BUF RB LeSean McCoy - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook
The good news is LeSean McCoy is still the starting running back for Buffalo and he also has a storied career in the league. So, there is hope he will bounce back from a rough 2018 season. McCoy did have back-to-back 1,000 yard rushing seasons for the Bills in 2016 and 2017 and he is healthy going into this season.
McCoy only ran the ball 161 times for 514 yards which is 3.2 yard per carry. This led to career lows for both yards and yards per carry. He only carried the ball 151 times his rookie season. This wasn’t all on McCoy as the Buffalo offense and especially the offensive line were horrible. The Bills also brought in veteran Frank Gore in case McCoy was part of the problem.
2019 Bottom Line
In the end, it’s hard to believe the Bills offense will improve dramatically although it can’t be much worse. Taking McCoy is a crapshoot. He could be on the downside of his career and won’t be a factor. Or he could bounce back. His fantasy standing has him as depth right now. He is being taken in the ninth or tenth round which might be high. There are better options out there.
