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.
