LeSean McCoy Injury Would Be Catastrophic

Eagles fans better hope he stays that strong
Two-headed running back systems have been a cauldron of frustration for fantasy owners.

If you see a football fan fling the Doritos bowl across the room, while unleashing a stream of obscenities over a game not involving his favorite team, chances are that the “wrong guy” (the “other” running back) scored a touchdown.

After all, in the first round, they drafted the speedy, elusive, graceful halfback who picked up 43 yards for them on that particular drive, including a 20-yard burst to the opponent’s four.

That’s when the resourceful coach sent the backup running back into the huddle, the 245-pounder with calves like tree stumps.

You can guess what happens next: that running back plows into the end zone like a bulldozer, earning six points for both his football team, and the guy in Dorito Man’s league who drafted him.

No wonder Dorito Man is angry. Those six points should have been HIS!

It’s a dilemma for anyone that drafts Carolina’s DeAngelo Williams or Jonathan Stewart, who split everything like treasure hunters, same as in Houston with Arian Foster and Ben Tate. This season, the twin-power theory will affect Tampa Bay (LeGarrette Blount and Doug Martin) and San Francisco (Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, Brandon Jacobs and LaMichael James).
