Joe Mixon 2020 Outlook

This guy could literally put up top 5 numbers with a simple tweak of the offensive gameplan. Put in some screens and start using him as a dump off/safety blanket on all 3 downs. Poof!

They did that on one drive this season, game against the Browns.  It worked great, he looked electric in the open space, picking up chunks of yards.  They eventually scored a TD to finish the drive.  Sadly, that's the only time we've seen him involved like that in the passing game.

You would think that everyone would learn. This guy has been producing these kind of numbers for a few straight seasons now. He’s either really underwhelming or injured. By now, he should be on everyone’s do not draft list.

It’s really tough to sit your first or second round pick especially this early in the season but I’m interested to know who people are considering benching him for this week? RBs only, don’t care for Flex options..

Thought I was in the Kenyan Drake thread.

 

I'll see myself out.

I was going to replace him with JRob1inson, then he ended up replacing Saquon...now I am thinking of playing Henderson over Mixon this week.

Im thinking of doing the same with Henderson. I have no clue why the so called experts have Mixon ahead of Henderson this week. It is truly baffling

The oline sucks, the Bengals are usually playing from behind, and hes not getting enough targets to make up for it

Offensive. Line. 

Wasn’t the O-line bad last year? Confused why we’re not getting the Mixon we saw at the end of last season.

This feels like the week everyone benches him and he puts up a solid score. If Gaskin can run on the Jags anyone should be able to.

Gaskin is way better than Mixon

It was, but it seems worse this year...which is totally inexplicable. I can’t remember watching a worse NFL OL.

Better utilized? Sure. Better RB? I can’t get behind that.

Hot take! You mean situation wise or talent wise?

I mean... 1400+ scrimm yards back to back years and the offense got a much better QB and two receivers. Probably slept too much on the OLine hence the 10,000 posts but still.. I'll be shocked if he doesn't get up to 1200+ this year even with this start. And 1400 wouldn't shock me considering last year and how much things change week to week in the NFL. Talent rises.

Mixon is easily a Top 5/10 RB talent wise, however, he’s on a terrible team, with a terrible OL, with terrible clueless coaches in a terrible organization that don’t know wtf they’re doing. 
 

If he were on any other team where could bellcow and ball he would be top 3 drafted every year like Zeke.  Strength, power, catching, he’s got it all.  
 

Gaskins 🤣

 

All is Mixon owners are wondering why he isn’t performing like the end of last year.  That’s what we expected, in fact, that’s what was talked about BY CINCY in preseason.  Seems like the coaches have gone back to early season 2019 mentality.  Not using him for dump offs, not using him for short passes in space, and bringing in Gio B for 3rd downs, hurry up, etc. Not using him the way they were to end the season. It makes no sense.  NONE.  And they just paid him!  Paid him to sideline while Gio freaking Bernard gets good touches.  
 

Someone posted a vid comparing Gio runs to Mixon from the Browns game and it was hilariously night and day.  That drive that someone else mentioned where Mixon was catching, and plowing over guys, and getting chunks, was beautiful.  He was just mashing the D and taking over.  Resulted in a TD > and they never attempted another drive like that. That’s game, or since  👏 Makes 👏 No 👏 Sense 

Couldn’t have said it any better. It’s typical, a inept organization, paid this man to be their future and feature! Then in-game situations, they trot out Gio and pull the guy they just handed money too. Everybody on twitter and watching the game can see Mixon is light years ahead of Bernard. It really hurts my head.
 

Also Seeing Mixon get this extension before my drafts really gave me confidence to draft him whenever I could, but this is just crazy. I have my fair shares of Mixon so I am bias, but as a football fan it makes you wonder.

It really is puzzling.  Especially when you have a bad OL and a rookie QB who is the future of your team.  You would think they would feature a star RB more to also take the pressure off Burrow.

Maybe someone will wake up this week and realize they probably shouldn't let Burrow get sacked 8 times and they'll work harder to #EstablishTheRun

I remember seeing a stat that said Mixon has one of the highest yards after contact in the league.

 

the problem is that the contact is being made behind the LOS because cincy didnt want to put any big money into the worst o-line in the league last year.

He’s gonna get killed and his career shortened.  Saw it with my Colts and Andrew Luck.  By the time they fixed it it was too late. Damage done.

He’s going to get better. Will he live up to where he was drafted? Probably not. He’s going to have some big games with stinkers mixed in.

I've watched every game Bengals game.  Worst Offensive line I have ever had to witness.  Every play within seconds someone is in the backfield.  The offensive line is so bad now Burrow is in shotgun basically from start to finish.  It can be 1st and goal from the one and even the coaches are even scared to run the ball.  Mixon isn't as efficient having to take handoffs in all these shotgun sets. On the Flip side, I may be in denial.   Mixon is still getting around 18 carries a game. Keep telling myself things are going to turn around.  The line will get better chemistry as time goes on.   Helllllooooo!  It's week 4.   It can't get any worse though.  That's the best part.  But I think we have hit Bottom as far as points per game go.  If I didn't own him.  He would be my #1 Buy low target.  When people panic. I buy...How the stock market works.  No different here.
