He's definitely slower than Westbrook, but he has good field vision and he sets his cuts and follows his blockers well, so it's not a big issue. He already leads the league in runs of 40+ yards (he has 4), so that big play ability isn't lacking.

Add me to the list of people who were low on McCoy going into the season. I thought he would be a low-end RB2 and I felt he was being drafted appropriately (~4th round).

I didn't picture him as a top-5 RB. He didn't impress me at all last year; he must have worked hard in the offseason. He'll definitely be drafted in the top 5 in ppr leagues next year.

I didn't think he'd have as Many TDs as he does. I thought he'd be looking at 6-8 total TDs this year.

I'll admit I was right about McCoy. Spent a 2nd rounder on him and turned down multiple trade offers throughout the season for him.

He went for $18 in our auction draft. The other guys who were projected 1st rounders went from $58-48. So that's like a 4th or 5th rounder.
