Week 11 at Baltimore Ravens
Joe Mixon's touches dipped on Sunday to 13 which was a result of a poor performance by the Bengals offense. He still ended up with 85 yards from scrimmage and averaged 5.5 yards per carry. It just was a tough day for Cincy overall and that limited Mixon's ability to impact the game. Mixon has been limited in practice this week with a knee injury but is expected to play.
Mixon will face the Ravens for the second time this season. In the first meeting, he had 22 touches for 87 yards. Baltimore is currently ranked first in aFPA to running backs. The Bengals need to get Mixon the ball more than last week. But even if they do, it will be a tough game for him. Start him but only as a high-end RB2 for Week 11.
