Draft note
by John Paulsen
From a workload standpoint, Mixon is one of the few obvious bellcow backs in the league. In 14 games last season, he averaged 20.0 touches for 104.5 yards and 0.64 touchdowns per game, giving him the No. 9 per game average in half-PPR formats. He’s a rock-solid pick at the end of the first round in 2019 fantasy drafts.

CIN RB Joe Mixon - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Seattle
Joe Mixon had a solid second season rushing for over 1,100 yards and becoming the full time starting running back for the Bengals. He is expected to carry even more of the load in 2019. The Bengals offense has question marks but Mixon isn't one of them.

The Week 1 matchup won't be easy for Cincy as they head to visit the 12th Man in Seattle. The Seahawks defense took a step back last season as they were 22nd in aFPA to running backs. Seattle took some steps in the offseason where they should be better.

Being on the road, no No. 1 receiver in A.J. Green, Mixon doesn't project to be an RB1 like he should most weeks. Expect about 20 touches and decent numbers for Week 1. Start him as a solid RB2 against Seattle.
