The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off one of the most disappointing losses of Week 6 against the Detroit Lions as they let a 10-point lead slip away in the final four minutes of the game before losing in overtime thanks to a 45-yard field goal by Jason Hanson. With the loss, the Eagles head into the bye week with a 3-3 record and one of the most frustrating parts about Week 6–the lack of carries for running back LeSean McCoy.
Despite catching seven passes for 26 yards and one touchdown through the air, fantasy football owners are feeling the frustration over McCoy as he was limited to just 14 carries for 22 yards against the Lions on Sunday–which is unacceptable for a starting running back as effective as McCoy. Even if he did struggle to produce early on, Andy Reid should have considered using McCoy more on the ground to get more production out of him–especially since history proves he gives them their best shot of winning.
Since 2009, the Eagles are 10-1 when McCoy receives 20+ touches in a game–which should be in the mindset of Reid when he enters each game. In all three of Philadelphia’s losses this season, McCoy has received less than 20 carries and the argument can be made the Eagles could have won all three games.
McCoy is just one of numerous players to be frustrated about from Week 6 and we want to hear about which player failed to come through on your end. Reach out to us on Twitter with your story and with the #RML to share your fantasy football frustrations from this past weekend.
