Fantasy Football PPR Comparison: Chris Johnson vs. LeSean McCoy
2010 statistics: 316 attempts, 1,364 yards, 11 touchdowns; 44 receptions, 245 yards, 1 touchdowns
Even with Hasselbeck coming in, they still haven't played a single snap together. However, Johnson probably won't be as controlled by defenses as he was last season due to more of the respect opposing defenses will have to give the passing game.
Johnson has the advantage on McCoy in the running game, getting 109 more carries, 284 more yards and four more touchdowns than the Eagles back. That is, however, only 4.3 yards per carry to McCoy's average of 5.2 yards. This is a testament to how relatively bottled up Johnson was over the course of last season.
It's up to Hasselbeck, receiver Kenny Britt and tight end Jared Cook to take the pressure off CJ2K in 2011. If they are able to do that, Johnson's numbers can return close to 2009 form.
2010 Statistics: 207 attempts, 1,080 yards, 7 touchdowns; 78 receptions, 592 yards, 2 touchdowns
Vick gives McCoy a lot more room to maneuver in the ground game as well, as was proven by McCoy's aforementioned 5.2 yards per carry last season. Granted, owners would like to see more than 207 attempts on the ground from McCoy, but he more than makes up for it in the passing game. McCoy led all running backs in targets in 2010 with 90. His 78 receptions also led the league.
He just has too much of an advantage in the passing game with Vick at the helm. If it was a standard scoring format, I would take Johnson. Additionally, McCoy has more talent surrounding him and more experience with his quarterback.
