Washington Football Team
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. It was reported earlier that McKissic was practicing, but he only managed to do some work on a side field. The 28-year-old pass-catching back suffered an injury in Week 12 and sat out the Week 13 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. It's unclear if he'll be cleared from the league's concussion protocol in time to play on Sunday against the division-rival Dallas Cowboys. With McKissic out, Antonio Gibson saw another heavy workload with 23 carries for 88 yards while catching five of six targets for 23 yards and a touchdown. Wendell Smallwood saw just two targets, catching one for 13 yards. If McKissic misses another game, Gibson will have RB1 upside against Dallas.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic (concussion) is back at practice on Wednesday, which is a good step towards him being active on Sunday against the Cowboys. While McKissic himself might not be fantasy viable outside of PPR leagues, his return could put a dent in the fantasy value of Antonio Gibson. With McKissic out, Gibson has seen a huge chunk of the passing-down usage, which could revert back to McKissic. That's not great news in a showdown against the Cowboys, where Washington figures to be down and passing for much of the second half of the game. Gibson is still a strong play but perhaps moves back to RB2 value.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for the Week 13 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. McKissic suffered a concussion in the Monday night win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12 and wasn't cleared in time to play this weekend. The 28-year-old scored both of Washington's touchdowns in that Monday night game, but Antonio Gibson, who saw a season-high 29 carries last week, should once again see a very heavy workload against the Raiders on Sunday. Rookie Jaret Patterson will serve as a chance of pace and could be worth considering as an RB4/flex in much deeper leagues with McKissic sidelined. The Raiders D has allowed 125.9 rushing yards per game, eighth-most in the NFL this year. Gibson has clear RB1 upside in Week 13.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol and didn't practice for a second straight day on Thursday. McKissic scored the team's only two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) in the Monday night win over the Seattle Seahawks, but he suffered a head/neck injury late in the game and is now seriously in danger of missing the Week 13 contest against the Las Vegas Raiders. Antonio Gibson would be in line for a huge workload against a vulnerable Raiders run defense if McKissic is unable to play, giving him easy RB1 upside. Rookie Jaret Patterson would see a bigger role behind Gibson if McKissic is unable to play, but it's debatable whether he'll have standalone value. Friday's practice will be big for McKissic's weekend status.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic (neck) was not spotted at practice on Wednesday after getting injured in the Monday night win over the Seattle Seahawks. McKissic scored both of the team's touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) in their Week 12 victory, but he suffered a neck injury late in the game and could be in danger of sitting out in Week 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 28-year-old has been a decent RB3/flex in PPR leagues as the team's pass-catching complement to Antonio Gibson this year, but if he can't get back on the practice field later this week, rookie Jaret Patterson could have a much bigger role alongside Gibson in Washington's backfield.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic found the end zone twice in Monday's win over Seattle while totaling 56 yards from scrimmage on 12 touches. McKissic suffered what appeared to be a neck injury late in the game, so he will have an uncertain status moving forward. If he is to miss some time, Antonio Gibson will likely have an expanded role in the passing game, and rookie Jaret Patterson would carve out a larger role in the Washington offense. If McKissic is able to get away without missing any time, he will continue to be on the FLEX radar in PPR formats because of his consistent role in the offense as a pass-catcher and occasional ball-carrier.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic has some upside in Week 12 against his former team. Washington running back coach Randy Jordan referred to McKissic as "one of the best pass-catching backs in the league," so he could find himself on the FLEX radar in PPR formats against a weak opposing defense. Seattle has been generous to running backs in the past few weeks, and McKissic should see some meaningful opportunity in what could be a pass-heavy game script. From Week 6 to Week 10, McKissic caught 24 passes in four games on 28 targets. He has a realistic chance to see between six and eight targets on Monday night, which puts him well in the discussion for starting lineup options in conventional-sized formats.
