Scouting report

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Denver Broncos
After the Lions fell behind big to the Bucs last week, J.D. McKissic saw only three touches for nine yards before leaving in the third quarter with a stinger. Bo Scarbrough was out due to an injury, so it was Wes Hills that was given the start and received most of the team’s carries. With Scarbrough and regular starter Kerryon Johnson likely back this week, there is no reason for McKissic to even be taking up a roster spot.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Lions totaled just 231 yards of offense at Minnesota last Sunday as J.D. McKissic finished with 18 yards on five touches. In the past four games, he has only seven carries and 11 receptions, averaging 29 yards and no scores. McKissic’s main value comes in the passing attack and Detroit has a good matchup versus the Bucs No. 31 aerial defense, but there have to be better options for you at RB.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Minnesota Vikings
On Thanksgiving versus the Bears, J.D. McKissic finished with nine rushing and 15 receiving yards. With Bo Scarbrough taking over as the team’s No. 1 RB, over the past three games McKissic is averaging just 32 total yards. Against Minnesota in Week 7, he posted 60 yards on just seven touches but should not be started on Sunday.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Chicago Bears
Bo Scarbrough has become Detroit’s clear No. 1 RB, relegating J.D. McKissic to mainly pass-catching downs. At Washington last Sunday, he finished with only a three-yard carry and two catches for 17 yards. With the emergence of Scarbrough the past two weeks, McKissic has nine total touches and one TD on the season. Although he totaled 55 yards on 16 touches earlier this month at Chicago, McKissic will be facing the No. 4 overall defense and should likely remain on your bench.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Washington Redskins
With Bo Scarbrough handling most of the rushing attempts for Detroit last week, J.D. McKissic finished with 13 yards on the ground and three receptions for 40 yards. Over the past three contests, McKissic is averaging 10 touches and 60 yards in what remains a very crowded backfield. Expect Scarbrough to be the leading rusher against the Redskins on Sunday, with McKissic’s main role coming in the passing game. He can be used as an RB3/flex option.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Dallas Cowboys
In the loss at Chicago last week, J.D. McKissic led Detroit with a season-high 10 carries but for just 36 yards. He also was the leading receiver with six catches, but for limited yardage as well – 19. During the past two weeks, McKissic has received the most touches (23) and total yards (127) of the Lions RBs. With no true workhorse, it will continue to be an RBBC approach, with McKissic likely the best option, especially if Ty Johnson isn't cleared to return from his concussion protocol. If Jeff Driskel is again the team’s signal-caller, the ground game may be called upon to help the inexperienced QB. Dallas has an average run defense, so consider McKissic an RB3/flex play.

DET RB J.D. McKissic - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Chicago Bears
Last Sunday in Oakland, J.D. McKissic had his best game with the Lions, finishing with seven touches for 72 total yards and his first TD with the team. He led Detroit with 32 yards on the ground but will continue to share carries with Ty Johnson and Paul Perkins. With the crowded backfield and Matthew Stafford already having some solid weapons in the passing game, McKissic is a risky fantasy start, especially facing a solid Bears defense on the road.
