2019 Fantasy Outlook
McKissic made some noise in 2017 with 453 scrimmage yards and three TDs on 80 touches, but he was a non-factor a year ago following the addition of first-round pick Rashaad Penny to the backfield alongside starter Chris Carson. McKissic could get on the field more this season with the departure of Mike Davis in free agency, not to mention C.J. Prosise's next inevitable injury. The best-case scenario for McKissic is a role on passing downs, while the worst-case scenario is losing his roster spot to 2019 sixth-round pick Travis Homer. Read Past Outlooks

Small role in season finale
RBDetroit Lions
December 30, 2019
McKissic didn't have a rushing attempt and caught one of two targets for four yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to Green Bay.
ANALYSIS
Detroit's ability to mount a two-touchdown lead at halftime meant the Lions spent most of the game trying to run out the clock. Had the score been reversed, it's possible McKissic's receiving chops could have played a bigger role in the offense. However, that wasn't the case, and McKissic ultimately saw just a handful of snaps while Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarbrough once again led the way on the ground. After totaling 438 yards on 72 touches (6.1 yards per touch) in 2019, McKissic now will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent entering his age-27 season in 2020.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
After barely playing as a rookie in 2016, McKissic made his way onto the game-day roster in Week 4 and never looked back, finishing the year as the Seahawks' main receiving option out of the backfield. At 5-10, 195, the converted college wideout lacks the size to be an every-down running back in the NFL, but he's a mismatch against linebackers given his sharp routes and elusiveness, and he showed he can contribute on the ground when he took his first carry of the season 30 yards for a score. McKissic was trying to beat out C.J. Prosise for a role on passing downs, but a Jones fracture suffered in late August ended McKissic's bid.
