Draft note
by John Paulsen
Mixon finished No. 13 and No. 10 the last two years (PPR), but he’s one of a handful of running backs guaranteed to have an 18-plus touch workload when healthy. The addition of Joe Burrow and Tee Higgins, and the return of A.J. Green should provide more scoring opportunities for Mixon in 2020.

CIN RB Joe Mixon - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Joe Mixon is one of the few three-down backs in the NFL for 2020 so his fantasy value is sky-high. With back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with a minimum of 237 carries, Mixon has established himself as a major component of the Bengals offense. These numbers are even more impressive considering the offense has struggled overall especially at the quarterback position last season. Rookie QB Joe Burrow will run the offense from Day 1 and has shown he has a boatload of talent. If that translates over to the NFL right away, Mixon could push himself into the top-five running backs.

Fantasy Downside
Mixon's carries went up last season, but his yardage, receptions and touchdowns were less than 2018. It may be nothing, but it's worth noting. Mixon has also been talking contract with the Bengals and that could throw a curveball into the season if they don't come to a deal. He has publically stated he could hold out. If he plays, one negative factor could be Burrow. If he struggles with the offense, that could directly affect Mixon.

2020 Bottom Line
Mixon is a strong RB1 for the 2020 season. Expect around 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns which would be slightly higher than last year. We also expect more touches in the passing game. There is little doubt that Mixon is a first-round draft pick in all leagues and formats. He is the sixth-ranked running back and that's about where he is being drafted. Mixon is definitely a player you can build your fantasy team around.
