WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic is now signing back with the Commanders.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that McKissic has changed is mind after coming to an agreement with the Bills and instead will return to Washington on the same two-year, $7 million deal. Remember, deals during the legal tampering period are not official and cannot be signed until the start of the new league year. So, McKissic is back with the team where he's been a heavily-utilized receiver in Scott Turner's offense. Meanwhile, the Bills are still probably in search of another running back to add to the backfield mix.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Bills are signing J.D. McKissic.

This is a surprise signing, but McKissic is an excellent receiving weapon out of the backfield for Josh Allen and Buffalo to utilize. It's a two-year deal for the former Washington running back, who joins Devin Singletary and Zack Moss in the Bills backfield. McKissic had 80 receptions a couple of seasons ago.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

Washington has placed J.D. McKissic (neck) on injured reserve.

McKissic is still dealing with the effects of a big hit from a Monday night game against Seattle to end November, so he's unfortunately now being placed on injured reserve. Washington will have to lean on Antonio Gibson more in the passing game tonight and for at least the next two games as they try to again make a late-season playoff push. If cleared, McKissic will have a chance to return for the season finale and/or postseason.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Week 15.

This is McKissic's third consecutive missed game while remaining in the concussion protocol. Hopefully the versatile running back is feeling OK and back to 100% soon.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 13.

This was expected after McKissic went down on Monday night, and hopefully he can get healthy soon. Look for Antonio Gibson to handle another monster workload coming off a 36-touch performance.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets carted off against the Seahawks.

McKissic took a leg to the head and was in immediate discomfort. Hopefully the good news is that McKissic was moving and kicking in apparent frustration after he was hit, so hopefully he’s OK. And he did sit up and appeared to be in good spirits. Before leaving, the playmaking running back had seven carries for 30 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown along with five receptions for 26 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Redskins are signing J.D. McKissic, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

McKissic joins a deep running back group in Washington, but he'll look to carve out a role as a receiving option out of the backfield in particular. Right now, it's difficult to see McKissic having strong fantasy value in 2020.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Lions claimed J.D. McKissic.

McKissic gives the Lions more depth as a versatile running back that can also contribute as a receiver and on special teams. McKissic might get a few snaps per game to start, but he's not a recommended fantasy option right now.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Seahawks have released J.D. McKissic.

Seattle is keeping C.J. Prosise and rookie Travis Homer as the pass-catching options behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. McKissic could draw interest from other teams at either running back or receiver.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic scores in loss to the Cowboys.

McKissic caught two passes for 13 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to cut the Dallas lead to 24-22 (including the two-point conversion). Unfortunately, Seattle couldn't recover the onside kick. McKissic is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact in 2019.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic rushed once for six yards in Sunday night's win over the Chiefs.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. McKissic can stay on the waiver wire for the season finale.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic rushed twice for two yards in Sunday's loss to San Francisco.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game, as Mike Davis (8/63) is the most trusted receiver for Seattle. McKissic is unlikely to make much of an impact over the final two weeks of the regular season.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Seahawks officially activated J.D. McKissic to the 53-man roster.

This was expected to happen, and now it's official. McKissic joins a crowded backfield, but he could immediately have a role as a versatile player that can also play some receiver. He's not a recommended fantasy pickup at the moment, though.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Seahawks designated J.D. McKissic (foot) to return from injured reserve.

McKissic returned to practice today and now has 21 days to get activated to the 53-man roster or remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season. McKissic is returning from a Jones fracture in his foot suffered during the summer. The explosive third-year back isn't a recommended fantasy pickup in a crowded backfield, but he could help the Seahawks in real life if he's able to return.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

The Seahawks placed J.D. McKissic on injured reserve.

McKissic can return after eight games if he’s one of Seattle’s two potential designated to return players. Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and C.J. Prosise will lead the backfield to start the season.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic is expected to miss four-to-six weeks with a Jones’ fracture, according to Adam Schefter.

