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.
