JD McKissic is the backup running back for the Washington Football Team. He is featured as the team’s receiving back and is more involved in their passing game than you may think. McKissic is second on the team in receptions, targets and receiving yards. He doesn’t get a lot of run on the ground which caps his upside, but he does have a role in this offense. He only has 25 rushing attempts which are tied with quarterback Taylor Heinicke. He has two total touchdowns on the season, one on the ground and one receiving.
