Football Team RB Antonio Gibson (toe, doubtful) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is doubtful for Week 15. J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber will split the work.
WAS RB J.D. McKissic - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Philadelphia Eagles
J.D. McKissic has been a PPR dream this season, and finished with another strong game last week with an 8-77-1 game as a receiver (he added 15 yards on the ground). McKissic saw 10 targets in that game, which is his fifth game this season with 10+ targets, and his third in his last four outings. McKissic benefitted from Antonio Gibson and Terry McLaurin's injuries last week, although he's had a big role in this offense all season. He gets a tough matchup against the Eagles this week, who have held running backs in check when it comes to receiving. Philly has allowed the eighth-fewest receptions and seventh-fewest receiving yards to RBs this season. Still, there's reason to like McKissic this week, especially if McLaurin sits again. McKissic is a strong RB2 play in PPR formats and more of an RB3/flex in standard.
