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.
Huddle Up: McKissic turned his nine touches into 93 total yards with 56 of them coming on a sideline route. He also vultured a goal-line carry, much to the dismay of Antonio Gibson owners, and cashed in from two yards out. McKissic has a pretty narrow window with which to generate fantasy value due to limited touches, but he continues making the most of them.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic finished fifth among running backs in 2020 with an average of 5.8 yards per touch.
Huddle Up: That's a number reflective of one of the league's top pass-catching backs -- McKissic finished with 80 catches, second only to Alvin Kamara's 83. That career-high number, though, is due for a dip with second-year lead back Antonio Gibson expected to be healthier and see more work in the passing game in 2021. It adds up to low-end RB4/RB5 expectations in PPR formats for McKissic.

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.
Huddle Up: McKissic's 7.4 yards per reception were far from impressive, but he did finish in the top 25 in catches. Unless Washington dramatically upgrades its offensive firepower in the offseason, McKissic should have value as a PPR flex option, especially in deeper leagues.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed four times for 15 yards in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers, and he added eight receptions for a team-high 77 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic's receiving yardage was a season best, and he has scored in back-to-back weeks through the air. He'll look to finish up strong in Philadelphia in Week 17.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed 13 times for a team-high 51 yards in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, his former team. He also added nine receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic was getting the lion's share of the backfield work with Antonio Gibson sidelined. He showed the Seahawks what they were missing, as he was the best running back on the field in this game. He has emerged as a solid RB3 in most fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats. Washington hosts the Carolina Panthers in Week 16.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed 11 times for a career-high 68 yards in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added two grabs for 18 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic will certainly be amped heading into Week 15 when he gets a crack at his original NFL organization, the Seattle Seahawks. Treat him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic caught 10 passes for 70 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13. He also rushed for eight yards on five carries during the game.
Huddle Up: McKissic likely received a few more targets this week because of Antonio Gibson's injury and probably will be involved in the passing game next week. He can be considered a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

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.
Huddle Up: After a couple of big games catching the football out of the backfield, McKissic has managed just five total receptions for 47 yards in the last two games. With Antonio Gibson establishing himself as an every-down back, McKissic has faded from PPR flex option to no more than a handcuff.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic rushed six times for 43 yards in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals while adding three receptions for 26 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic is a nice change of pace guy when Antonio Gibson needs a breather, and he is solid on passing downs, too. However, his fantasy ceiling is a bit limited as long as Gibson remains healthy and productive. Washington heads to Dallas for a Week 12 Thanksgiving battle.

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic has 16 receptions in the two games QB Alex Smith has started, and he has at least six catches in five of his last six games.
Huddle Up: McKissic is averaging 6.2 receptions over the last six games, finishing with 40-plus yards five times in that span. He has flex potential in PPR formats.
