Those in the dynasty world of fantasy football probably aren't surprised, though. The team will now likely keep undrafted free agent Patterson as the result of Barber's release. There was all kinds of positive feedback on Patterson's camp this season, and he looked good in preseason games on top of that. He now looks to be in a possible RB3 role and backup to Gibson while McKissic is the change of pace and pass-catching option.
WAS RB J.D. McKissic - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
J.D. McKissic had a tough outing last week, rushing twice for -1 yard and catching just one pass for eight yards (on four targets). Last season, McKissic was pretty much gold every week for PPR formats, but this year has been more matchup and game-flow-based. He gets a good matchup this week against the Chiefs in what could be an offensive shootout.
The Chiefs have given up the sixth-most receiving yards to running backs this season, so McKissic has a better chance at production this week. Still, he's a difficult back to trust given his up-and-down production. He should be viewed as a low-end flex play in PPR formats.
