Depth Chart
Right here in this space last season I predicted the o-line could be a problem for Mixon's fantasy production, and that turned out to be an understatement. Not only did Mixon look sluggish at times, but the amount of times he ran into defensive brick walls was comical. His 3.5 yards-per-carry average was a sorry 41st among running backs. Despite the agonizingly slow production, he also got hit by the injury bug a few times, missing some snaps and two games with head and ankle injuries. To top it all off, Gio Bernard had little problem finding running room behind the same shoddy offensive line, so as a whole it was a rough debut season for the former Sooner.

With the bad news out of the way, let's take a look a few reasons why Mixon has a chance to climb into the RB1 conversation. First, it's easy to forget that he would have likely been the first running back off the board last season if not for his off the field issues, so the talent is there. Next, he's dedicated himself this offseason to getting leaner and faster, dropping 10 pounds. The coaching staff has thrown their own weight behind finally making Mixon the bell-cow on offense, and the additions to the o-line, while not earth shattering, have to be an improvement on the disaster from last season. The volume that didn't exist last year should be there, and if he can get over 4.0 yards-per-carry, he should be able to hit the 1,000 yard plateau. With a chance to catch 40+ passes, and goal-line work to himself, Mixon has the combination of workload and talent to make a leap in his second year. He's an ideal pick as a RB2, that if things align, could give you a few RB1 weeks.
