Burned too many times? Yates is willing to take the plunge again. What are you expecting from Mixon in 2021?
As a general rule, I downgrade all Bengals just because they have been so bad for so long. As for Mixon, add the injury whammy to his record, and he drops even further.
Barring injury, Mixon will be a RB1 this season. I believe they use him as more of a workhorse and get him more involved in the passing game, especially with Gio gone. I’ve been big on Mixon and he’s a bit of a steal because many are lower than they should be on him. It’s good to note that while they didn’t take OT Sewell in the draft, they did make some moves to improve their offensive line.
