Shines in dramatic win
McKissic caught five of six targets for 83 yards and took four carries for 10 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Giants.
It was a huge turnaround after the pass-catching back got just one carry and one target in the Week 1 loss to Los Angeles. It initially looked like more of the same Thursday night, but McKissic was steadily involved once he got his first touch midway through the second quarter. He even scored a two-yard TD on a 3rd-and-1 shortly before halftime, and his 56-yard catch in the fourth quarter set up a TD strike to TE Ricky Seals-Jones on the next play. Meanwhile, Antonio Gibson had 13 carries for 69 yards and two catches for four yards, dropping off from 23 touches the previous week. Even after the impressive performance, McKissic remains a risky fantasy play heading into Week 3 at Buffalo.
