LeSean McCoy: Week 9 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 28, 2013

McCoy should see an extremely heavy workload at Oakland on Sunday, as the Eagles will start third-string quarterback Matt Barkley against the Raiders. Oakland has been stingy against the run, though, allowing just 89.9 yards per game.
Coach Chip Kelly will have no choice but to feed McCoy in this contest, as Barkley has shown little grasp of the complex offense and has been turnover-prone as well. The Raiders are sixth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per tilt, but McCoy has succeeded against stiffer defenses. Still, he should see plenty of eight-man fronts as the Raiders dare the Eagles to beat them with the pass.
