2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Poor line play, and a mysterious sprained foot that cost him 10 games combined to torpedo Mixon's fantasy season in 2020. Other than the destruction of the Jaguars in Week 4, Mixon struggled to make plays in the ground or passing game. Rather than spend any more time trying to dissect a lost season, let's look forward to what we get in 2021.

There is a TON to like about Mixon this season. With the release of Giovani Bernard, Mixon becomes the true undisputed workhorse of this offense. The Bengals added nothing to the running back room in the offseason, so they really must have faith in Mixon's health. With Burrow and the trio of receivers, he'll never face a stacked box, should benefit greatly from improved line play, and the ever elusive 3-down role (he was on pace for 56 receptions last year). I really can't find a single reason (beside health) why he can't return a top-10 season in any format. Talent, opportunity, and scheme fully align to give Mixon a shot at a career year. It's time for Mixon to play to the big contract extension he was given.

Joe Mixon in for a bellcow role?
Bengals RB missed 10 games in 2020
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 28, 11:00 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Assuming health, this will be the largest workload of Joe Mixon’s career. Tag an extra 15-20 receptions to his previous totals by virtue of Giovani Bernard being gone. You will see Samaje Perine give him a breather for maybe a series or two a game. I’d expect Chris Evans to earn a portion of the pass situation plays as the year progresses. But for the most part, this will be all about him. (The Athletic)

FFToday's Take: Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. believes Mixon is in for a bellcow type role this season, which has been the sentiment since the early off-season. Mixon missed 10 games last year with a foot injury but it's easy to see Cincinnati running a lot of 11 personnel with their three wide receivers, C.J. Uzomah at TE and Mixon in the backfield.
