The Buffalo Bills are off to a solid 2-1 start this season, which has had very little to do with LeSean McCoy. Buffalo traded Kiko Alonso’s ACL tears to Philadelphia in exchange for McCoy during the offseason, which is a trade that hasn’t really amounted to much for either side as of yet. In three games with the Bills thus far, McCoy has tallied 43 carries for 146 yards (3.4 average), as well as 7 catches for 83 yards and a score. Quite pedestrian, indeed.
However, he has been hampered by a nagging hamstring issue that limited him to just 11 carries in Sunday’s win over the Miami Worst Team in the NFLs. Oh wait I meant the “Dolphins”. Buffalo isn’t sure if McCoy will be healthy enough to play this week against the Giants, and may give him time to rest the hamstring that has been bothering him since training camp. When asked if he’d be ready for New York, McCoy replied, “We’re going to find out.”
Karlos Williams took advantage of McCoy’s limited availability, hauling the ball 12 times for 110 yards and a TD. The rookie has looked quite spry this season, leading the NFL with an average of 7.8 yards per carry (minimum 20 carries). If McCoy is forced to miss this week’s clash, then Williams is almost a must-play for fantasy owners.
Stay tuned throughout the week for updates on McCoy’s status. OR ELSE.
