Joe Mixon's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is a better value on DrafKings than on FanDuel based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 14.6 FD points and is worth +$926 more than $7.8K on FD. On DK he is projected for 17.5 points and is worth +$989 more than $6.7K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Joe Mixon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 208 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Ezekiel Elliott and ahead of James Conner. He has averaged 14.31 fantasy points in his past 14 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 13 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #7 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Joe Mixon is expected to improve on last season's #9 fantasy position rank.

JOE MIXON WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Joe Mixon is projected for 13.2 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #5 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Leonard Fournette but behind Saquon Barkley. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#6). He is projected for 13.5 fantasy points.
