Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will look for his first rushing touchdown of the year in Week 11 against the Raiders. Mixon had his best performance of the season last Sunday during the loss to the Ravens by compiling a season-high 30 attempts for 114 yards. While the 23-year-old has three touchdowns through the air in 2019, he potentially has his best chance to score on the ground against Oakland as Cincy will likely go run-heavy with rookie quarterback Ryan Finley under center. He is a must-start in deeper formats.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon had his best performance of the season during the 49-13 loss to Baltimore on Sunday. Mixon rushed for 114 yards on 30 attempts, both season-highs, while also accumulating 37 yards through the air off of two receptions (three targets). Though he has yet to find the end zone, his level of participation in this one was a step in the right direction for the fantasy managers who have struggled with him in their lineups. With rookie quarterback Ryan Finley still getting his footing, the 23-year-old will likely continue to be heavily involved moving ahead, with his next chance to score a rushing touchdown coming in Week 11 in Oakland.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 30 times for a season-high 114 yards in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two receptions for 37 yards on three targets.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon posted his first 100-yard game of the season, although he continues to look for that elusive first rushing score. The yardage total was his most since Dec. 16, 2018 against the Oakland Raiders, which is when he had his last rushing touchdowns. The Bengals are back at it in Week 11 at Oakland, and he remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option for that one.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has yet to run in a touchdown in 2019. Though he has three scores through the air on the year, he continues to disappoint while playing behind arguably the worst offensive line in the league. With A.J. Green (ankle) still out of the equation, the pressure will be on the 23-year-old to produce for a team that will also have a new quarterback, Ryan Finley, under center against the Ravens. The upside has always been there, but Mixon is only worth a start in any format if you have no other options in Week 10.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 17 times for 66 yards in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams in London and he added four grabs for 11 yards and a score on four targets.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon has yet to find the end zone on the ground through eight games, but he has back-to-back games with receiving scores, and three touchdowns overall. He remains a decent RB2 or flex fantasy option in Week 10 once the team is back from a bye.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed for 66 yards on 17 attempts to go along with four catches for 11 yards and a score during the loss to the Rams in London. While he is still without a rushing touchdown on the year, the 23-year-old was able to find the end zone through the air for the second week in a row. After rushing for just two yards in Week 7, this was a step in the right direction for Mixon, who was also able to average an acceptable 3.9 yards per carry despite playing behind a banged-up offensive line. With Cincy heading into the bye, Mixon will look to keep it going against the Ravens at home in Week 10.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been a massive disappointment in 2019. Without a rushing touchdown to his credit thus far, Mixon has also underwhelmed by accumulating just 254 yards for a horrendous three yards per carry throughout seven games. Though the Rams haven't had the most success against the run this season, Mixon hasn't demonstrated anything to suggest that he should remain a starter in any fantasy format either. However, if you need someone to get you through a bye week or to come in for injury relief, the upside is there, but fantasy managers should expect the worst in Week 8.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed for just two yards on 10 attempts against the Jaguars on Sunday. While he was able to bring in a two-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Andy Dalton, it was a disappointing outing overall for those who were hoping for a turnaround in Week 7. With the Bengals unable to get anything going behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, Mixon's outlook moving forward doesn't look promising, especially in Week 8 against the Rams Defense.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon ran 10 times for just two yards in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars while adding a two-yard touchdown on his only reception.
Fantasy Spin: The touchdown was at least something for fantasy owners, as the yardage total was ugly with a capital U. You're not going to run much when you're winless, so that isn't good for his fantasy prospects, either. The Bengals search for their first win in London in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Bengals' RB Joe Mixon averaged a dreadful 0.2 yards per carry on 10 attempts in Sunday's loss against the Jaguars.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will look to get on track in Week 7 against the Jaguars. The 23-year-old has been a colossal disappointment this season, rushing for only 252 yards on 74 attempts in addition to 97 yards off of 14 catches, with his only touchdown of the season coming through the air during the Week 3 matchup against Buffalo. With a weak offensive line along with limited options on the receiving end, opposing defenses continue to keep Mixon in check. Don't expect anything different on Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed eight times for 10 yards in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two receptions for 29 yards on three targets.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon has zero 100-yard rushing performances or scores on the ground through six games, while finding the end zone only once through the air. He remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was virtually lifeless in the loss to the Ravens on Sunday. After rushing for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries, things appeared to be trending in the right direction for the 23-year-old. However, after finishing with just 10 yards on eight attempts while scrounging up a few receptions, fantasy managers were left disappointed once again. With the team struggling, Mixon continues to get no support from the weak Bengals offensive line. He will try to get on track against the Jaguars in Week 7, but at this point, don't hold your breath.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon had his best performance of the year in Week 5 against Arizona, finishing with a season-high 93 yards on 19 touches. While this was an encouraging sign for the 23-year-old, he still remains without a rushing touchdown. The Ravens Defense has allowed a league-worst seven rushing touchdowns in 2019, but have offset that number by allowing just 90.2 yards per game to opposing runners. Mixon continues to play behind a horrendous offensive line, and unless you have nowhere else to turn, he should be benched until he starts producing.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon recorded a season-high 93 yards off of 19 carries in the loss to Arizona on Sunday. After rushing for 62 yards in Week 4, the third-year man was able to get a little something going against a weak Cardinals Defense. Things will get much more difficult for Mixon in Week 6, however, when the Bengals take on Baltimore, with the Ravens Defense allowing just 93.5 yards to opposing backs so far in 2019.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 19 times for 93 yards in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals while adding a 16-yard reception on his only target.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game this season, and he hasn't even run for a score in five games. However, his rushing totals have been improving each game, and this was a high in terms of scrimmage yards. He'll look to keep improving in Week 6 at Baltimore. He remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will look to get it going on Sunday against Arizona. Playing behind an offensive line that allowed eight sacks to the Steelers in Week 5, the 23-year-old will attempt to gain his first rushing touchdown of the year in addition to improving on his mediocre 3.2 yards per carry. The Cardinals Defense has some work to do, but Mixon will need to do more in Week 5 to convince fantasy managers that he was worth an early-round draft pick. He is a must-start in virtually all formats, nonetheless, but time is running out for Mixon to make some waves in 2019.
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 15 times for 62 yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while registering four catches for just one yard.
Fantasy Spin: Mixon was busy, but he wasn't going anywhere with the Steelers defense flying around and shutting down the run and the pass. He and the Bengals will look for better results in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried 15 times for 62 yards (4.1 YPC) and hauled in 4-of-5 targets for one yard in Monday's 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bengals offense had a really tough night as they were only able to generate 175 total yards and were forced to punt five times. The offensive line, in particular, continues to be a glaring weakness for the team. Mixon is averaging just 2.7 yards per carry and has only one touchdown in 2019, though he has shown improvement by putting up double-digit fantasy totals the past two weeks. Mixon should be viewed as a middle-tier RB2 heading into Week 5's exploitable matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon is off to an extremely slow start in 2019, but he should bounce back against the Steelers in Week 4. Through the first three games of the season, the Steelers have given up the fourth most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Opposing running backs have been gaining 128.3 yards per game rushing and 70.3 yards per game receiving against the Steelers, while Pittsburgh is surrendering one rushing touchdown a week. Whether he does it on the ground or in the passing game, Mixon should have a nice Week 4 and should be in your fantasy lineups as a high-end RB2.
