Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs CHI (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
For the second consecutive week, J.D. McKissic gave up third down work to Ty Johnson. McKissic still saw work, and nearly scored a touchdown on a toss sweep in the red zone but was stopped by a great tackle by Kyle Fuller. McKissic also showed well in the passing game making a great one-handed catch across the middle for a first down. McKissic's role is reduced in the offense the past two weeks and without consistent third down work, he is difficult to trust.
2019 Week 12 vs WAS (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
After multiple weeks of good play in the passing game, J.D. McKissic was nearly invisible on Sunday against Washington. Ty Johnson worked in the passing game throughout the first half, before McKissic saw a couple of opportunities late in the third quarter, where he caught a reception for a third down conversion and then had a carry which was called back by his own facemask penalty. He will face the Bears on Thanksgiving.
2019 Week 11 vs DAL (3 / 13 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 40 / 0 rec)
J.D. McKissic continued to have a strong role in the passing game on Sunday against Dallas. McKissic was able to make multiple defenders miss after the catch and ran elusively in limited touches in the running game. Bo Scarbrough has a limited passing-game resume, so McKissic should continue to have a role on third down and in negative game script. He will face Washington next week.
2019 Week 10 vs CHI (10 / 36 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 19 / 0 rec)
J.D. McKissic was the third back to get touches against the Bears on Sunday. McKissic worked in both the running and receiving game and saw a backfield high 16 touches. McKissic's running work was inflated because of a Ty Johnson concussion in the first quarter and ran hard despite being undersized. His better work was in the passing game, where he was largely used on check downs and short targets. McKissic was strong in pass protection and made a great adjustment to a ball that was called back by a penalty. He has carved out a role as the primary pass catcher in the backfield in a Kerryon Johnson-less backfield. He will likely have a negative game script in his favor against Dallas next week.
2019 Week 9 vs OAK (4 / 32 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 40 / 1 rec)
J.D. McKissic played in a committee with Ty Johnson against the Raiders on Sunday. He was effective running the ball despite a lost fumble and ran effectively on the interior and perimeter despite his small size. McKissic was involved in the passing game, including a thrown that was missed by Matthew Stafford but capitalized on his usage with a touchdown on a corner route out of the backfield. The backfield is in flux with Kerryon Johnson missing time, but McKissic has shown himself capable of playing in a committee going forward. He will face a tough Bears defense next week.
2019 Week 7 vs MIN (5 / 29 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
J.D. McKissic worked in a committee with Ty Johnson to replace an injured Kerryon Johnson against the Vikings. McKissic worked in some traditional running back roles, but was used in more gadget carries and manufactured touches. McKissic was also used in the passing game and played with good quickness. If Kerryon Johnson misses next week, he will project to function in the lesser part of a committee with Ty Johnson.
