LeSean McCoy (thumb, toe) continues to practice.
If there were any concerns at all over McCoy's sore toe or thumb, the Eagles would certainly hold him out of practice. He remains our pick at No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts despite the extremely minor nicks. "I'll be fine for the opener," McCoy said. "Catch with two hands, one hand, spiking the ball, doing everything we need to do." Aug 25 - 8:42 AM

LeSean McCoy's (thumb) X-rays came back negative, and the injury is not considered serious.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane, Shady has avoided any fractures or torn ligaments. It's a best-case scenario after McCoy was forced from Thursday's regular-season dress rehearsal after racking up 50 yards and a score on only six touches. McCoy will be ready to rock for Week 1. Draft him as you normally would.

LeSean McCoy was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers with a right thumb injury.

Shady headed to the locker room for X-rays midway through the first quarter. His return is "unknown," but he obviously won't be checking back in. Nursing a toe injury coming into the game, McCoy was his normal explosive self, rushing four times for 24 yards while snagging two passes for 26 yards and a score. His status should be updated later Thursday evening.

Coach Chip Kelly downplayed LeSean McCoy's "small version" of turf toe Tuesday.

McCoy practiced in full Monday, a surefire sign that this ailment is nothing to worry about. If the Eagles' medical staff had any concern at all, they would have held him out as the regular season opener is more than two weeks away. "He's fine," Kelly said. "It's not as big of an issue as I think anybody has made it out to be. ... There’s a lot of questions about a toe in August that I think is way overblown." Owners looking for protection can snag Chris Polk, although he has to get over his nagging hamstring injury soon to secure the backup job.

LeSean McCoy is practicing through a "small version of turf toe."

Whatever that means. "(Sunday) it was really, really hurting pretty bad," McCoy said Monday. "It felt a little better (Monday), so I went for it." X-rays and an MRI came back negative, so there's no real reason to worry, though it's possible McCoy will sit out this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal as a precaution. It's something for fantasy owners to be aware of, but not fret over.

According to ESPN Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan, LeSean McCoy looks "better than ever."

Now in his true prime at 26 years old, McCoy is playing with a top-3 offensive line and in a run-first scheme. He's dropped a few pounds off his '13 playing weight, reportedly gaining even more quickness and agility. "McCoy seems better at getting out into pass routes and catching the ball. He teases defenders who try to cover him," Sheridan said. McCoy is our No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.

LeSean McCoy hopes to rush for 2,000 yards this season.

"This is THE YEAR!!!!," McCoy tweeted. "My potential is #2000yards. Will I reach it? Stepping up my training and signs point to yes." 2,000 yards is the target for any star back, but McCoy arguably has the best shot of any player in the league this season. He's Rotoworld's No. 1 overall player.

LeSean McCoy reported to camp 5-7 pounds lighter.

McCoy revealed he did so by cutting out junk food, specifically late-night Doritos. Shady said he feels "much more explosive," and "wanted to do it for (Chip Kelly's) offense." Standing in at 5-foot-11, McCoy still tips the scales at over 200 pounds. He's fantasy's No. 1 overall player this season.
Jul 31 - 3:00 PM

Eagles running backs are racking up an "absurd" number of receptions early in camp.

Last year, Darren Sproles was fourth among running backs with 71 catches and LeSean McCoy was 12th with 52. Both backs dominate one-on-one matchups with linebackers, so it's a no-brainer for Chip Kelly to scheme to them. McCoy's three-down plus goal-line role along with his pass-game chops in a dynamic offense make him our No. 1 overall fantasy player.

Philly Mag's Sheil Kapadia does not expect the Eagles to lighten LeSean McCoy's workload.

Last year, McCoy led the league in carries (314), touches (366) and was second among running backs in snaps. He was more than capable of handling it, showing no signs of wearing down and rarely taking big hits. McCoy just turned 26 years old last week and remains the obvious focal point of Chip Kelly's run-first scheme. He's our pick at No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports the Eagles want to "move even faster in 2014."

Breer says it's something he heard "consistently" observing Eagles practice. Breer's report comes two weeks after the Allentown Morning Call compared Eagles practices to a "drag race." The Eagles finished 13th in plays from scrimmage last season, but that number should shoot up in coach Chip Kelly's sophomore campaign. That can only mean good things for fantasy players.
Jun 9 - 2:01 PM

LeSean McCoy went over 130 rushing yards four times in Nick Foles' final seven games of last season.

McCoy initially suffered a dip in production when Michael Vick got hurt, as defenses were able to crash on the zone-read play Chip Kelly loves. But the Eagles adjusted by adding wrinkles, and McCoy proved even more explosive despite Foles' lack of Vick-like mobility. Shady is currently our No. 1 overall fantasy player.
Jun 5 - 10:01 AM

According to the Allentown Morning Call, the Eagles' goal is "definitely to move a lot faster this year" on offense.

Per beat writer Nick Fierro, the offense is "moving so much faster between plays" at OTAs, and "the Eagles are making significant strides in that area." Adds Fierro, "it was like a drag race out there." As a rookie coach, Chip Kelly expressed some disappointment with his offense's tempo as it finished 13th in the NFL in plays from scrimmage. More plays equal more touches, equal more box-score stats. The increased emphasis on speed is good news for Philly fantasy players.
May 29 - 11:36 PM

LeSean McCoy said he expects to get fewer touches this season with the addition of Darren Sproles.

"I think 366 touches is a lot," McCoy said. "Being in the prime of my career and bringing in a guy like Sproles who can do so much, we'll work well together." McCoy led the NFL with 314 carries in his first season under Chip Kelly. The addition of Sproles is going to cut more into McCoy's receiving game usage and third-down snaps than his rushing workload. Sproles had just 53 carries in 2013, but was fourth among running backs with 71 receptions.
Apr 25 - 4:30 PM

Beat writer Sheil Kapadia says it's "unlikely" LeSean McCoy "sees a significant decrease" in usage next season despite the acquisition of Darren Sproles.

Yes, the Eagles want to ensure they don't overwork McCoy, who played the second-most snaps of any running back in the league last year and piled up 366 touches. But we're talking about one of the game's most valuable players, one that draws fair comparisons to Barry Sanders for his raw running ability. McCoy is going to get his 18-20 carries per game plus all the goal-line work, leaving him right there with Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles atop the fantasy running back rankings. Just knock his reception projection (52 last season) down a peg.
