Bench Mixon until he performs well?!?

Recommended Posts

I’m sick of Mixon. He’s almost costed me all 3 games. My bench RB options are Dobbins, Kelley, Freeman, & Edmonds. Do I bench Mixon until the Bengals can prove their OL can run block? It’s ridiculous!!

I'm with you. I'm lucky enough to have Mixon as an extra where I haven't depended on him for a win, but still super frustrated with him. Don't have a strong enough bench to switch him out so I need to play him. Once he actually costs me a game he's out 🤦‍♀️

It’s so frustrating. Not good enough to start, not bad enough to bench. It’s the worst scenario ever. Can’t trade him for anything worth his ADP. I’m stuck!!

I understand the frustration with him, I had him last year and he did this for like the first 8 games but picked it up after that. Check out his game log from last year, not saying the same goes for this season but hopefully things get better with him.

Yeah I looked at it before drafting him. One of the reasons I was high on him. The OL changed (badly), & apparently Joe Burrow is Mahomes so Mixon barely sees the ball in the red zone. Don’t know what to do w/ him

If you are fortunate enough to have 2 rbs, 2 wrs and a flex to play over him then bench him for sure.   Not everyone has that luxury.

 

I don't have him in 1 league so im thankful for that.....for now.  He could get jump started soon but teams are stacking the box with the rookie qb

I don't know why anyone would ever draft him. I always stood clear of him hes trash. Your only problem is you don't have any better to start in his place. So until you do your gonna have to keep playing him

I ignored my better judgment and drafted him. Every time I draft someone I don't like that much bc they are higher ranked I regret it.  I am not sure there will be improvement. His schedule is horrible and his OL is awful, they don't give him nearly enough goal line opportunities or catches.  I al considering benching him depending on who I have available.
