2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
It was a tale of two halves for Mixon in 2019. In Weeks 1-8, he limped to a 101-320-0 rushing line on a team that was 0-8 and going nowhere fast. The line was horrendous, and with teammates dropping like flies, Mixon quickly became the main threat on offense. This all makes his Weeks 10-17 that much more impressive. Coming out of the team's Week 9 bye, the Bengals gave Mixon a season high 32 touches, nearly doubling any single game total from earlier in the year. He would go on to rack up a 177-817-5 line during those final 8 games, finishing as one of the hottest fantasy players in the league.

As he enters his 4th year in the NFL, we know what Mixon brings to the table. He's the rare three-down workhorse back that is powerful, quick, and elusive. The offense around him is in line for a massive upgrade, as 2019 1st round tackle Jonah Williams, and veteran A.J. Green return healthy. With an improved offensive line and a more threatening passing game, Mixon should have much more space to operate. If this offense can gel, Mixon has a shot to repeat his efficiency numbers of 2018 when he rushed for nearly 5 yards-per-carry and caught 43 passes. He finished as a top-10 fantasy running back in that season, and should be poised to do it again.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bengals, Joe Mixon agree on four-year contract extension
Missed practices with migraines
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 1, 2:45 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals and RB Joe Mixon reached agreement on a four-year contract extension that ties him to Cincinnati for five more seasons, per source. Still going over language to finalize deal. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mixon is still just 24 years old heading into his fourth season in the league. He finished as the RB13 and RB10 the last two seasons in PPR leagues. He's missed some practice time recently with migraines, but a new contract is likely to cure those quickly.


Injury Joe Mixon missing practices
Dealing with migranes
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 27, 6:50 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals RB Joe Mixon - who hasn’t practiced in recent days and wasn’t spotted on the field Wednesday - has been dealing with migraines, source said. Optimism he’ll be back soon, with contract talks ongoing … (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: There is some skepticism that Mixon is using migraines as a way to hold out without actually holding out, but that's all it appears to be. The fourth-year back is well-positioned to enjoy a huge season in reality as well as fantasy with Joe Burrow pulling the trigger and a plethora of quality receivers capable of stretching the field. Assuming he can get his migranes under control, he should be well worth a pick at the end of the first round of fantasy drafts.
