In times of trouble, you can always count on old friends to lend you a helping hand.

Doubly so if those old friends happen to be in charge of thin backfields.

LeSean McCoy, surprisingly cut by the Bills on Saturday morning, has finalized a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, and will rejoin his ex-Eagles head honcho Andy Reid in his eternal quest to win a Super Bowl.

For those who drafted Damien Williams in fantasy, we humbly apologize.

McCoy was hardly productive in 2018 in Buffalo, rushing for only 514 yards in 14 games played. The hope is he'll be rejuvenated in an offense with far more weapons to take the pressure off; we're not sure if McCoy is a bell cow at this stage, but Kansas City, still missing Kareem Hunt, is willing to find out.

Plus, this acquisition blocks McCoy from their AFC West rival, the Los Angeles Chargers, a team that may be without Melvin Gordon for an extended period of time.

A shot in the dark at a productive reunion is certainly worthwhile, in that regard.