Washington Football Team wide receiver J.D. McKissic doesn't look like a solid option in Week 11 after Antonio Gibson was back to his usual workhorse role in Week 10. McKissic handled just two carries for four yards and caught four passes for 35 yards on four targets. He played a far less significant percentage of snaps last week, as Jaret Patterson has been added to the mix in the backfield, albeit in a limited fashion. At best, McKissic is a low-end flex play in what should be a neutral game script for the Washington offense. His usage could increase if they are trailing in this one, but the Carolina offense doesn't seem like they will run Washington out of the building as Cam Newton gets familiar with Carolina's playbook.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic could once again find a significant role in the offense against Tampa Bay in Week 10. Antonio Gibson's role has been decreased over the past number of games, and McKissic has remained the top option in the passing game out of the backfield. Going against the elite run defense of Tampa Bay could mean McKissic has an increased role in this game, as teams have been reluctant to establish the run against the defense that has allowed the second-fewest rushing yards all season. Not to mention, the most likely game script for this contest will call for a lot of passing plays from quarterback Taylor Heinicke as the Washington offense tries to play catchup. McKissic is a solid FLEX option in PPR leagues this week.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic led the team in receptions and receiving yards on Sunday, posting eight receptions for 83 yards and also adding three carries for 10 yards. McKissic is playing his way into weekly flex consideration with his large role in the passing game, especially considering he has led the team in receiving on multiple occasions this season. With Antonio Gibson clearly not 100%, McKissic could see his value skyrocket if Gibson misses any action. For now, keep him stashed on the bench through Washington's Week 9 bye.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic has some flex appeal in Week 8 against a Denver Broncos defense that has struggled as of late. His usage as a pass-catching back is valuable in PPR formats, as he has been targeted 16 times in his past two games. With Antonio Gibson(shin) not 100% healthy, McKissic will likely once again see enough carries and targets to be fantasy relevant, even though Gibson is in line to receive the bulk of reps as the ball-carrier. With a season-high of eight carries, McKissic has been able to stay fantasy relevant because of his role in the passing game. His ceiling is likely limited, but he has a safe floor, which makes him worthy of consideration as a starting option for fantasy managers.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic out-snapped Antonio Gibson 46-30 in Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers. Gibson has been dealing with a shin injury that has been limiting his production the past couple of weeks, so that is certainly playing a factor in the increased playing time for McKissic. Moving forward, Gibson's value will be slightly decreased because of his limited role in the passing game. As of late, unless he scores a touchdown he is not producing consistent numbers for fantasy managers. McKissic could have FLEX-appeal in PPR leagues moving forward if he continues to out snap the sophomore, and would vault into RB2 territory if Gibson's shin injury eventually causes him to miss time.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic finished with four carries for 22 yards and four receptions for 34 yards, totaling 56 yards while seeing limited action. McKissic has carved out a significant role in the passing game, so that alone should be an incentive for fantasy managers to stash him moving forward. Not to mention, Antonio Gibson has been dealing with a significant injury that could eventually cause him to miss some time. In Week 7, McKissic could see some extra work against a Denver run defense that was carved up by D'Ernest Johnson and the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic is entering himself into weekly FLEX consideration as he once again has carved out a significant role in the passing game. With Antonio Gibson (shin) banged up, McKissic could see some increased reps as a ball-carrier along with his significant target share in the passing game. The 28-year-old led Washington in both receptions and receiving yards last week, as the offense was forced into a pass-heavy game script. This could once again be the case in Week 7 as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will give the Washington defense all they can handle. He out-touched Gibson 16-12 in the loss to Kansas City, meaning we could see a repeat of this if the offense starts chasing the game. Considering the matchup, McKissic is a borderline top-20 play and offers RB2 upside in PPR leagues.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic led the team in receptions and receiving yards with eight catches for 65 yards in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He added 45 yards on the ground on just eight carries, so he was extremely efficient out of the backfield against a weak Kansas City defense. The negative game script allowed McKissic to have a significant role, as he is still clearly above Antonio Gibson in terms of the receiving game. Fantasy managers shouldn't get accustomed to this type of usage, as Gibson will still have a huge role in the offense moving forward, making McKissic a FLEX-play at best in deep leagues. However, if he were to miss any time, McKissic's fantasy value would skyrocket.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic found the end zone once again in Week 4, as he finished with 15 yards on the ground and an additional 44 yards through the air with a receiving touchdown. McKissic will continue to have FLEX-appeal in deeper leagues because of his role in the passing game, and his value would skyrocket if Gibson were to miss any time going forward. In Week 5 against New Orleans, McKissic could play a more significant role than usual if Gibson is unable to find rushing lanes against the elite run defense of the Saints.