J.D. McKissic, RB, Detroit Lions
Ty Johnson left Week 10 against the Chicago Bears with a concussion, which left McKissic to play a season-high 57 snaps and take 10 carries for 36 yards along with six catches (on seven targets) for 19 yards.
If Matthew Stafford (back) remains out in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys, the Lions’ offense will have tough sledding with Jeff Driskel starting under center. And if Johnson is able to play, McKissic’s role in the ground game would diminish.
But the former Seahawk has at least three targets in five straight games, while posting at least 55 total yards three times in that span. In PPR leagues McKissic is a solid add, and even in standard leagues he might the Lions’ running back to own down the stretch.
