Joe Mixon's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Joe Mixon to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 145 projected fantasy points puts him at #21 behind David Montgomery and ahead of Sony Michel. He has averaged 12.8 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.3 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#22) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #20 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Joe Mixon is expected to come up short of last season's #9 fantasy position rank.

JOE MIXON WEEK 3 AND 4 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Joe Mixon is projected for 9.8 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #22 ranked running back and a starter for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Raheem Mostert but behind Devin Singletary. His projected rank in Week 4 is the same as it is in Week 3. He is projected for 9.5 fantasy points.

JOE MIXON IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6.5K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.5K

He is projected for 11.2 FanDuel points and 13.2 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$267 short of $6.5K on FanDuel and -$62 short of $5.5K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
