LeSean McCoy

Week 2 – RB – Sit or Start – BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Willis McGahee?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I have LeSean McCoy as my RB1 and my RB2 spot is between BenJarvus Green-Ellis (vs. CLE) or Willis McGahree (vs. ATL). Who should I start this week?

Answer:

I think you’ll see both backs put up solid numbers this week. BenJarvus Green-Ellis should pile up the yards against a soft Browns run defense. However, I would go with Willis McGahee. I’m expecting a shootout in the Falcons vs. Broncos game. That could lead to some more goalline opportunities for McGahee.…

Who To Draft: Chris Johnson or Darren McFadden? (2012)

Posted by in Who To Draft on August 26th, 2012 | 1 Comment

Darren McFadden vs. Chris JohsnonWho should I draft with the 9th pick, Darren McFadden or Chris Johnson?

After the top three runningbacks (Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, and Ray Rice) are off the board, many fantasy owners will be trying to decide between Chris Johnson or Darren McFadden as the next back off the board. Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Matthew Stafford are likely 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 off the board. Your 2012 fantasy football draft will really start to get exciting around the 9th pick and odds are that you’re trying to decide between Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden.

Each back has some concerns going into the 2012 season. Can Darren McFadden stay healthy? Will Chris Johnson rebound from a poor 2011 campaign? Last year was a disappointing season for Chris Johnson who held out throughout the offseason until he landed a huge contract. Johnson saw career lows in yards, touchdowns, and yards-per-carry. Darren McFadden, on the other hand, got off to a great start in 2011 and put up ridiculous numbers in his first four games of the season until going down with a sprained foot in week 7 which kept him out for the remainder of the season.

Let’s start off by comparing the stats.

Posted by in NFL Week 5 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 8th, 2010 | 1 Comment

Question: Looking for some week 5 fantasy start/sit advice.

I have two RB spots and a Flex to fill in a PPR league.  Here are my best options for this week.

Ray Rice vs. DEN
LeSean McCoy @SF
Cedric Benson vs. TB
Peyton Hillis vs. ATL

Both Rice and McCoy have been cleared to play this Sunday. Who should I start in my flex, Peyton Hillis or Cedric Benson? What does everyone think?

Best answer:

Great job at drafting a solid set of runningbacks. I would start Ray Rice and LeSean McCoy with Peyton Hillis in the Flex. Good Luck.
