Underrated aspect of Henry's blistering 8-game stretch (203/1273/11 rushing): not only is it the 2nd-most rushing yards in an 8-game stretch in history, but it comes against teams a combined 24 games above .500. @AdamHarstadMixon jumps off the page as an RB who did a lot with nothing last year, but I'm nervous about a potential holdout.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Derrick Henry was a fantasy football superstar last year and finished the season with 16 rushing touchdowns! While that's unlikely to repeat, he still belongs in the top-tier RB conversation and is a solid pick towards the back end of the first round in your draft.Joe Mixon has always had the talent to be a fantasy football star, but the offenses he's been tied to have struggled the past several seasons. Now, the Bengals have Joe Burrow leading the offense and this should be one of the league's most unstoppable units. If that's the case, there are going to be plenty of scoring opportunities for Mixon in 2020. If you miss out on the "Top 5", don't worry about it...scoop up Mixon and celebrate.
Brandon Funston

75+ rush yards in 18 of past 22 games (playoffs inc.) - led NFL in Yards Created (yards gain after 1st evaded tackle) and Yards After Contact/Attempt in 2019Finished in backend of RB1 class each of past 2 seasons despite tough environment - if rookie QB J. Burrow can deliver on hype, that's a big boon for Mixon
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Yes, Derrick Henry finished with 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns last year en route to a No. 3 finish. Yes, he was dominant in the playoffs. We still can't forget that he was the No. 14 running back in points per game before Week 10 last year, behind David Johnson and Mark Ingram. Should we automatically assume Henry picks up where he left off in 2019? My issue with Henry is that he's not involved in the passing-game, which lowers his weekly floor. That alone will allow us to choose someone like Alvin Kamara over him. Henry is best-suited as a second-round pick rather than one in the first round.It's one thing to project a breakout for a player due to an increase in opportunity. It's another thing to project a breakout due to an increase in offensive production. Mixon got the opportunity last year under Zac Taylor, as he totaled 18-plus touches on 10 different occasions. But he'll need the offense to take a step forward in 2020 if he wants to ascend into stardom, as he's been an RB2 or better in just 57 percent of his games over the last two years. You must pay attention to his contract status as you approach drafts because Mixon has stated he'll hold out without an extension. This is a real thing with running backs, as they're trying to preserve their health while cashing in on a second contract. Stay tuned.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Henry led the league in rushing yards and finished the season with 1,746 yards and 18 total touchdowns on the season. His historic postseason run led to a franchise tag and with QB Ryan Tannehill back, he should be a RB1 again in 2020.Mixon had a horrible start to the season, but finished the year strong and he had 1424 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns on the season. The Bengals should have a new quarterback in 2020 with their first overall pick, which should make him a more consistent RB1 in 2020.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
3 drops on 23 targets. 2019 was his worst year of passpro according to PFF. Relying on TDs and elite production, strictly from the ground, needing a great oline, requires some big truss.How many more terrible situations does he have to survive before he finally gets a real supporting cast? The team has finished in the bottom half of the league in yards and points the last 3 seasons. Mixon manages to survive as RB34(rookie year where he only started 7 games), 9, and 13.
