RB - WAS
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic has gained weight this offseason. The offensive weapon "was bulking up because he didn’t want to be thought of as only a pass-catching back."
McKissic has been a valuable receiving option and benefitted tremendously from Alex Smith's checkdown approach last season. Out of all running backs in the NFL, he was arguably the second-best pass-catcher behind Alvin Kamara. In 2020, he logged 85 carries for 365 yards and 80 catches for 589 yards while backing up standout rookie Antonio Gibson. In total, he scored three times. The 27-year-old ranks 50th among running backs in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
J.D. McKissic rushed twice for five yards and a touchdown in addition to catching two of three targets for eight yards in a 31-23 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday.
McKissic struggled to get much going on the ground or through the air, although he was afforded a goal-line opportunity early in the second quarter which he converted successfully. McKissic is likely to remain the back-up running back to Antonio Gibson heading into 2021.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed twice for no yardage and caught five of his eight targets for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
McKissic did most of his damage as a pass-catcher this season with 80 receptions for 589 yards and two touchdowns while rushing 85 times for 365 yards and one touchdown.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed four times for 15 yards and caught eight of his 10 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers.
McKissic has now caught 75 passes for 559 yards and two touchdowns on the season, and he continued to be involved in the passing game on Sunday despite the return of Antonio Gibson.
Washington running back J.D. McKissic rushed 13 times for 51 yards and caught nine of his 10 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Filling in for the injured Antonio Gibson, McKissic saw an increased role again on Sunday against the Seahawks. His 22 touches are a new season-high, as are his 107 total yards. His value for Week 16 will ultimately be determined by whether or not Gibson is able to return, but he will still have appeal in PPR leagues even if Gibson plays.
