  Football Team | J.D. McKissic totals 93 yards, scores    Fri Sep 17, 01:56 AM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic ran four times for 10 yards and a touchdown on Thursday, Sept. 16, against the New York Giants. McKissic was also targeted six times as a receiver, catching five for 83 yards.

Footballguys view: McKissic doesn't get consistent enough work to trust in fantasy lineups, but he is still a good player and contributor to this offense. Consider him a desperation play and decent end of the bench depth in PPR leagues.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic made most of touches    Sat Jul 10, 12:29 PM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic finished fifth among running backs in 2020 with an average of 5.8 yards per touch.

Footballguys view: McKissic had a whopping 80 receptions last year working as a slot option and receiver out of the backfield. With the offseason addition of Curtis Samuel, who plays in the same area of the field, McKissic's role this season is in question. There's also buzz about starting RB Antonio Gibson getting some more work as a pass catcher in 2021. McKissic is a RB5/deep flex play with these question marks, but he is getting drafted at RB41 (8.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic busy in pass game    Sat Jan 23, 10:41 PM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic's 589 receiving yards and 80 receptions trailed only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara among running backs in 2020.

Footballguys view: McKissic was signed to a two-year deal, so he'll be back with Antonio Gibson next year and should be drafted in every PPR league.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed once for six yards and caught both of his targets for 21 yards in a 41-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12.

Footballguys view: McKissic looked sharp on his touches but wasn't needed much as Antonio Gibson and Terry McLaurin accounted for most of the offense. He'll get a big target share next week against Pittsburgh and should still be rostered in PPR leagues.

  Football Team | Washington to use committee at RB    Wed Sep 9, 01:51 PM

Washington Football Team RBs Peyton Barber, Antonio Gibson, Bryce Love and J.D. McKissic are all candidates to receive playing time in Week 1 since head coach Ron Rivera said the team will use a committee approach at the position.

Footballguys view: The Football Team has some interesting options in the backfield. Gibson is arguably the best all-around talent and he can work well as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Love has explosive capability and can make field-flipping plays. Barber is a solid-yet-unspectacular veteran. McKissic is listed as the no.1 back on the depth chart and is a pass-catching back. This RBBC is one Fantasy GMs should avoid early and give it some time to see how it plays out.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic listed as starter    Tue Sep 8, 12:28 PM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic is listed as the starter on the team's first depth chart.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting placement here and one that could move around quite a bit this season. McKissic is in a backfield with a lot of inexperience (minus Peyton Barber) with rookie Antonio Gibson and second-year pro Bryce Love. We expect that Washington will use a RBBC featuring McKissic as the pass-catching back. Fantasy GMs have lottery ticket picks in Gibson and Love hoping that one of them pays off. McKissic could be a waiver wire addition in deep leagues if he's the lead back and gets more touches in Week 1.
