View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Mixon delivered his best fantasy season to date last year, finishing 4th among PPR backs and tied for 6th in points per game. He also checked in 4th in points per game in both half-PPR and non-PPR. His previous highs came in 2018, when Mixon ranked 10th among RBs in total PPR points and 9th in points per game.
  • Mixon’s underlying metrics were merely solid. Among 61 RBs with at least 70 rushing attempts, he ranked 23rd in yards after contact per attempt, according to Pro Football Focus. That marked a rebound from 2020 (3.03 vs. 2.55) but came up short of his 2019 rate (3.15).
  • Mixon ranked just 40th among the same group in PFF’s elusive rating, which seeks to measure the performance of a runner “independently of the blocking.”
  • Football Outsiders rated him 32nd in DVOA and 24th in DYAR – their 2 main rushing-efficiency metrics – among 50 qualifying RBs.
  • Cincinnati’s O-line delivered a roughly average-level performance, ranking 15th in FO’s adjusted line yards and 20th in PFF’s run-blocking grade. That marked an improvement over 2020, when the Bengals finished 31st and 21st, respectively.
  • The team has sought to improve the line further this offseason. Cincinnati signed T La’el Collins and G Alex Cappa in free agency. PFF graded Collins 3rd-best in run-blocking among OTs last year. Cappa checked in 39th among 135 graded guards, 2 spots behind Bengals G Quinton Spain (whom he’s expected to replace at RG) but well ahead of the other 3 Cincinnati guards who played meaningful snaps.
  • Mixon ranked 2nd in the league in carry share in 2021. His 67% share of Bengals rushing attempts trailed only Najee Harris (74.7%) and edged Jonathan Taylor (66.5%), despite Mixon sitting out the regular-season finale and being limited in several others while managing an ankle sprain.
  • The Bengals threw him the ball more as the games got more important: Mixon drew just 7.7% target share through Week 15. From Week 16 through the playoffs, however, he garnered 15.3%.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Mixon has been a favorite draft value of ours for a couple of years now, and he still looks capable of outperforming his current RB7 ADP in FFPC best-ball drafting. The advanced metrics say that Mixon isn’t the world’s greatest runner … but that almost doesn’t matter. The Bengals clearly love what he does. They made him 1 of the NFL’s most workhorse-iest ball-carriers last year. And then the playoffs found him targeted at a rate that would have ranked among the top at the position. If that trend continues into 2022, then Mixon has upside all the way to #1 among RBs – especially in an offense that ranked 7th in scoring last season and should be ascending.

Charges against Mixon dismissed ... for now

The misdemeanor menacing charge against Bengals RB Joe Mixon was dismissed by a judge on Friday, at the request of the prosecution. But the prosecution reserves the right to re-file the case after additional investigation. The legal side of this story isn't over yet. And the NFL can discipline Mixon even if he isn't legally found guilty. That has Mixon's 2023 and dynasty value in limbo for now. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon is being charged with "aggravated menacing" for an incident that allegedly occurred in downtown Cincinnati the day before the Divisional Round game against the Bills. Mixon is accused of pointing a gun at a woman and saying, "You should be popped in the face, I should shoot you, the police can't get me." NFL Network's Tom Pelissero spoke Thursday night with Mixon's agent, who claims the charge will be dropped on Friday. We'll keep you updated on the situation. Remember that Mixon entered the NFL with red flags after he was caught on camera punching a woman at a restaurant in 2014.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 20 times for 105 yards and 1 score in Sunday’s win over Buffalo. So much for Cincy’s banged up O-line. Playing with backups, Mixon posted his best YPC average since Week 14. The 100-yard outing also marked the most from a postseason Bengal since Cedric Benson in 2010. Next comes a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship game, again in Kansas City.

Bengals LT Jonah Williams dislocated his left kneecap in Sunday night's win over the Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. HC Zac Taylor called Williams' status "week to week" on Monday. That suggests the LT will have trouble getting back in time for Sunday's game at Buffalo -- but that he has a chance to return if Cincinnati continues to advance. Reserve G Jackson Carman filled in against Baltimore after Williams went down. QB Joe Burrow still drew pressure on just 28.2% of his dropbacks for the game, according to Pro Football Focus, the 4th lowest rate among the 10 starting QBs so far in these playoffs.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon mustered only 39 yards on 11 carries in Sunday’s win over Baltimore. He’s now been held to only 1 TD over his past 6 outings. Mixon at least remained a key part of the passing game, racking up 3+ catches for the 14th time (in 15 games) this season. The Bengals now travel to Buffalo for the Divisional Round. The Bills have allowed 4.3 YPC to opposing RBs this season.

Dynasty Write-up
Mixon posted a career-best fantasy finish in 2021, then encountered a 2022 headlined by wildly inconsistent play. His supporting cast remains top notch, and Mixon is still only 27 (in July). But it’s very likely that we’ve seen the best from a guy already entering year 7.
