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 o
ne of the top winners of the offseason.

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.

In all fairness, Mixon didn't move at all in my post-draft rankings because things played out exactly the way that I was predicting. The Bengals moved on from Giovani Bernard and only replaced him with Chris Evans in the 6th round. Zac Taylor has been vocal about wanting to feed Mixon the ball and there's very little competition elsewhere on this roster. Additionally, the Bengals did invest in the offensive line in the second round of the NFL Draft to pair with their free agent signing of Riley Reiff. Mixon has the questions surrounding him and his durability, but as long as he's on the field, he's going to help fantasy managers win some games.

24yo - Joe is a casualty of a terrible offensive line. He also had a foot injury most of last season which resulted in a declining ypc for the 2nd straight season (4.9, to 4.1 to 3.6). Lowest yards per reception of his 4 years (6.6). Anyone holding likely won't sell for this price, but this is where I'd consider buying him.
