PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was shown some love on the national stage this week. The back will be gracing the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
McCoy is featured on one of four regional covers for the magazine. Three of the covers are centered around fantasy football. Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs and Eddie Lacy of the Green Bay Packers will also be featured on regional covers.
UCLA’s Brett Hundley is also gracing a cover this week.
McCoy’s cover features an article titled “A World In Which LeSean McCoy And The Running Back Remain King.”
The cover helps McCoy’s argument that he is the NFL’s top running back, but the magazine ranked McCoy as the fourth best running back in fantasy football.
Check out the SI cover below:
