RB - WAS - OUT
Week 13 Outlook
Washington RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Raiders.
McKissic exited Monday's game against Seattle with the head injury and didn't practice this week. Antonio Gibson should see a spike in pass-game usage without McKissic, which could make him a strong RB2 play against Las Vegas.
Per Matthew Paras of the Washington Times, RB J.D. McKissic (concussion) did not practice for the team on Thursday.
This is now back-to-back missed practices for McKissic as he continues to deal with a concussion. At this point in time it would not be a shock to see McKissic miss Week 13's matchup vs the Raiders given that he has yet to be cleared. In that scenario expect a big boost in pass catching work for RB Antonio Gibson which would likely put him in the RB 1 category in PPR formats for fantasy purposes. If McKissic does play he will be a volatile RB 2/RB 3 option.
RB J.D. McKissic carried the ball seven times for 30 yards and a touchdown while catching five passes for 26 yards and another touchdown during the Washington Football Teams win against the Seahawks on Monday night.
McKissic played a great game scoring two touchdowns. but he was injured and had to be carted off the field. This is disappointing news for him and the team. Look for Gibson and Jaret Patterson to get more involved if he is to miss any time.
J.D. McKissic was limited at practice on Friday.
Antonio Gibson (shin) was limited as well. They both remain on track to play on Monday against Seattle. McKissic should be viewed as nothing more than a very desperate flex play in PPR leagues.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed seven times for 46 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
McKissic has had two mostly quiet games after the team's Week 9 bye week. In the three weeks before the bye, McKissic had caught a combined 24 passes. However, his seven carries were his most since Week six, and his 46 yards rushing are his most in a game this season. He remains a flex option in PPR formats, but his lack of involvement in the passing game over the last two weeks is discouraging.
