J.D. McKissic, RB (WAS)

Tops 100 total yards

McKissic rushed the ball eight times for 45 yards in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City. He added eight receptions for 65 yards.

McKissic saw a season-high eight rushing attempts, in part because Antonio Gibson was battling both shin and calf injuries. Even with increased activity on the ground, McKissic did the majority of his damage as a receiver serving as a checkdown option for Taylor Heinicke. McKissic topped 100 total yards for the first time this season and has racked up multiple receptions in four of six contests. If Gibson is forced to miss time, McKissic would likely share the backfield with Jaret Patterson.
