Week 8 Outlook
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed five times for 35 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
After catching at least six passes in three straight contests, McKissic only had two receptions in this one with Washington playing with the lead for most of the day. He did average seven yards per carry on the ground, but it was rookie Antonio Gibson who saw the bulk of the work in the running game on Sunday.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed eight times for 41 yards and caught all six of his targets for 43 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.
McKissic outproduced rookie Antonio Gibson on Sunday and has now caught six or more passes in three straight games, give him some low-end value in PPR leagues.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed one time for three yards and caught six of his eight targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
McKissic is not seeing many carries in the running game but now has 13 receptions on 16 targets over the last two games, so he is starting to see more work in the passing game. With a change at quarterback, it's possible that his role in this offense continues to grow, but it is hard to trust him in most formats with Antonio Gibson seeing the majority of the work most weeks.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed two times for six yards and caught seven of his eight targets for 40 yards in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He also lost a fumble.
McKissic is losing touches to Antonio Gibson but saw a season-high eight targets in the passing game on Sunday, giving him a boost in PPR formats. He isn't someone fantasy managers will want to start most weeks, but he can be rostered as a handcuff to Gibson if roster space allows.
J.D. Mckissic had five carries for 15 yards and added three receptions for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns.
McKissic has very little upside, but it looks as though he has carved out a role in this Washington offense. He had just four carries less than Antonion Gibson and the same amount of receptions. Washington continues to be in negative game scripts, so McKissic's value as a receiver may make him a desperation FLEX or bye week fill in.
