Joe Mixon Week 13 Outlook - Chargers at Bengals

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Thu, Dec 2nd 2021, 6:56am EST

Mixon has been on a touchdown rampage, with two TDs in each of his last four games and at least one TD in each of his last eight games. He's scored 13 touchdowns in 11 games, and Weeks 2-3 were the only times this season when he wasn't able to find his way into the end zone. Over the last two weeks, Mixon has had 58-288-4 rushing, hammering away at the Raiders and Steelers in one-sided Cincinnati victories. Mixon could carry a heavy load this weekend against the Chargers, who have given up 1,598 rushing yards this season, more than any other team in the league. Opposing running backs are averaging 4.7 yards per carry against the Chargers and gouging them for 24.0 fantasy points per game. Mixon is the RB2 this week. At $8,100 on DraftKings, Mixon is rather pricey for a back who doesn't catch many passes, but it's hard to say it's too expensive for a player who's so red-hot.
