Draft note
by John Paulsen
Prior to his injury in Week 6, Mixon was the No. 11 fantasy back (half-PPR) and was tied with Christian McCaffrey for the third-most touches per game (24.0). In 2019, he finished No. 13 after a No. 9 finish the year before. Mixon’s current RB12 ADP feels about right. Giovani Bernard is gone, so Mixon may pick up even more passing down snaps, which should raise his floor as a receiver. But Mixon was going to be a bellcow regardless of the presence of Bernard.

CIN RB Joe Mixon - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Chicago
It was an amazing day for running back Joe Mixon. He carried the ball 29 times and added four receptions for 33 touches. And the production was there as well. He had 150 total yads and scored a touchdown. There is no doubt a healthy Mixon will see more days like this in the terms of usage.

The Bengals running game will have a tough matchup this weekend against the Bears. Chicago is ranked 4th in aFPA to running backs after one week which isn't a surprise as they were considered one of the better run defenses in the NFL.

The touches along make Mixon a very valuable fantasy asset. Although he might get 30+ touches every game, you can expect 20-25. The matchup might affect his production slightly but he is still in good shape for Week 2 as a solid RB1.
