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 - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Joe Mixon had a break-out season in 2018 and is poised to be the workhorse again for Cincinnati. He rushed for 1,168 yards with eight touchdowns. He carried the ball 237 times and that’s missing two games with a knee injury. Mixon also had great ball security as he had zero fumbles in 2018. He has been a great pickup for the Bengals as he was a second-round draft pick because of issues off-the-field. But he has been clean as a professional.

Fantasy Downside

Mixon cannot be considered in the top tier of fantasy backs just yet because he is not as prominent in the passing game. He did catch 43 passes but we expect a lot of the third-down snaps to go to the veteran Gio Bernard. Also, be aware new head coach Zac Taylor was with the Rams in 2018 and saw what happened to Todd Gurley at the end of the season because of overuse. Taylor could be cautious with Mixon’s touches.

2019 Bottom Line

Expect Mixon to carry the ball more than anyone this upcoming season with the exception of Ezekiel Elliot. But the fact he will be limited in the passing game keeps his stock down slightly. He is definitely a top 10 fantasy running back and is deserving of an early second round selection (Current ADP is 2.02). The Bengals will give him the carries on first and second down and will spell him on third down with Bernard.
