Is anyone worried about McCoy and Marshawn this year?
McCoy handled the ball more than he ever had with 314 carries and 52 catches for 366 touches. Tack on an extra 21 carries plus 4 catches in his playoff game and McCoy totals 391 touches in 2013. In 2012 he had 259 touches in 12 games (no playoffs). In 2011 he had 321 touches in 15 games (no playoffs).
Forte was second in the league in touches with 363 (289 carries and 74 catches). No playoffs.
In contrast, Marshawn Lynch had 337 touches in the regular season and 66 in three playoff games for a total of 403. Gore had 292 touches plus three playoff games.
Lacy had 342 (including playoffs), Jamal Charles had 332 (including playoffs), Murray had 313, and Peterson had 298.
This alone would lead me to steer clear of Marshawn and Gore and to be tentative about taking McCoy.
I think if I had the first pick I would take Charles - in PPR format for sure, but also in standard formats. I'd stay away from Marshawn and Gore entirely.
What do ya'll think about this? Are you worried about Marshawn and McCoy getting injured or becoming ineffective? Forte?
