Bills RB LeSean McCoy battling hamstring injury

Monday, December 10, 2018, 2:33pm

Ian Rapoport on Twitter - [Full Article]

Bills RB LeSean McCoy is day-to-day with a hamstring strain, source said following his MRI.

Related players: Marcus Murphy, Chris Ivory

Fantasy Impact:

His availability will be watched closely throughout the week, Rapoport went on to say in the tweet. Ivory would likely get a bulk of the work with Murphy also mixing in like this past week after McCoy went down. QB Josh Allen actually rushed for over 100 yards and a TD on nine attempts. The Bills host Detroit in an early Sunday game in Week 15.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Marcus Murphy enters his third NFL season and will compete for a backup role with the Bills. A LeSean McCoy suspension could open up a spot for Murphy.

Fantasy Downside

Murphy has only played in four games over the past two seasons and is clinging to his NFL career. Even if he makes the roster, he will primarily be a special teams contributor.

2018 Bottom Line

Murphy is our No. 87 ranked running back which, so unless Buffalo's backs start dropping like flies, he won't have any fantasy impact.
