Joe Mixon poised for great things in 2020?August 10, 2020 | 10:48 AM
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon 'could be as well-positioned as Christian McCaffrey was a year ago to explode,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. According to La Canfora, head coach Zac Taylor 'truly began to understand and appreciate' Mixon's ability over the second half of last season and intends to lean on him heavily in 2020.
Writer's Analysis: This is obviously music to the ears of current fantasy owners of Mixon, whose talent has never been in question. Whether he is set up to be this year's McCaffrey is another story, but he is only one season removed from leading the AFC in rushing and has been generally been underutilized as a receiver for most of his pro career. Fantasy owners should not hesitate to select Mixon at the 1-2 turn of most drafts.
