LeSean McCoy hasn't seen the field much in recent weeks, recording a combined one offensive snap across the Kansas City Chiefs' two postseason games.

Unfortunately, it looks like this trend will continue in the Super Bowl, as McCoy has officially been listed as inactive ahead of the game.

Needless to say, this completely erases any value McCoy had, both from a fantasy and betting perspective.

In his absence, Damien Williams should see the bulk of the work, so this news is certainly a boon for any bettors who wagered on Williams' prop bets, or are using him in fantasy.

Additionally, Darwin Thompson will likely serve as the Chiefs' No. 2 back, and it's fair to expect Thompson to see a slight uptick in usage with McCoy once again riding the pine.
