LeSean McCoy isn’t done yet! After finish the 2019 season with the Chiefs, I figured shady would call it a career after going out on top with a ring. That doesn’t appear to be the case and has signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This news has huge implications for fantasy and the NFL this year.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network was the first to report the news:

Rap Sheet also added that Philadelphia had conversations with McCoy about a return to the Eagles but Tampa Bay ultimately landed him. Philadelphia has Boston Scott but the remaining depth is a bit of a question. Elijah Holyfield, Corey Clement, and Michael Warren will battle for roster spots.

For fantasy, this is big news. Not too long ago, it was reported that Ronald Jones would enter the season as the starter. The Bucs also drafted Ke’Shawn Vaughn in the third round this year. It also seemed likely Dare Ogunbowale will be kept as a pass catcher. So where does Shady McCoy factor in? Things got really complicated. Maybe it’s something Tom Brady pushed for wanting a veteran in the room. For fantasy, this backfield already felt murky. Now it’s at the point where you may be better avoiding it altogether.

The only thing we do know is Devonta Freeman remains the biggest loser of all-time. This guy begged the Bucs to sign him and Tampa went with washed up LeSean McCoy instead. I tried to tell you, rock bottom is only reserved for Freeman. McCoy somehow averaged 4.6 yards per carry but maybe part of that was Kansas City.
