Stud production last season, and going in to his second season in the offense bodes well, as does having back his O-line. Before free agency he was my number 1 RB.
With that said my only concern is with the acquisition of Darren Sproles. Does it end up taking away some of that receiving game McCoy had last season? I can't imagine the eagles traded and then extended Sproles contract for him to just be a backup and only to give McCoy a breather. I know Shady is still the guy there, but I'm just wondering if some of his upside gets capped because of that.
My thoughts are that you don't want your franchise back touching the ball 366 times a year.
I did drop him to #3 on my list, but I think he'll be fine, and potentially more productive on a per touch basis, with fewer touches overall.
Keep in mind that Bryce Brown last year touched the ball 88 times and in past years Sproles has only really needed around 150 total touches to be rather productive in the NO offense.
