Joe Mixon 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Joe Mixon hasn’t done much to merit his high ADP this season, but the volume has been there. He’s off to a very familiar start, with only 27 points through three games again and no touchdowns in 2020. However, he’s had at least 19 touches in every game thus far, putting him on pace for 315 total. The touchdowns will come and he will continue to get stronger as the season goes; last season, he averaged 27 touches a game during the last four games, with 5 touchdowns in the last eight games. Owners won’t be willing to part with Mixon for just anything, but send an offer and try to find a middle ground. If you need an RB1 for the price of an RB2, then ok no further than Mixon.

 

This is something i found  while looking for positive Mixon news. Hope he's right.

His lack of use in the passing game, is the most mystifying of Mixon's issues.  The only thing Gio has on JM, is that he's shorter.  I know that's not really a benefit, but was all I could come up with.

Exactly, his lack of use in the passing game is the concern. We all know how bad Cincy's O-line is, but then not involving him in the passing game is mind-boggling. In PPR that's the frustration. He's not even getting that part of the offense, regardless of his lack of rushing yardage. Burrow is being hurried, yet Mixon is not getting the ball. It's just all kinds of weird.

Can't bench him this week but I'm further demoting him from the RB2 to the Flex spot to light a fire under his a** (even though the lack of production isn't his fault).

This just reminds me of the year mike McCarthy didn’t want to give Aaron jones the ball.

It’s sad they have invested so little into the O line and play calling is so trash

It's almost like you have to sit him for the first 4-5 games of the season then start him when they realize "oh yeah, we have one of the top RBs in the league. We should use him"

Mixon is easily a Top 5/10 RB talent wise 

 

 

Bill Belichick said Mixon was the best running back in the league last year when he faced the Patriots.

Lmao no

Gaskin 39 points, #22 ranked ppr RB

Mixon 27 points, #38 ranked ppr RB

 

And then you have to factor in the opportunity cost of making such a terrible early round decision on selecting Mixon.

  1. Mixon certainly ain't cooking right now but anyone who seriously thinks Myles Gaskin is more talented than him is insane

Good article...but wondering why he talked about the fantasy playoffs starting in week 11 or 12. Lol. 

 

Maybe he meant to say a good run into the fantasy playoffs? Like if you were on the fringe of not making it, it could give you a boost?

Guess you'll be in for a rude awakening when you realize that "talent" isn't one of your scoring categories!

I thought about that, but that’s not what he wrote. 

”Looking further into it, Mixon will end the fantasy regular season with a game against Washington or New York (depending on your league's schedule) and then begin the fantasy playoffs with games against New York, Miami, and Dallas (again, depending on your league's schedule). Obviously, a lot can change with injury and performance of those defenses over time, but, if you're confident that your team can make the postseason, Mixon could be a strong contributor for you in Weeks 11-14.“ 

The Bengals play Washington in week 11 and NYG in week 12...Miami in week 13 and Dallas in week 14.

OL blows but you can adjust your play calling to compensate. The problem is in the NFL there are way too many idiots coaching at a level 10 pay grades above their abilities.

One of the most blatant examples in NFL history: Case in point, 2007 Frank Gore. The team had just lost their 7th straight game. Gore was a stud but completely misused. Runs up the gut, few passes to him. The idiot OC at that time was Jim Hostler. BTW, he was the passing game coordinator in 2018 for the Packers. Yeah, they sucked. Anyway, the team called in a previous coach (retired, living in AZ) to see if he could teach this bum how to make a game plan. End result was Gore went 21-216-2 TDs and 11-98 receiving and they beat the SB bound Cardinals. Try to guess what happened after the guy went back home.

This type of suckage is rampant in the NFL. A properly run bootleg is an easy score for a QB. You never see it anymore.

That’s what happens when you hire Sean McVay’s poolboy

This is where they are losing sight of things. Talent don't mean anything when the line is trash. Being better in real life doesn't always translate to fantasy points