McKissic impressed last season with a 34/266/2 receiving line, but he was likely set to open 2018 with a minimal role at best. The 25-year-old is unlikely to become a factor this season with Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and C.J. Prosise all ahead of him for touches. He will hope to be back before October.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets seven touches in Week 17.

McKissic had four carries for nine yards and three receptions for 20 yards against the Cardinals. The former college receiver's regular season ends with 46 carries for 187 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown along with 34 receptions for 266 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. He has a chance at a receiving role in Seattle's backfield next season.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets nine touches against the Rams.

In a game the Seahawks weren't competitive in, McKissic was one of the lone bright spots for the team. He had six carries for 20 yards and three receptions for 38 yards, including a long of 26 on a go route where he went up to get the ball. Seattle's offense should get clicking next week against the Cowboys, but McKissic isn't a very strong fantasy option in standard leagues.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic caught five passes for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jags.

He also rushed three times for 15 yards. McKissic is locked in as the change-of-pace and receiving option behind Mike Davis, but he's probably not worth considering outside of PPR leagues. Seattle will take on the Rams for first place in the NFC West next Sunday.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKsissic scores against Philadelphia.

McKissic only had two touches in the game, but he had a key touchdown late that basically sealed it for the Seahawks. The score came on a smooth sluggo route that he beat Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks on to get wide open in the end zone for a 15-yarder. Overall, McKissic had one carry for -1 yards and one reception for 15 yards. He's a PPR FLEX option in deeper leagues for Week 14 against the Jags.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets eight touches in Week 12.

McKissic carried four times for 22 yards and added four receptions (on seven targets) for 24 yards. Of the members in Seattle's backfield, McKsissic is the one that appears to carry the most value right now—and it's mainly in PPR leagues. In standard leagues, it's difficult to trust anyone at running back for the Seahawks right now.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets 12 touches against the Falcons.

McKissic carried seven times for 30 yards and added five receptions for 23 yards in the Monday night loss. After Mike Davis left the game with a groin injury, McKissic still handled more work than Eddie Lacy in the backfield. Right now, he's the safest fantasy option of everyone in Seattle's backfield, but he's still not a reliable option in lineups yet.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets nine touches in Seahawks' win.

The rookie back carried five times for 26 yards and caught four of five targets for 20 yards versus the Cardinals. McKissic worked behind Thomas Rawls in the game, and he'll continue working as the primary third-down option if C.J. Prosise, who again suffered an ankle injury, misses more time. McKissic is more of a PPR option than standard.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets five touches versus Washington.

McKissic carried three times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in Seattle's loss. Eddie Lacy (groin) could be out for at least Week 10, so McKissic's role could increase a bit in the backfield. However, C.J. Prosise (ankle) might be good to go for Thursday night against Arizona, so it's a bit up in the air at this point.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets five touches in Week 8.

McKissic carried four times for six yards and caught one of two targets for six yards. The Seahawks aren't involving their running backs too much right now, so McKissic isn't a recommended FLEX option, even in PPR leagues.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets five touches against the Giants.

McKissic carried three times for ten yards and had two receptions (on two targets) for 23 yards. Before he even got a touch, C.J. Prosise left the game with an ankle injury again, so it looks like MsKissic will have a nice role on passing downs until Prosise returns—which probably won't be in Week 8. Still, McKissic isn't a reliable fantasy option, as he will have games where he's not very involved.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic gets seven touches in Week 5.

McKissic carried twice for no yards and added three receptions (on five targets) for 36 yards. We’ll have to see how McKissic is used it C.J. Prosise (ankle) is healthy after the team’s Week 6 bye week.

J.D. McKissic | Commanders RB

J.D. McKissic scores twice in season debut.

McKissic rushed four times for 38 yards and a touchdown, also adding a 27-yard touchdown reception. With C.J. Prosise out, McKissic got his chance in a change-of-pace/receiving role, and he definitely took advantage of it. Even with Chris Carson going down with a serious lower-leg injury, Seattle has a bunch of guys worthy of touches in the backfield. That makes it a frustrating situation, and it might be best to avoid it altogether.
