After topping 1,400 scrimmage yards in back-to-back seasons, Joe Mixon only played six games in a disappointing 2020 season. Mixon will return to a Cincinnati offense that is the best on-paper unit that he has played with to this point in his career. In addition to benefiting from an improved offensive environment, Mixon could see far more route running opportunities with passing-down stalwart Giovani Bernard no longer on the roster.
Still just 25 years old and under contract through the 2024 season, Mixon remains a clear top-12 RB pick for Dynasty startup draft purposes. Could he push even higher than that in 2021 with an expanded role on passing downs?