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic didn't play much of a factor in the team's 43-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. He rushed three times for 23 yards and caught both of his targets for 15 yards. However, he logged a season-high 46% of the snaps while the team's No. 1 back Antonio Gibson logged a season-low 57%. McKissic had a strong game in Week 2 against the New York Giants, catching five passes for 83 yards while adding 10 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown. He should continue to be a big part of the Washington offense going forward and he's got a fantastic matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. He'll be worthy of flex consideration in the matchup.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic had an impressive performance in Week 2, finishing with five receptions for 83 receiving yards and four carries for 10 rushing yards and a touchdown. From his Week 1 usage, it didn't seem like he would be as big of a factor as he was last year, but on Thursday night he showed he was still able to be a contributor in the Washington offense. Nonetheless, too much stock shouldn't be put into this performance because it was a short week for Washington and Antonio Gibson was nursing a shoulder injury leading up to game day. Going forward, McKissic is worth a bench spot because if anything happens to Gibson, he would step into a significant role. Even after an impressive performance, he shouldn't be inserted into starting lineups anytime soon.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic was one of the best pass-catching running backs in all of the NFL last year after recording 80 receptions (110 targets) while serving as the primary third-down back. Antonio Gibson is primed for a larger workload as a sophomore, so McKissic's outlook is not nearly as promising this season. In what should be a low-scoring contest against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1, the 28-year-old can be left on the bench in fantasy lineups because of the anticipated workhorse role of Gibson. Last year, the Chargers ranked near the middle of the league in terms of rushing yards allowed per game and allowed the ninth-fewest passing yards per game. It would be best to take a wait-and-see approach with McKissic before inserting him into fantasy lineups.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic was active in the team's first preseason game on Thursday but was used sparingly. He handled just one carry which turned into two yards and caught one pass for three yards. The lack of work in the first preseason game wasn't a surprise considering McKissic is locked in as the No. 2 running back in Washington. However, his usage in the game signifies that he will once again have a big role on third down with Antonio Gibson handling the bulk of the carries. McKissic's role can once again limit the upside of Gibson, but there is no need to overreact from one preseason game. Gibson had three targets and caught two passes for 14 yards, so it is safe to assume he is going to have a larger role in the passing game this season. Gibson remains a lower-end RB1 and high-end RB2, while McKissic is a strong bench player with some flex appeal in PPR leagues.
During the 2020 season, Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic showed that he can be one of the best pass-catching backs in the NFL. Going into 2021, McKissic made it a priority to add weight so that he is able to be more effective running between the tackles. When asked about his expectation for next season, McKissic said, "Not to limit myself to just be a one-run type back. That means a lot to me to be able to get those types of runs in games." On 85 carries, McKissic rushed for 365 yards last season. Although McKissic has expressed his desire for an increased role carrying the football, Washington has Antonio Gibson ready to take a leap in his sophomore season. Unless something were to happen to Gibson, McKissic will likely once again see most of his work come in the passing game. He is worth a roster spot in PPR leagues and will have weekly flex appeal.
NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay predicts that both Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic and tight end Logan Thomas will see fewer targets in the passing game in 2021. McKissic had 110 targets last season, with Finlay projecting a 20 percent or more drop. Quarterbacks Alex Smith and Dwayne Haskins were too reliant on throwing to McKissic, with Ryan Fitzpatrick and/or Taylor Heinicke taking more chances downfield. Thomas also had 110 targets in 2020, but with more weapons available in the passing game, he should also see fewer looks. Don't overspend on McKissic because of his surprise output last year. He'll be more of a low-end RB3/flex in PPR leagues. Thomas should be more attractive at his position as a low-end TE1, just don't expect him to finish in the top five.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic rushed twice for five yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday. McKissic added eight yards on two catches in the passing game. McKissic was on the field a lot for Washington, but seemed to do more blocking than route running as the passing-down specialist saw only three targets. He salvaged some fantasy value with a two-yard touchdown plunge, just his second rushing score this season. McKissic proved his value this season as an elite pass-catcher with 80 receptions this season, second to only Alvin Kamara. He'll be an asset in PPR leagues heading into 2021.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic had a sneaky good season as a passing-down specialist and faces the ideal matchup in the opening round of the playoffs. McKissic led all running backs with 110 targets this season, and his 80 receptions were second to only Alvin Kamara. Tampa Bay's pass-funnel defense plays right into McKissic's wheelhouse, as the Bucs allowed a league-leading 101 receptions to running backs. McKissic's upside is limited by rookieAntonio Gibsonreturning last week and handling the bulk of the carries. However, McKissic has a safe floor because of his role in the passing game.
Washington Football Team running back J.D. McKissic caught five passes for 30 yards and handled just two carries for no yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. McKissic was involved with eight targets, but he couldn't get much going against an Eagles Defense surprisingly good at defending pass-catching running backs. McKissic finishes the season as one of just two running backs (Alvin Kamara) to have over 100 targets as he carved out a solid role in the offense as a check down option for Alex Smith. McKissic is a solid PPR option at running back and will take on a good Buccaneers Defense in the first round of the playoffs.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
