Lesean McCoy Fantasy Projection Week 12

LeSean McCoy is currently leading the NFL in rushing with 1,019 yards and in total TDs with 12 so he's obviously a must start every week. Even last week, when he was shut down for most of the game, he broke off a 60 yarder at the end and went over 100 yards for the day. So he's about as reliable as it gets, a fact that the Patriots understand.

Today he faces a Patriots team with a decent rush defense. They're right in the middle of the league at 16th in terms of fantasy points give up to running backs. They're 12th in rush defense overall. With Vince Young making his second straight start, it's likely that the Eagles will lean on McCoy to power their offense. Here's the projections for McCoy today from NumberFire.
