Eagles Beat: Offensive line to blame for LeSean McCoy's struggles

ESPN - [Full Article]

Eagles beat writer Phil Sheridan says that instability of the team's offensive line is to blame for LeSean McCoy's struggles: The unit that started the same five guys in all 17 games in 2013 will start the same five guys twice in a row for the first time this season Sunday night. And that five will not include starting center Jason Kelce and left guard Evan Mathis, who will be out for another month or so. With the line in flux, LeSean McCoy has looked totally ordinary and Foles has not resembled his 2013 self.

Fantasy Impact: 

The good news is that the unit should get healthier as the season wears on, which makes McCoy an attractive "buy low" candidate if the price is right. He does have two matchups with a leaky Cowboys defense in Week 13 and Week 15. On the flip side, he also faces the Seahawks in Week 14.
