Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon broke 61 tackles in 2019, making him one of four backs last season and one of seven backs since 2015 to top 60 in a single season.
Huddle Up: Once the Bengals committed to feeding Mixon in Week 8, his season really took off. From that point on until the end of the season, he ranked third in the league with 883 rushing yards. While it is entirely possible Cincinnati takes it easy on him early again in 2020, the returns of left tackle Jonah Williams and receiver A.J. Green should go a long way to helping him enjoy a career year. Mixon should be a strong RB1 option in fantasy this season.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is 'the type of guy you want to lock up to a long-term deal,' according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a workhorse back for the Bengals the last two years, and his role isn't going to change in 2020. He should be a low-end RB1 in standard formats regardless of his contract situation, but an extension would bolster Mixon's value in dynasty leagues a bit.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is the only NFL running back with 500-plus carries and no fumbles since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Mixon had a stellar second half last season to finish as fantasy's 12th-ranked running back. Avoiding negative-two-point fumbles only helps the cause, and look for him to finish a little higher in the RB1 ranks with a better offensive supporting cast this season.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon forced a broken tackle once every 11.6 carries in 2019 (24 on 278 rushing attempts) after doing so only once every 39.5 carries in 2018 (six on 237 rushing attempts).

The Cincinnati Bengals are interested in signing RB Joe Mixon to a contract extension, although continuing discussions about a possible new collective bargaining agreement have stalled negotiations. He is entering the final year of his current contract.
Huddle Up: Mixon, who will turn 24 in July, rushed for 1,137 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground in 2019, along with 35 catches for 287 yards and three receiving touchdowns. He should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option for next season's fantasy drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 21 times for just 50 yards in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins while adding two grabs for 23 yards.
Huddle Up: Mixon was disappointing in what should have been a favorable fantasy matchup, but instead it was the passing game that shined through instead. Mixon will look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) is active for the team's Week 16 game, but his role is uncertain since he has been dealing with an illness, according to Bengals.com's Marisa Contipelli.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been playing well over the last few weeks but may be a risky option since he may not receive his normal workload. He probably should still be a starting option in leagues, but fantasy players could consider other options if available.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon has rushed for 136 yards and a 146 yards, respectively, in his last two games. He faces the Miami Dolphins in Week 16, and the Dolphins are allowing the second-most rushing yards per game this season.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a different back in the second half of the season, and he has run for at least 79 yards in five of his last six games. He will have RB1 upside against one of the worst run defenses in the league.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and will carry no injury designation into Week 16.
Huddle Up: After averaging 23.8 touches per game over his last six outings and topping 100 rushing yards three times in that span, Mixon has been an RB1 over the season's second half and is a no-doubt starter Sunday in Miami.
