that the Bills are checking him for a concussion as McCoy appeared to injure his right leg/ankle after being tackled out of bounds by Kenny Moore on Buffalo's opening drive. McCoy went to the locker room, where he'll presumably go through concussion testing. Chris Ivory will fill in at running back for Buffalo.
