I'm thinking of taking him at the 5/6 turn.  Too rich?  Lot of uncertainty but think about the upside in this offense.  No more 8 man fronts, etc.  And he's only got to compete really with Damian Williams, a guy who has like 5 good games on his resume, and only got a shot because Hunt and Ware went down.

He is saying this because he has him on his roster, nothing more. There is no source for this claim. 

My expectation, not from any source, would be that McCoy would get most of the early down work (maybe 2/3) and goal-line work, whereas DWilliams would get a small amount of early down work and most of the passing downs work (like 2/3 as well).  That's just pulled out of my a** but that's my expectation. 😀

Anyone thinking McCoy will get 75% of the carries from week 1 is insane. 

 

He just joined the team. It will be at least 2-3 weeks before he knows everything on offense. I think they ease him in anyways

 

Will be eased in, but just say it with me; 3mil guaranteed.

Don't forget he's familiar with Reid's systems. The learning curve should be fairly flat.

Yes exactly. he knows the system, won’t be long till he’s up to full speed.

i think he will be the primary with Williams taking 3rd down and hurry ups.

i can see a 60/40 split

McCoy has a history with Andy Reid. Look at the contract he got, I don't know of any backup RBs making 4 mill a year when most teams dont want to pay RBs anything.

Williams is no doubt a talented back but is not a workhorse.

I would expect a 60/40 split for McCoy.

I think this is being blown out of proportion.  The season starts in less than a week.  IMO, the Chiefs aren't paying him $4m as a testament to his projected usage, but rather for their familiarity with him, his institutional knowledge, and their need for RB depth.  Plus, they have the salary cap space.

Also, Damien Williams was signed for $5m over 2 years to be the backup, and at that time, did anyone really know what to expect from him?  He was an unknown quantity, and the Chiefs still paid him $2.5m.  So why is everyone making such a big deal about McCoy's $4m when he's a known quantity?

A lot of people are calling him washed up. If so, why did he look better than Singletary, the fantasy world's darling de jour?

 

He was BUF worst ypa RB last year, and that group of RBs was hardly stellar, to say the least.  Same offense, same line, same plays. You can’t just dismiss that for a 31 yr old RB who has seen his share of work.

As the season goes on possibly but I think short term Williams should be the main piece of the backfield

FA Contracts are about supply and demand.  McCoy had pretty high demand, relatively speaking.  So he commanded higher guaranteed dollars.  Only the $3M is guaranteed, so the $4M is based upon his hitting $900k worth of incentives - which he may not.  

 

McCoy is going to play.  They didn’t pay him $3M to watch from the bench and he won’t be playing STs.  But right now the time share and situational use between Williams and McCoy (and Darwin) is completely up in the air and no one knows how it will shake out right now.  Probably not even Reid - who I think will be playing the hot hand RB this season.  That could be any of the 3 any given game.

I don't think McCoy is going to do all too much this season, unlike the general consensus on this thread.

He was awful last year, is 31 and has a lot of tread on the tires. Father time catches up to running backs faster than any other position. I think he's in the mix for snaps early but gets phased out in favour of Damien Williams the longer the season goes.

I mean, the Texans are paying Clowney $7 million to play for the Seahawks...
