Yet another big night from the Philadelphia Eagles' LeSean McCoy, this time on Thursday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Even with the loss, Shady McCoy had an impressive stat line. He finished the game with 158 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, with the 41-yard score early in the fourth quarter capping off a great night for the star running back.

This has been an incredible start to the 2013 season for McCoy. He ran for 184 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, then put up 114 yards receiving and 53 yards rushing.  

At this point, based off of what we've seen from Adrian Peterson so far, McCoy might just be the top projected running back for the remainder of the 2013 season. The new offense with Chip Kelly is helping open up the middle of the field, and the up-tempo pace is letting the Eagles run plenty of plays on offense.

At this rate, we could see McCoy eclipse the 2,000-yard rushing mark, but more importantly for fantasy owners, he could be the top fantasy player overall in 2013.
