LeSean McCoy had 19 carries for 63 yards and caught six passes for 26 yards in Week 5 against the Bengals.
It was another high volume, low output game from McCoy. He was targeted nine times and continued to see a heavy workload, but didn't have any splash plays. McCoy was also held out of the end-zone for the fifth straight week. There hasn't been much dropoff from McCoy on film this year, but he's only averaging 3.2 YPC. With Buffalo on their bye this week, McCoy is a buy-low candidate. Oct 8 - 4:44 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 20 times for 76 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in Buffalo's Week 4 win over the Falcons.

McCoy continued to struggle in the run game, but the Bills were able to ride him to an upset after Atlanta lost Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu to injuries. He's now averaging 3.1 YPC despite heavy workloads, though McCoy hasn't shown any dropoff from his 2016 form. McCoy has yet to score a touchdown this season and is on pace for just 864 rushing yards through four weeks.
Oct 1 - 4:34 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 14 times for 21 yards and caught seven passes for 48 yards in Week 3 against the Broncos.

It was another bad rushing game from McCoy, but he managed to salvage his day with 69 total yards. The Bills limited his workload despite a run-heavy gamescript, giving Mike Tolbert 11 carries. McCoy is the latest running back the Broncos have shut down after holding Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott in check. McCoy has a rebound matchup with the Falcons in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:34 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 12 times for nine yards in the Bills' Week 2 loss to the Panthers, adding six receptions for 34 yards.

The Panthers defense simply torpedoed the Bills' offense. There were no rushing lanes. Losing LT Cordy Glenn to an ankle injury didn't help, while McCoy appeared to tweak his troublesome wrist in the second half. He said neither the wrist nor last week's groin soreness were why he was eliminated. It's a reminder of the risks McCoy faces on a bad team, even as a workhorse. Similar problems could be on tap for Week 3, as Tyrod Taylor will have nowhere to hide against the Broncos.

LeSean McCoy (wrist, groin) was taken off the Bills' final injury report for Week 2 against the Panthers.

He didn't practice on Friday but the Bills were just giving him a breather. McCoy was essentially Buffalo's whole offense in Week 1 and that should be the case again in Week 2. He's getting the type of volume fantasy owners dream about, though it's fair to question how McCoy's body will hold up if the Bills keep running him ragged.
Sep 15 - 2:34 PM

LeSean McCoy (rest, groin) did not practice Friday.

Coach Sean McDermott said it was going to be a rest day for McCoy anyway, but he does have some "general soreness" in his groin. It's not going to keep McCoy out against the Panthers, but he's already come down with groin and wrist issues after one game. It's going to take a lot for McCoy to play all 16 games this season with the way Buffalo plans to ride him on offense.
Sep 15 - 10:16 AM

LeSean McCoy (wrist) is practicing in full for Week 2.

McCoy's wrist "went numb" in Sunday's opener, but he's apparently all systems go for a difficult road matchup with the Panthers. Even with tough opponents, McCoy's monster weekly workloads keep him locked in as an elite RB1.
Sep 14 - 6:00 PM

Bills OC Rick Dennison indicated he has no plans to back off LeSean McCoy's workload in an effort to keep McCoy healthy.

"If I give him the ball 50 times, he'll make 50 plays," said Dennison, who also admitted he "wasn't counting" as McCoy peeled off 27 touches in Sunday's win over the Jets. It's not particularly surprising with the Bills not committed to winning games in 2017, but it is great news for McCoy's short-term fantasy outlook. Whether he'll hold up on these kinds of workloads is another story.
Sep 11 - 4:02 PM

LeSean McCoy rushed 22 times for 110 yards and caught 5-of-6 passes for 49 yards in Buffalo's Week 1 win over the Jets.

McCoy was heavily featured in a run-dominated gamescript. He had 94 total yards in the first half and helped ice the Jets late. McCoy had a touchdown vultured after briefly leaving with a wrist injury in the fourth quarter, but returned the next series. His wrist reportedly "went numb." It's possible McCoy could miss some practice time, but he should be fine for a Week 2 matchup with the Panthers.
Sep 10 - 4:47 PM

LeSean McCoy is not listed on the Bills' final Week 1 injury report.

McCoy was "limited" on Thursday due to an illness, but he returned to a full practice on Friday. He should easily surpass 20 touches Sunday versus the Jets.
Sep 8 - 3:08 PM

The Bills have added $2.5 million in incentives to LeSean McCoy's contract.

The Bills have made it clear they're going to give 29-year-old McCoy all the work he can handle this season, and now he has more incentive to handle it. McCoy's 2017 base salary is $6 million. It's similar to the Band Aid the Panthers recently applied to Greg Olsen's contract. McCoy will be a weekly top-five fantasy back in 2017.
Sep 7 - 7:40 PM

Updating a previous item, LeSean McCoy (illness) got in limited work during Thursday's practice.

McCoy was originally reported to have missed practice, but he returned after sitting out a team session. The missed time means the Bills have to list him as limited, but his illness does not appear to be serious at all. He will be a high-end RB1 against the Jets.

LeSean McCoy is not practicing Thursday because of an illness.

He is reportedly dealing with a stomach bug. While it would obviously be better if McCoy was not sick, it seems unlikely this affects his availability for Sunday's opener against the Jets. McCoy will be a high-end RB1 in that matchup.
Sep 7 - 11:38 AM

Asked about LeSean McCoy's workload, coach Sean McDermott said the offense will feed McCoy "whatever it takes to win."

"If he has to play every snap, and he feels good, that's what we'll do," McDermott continued. Ace beat writer Joe Buscaglia came away from Wednesday morning's presser convinced McCoy "will get a big workload" against the Jets in Week 1. It further confirms the belief that the Bills will run McCoy as hard as they possibly can in his age-29 season. He's a high-end RB1 with big volume upside.
Sep 6 - 9:50 AM

LeSean McCoy rushed six times for seven yards in the Bills' third preseason game.

Shady "added" two receptions for -2 yards on three targets. Brutal numbers, but hardly McCoy's fault. The Bills' passing game was in disarray, both during Tyrod Taylor's (concussion) lone drive and after his departure. McCoy's summer ends with 10 carries for 28 yards and three catches. There are legitimate concerns on a team that doesn't appear to be playing for 2017, but McCoy remains a no-brainer top-five back.
