Eagles writer Dave Spadaro: If I had to say one player who stood out, it would be running back DeMarco Murray. He is much more fluid as a pass catcher than I thought, and he's in tremendous shape and just looks like he "fits" into this offensive structure perfectly. The backfield is a must-see group with all of that talent.
Murray had a career year in his fourth season, racking up 2,261 total yards and 13 touchdowns on 449 touches. He should get plenty of work in Philadelphia, though the signing of Ryan Mathews and the presence of Darren Sproles make it very unlikely that he’ll approach 450 touches in 2015. LeSean McCoy averaged 353 touches over the past two seasons, so that’s probably Murray’s ceiling if everyone stays healthy. He’ll hold low-end RB1 value, though the presence of Mathews and Sproles may make even that a stretch. Chip Kelly did not utilize McCoy much as a receiver last season.

Week 17 - McCoy vs. NY Giants
LeSean McCoy ran 22 times for 88 yards last week and added a TD, just his fifth of the season. He caught three balls for 28 yards. The 28 yards are his highest receiving total since Week 1 as the team went back to using RBs in the passing game a little more.
McCoy was certainly effective in this contest, and now gets another good matchup against the Giants who are in the middle of the pack in terms of allowing fantasy points to RBs. The Eagles say they will play the starters in what is now a meaningless game, but there's certainly a chance McCoy loses some more work than usual in this contest. He should still make for a solid play.
