McKissic rushed six times for 43 yards and caught three of four targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Bengals. McKissic was less involved as a pass-catcher after drawing at least six targets in five of the previous six games, but he delivered his second-highest rushing yardage total of the season while topping seven yards per attempt. Fellow running back Antonio Gibson got 16 carries and scored his fifth touchdown in the last four games, as Washington continues to get both the shifty McKissic and the powerful Gibson involved heading into a Thanksgiving Day matchup against a generous Dallas defense.
McKissic carried eight times for six yards and a touchdown while catching seven of 15 targets for an additional 43 yards during Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Lions. McKissic averaged just 0.8 yards per carry but managed to score his first touchdown of the season on a one-yard plunge in the third quarter. He mostly made his mark as a receiver and his 15 targets easily led the team, while his seven grabs tied for first. McKissic has been targeted a whopping 29 times over the last two games and will clearly maintain a large role in the offense most weeks when game flow allows, especially with the typically conservative Alex Smith at the helm. This should remain the case in what will most likely be a competitive game against the Bengals next Sunday.
McKissic caught nine of a team-high 14 targets for 65 receiving yards, adding three rushes for 17 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Giants. McKissic dominated both the RB and the team pass-catching workload, as he attracted as many targets as Washington's second- and third-highest targeted players combined (Terry McLaurin at eight targets, and Logan Thomas at six). The running back's passing game role has been steady for over the past month now, as McKissic has garnered six-plus catches in four of his past five outings, averaging 42 receiving yards per game during that span. Looking ahead to Week 10, McKissic next faces a Lions defense that ranks seventh worst in the NFL with 413 receiving yards allowed to opposing RBs on the season.
McKissic carried five times for 35 yards and caught both his targets for an additional 16 yards during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys. McKissic was quite effective as a ball carrier, averaging 7.0 yards per carry, but he didn't make his usual impact as a pass catcher with his team playing from ahead throughout the game. He could have more passes thrown his way in Week 9 against the Giants following the WFT's Week 8 bye, but he seems unlikely to take over as the lead back anytime soon after Antonio Gibson erupted for 128 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in this one. As such, McKissic should be left on the bench in the majority of fantasy formats.
McKissic rushed eight times for 41 yards and secured all six targets for 43 yards in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday. McKissic continued to enjoy a steady role in the offense, outpacing backfield mate Antonio Gibson in total touches by one and posting at least six receptions for the third straight game. The eight carries tied a season high for McKissic, who appears to have a relatively modest but consistent role as a pass-catching option that can occasionally see larger-than-expected opportunity on the ground. McKissic will look to build on Sunday's season-best effort versus the Cowboys in Week 7.
