Eagles RB LeSean McCoy expects big game week 16

ESPN.com's Phil Sheridan has reported that Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 wants the ball in week 16. "I feel like this game, I've got to put the offense on my back," McCoy said Wednesday. "I want to roll. I feel like myself and the big guys up front -- we've got to put this game on our back and take care of business and get a win."

McCoy reiterated his desire to shoulder the load, while still maintaining his confidence in head coach Chip Kelly's play calling, despite only getting eight carries in the team's week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. "He's an offensive genius," McCoy stated. "I don't have to tell him I want the ball, I need the ball. He knows the right plays to run. I don't know that stuff. He knows exactly when to run it, when to throw it, when to get his playmakers the ball."

Fantasy Analysis:

Coach who knows he abandoned the run too soon last week - check! Coach who knows his running back is a stud - check! Must-win game - check! Prime time game - check! League's worst run defense as opponent - check! Attention Shady McCoy owners... Lick. Your. Chops!!! If you survived the eight carry effort last week and are still playing in your league playoffs, the stars are aligned for McCoy to pay huge dividends for you this weekend.

The Bears give up over 150 yards/game on the ground, and have allowed 17 rushing touchdowns on the year. Only the Redskins (21) and the Titans (20) have allowed more. While fantasy football isn't the most predictable thing on Earth, the odds are definitely in favor of McCoy completely going off this week!! If you own him, enjoy!!
