LeSean McCoy doesn't understand the criticism surrounding him heading into the 2019 season.

McCoy, 31, ran for a career-low 514 yards in 2018.

The running back said he has learned "there's always talk about something," and he generally uses it as motivation.

"It's kind of weird," McCoy said. "Since I was 9 years old, I've been, like, the top guy. So it's weird to hear stuff like that. The good thing is, I've learned how the media is, how you guys are, how people are, how fans are ... fantasy team owners. You have a bad two games and three hot ones and you're the man.

"It's the NFL, this is how it is. I'm fine with that. I know who I am."
