1. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
McCoy was a man on fire in his first season under Chip Kelly. His MVP-caliber performance included an NFL-best 1,607 rushing yards, 539 receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns. Iron sharpens iron, and McCoy heads into the 2014 season surrounded by several blades. Kelly’s offensive juggernaut should be all the more formidable in its second year, and Nick Foles gives McCoy something Peterson and Charles don’t have — a big-play passing threat to keep defenses honest. Shady is also working behind arguably the best offensive line in the league, and this year he has Darren Sproles to keep his legs fresh. McCoy remains the most elusive and well-rounded back in the game, and at 26 is just entering his prime. (Rich Schultz/Getty Photo)
