The Eagles could be inching closer to a dreaded running back by committee situation. Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said that LeSean McCoy might not split time with Brian Westbrook, rather he might share time with Westbrook.
The Eagles could have McCoy and Westbrook in the same backfield, which could cause some interesting problems for fantasy owners. Westbrook is a guy you should always play, unless his touches drop significantly. But you could make a case for starting McCoy on your fantasy teams, too. Especially this week as the Eagles take on the Buccaneers.
Giants No. 2 back Ahmad Bradshaw had some good numbers against the Buccaneers, rushing for 104 yards in Week 3. McCoy could post similar numbers. And it is only a matter of time before McCoy completely becomes a part of the Eagles offensive attack. So consider McCoy a good start for flex spots, especially if you have players like Bears RB Matt Forte or Saints RB Pierre Thomas on a bye this week.
