Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will look to get things going against Philadelphia on Sunday. The 24-year-old has been a colossal disappointment through the first two games of the year, racking up an underwhelming 115 yards off of 35 attempts for a miserable 3.3 YPC. He has also hauled in just five catches for 42 yards. The former Sooner isn't a stranger to slow starts, especially since he didn't score on the ground until Week 11 of the 2019 campaign. Although Mixon hasn't done much to earn the trust of fantasy managers, there aren't many options with an upside as high as his. Keep him starting in all formats against the Eagles in Week 3.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon ran for 46 yards off of 16 carries during the loss to the Browns. He also added four catches for 40 yards. Mixon trended in the wrong direction on the ground after posting 69 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1. However, he did make his PPR fantasy managers a little more comfortable by providing an uptick in receptions and receiving yards. Nonetheless, opposing defenses may start paying additional attention to rookie signal-caller Joe Burrow after his three-touchdown performance on Thursday night. As a result, the door may open a little wider for the former Sooner to get some extra breathing room moving ahead, so fantasy managers should continue to give him a few more chances to turn things around before even considering benching him.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried the ball 16 times for 46 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Mixon also caught all four of his targeted passes for 40 yards.
Fantasy Spin: After averaging 3.6 yards per rush in the opener, Mixon saw that number drop to 2.9 against the Browns. At least this week he was able to supplement that with 40 yards receiving, bringing his total up to a more respectable 86. Clearly the Bengals would prefer better balance offensively, but the game situation dictated that Joe Burrow drop back most of the time Thursday night. The better Burrow plays, the more things will open up for Mixon, who should continue to carry RB2/RB3 value going forward.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was undoubtedly one of the biggest flops in Week 1 against the Chargers as he finished with just 69 yards off of 19 carries for a miserable 2.0 YPC. He also underwhelmed catching passes out of the backfield by hauling in just one catch for two yards. Thanks in part to a lack of a familiar rapport with rookie quarterback Joe Burrow and the atrocious play of the team's offensive line, Mixon got off to a rough start to the 2020 campaign. Nonetheless, his fantasy outlook for the remainder of the year is still favorable, and has a strong chance of getting back on track against a Browns Defense that got slaughtered by the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. Fantasy managers should keep Mixon classified as a must-start in all formats on Thursday night.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried the ball 19 times for 69 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1. He had one catch for two yards as well.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon averaged 3.6 yards on his 19 carries, which wasn't terrible given the amount of attention he received. He had a critical fumble in the fourth quarter, however, that helped give LA a lead they never relinquished. While Joe Burrow had his moments Sunday, teams are still going to focus on stopping Mixon in the weeks ahead.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon ran for 69 yards off 19 carries during the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He also added a catch for two yards. The former Sooner couldn't get any momentum on Sunday, as evidenced by his shoddy 2.0 YPC, which could be blamed partially on the offensive line's horrendous play. Mixon still has high expectations, especially from the fantasy managers who reached for him earlier than his ADP in drafts over the past few months. Still, he will need to make plays without much assistance from the offensive line if he hopes to succeed in 2020. Next up for Mixon and company will be the Browns, with the 24-year-old racking up 608 yards and four scores throughout six meetings with Cleveland throughout his career.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon does not have an injury designation heading into Week 1's clash against the Chargers. The back had been dealing with migraines during training camp, but is now going to play. With a new contract under his belt, Mixon will look to continue his NFL rise. He is a solid RB1 for Week 1 as he could take on more carries with QB Joe Burrow still being a rookie in his first game.
Updating a previous story, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon's four-year, $48-million contract extension includes a $10 million signing bonus and $1.3 million in base salary in 2020. He'll earn $8 million in base salary in 2021 and 2022, $9.4 million in 2023 and has a team option for $9.6 million in 2024.
