Did you know that Joe Mixon has actually played more games than Dalvin Cook since they both came into the league in 2017? Yet somehow Mixon gets labeled as an injury risk every single season and Cook is being drafted as a top-3 pick this year. While Cook's production when he's on the field is certainly worthy of a top-3 pick - don't get me wrong - it goes to show the recency bias that comes into play for fantasy managers when they're on the clock. When Mixon is on the field, he's going to receive one of the heaviest workloads in the entire league. He's a top-5 talent at the RB position in the league and this offense is set to take a major jump in 2021 with Joe Burrow and his bevy of receiving weapons. If Mixon had been shut down immediately last season and put on IR when his injury occurred, we wouldn't have this perception in our minds of him as a huge injury risk. However, because of Zac Taylor's inconsistent commitment to Mixon returning to the lineup last year, fantasy managers have a bad taste in their mouths. Go get some mouthwash, clean out that taste, and draft Mixon at a major discount this year. The production's going to be too good to pass up and if you can get him as a RB2 on your roster, you're well on your way to a fantasy championship.Did you know that over the past two seasons, Hopkins leads the entire NFL in total targets with 310? And that he's second in the entire league with 2,572 receiving yards in that same time span? There seems to be no safer option for fantasy football at the top of your draft than Nuk in this Cardinals offense. While he might not have the upside that Davante Adams does because of his touchdown totals, we know that he's going to bring an incredibly safe floor each and every week with his guaranteed volume in this offense. Hopkins should be off the board as a top-5 WR this year.

Mixon is a rare three down RB. He's excellent at catching passes and a talented runner. The comp scouts gave when he came out of college was LeVeon Bell. Gio Bernard left for Tampa in free agency so he should get the third down work. The concern: 1.) Did the Bengals do enough in the offseason up front to help the blocking for Mixon and Burrow? They signed Riley Reiff in free agency and drafted Jackson Carman out of Clemson. Mixon might be a year away from fantasy greatness. He has the chops. That's not in doubt. The question, is that enough in 2021? If things break right- (aka- Joe Burrow must stay healthy)- then yes!It's hard to believe a WR as talented as DeAndre Hopkins only had 6 TDs in 2020. That should improve this year. He's more comfortable in the offense, has a better rapport with QB Kyler Murray, and the Cardinals upgraded their line. The loss of star DB Patrick Peterson in free agency could lead to plenty of shootouts in the NFC West. If that happens and I'm the Cardinals, I would play WarGames and Nuke them!

Though Mixon is collectively viewed as a "pass-catching back," his career high in single-season receptions is just 43 from 2018. He was on pace to blow his rushing and receiving numbers out of the water in 2020 before injury caused him to miss 10 games. Still, it's worth noting that Mixon has never racked up 1,500 scrimmage yards or double-digit touchdowns, and he's never finished higher than RB9 in a single season.Are AJ Green and Rondale Moore really going to impact D-Hop's fantasy outlook in 2021? Unlikely. This guy is the model of elite consistency, having gone for at least 1,100 yards and 6 TDs in six of eight seasons.

No Gio Bernard. No real rookie competition added. Even more explosive offense with Chase here assuming Burrow is healthy. Line may suck, but Mixon is easily one of the top winners of the offseason -- and OC has publicly stated he has "no interest in load management" as Mixon looks like the best player in camp

Over the final nine games of 2019, Zac Taylor gave Mixon 214 touches (23.8 per game), which made us believe they'd finally realized he should be used in a workhorse fashion. The start of 2020 wasn't as generous, but he did average 19.7 touches per game over the first three weeks. Then we saw Giovani Bernard get knocked out of the lineup for a few weeks, and it led to Mixon totaling 27.0 touches per game over the next three weeks before getting hurt. Now that Bernard is gone, are we finally going to get a full season's worth of 20-plus touch games for Mixon? If so, top-five is in the realm of possibilities, especially knowing he'll be more involved in the passing game. Don't sleep on Mixon; he's still a top-10 running back talent-wise.When drafting a wide receiver in the first couple rounds, you can't afford to miss on them. Is there anyone more reliable than Hopkins? He's now seen at least 150 targets in six straight seasons and has finished as a top-five receiver in five of them. Sure, the Cardinals added A.J. Green and Rondale Moore, but that's not going to stop Kyler Murray from going to his favorite target.

If Mixon can stay healthy, HC Taylor is basically showing his cards that he plans to make him one of the highest volume RBs in the NFLMove over Michael Thomas, the NFL WR class has a new model of consistency - 150+ targets in 6 straight seasons, 14+ FAN PPG in 5 of those 6 campaigns

 Hopkins saw 160 targets and a 29% target share in his first year with Arizona, and finished as the fifth-best wide receiver in fantasy in half-PPR formats. It wasn't a perfect season for the veteran, as he was somewhat inconsistent, being held to 55 or fewer yards in seven of his 16 games and scoring just six touchdowns. But at least some of that inconsistency was due to Kyler Murray playing through a shoulder injury, and the simple fact is Hopkins saw fewer than seven targets in just one game last year. The addition of Rondale Moore in the draft shouldn't have much of an impact on Hopkins, who will again command a dominant target share and be an outstanding WR1 again if healthy.

Mixon has averaged only 4.5 and 4.0 yards per touch the last two years and he missed 10 games with injury last year. Mixon has a ton of talent, but he is a dicey RB2 due to injuries and a bad offensive line.Hopkins had 230.3 fantasy points in 16 games this year and Hopkins should continue to have fantasy success playing with Kyler Murray still on the ascent.

Beware of the narrative of "improved OL." The addition of rookies can be a great thing for an offensive line, i.e. last year's Tampa Bay Bucs, but it can also make a glaring problem worse, i.e. last year's NY Giants. Mixon will likely see insane volume, but he has been historically inefficient and, unless 2nd-round-pick OT Jackson Carman is a transcendent talent, there is no way you can predict, with a straight face, Mixon will be more efficient with his opportunities. Unless you are getting Mixon as your RB 2 in the late second or third round of your drafts, stay away.First they asked if he could succeed with scrubs at QB. The answer was yes. Then, they asked if he could succeed with a terrible coach. The answer was yes. Then they asked if he could replicate his success on a new team. Yes. In the air raid. Yes. With a running QB. Yes. No more questions.

Entering his fifth season in the NFL, Joe Mixon is once again set up for a massive fantasy campaign -- on paper, at least. We've been here before with Mixon and it hasn't always gone according to plan. For those who view him as injury prone following a frustrating 2020 in the health department, it's important to note that he appeared in 44-of-48 possible games from 2017-19. The departure of Gio Bernard to the Bucs gives Mixon a legitimate chance at seizing a three-down workload in (likely) the best/fastest offense he has ever played in. It's set up for him to smash. O n paper, at least...

It's easy to understand people being frustrated with Joe Mixon in 2020, but once Joe Burrow was done, there was no reason to push him back onto the field after his injury. The Bengals invested heavily in Joe Mixon last off season, and there are no challengers to his position in the offense. He also had back to back 1K yard rushing seasons before 2020's disappointment. Having faith and buying back into Mixon for '21 is a good idea and will be rewarded.
