News: 3 days agoMixon rushed 19 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns and brought in six of seven targets for 49 yards in the Bengals' 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars on Monday night.
Spin: Mixon was instrumental in the Bengals' upset, recording six- and two-yard touchdown runs in the first half to help forge a 14-14 tie going into halftime. The versatile veteran also was a distant second in reception and receiving yards to Ja'Marr Chase on the night, and his totals in both categories were season highs. Mixon should continue to be heavily involved as both a runner and receiver as Cincinnati aims to continue giving fill-in quarterback Jake Browning plenty of support in a Week 14 home matchup versus the Colts.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mixon is back for his seventh season in Cincinnati. The 2017 second-round pick's rushing volume and efficiency (3.9 YPC, career-worst 1.7 YAC) slipped a bit last season, but that was covered up by a big role near the goal line and career-high marks in targets, receptions and receiving yards. Mixon finished the season top 10 in fantasy PPG for the third consecutive season, but he missed three games due to injury and has now produced one full season in his career (2019). He also saw his snap share plummet from 73% to 53% once back from the injury. Of course. the 27-year-old benefits from an elite Bengals offense and he has minimal competition for touches following the departure of Samaje Perine. Mixon is best viewed as a good RB2.