The Cincinnati Bengals and running back Joe Mixon are reportedly finalizing a four-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2024 season. Mixon had been angling for a new contract throughout the offseason and even threatened to hold out if he didn't get a new deal with the team. Now he can prepare to slide back in as the team's bell-cow back in what should be a much-improved Cincinnati offense. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the deal will be for $48 million. Mixon has been sidelined at practice over the past week but that issue doesn't threaten to keep him out of action long-term. The talented running back is safe to draft towards the end of the first round in fantasy drafts this weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is reportedly closing in on a four-year contract extension to remain with the team, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
After missing practice last week, Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon remains day to day as the season remains less than two weeks away, according to a report by Bengals.com. The RB was said to be dealing with migraine headaches. Nevertheless, the Bengals back appeared at practice on Sunday, finally. He didn't dress up for practice but did some of his own work. Right now, there is no indication on whether Mixon will miss Week 1, though it was encouraging to see him just show up to practice on Sunday. The 24-year-old is the RB1 on Cincy and is coming off two 1,100+ yard rushing seasons. Though him missing practices is concerning, he still remains a back-end RB1.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (migraines) is out of practice again Friday, Aug. 28.
Fantasy Spin: There is still no reason for concern yet, and it may be a good thing for his wear and tear to take fewer reps. He remains a solid RB1 in fantasy.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon is still not practicing on Friday. According to the team, Mixon is dealing with a "minor injury" which is causing him to be sidelined. The mystery surrounding Mixon gets cloudier by the day. Earlier in the week, Mixon was reportedly dealing with migraines which were preventing him from practicing. It is unclear whether the "minor injury" alluded to by the team on Friday is something different from the migraine issue or not. Add in the fact that Mixon has been campaigning for a long-term deal and it was rumored back in April that he was considering a holdout if a new deal isn't signed. The uncertainty surrounding Mixon makes him a boom/bust selection in the early rounds of fantasy drafts this weekend.
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been dealing with migraines and hasn't practiced in recent days, according to a source. There is optimism that he'll be back at practice soon. Contract talks with Mixon are ongoing, and some speculated that Mixon's absence on the field was related to a contract holdout. That isn't the case after all, but Mixon should be just fine for Week 1 as the team's starting running back. Some fantasy owners might be down on the 24-year-old just because he's on the Bengals, but Mixon has been quite productive and Cincinnati's offense could be surprisingly effective with rookie QB Joe Mixon running the show now. He remains in the RB1 mix.
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (migraines) has been absent from practice due to migraines, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: It shouldn't be a lingering issue for the RB1 in fantasy.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was absent from Wednesday's practice, prompting concerns that the 24-year-old could be preparing to hold out. Mixon was at Monday's practice, though he sat out with a minor injury, so his complete absence on Wednesday is definitely a concern. We shouldn't just assume that Mixon is holding out for a contract extension, but we shouldn't rule the possibility out either, as his contract situation has been a glaring concern for months now. Mixon's still a late first round fantasy pick due to his talent, but some fantasy managers might be scared off of him a little bit now, which is understandable.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon has missed the last few practices because of an undisclosed injury, so fantasy players can monitor the situation. Mixon will receive most of the carries in the running game and may also be more involved in the passing game this season. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 24, because of a minor injury.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Mixon may be sidelined. He should receive a lot of carries each game and could also be more involved in the passing game. He should be a solid No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon 'could be as well-positioned as Christian McCaffrey was a year ago to explode,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. According to La Canfora, head coach Zac Taylor 'truly began to understand and appreciate' Mixon's ability over the second half of last season and intends to lean on him heavily in 2020.
Fantasy Spin: This is obviously music to the ears of current fantasy owners of Mixon, whose talent has never been in question. Whether he is set up to be this year's McCaffrey is another story, but he is only one season removed from leading the AFC in rushing and has been generally been underutilized as a receiver for most of his pro career. Fantasy owners should not hesitate to select Mixon at the 1-2 turn of most drafts.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon may receive a bigger role in the passing game this season, according to offensive coordinator Brian Callahan.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon will see plenty of carries in the running game but may be a popular target for Joe Burrow out of the backfield. Mixon should already be considered a starting running back in all fantasy leagues but more catches would increase his value.
